Buy! - (Young Turks)
The debut full-length album from frequently-masked, London-based electronic producer Aaron Jerome (aka SBTRKT, short for subtract) is a brilliant set of innovative, emotive electronic-pop that beautifully marries his crisp, syncopated, cutting-edge beats with soulful vocals from a stellar cast of guest singers. UK's Sampha is the main breakout vocalist on the record, contributing his heartfelt, R&B-leaning voice to six tracks, Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano appears on the funky, slinky single "Wildfire," while Jessie Ware ("Right Thing To Do") and Roses Gabor ("Pharaohs") help out in fine form as well. Personally, this is going down as one of my favorite records of the year. 7/1/2011 - Alex
