Mysterious masked London DJ SBTRKT has announced Australian gigs and we’re going to get to see in person the London, New York and Los Angeles hipsterati are raving about. Hand picking the best elements of two decades worth of dance sub-genres to make one of the year’s most stunning electronic albums, tracks are sewn together effortlessly; telling a tale – from the ballad-esque ‘Trials of the Past’ to the self-conscious reflections of ‘Never Never’ and the squelchy pop of the album’s first single ‘Wildfire’; which saw it pick up Triple J’s album of the week recently.
SBTRKT says “This release is the culmination of a longer period of constant writing and collaboration, tracks on previous EPs were written as singular pieces. This record is much more of a whole project, more representative of my thoughts and ideas as an artist and each track was completed with the aim to be coherent together.”Appearing at Música/Tumbalong in Sydney, as well as additional club performances in Melbourne and Perth, SBTRKT will be performing the kind of stunning DJ set that has earned him rave reviews for festival appearances.
