[Listen] SBTRKT - "Gloss"

After a short hiatus (it was May when he last graced us with a new track), SBTRKT is back with a brand new cut titled "Gloss". The three-minute track is very minimalist, but it works so well in this situation. Simple synth repetitions and subtle percussion make this perfectly fitting for those late nights.
