SBTRKT - "Blue Cassette" (Friendly Fires Cover)

Masked UK producer SBTRKT and his long-time collaborator Sampha recently took over BBC Radio 1’s live lounge to lay down a session for Annie Mac, as part of Radio 1’s specialist takeover. Recorded live in the Abbey Road studios, the duo first performed “Hold On” from SBTRKT’s self titled debut album before launching into a dazzling rendition of Friendly Fires’ “Blue Cassette”.

Maybe it was inevitable that SBTRKT would cover a Friendly Fires track, as they’ve shared stages all over Europe and recently announced that FF frontman Ed Macfarlane will be guesting on SBTRKT’s forthcoming sophomore album, but who’d have thought that the results would have been so stunning? Download the MP3 below and witness SBTRKT and Sampha taking the Friendly Fires’ summer anthem out of the festival fields and into the deep regions of UK Bass.
