So today’s artist I have been meaning to give you for ages, and every time I did something got in the way. So finally I am getting to it. Aaron Jerome goes by the name SBTRKT (subtract) not to be confused with MSTKRFT (mastercraft). Although his name is just a copy cat – his music is far from it. This incredibly different and complex sound I have never heard anywhere.
First he was well known for his remixes of alternative songs but then things exploded when mid 2011 Young Turks released his self-titled debut album. No looking back from then and for good reasons. Although Aaron is doing what he can for the fame not go to him personally but to his music by wearing ceremonial masks which he has become famous for.
I had trouble deciding which song to give you as they are all so different and contrasting. So here is Hold On.
But then me the favour of listening to the start of Pharaohs and then skip to 2:17. That build up is PRICELESS.
