The single comes from SBTRKT's self-titled debut album released in 2011 which placed number 42 on Pitchfork's Top 50 albums of 2011.
SBTRKT consists of the artist Aaron Jerome who consciously remains anonymous in order that "the music (can) speak for itself." He is a self taught producer who mixes elements of dubstep, 2-step, garage, house, soul, and techno into a bass-heavy blend of flowing melodies and intricate percussion.
SBTRKT has remixed songs by artists such as M.I.A, Radiohead, Modeselektor, Basement Jaxx, Mark Ronson, Underworld and Goldie while his originals have played on the BBC Radio 1 and Radio 6 Music.

PS. - The mask he wears are native and ancient inspired with multiple influences ranging from India to Central and South America. On the website okayafrica.com he talked about specific examples: "I do like the 3D masks of the Dogon people and perhaps the triangles you might see on masks from the Congo. I love the use of colour from Aztec art in general, but I’m also really into colourful wildlife too."
