I saw these guys listed on iTunes and was intrigued by the African looking mask and decided to have a listen. I love it, and hope to see them play in Nottingham this Feb. Their sound is mint, so I hope you like it as much as I do. Enjoy x

” I would rather not talk about myself as a person, and let the music speak for itself. The name SBTRKT is me taking myself away from that whole process. I’m not a social person, so having to talk to DJs to make them play a record is not something I want to do. It’s more about giving them a record as an anonymous person and seeing whether they like it or not. If they play it, they play it.”
