Jessie Ware and Sampha- “Valentine”

This man here is Sampha, an artist who was heavily involved with SBTRKT (I covered this a few months back). Joining him is Jessie Ware, who also worked with SBTRKT. Now why is it so important that I share that information with you all? Something tells me that SBTRKT contacted both individuals to work with him as a result of hearing a fantastic post-dubstep collaboration between these two.

It’s a beautiful video, shot in black and white. Cut in between shots of Jessie Ware and Sampha singing are props suspended in mid air and other still lifes. Overall the stripped down production of the video perfectly matches with the minimalist sound itself. Another neat thing about the video is that throughout the video you see Jessie Ware and Sampha singing in separate shots, but with the closing seconds of the video, you finally see them together. I hope there are more collaborations between these two, because songs like this one make me much more interested in the post-dubstep genre than your usual wobble wobbles of  dubstep.
