Kicking the Halloween weekend off in top notch music style, SBTRKT returns to SF with an all new Live show! Design is at the heart of this project: first the instruments, then the songs and finally the masks. Whilst massively prolific, a minimalist ethos runs through the work and style of SBTRKT, not just in the name but in the precision of the sonics and arrangements. Mixing up elements of UK garage, house, electro-pop, 'post dubstep,' SBTRKT is constantly pushing the boundaries of electronic music.
After dropping audacious white-label re-rubs of Goldie & Radiohead in 2009, SBTRKT announced himself in 2010 with releases on dubstep stalwarts Ramp + Brainmath & eclectic indie label, Young Turks. Remixes for M.I.A., Modeselektor & Basement Jaxx soon followed and have left the clubs wanting more; the masked man has obliged in the form of recent collaborative bangers w/ Sinden & Sampha and a remix and praise by chart-topping rapper Drake. Whilst record heads and shop salesmen argue over whether SBTRKTs sound is more "techno","neo-garage" or "dubstep", the debut album with releases on Tempa, Young Turks and Monkeytown place him comfortably in any category he wishes to occupy. The album, entitled 'SBTRKT', has been quickly hailed by Pitchfork (8.1 rating), Rollingstone, The Fader, Billboard Magazine, The Guardian, Beatport, SPIN, XLR8R, Resident Advisor, and more. SBTRKT is taking the music world by storm! Audiences at live shows will find SBTRKT on drums and Sampha on vocals and synths.
