READY, SET, LOOP
Fresh from recent appearances at South by Southwest in Austin and at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, U.K. beatmaker SBTRKT hits New York this week for a pair of engagements, including tonight’s Webster Hall concert and a DJ set (with "very special guests") Monday at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Although it's already sold out, we recommend the live show, which features vocal and keyboard contributions by Sampha; he gave several tunes on SBTRKT's self-titled 2011 debut a sensual future-soul vibe that called up fond memories of two-step softie Craig David. With Willis Earl Beal, a mythology-cultivating Chicago folkie who also headlines the Mercury Lounge on Sunday.
