London-based DJ/producer Aaron Jerome aka SBTRKT put out a beautiful self-titled debut last year and just released this clip for “Hold On” with singer and collaborator Sampha. The clip is a sad one; a sort of Groundhog Day for a guy who keeps watching his lady leave him.
This one’s a winner. 32 artists / 32 tracks featuring SBTRKT, Youth Lagoon, Spank Rock, Rainbow Arabia, Destroyer, Real Estate, Phantogram,YACHT, Beastie Boys, Cults, Santigold, Friends, M83 and more.
Memorial Day weekend brings the Sasquatch Festival to The Gorge outside of Seattle. Jack White, Bon Iver, Girl Talk, Tenacious D, The Shins, Kurt Vile and lots more.
OK, the lineup for this year’s Primavera Festival is outrageous: A$AP Rocky, AraabMUZIK, Atlas Sound, Beirut, Björk, Black Lips, Danny Brown, Death Cab For Cutie, Death Grips, Dirty Beaches, Girls, Grimes, Hype Williams, Japandroids, Justice, Liturgy, Mazzy Star, Melvins, Napalm Death, Neon Indian, OFF!, Real Estate, Refused, SBTRKT, Sharon Van Etten, Spiritualized, The Cure, The Drums, The Rapture, The War On Drugs, The xx, Trash Talk, Washed Out, Wavves, Wilco, Yo La Tengo and about a hundred other bands.
UK DJ/producer SBTRKT says he stays masked in order to avoid distraction from the music, though his choice of cover is pretty spectacular. Lovely Roses Gabor holds our attention.
Stereogum gives us a fantastic, two-volume mixtape, made just for summer. Featuring: The Weeknd, John Maus, YACHT, J Masics, Hooray For Earth, Cold Cave, Washed Out, and lots more.
This song has completely wormed it’s way into my brain: understated and sexy (that bassline!), this is the first single from London producer SBTRKT’s new self-titled EP, and features Swedish electro group, Little Dragon.
