SBTRKT, “Wildfire” Drumma Boy remix featuring Little Dragon and Shabazz Palaces

August 15, 2011

Hot stuff from Drumma Boy, Shabazz Palaces, who put out the critic’s choice (so far) of hip-hop album of the year, and Little Dragon, who is making a ton of noise from their track on SBTRKT’s new album. Actually, this track is amazing—smooth and rich with Yukimi’s soaring vocals, the Sade-from-the-80’s vibe and just enough synths to give it a bit of rough edge, while Ish reminds us all how butter his flow can be.

Hey, aren’t Shabazz and Little Dragon supposed to perform at Bumbershoot in Seattle, both on Friday, September 3, at the same stage, one set right after another? Hmmmmmmm.
