Samiyam Sam Baker Album
Samiyam - Sam Baker's Album
(LP/CD/Download) Brainfeeder, summer 2011

Sam Baker, alias Samiyam, is an instru­men­tal Hip-Hop pro­ducer from Ann Arbor, Michi­gan. He is best known for his work with exper­i­men­tal pro­ducer, Fly­ing Lotus, and his 8-bit Video Game inspired Hip-Hop beats. Ann Arbor's lat­est prodi­gal son and lover of sprin­kles on dough­nuts, takes the legacy of all Detroit's tal­ented musi­cal sons and daugh­ters and makes Hip Hop beats filled with snip­pets of Soul, Funk, 70's Italian hor­ror flick sound­tracks, Nin­tendo bonus level music, and 90's Hip Hop. Some­how, with this much con­tent, the beats still man­age to sound glo­ri­ously min­i­mal and dis­jointed. Fans like Benji B, Andrew Meza and XLR8R have been eagerly snap­ping up his tracks, as Sam freeze frames Elec­tro energy and spits it back out as twisted future Jazz. Dabrye is a fan, Daedelus describes him as "a thrilling sound to break the same­ness", and Fly­ing Lotus is his brother in arms (they col­lab­o­rate on the project FLYamSAM)...
