SBTRKT performs “Wildfire” live at Coachella 2012 [Video]


Where was Holographic Drake when you needed him?! The Canadian rapper/singer/wet wipe has made no secret of the fact that he’s a massive fan of SBTRKT and Sampha, and has turned up at their shows on more than one occasion.
Although he was nowhere to be seen at their Coachella appearance this weekend (perhaps owing to him being on an entirely different continent at the time), in his absence, SBTRKT played with Ableton and freaked his verse – the first of many neat tricks during this seven-minute rendition of the standout track from SBTRKT’s self-titled album. About three minutes in, the track suddenly transforms as it’s remixed live on stage – part of the reason why, despite there being no Drizzy and no Yukimi Nagano, this is still an unbelievably compelling performance.
