In retrospect, Sunday morning probably isn’t the best time to share this video with you. If I had the foresight to publish this story last night, you could well have found the perfect track to listen to whilst getting ready for a big Saturday night on the town. SBTRKT’s self-titled debut was released earlier this year via XL Recordings making the relatively unknown Aaron Jerome label mates with Radiohead, Adele and Sigur Ros. The label’s faith in Jerome’s unique talent paid off when the album was released to wild applause.
SBTRKT was hailed as “representing UK production at its best” (Drowned In Sound, 9/10) and “serving as a showcase for rising Brit soul singers Sampha and Jessie Ware” (Uncut, 4/5 Stars). ‘Pharaohs’ (featuring Roses Gabor) is a mellow dance tune with just enough zest to get you in the dancing mood.
