I’ve seen SBTRKT’s (pronounced ‘subtract’) name thrown around on the internet quite a bit, but never did take the time to really check him out until recently. SBTRKT started out his career as a DJ and consequentially, is heavy on the electronic side, and almost borderline dub-steppy. With all the electronics going on, many songs still manage to have guest vocals- most commonly added by a musician named Sampha. SBRTKT isn’t music I would listen to all the time, but everyone needs dance music when you get in those dance-tastic moods. Many of the bands playing at Bonnaroo don’t exactly play “dance” music, so I think SBTRKT will be one of the sets where people will be putting their dance pants on to get down in the Tennessee heat.
