what you’ve done
what you’ve done
you can’t keep inside
by the end of the night, i’ll help you confide
cause i can see, see your sad self
cause i can see, you’re not being yourself

Listen: SBTRKT – Hold On

Aaron Jerome, also known as SBTRKT, released his debut self-titled album last year on the British label Young Turks. Full of so many beautiful tiny details, SBTRKT provide sounds of 2step, funk, dubstep, smooth R&B and Chicago house. A headphone lover’s true paradise, the unforgettable beats along with the sensual guest vocals of SBTRKT’s sidekick Sampha, and Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano on the track Drake remixed Wildfire. Although new to officially sharing for himself, he is no stranger to the music industry with previous popular DJing work in East London, and remixes for the likes of MIA, Radiohead, Basement Jaxx, Mark Ronson and Underworld. Some call SBTRKT the new Timbaland for the new generation, but what’s for sure is everything he creates turns into smooth, electronic, magic.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
