SBTRKT x Sampha perform “Hold On,” cover Friendly Fires for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge [Audio]

As part of BBC Radio 1’s specialist takeover, SBTRKT and frequent collaborator Sampha joined Annie Mac in the legendary Live Lounge to perform an amazing session yesterday. The elusive masked producer performed a sprawling seven-minute long version of single “Hold On” and a really impressive cover of Friendly Fires‘ “Blue Cassette.”

SBTRKT’s self-titled debut LP was another massively-acclaimed album which featured on many critics 2011 “Best Of…” lists. Definitely worth checking that one out if you haven’t already – it’s packed with great songs and innovative production, and heavily features Sampha and Jessie Ware, who we’ll no doubt be hearing a lot more of in years to come.
