SBTRKT releases gruesome new video for ‘Trials of the Past’ (NSFW)

In Music by Kevin Camps / January 14, 2013


Aaron Jerome, better known as SBTRKT, has been releasing awesome down-tempo house/ dubstep music for some years now. Remixing the likes of Underworld, Radiohead, and Modeselektor, the east London prodigy should be a staple in your musical rotation. His 2011 self-titled album is one of my favorites in recent memory—if you have not picked it up yet you are missing out.

Today we get a video for “Trials of The Past”-one of the album’s gems. The song starts out with a simple electronic beat that drops into a classic R&B track. The soothing vocals contrast with the harsh beat. The video is even more awesome. It takes place in a barbershop where cyborgs are dismembered and put back together with new faces. This video will make some squeamish so if your boss is right behind you I would probably wait to watch it until later.

Check out the video below and pick up the album here.
