U.K. producer SBTRKT — a.k.a. "subtract," or Aaron Jerome to his mates — actually operates by an additive property: Begin with equal portions of Chicago house's insistent thump, dubstep's throaty bass, U.K. funky's Afro-Latin percussion, and modern R&B's stuttering synths; add vocalists Sampha, Jessie Ware, Roses Gabor, and Yukimi Nagano; and the result is a purring amalgam of urban music in Britain. In concert Jerome and Sampha syncopate live drumming, expressive knob modulation, and soulful crooning, transforming moments of powerful restraint into something more like tribal euphoria. Neither the rhythmic flurries nor the vocal overlays overpower one another, and the contrast of bruised sequencing and honeyed melodies makes for a decadent resonance that pitches subwoofers into overdrive.
