Sampha has been extremely quiet on the releases front lately, but for good reason/s: he’s been touring around the globe as the non-masked face and voice of SBTRKT’s live shows and, in between performances, he’s been hatching a plan with 20-year-old Welsh-born producer, Koreless, to become the next UK dance music double act to take over.
The pair have united as Short Stories, Young Turks’ new venture, and their debut single, “Let It Go” – which is the B-side to the melodic sounds of “On The Way” – features a funky drum pattern, high-pitched and chopped vocals, and computer game-like bleeps and stabs to give it that futuristic stamp of approval. Sounds pretty mad, right? Wrong! Easy electronic listening at its best.
