After wowing fans and critics alike with his acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2011, London-based producer SBTRKT has been a virtual ghost. Although he put out a live album earlier this year, we haven’t seen much of his new music. It looks like he heard us calling, because the masked tribal man is back with a brand new edit of Drake’s hit song, Girls Love Beyonce.
The rework is a refreshing take on the original, offering stripped-down vocals, hypnotizing broken-beat percussions, and an airy, dream-like atmosphere. Although Drake’s crooning is now non-existent, James Fauntleroy’s smooth voice remains in all its sultriness. It’s a great track to kick back to, so here’s hoping that this is just a prelude to another full-length album release.
