SBTRKT

When: Fri., Oct. 24, 9 p.m. 2014

In the past few years, as EDM and dubstep flooded the market, the trick became one of trying to distinguish artist from artist. It wasn’t always easy. SBTRKT, however, showed up on London’s electronic scene and started making waves quickly. This was in the late 2000s, when nights at clubs spent remixing Radiohead and the like soon blended into larger stages and a debut album in 2011. “Wildfire,” featuring Little Dragon on vox, became the album’s hit of sorts, putting the masses in touch with SBTRKT’s unique DJ style. Rather than dwell on breaks and builds, SBTRKT focuses on songs’ compositional integrity. His stuff borders on jazz -- in mechanics -- at times. It’s a heady approach, and one that’s garnered him a nice niche in the electronic world. As for the name? "[I'd] rather not talk about myself as a person, and let the music speak for itself. The name SBTRKT is me taking myself away from that whole process,” he said. (Sandy)
