Every time we heard some brilliant bit of midnight bass romance this year, it always turned out to involve SBTRKT. The DJ changed the aim of dubstep’s sonic cannon, from 
the bowels of Bristol drug dealers to the hearts of urban romantics. His debut was bruised basslines 
that beat heavy with anxiety, but his masterstroke was bringing together a group of unknown vocalists – Sampha, Jessie Ware, Roses Gabor – who embodied a lifetime of sprawling city pain in a single sighed note. This was the UK bass album 
you could cry in the shower to. SW
