SBTRKT

SBTRKT is an anonymous producer based in London. Graciously allowing the music to speak for itself - even going to the length of performing behind a mask every time he plays out. Having just wrapped up remixes for Basement Jaxx (‘Scars’) and Franz Ferdinand (‘Send Him Away’), he’s got the airwaves in a stir with Benji B, Mary Anne Hobbs and Gilles Peterson singing his praises. With releases forthcoming on the equally anonymous Brainmath label, Ramp Recordings and the ever fun Young Turks.

5 things about SBTRKT.

1) SBTRKT its short for subtract. 2) The name came about to create a musical identity separate from any single person. 3) Much of the music being played is electronic based but some future material will be live. 4) First gig was at fabric in Room 1 at Get Familiar (amazing sound/vibe!. 5) It’s not an alias of Switc.

SBTRKT sound. The main thing is the synths, arrangement and syncopation. I tend to play around with chords or pads first, and then start applying some drums to it. Even though I guess I write ‘bass music’ I tend to add bass in last; rhythm and arrangement are most important for me. A lot of people seem to mention ‘2 step’ alongside my name guess it’s just because of the syncopation that genre entailed. « hide
