SBTRKT ft. Sampha ‘Temporary View’ (Official Video)

Screen-Shot-2014-06-10-at-5.40

Aaron Jerome’s project SBTRKT has continued to amaze and inspire, as the artist has yet again teamed up with his Young Turks bro SAMPHA to deliver the elegant slow burner, ‘Temporary View’.

Elasticising rigid synths and pulling them down to all different tonal lengths, ‘Temporary View’ makes quite a loud and proud entry. Momentarily slimming this element down to a softer melody, it collaborates with a group of young, twinkling samples, a slow beat and the opacity of notes that are hit rather heavily to conclude the song.

With a fresh environment attained as a result of the ample instrumentation, a generous dash of emotive power is too present, thanks to the esteemed vocals of Sampha, as he governs ‘Temporary View’ with his incredible depth and ridiculously large capacity; allowing us insight into the personal terrain that tells the story of the song that is so perfectly summarised by the title of the track.

Visually coupled with a powder blue vapour clouding over a beast-like figurine, the close of ‘Temporary View’ transforms it’s dreamy face for the expected worse, as a red filter beams over the soft space, flashing warning and promoting change.

Following up the release of his Transitions EPSBTRKT is said to be working on his second full-length album. With very little detail on that, keep an eye out for further information in the not-too-distant future!
