Watch out, watch out

London based producer SBTRKT has been concocting quite the repertoire of original tunes, all the while remaining anonymous. He even performs behind strange tribal masks in what I can only assume is an attempt to let the music speak for itself. Either way, I bring you two tracks that he recently released. The first track features an amazing vocal line from the lead singer of Little Dragon, Yukimi Nagano. She was born and raised in Sweden to a Swedish/American mother and a Japanese father... which makes her soulful R&B voice all the more riveting to listen to. This track is somewhere between electro and dub; it really has a unique feel.

On the second track, we have yet another interesting vocalist, Sampha. He is complemented by some deeeeep bass synths and energetic percussion. At a mere 2 minutes and 54 seconds, this song leaves you wanting more.

Steed Lord has an upcoming EP that is set to be released in June. They uploaded a track from this EP to their sound cloud a week ago and since then I haven't been able to get enough. Funky, fresh, filter house just in time for summer. Buy the high quality version of this track here. Check out those fantastic chopped vocal bits around the 3:40 mark.

The newest Kitsune Compilation #11 was released not too long ago. This compilation is aptly named the Indie Dance issue and I could not be happier with my purchase. Be sure to stop by their site to check out everything they have to offer. Here are my three favorites from the collection just to give you a taste:

They also have a fantastic clothing line. Here's a promo video for their 2011 Fall/Winter collection.

Now for a bit of shameless self promotion... I uploaded one of my own dj sets to my SoundCloud a few weeks ago. If you like electro music, especially house, I would wager to say that you'll enjoy this mix. Track list below. Download here if you wish: Block Party Set Part 1
