SBTRKT Possibly Announces New Album, Premieres Ambient Groove ‘Flicker’
SBTRKT - Flicker (Original Mix)

SBTRKT’s Flicker has likely announced the masked maker of melodic bassquake’s return to releasing albums. In having more in common with classic Kraftwerk than modern bass, the left-leaning surprise offers intrigue for SBTRKT’s likely forthcoming album.

Flicker’s the first of a series of tracks set to be released since his 2014 album Wonder Where We Land. Regarding his third studio album, SBTRKT told Australia’s Triple J Radio and BBC Radio 1 to expect fewer collaborations and more grime-style tracks, a path divergent from tracks like 2011 smash Wildfire that gave him crossover success. Flicker features an ambient electro melody and breaks that snap at a glacial pace, creating a sound unlike anything else SBTRKT’s ever released.

While there’s no official word on when the album or single will be available for purchase, do stream the new track above.
