On March 24, Brasky is proud to present SBTRKT, live at the Orpheum. SBTRKT (hint, “Subtract”) is the alias of London producer/musician Aaron Jerome, who is making his first US tour following a tremendously successful self-titled album in 2011. Don’t just take it from us-the album found its way onto many top 10 lists in 2011, including the #1 spot for two of The Guardian‘s music critics.
Expect to see SBTRKT donning his characteristic tribal mask, part of a larger initiative encouraging listeners and DJs to evaluate his music on its own merits-to “subtract” personal attributions and focus on the music (Seem unusual? Jerome certainly doesn’t take the anonymity angle as far as another UK producer).
SBTRKT is usually accompanied by Sampha who contributes vocals and keyboard work. Look for the live set to include performance and not just DJ’ing:
