It's been a long time coming....
I knew that this day was finally coming after hearing that the masters were getting mixed some months back. I met Samiyam aka Sam Baker almost 4 yrs ago and he had begun even then to establish his sound which had a foot in the beat science, but also had a foot in classic straight up and down hip hop. Since 2007, he's had some releases ranging from straight indie-out-the-trunk, to some from Hyperdub, Beat Dimension, to (of course) Brainfeeder as well as a bunch of remixes. But we all sat waiting for that one... The time is now here. June 28th will be the date for the Sam Baker's Album.
I still recall 2 key moments in the last few yrs: Flying Lotus playing me some advance music in a car ride, and Sam himself playing me bangers as well. That's all I needed to hear. So to start it all off, we have a leak from the good ppl @ Brainfeeder. For those familiar with Samiyam's music, this track might ring a familiar refrain, but it's a banger nonetheless, and one you can now own courtesy of XLR8R.
SAMIYAM - Cushion by BRAINFEEDER
Here's to what will assuredly be a dope record in late June. We here waiting man. Say wrd.
