Who Is SBTRKT?

His Influences

SBTRKT: "I love Timbaland's stuff. N.E.R.D was a really big influence. They were artists that were able to establish their own sound and also produce for other people. The ambitiousness of their songs really inspired me. It's something soulful, but it trips up and does something original and unique every time.

"Growing up, I was into everything from Michael Jackson to New Jack Swing and Bobby Brown to Public Enemy. Then I really got into electronic music. House music like Masters At Work was a really big influence on me early on. Stuff like 'The Nervous Track' by Nuyorican Soul. Then I got into the new UK genres like drum-n-bass, trip-hop, and UK garage. I’ve always been inspired by a lot of music."
