I downloaded this SBTRKT tune for a fashion event I was DJing at recently and have been caning it at home ever since. SBTRKT is the pseudonym of Aaron Jerome, a DJ who got his start at Plastic People, a club I used to frequent when I lived in London. He’s remixed tunes by tons of big names including MIA, Basement Jaxx, Mark Ronson and Radiohead. Johnson wants anonymity and so he chose the name SBTRKT explaining that he’d “rather not talk about myself as a person, and let the music speak for itself.” To support this he wears modern interpretations of native society ceremonial masks designed by Hidden Place. Very mysterious altogether!
I love the squelchy synths and minimal vibe of this track and the vocals by Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon are gorgeous. Enjoy!
