Product Details


Coming out with one of the most anticipated and long-awaited albums so far on Brainfeeder is Samiyam aka Sam Baker. Sam Baker's Debut Album is 40 minutes of pure listening pleasure, a series of woozy, off-centre hip hop instrumentals drawing heavily on Baker's love of electronic funk but never in hock to it. Intensely detailed and carrying considerable emotional weight, this is not Rap Beats Volume 2 but an album of fully-realised pieces of music which stand on their own without the need for an MC's intervention.

Ann Arbor native, Samiyam (born Sam Baker) moved to Los Angeles in 2006. In his short time out West, he has become one of the city's most progressive and recognized producers, a man who has spearheaded the revival of interest in instrumental hip-hop music over the last few years. Baker's Rap Beats Vol.1 collection was the very first release on Brainfeeder. He has also collaborated with old friend Flying Lotus as Flyamsam as well as having releases on Hyperdub and Poo-Bah records.

Samiyam describes the work contained in his Debut album simply as, "my favourite stuff" - and what could be better than that?

Comment: This record is dope. I've dug Sams shit since Rap beats 1. A good handful of these tracks were already released in their unmastered, or original/extended form. Some of those joints I liked in their original state, over the new ones. Like Bricks, for instance. This is solid shit. A lot of cats are very close minded to shit that isn't a 90bpm robotically quantized sped-up soul sample shit. And god forbid somebody flex on anything other than the 2000XL. THis is what its about. Experimentation. Shuffly, thumping drums, off-kilter chops, and dope ass synths. Sam Baker is like Snakefinger for the SP series. Real talk.

Comment: sick production on this. there's definitely a uniqueness and recognizable quality to the beats on this album. it's important for producers to develop their own sound, and samiyam did that with this record

Comment: Samiyam is probably the dopest producer of alternative hip hop out there. This is going to be one of the best albums of 2011. I'd take Samiyam over Flying Lotus any day! Pre-order & post-order this or die!
