The anonymous, genre-busting London producer behind SBTRKT had a busy 2011, dropping his first self-titled album and quite a few singles besides, and he’s capping it off with “Ride to Freedom,” a new song that’ll be the b-side to his upcoming single, the Sampha-featuring “Hold On.”

In SBTRKT and his cohorts’ classic art-dubstep way, it’s heavy and bass-driven, all complex, clattering percussion, dizzying synth patterns, and chilly, ‘80s-inspired background drones. It’s futuristic and fascinating – every listen reveals hidden tidbits, new things to follow with your ear. Check it out.
