“This is music written over the last year, whilst recording for my second album. Much of the music I released before my debut album was instrumental and I want to continue to share this side of the music I make. This series of tracks is titled TRANSITIONS.” – SBTRKT
Over the last year SBTRKT has been hiding some music under his sleeve whilst recording for his second album. Each track is available to hear and download here. The six new instrumental tracks will be released on three individual 12″ records. The sleeves feature beautiful visual effects to compliment the songs and website.

The past few years have been meteoric for Jamie xx, who has earned a name for himself as one of the world’s hottest producers. In 2011 he crafted the underground hit ‘Far Nearer’ and collaborated with Gil Scott-Heron on the album We’re New Here, a re-envisioned version of Scott-Heron’s 2010 masterpiece I’m New Here. We’re New Here features Jamie’s brilliant remixes of ‘NY Is Killing Me’ and ‘I’ll Take Care of U’, which was later reworked by Drake and Rihanna for their worldwide #1 ‘Take Care’. In 2011, Jamie also reworked Radiohead’s track ‘Bloom’ for their remix album TKOLRMX123456.
