On October 7th (pushed back from September 23rd), SBTRKT returns with his new album, Wonder Where We Land, via Young Turks. Already we’ve seen the UK producer team up with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig (“New Dorp.New York”), Sampha (“Temporary View”), and Warpaint (“War Drums”). Now, for his latest offering, “Higher”, we see SBTRKT join forces with rising Georgia MC, Raury.
An atmospheric number lined with shadowy, buzzing synths, the track is highlighted by Raury’s slick, relentless, and pointed flow. The collaboration not only proves the 18-year-old hip-hop artist has a promising future ahead, but again displays SBTRKT’s skillful ear for producing — he knows how to complement his guests, never overshadowing or drowning them out.
Listen in below.
