Enigmatic masked producer SBTRKT has announced the details of his forthcoming Transitions EP series today along with a full stream of all six new tracks.
We heard the sublimely bit-crushed Hold The Line last month, which was revealed as the first taste of the Transitions EPs meant to bridge the gap between SBTRKT’s debut album and its hotly anticipated followup, expected later in the year.
These six new tracks (split up into three EPs of two tracks each) explore the crossroads of instrumental hip hop and downtempo/ambient electronics across a wide array of moods, all tied together with SBTRKT’s patentend shimmering, cavernous synth textures (replicated in the trippy background visuals on the Transitions site).
Transitions I is out in both vinyl and digital formats on May 5, with II following on May 19 and III arriving on June 2. Check out our choice cuts from the series above, and then stream the whole thing on SBTRKT’s website.
