Although last year’s “Wildfire” collaboration with Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano (which was remixed by Drake) proved to be one of his biggest hits, 2011 was a highlight year for masked producer SBTRKT. The London native released his debut self-titled full-length, and it included this Sampha-assisted gem, “Trials of the Past,” which has finally been projected to our screens.

Directed by Ross Anderson, the clip is equal parts gore and sci-fi, as we see a young girl take shelter from the pouring rain in a barbershop, only to have her hair (and head) quite literally scalped, revealing something very interesting underneath. No spoilers, though!

Watch the video after the jump…

SBTRKT’s LP is out now on iTunes via Young Turks.
