We know that everyone is listening to Aaliyah at all times, but it’s not often that anyone is able to accurately capture the smokey magic of the music she made with Timbaland. SBTRKT and Little Dragon get pretty close here, not that it necessarily sounds like that, but it’s the same vibe. Calling it a loving tribute wouldn’t be far off. “Wildfire” comes from SBTRKT’s upcoming self-titled album, out June 28th on Young Turks.
