Who Am I Listening To: SBTRKT

Who’s on your summer playlist… if you don’t have SBTRKT then you’re seriously missing out.

SBTRKT is a musical project headed by British musician, Aaron Jerome.

Jerome has mixed alongside the likes of an exorbitant list of noteworthy musicians including the likes of M.I.A, Basement Jaxx, Radiohead, Sampha and Mark Ronson.

Dropping his first EP, ‘Musik Lace’ back in 2009, since then Jerome has produced an array of vivid, thought-provoking soundscapes.

His most recent album titled, ‘SAVE YOURSELF’ (2016) is described as a ‘dark optimism’, reflecting the current environmental catastrophes versus tomorrow’s space colonies.

‘SAVE YOURSELF’ also embraces the expertise of The-Dream, D.R.A.M, Mabel and Sampha.

But what makes Jerome stand out is his purposeful anonymity in his music endeavours, masking himself as SBTRKT, is more strategic than artistic in a sense.

“I’d rather not talk about myself as a person, an let the music speak for itself.

“The name SBTRKT is me taking myself away from the whole process,” Jerome said.

This summer why not add these three killer SBTRKT tracks to your playlist to take that summer party to a whole new level:

  1. Never Never (feat. Sampha)  –  Buy it 
  1. Hold On (feat. Sampha)  –  Buy it
  1. Wildfire  –  Buy It
