DOWNLOAD: SBTRKT - "Wildfire" (Drumma Boy remix ft. Shabazz Palaces) (MP3)
The North Coast Music Festival begins today, Friday, September 2nd. And on today's schedule is BrooklynVegan favorite SBTRKT though unfortunately the UK producer will only be playing a DJ set. Check him out anyway (06:30PM - 07:30PM on the North Coast stage), but if you miss it, you can also catch SBTRKT again at the Mid tonight, a NCMF official afterparty with Wolfgang Gartiner (the listing doesn't say, but we assume SBTRKT is only DJing at the Mid too).
SBTRKT released his debut and self-titled LP in June, and one of the many highlights of that album is the Little Dragon-featuring single "Wildfire" with vocals from Yukimi. Listen to that song below, along with the remix featuring Drake. Download a third version, featuring Shabazz Palaces, above. Catch Little Dragon live Sunday at North Coast Music Fest at 5:30pm on "The Named After Groupon Stage", after the Budos Band and before Gogol Bordello. More Little Dragon tour dates HERE.
The 2011 North Coast Music Festival is set to take place this upcoming holiday weekend (9/2 - 9/4) in Chicago's Union Park.
Gogol Bordello, Lotus, Of Montreal, Little Dragon, SBTRKT (DJ), Wiz Khalifa, Rusko, RJD2, Common, The Budos Band and many more will play the city's unoffical end of summer celebration over the course of three days.
