Again, though Sampha has been known as of late because of his collaborations of some of the biggest albums of 2016 like Solange Knowles Seat At The Table or Frank Ocean's visual album Endless, he has been known to collaborate with big names in the industry for quite some time. In fact, some of his earliest and most widely know work come from his collaborations with Aaron Jerome, the English artist behind SBTRKT.
Sampha started working with SBTRKT after meeting London producer Kwes and hanging around his soon to be label home Young Turks. There are a few tracks that Sampha did earlier that caught on, like his remix to The xx's "Basic Space", but this track "Hold On" from SBTRKT's 2011 self-titled album is probably one of his most significant early tracks.
This particular song is a great reference point for an artist like Sampha because it is the epitome of his discography, it's a hodgepodge. The alternating clanging of the steel drums and pulsating bass mixed with the soft rift of the synths laid by SBTRKT and Sampha's shimmering vocals make this track definitely sounds like a wonderful hodgepodge too and serves as an early example of the type of multi-talented artist Sampha is.
