And the cover of the week award goes to SBTRKT, hands down. His masks are dope, but seeing them through this holographic 3D lenticular sleeve is something else! You'll be hard pressed to find any records that looks like this in your collection. As for the music, you already know SBTRKT kills it on the forward bass hybrids. On "Hold On," he teams up with vocalist Sampha for some melodic house with a moody, melancholy touch. "Ride To Freedom" takes the flip with its bouncey bass riddims and tricked out arpeggios that sound like a NES on ecstasy. Also includes the Sisi Bak Bak remix for "Hold On." Limited edition, Recommended.
