Electronic music wunderkind SBTRKT performs live at the Rockhal to support second album “Wonder Where We Land”.
SBTRKT (pronounced Subtract) is the stage name used by British producer Aaron Jerome. He first came to notice with a number of high profile remixes and experimental instrumental tracks, then launched a hugely acclaimed and quite surprising pop oriented eponymously titled debut album.
Described in some quarters as post-dubstep, SBTRKT has since unleashed his second album, Wonder Where We Land. It has received mixed reviews though the mainstream press has been agog with acclaim.
Kitty Empire in The Observer, for example, writes that SBTRKT’s “dizzying electronic soundscapes are fleshed out by all sorts of voices” while in Paste, Adrian Spinelli said that “this is an album about vision, movement and manifestation.”
SBTRKT’s live show has been described as “flashily complex” and “revelling in mystery” by the Guardian.
Indeed, SBTRKT is a difficult artist to pigeonhole as he easily flirts with electro, dub and indie pop elements to produce songs of rare complexity.
