Los Angeles, United States
SAMIYAM is a Michigan-born experimental electronic instrumental beatmaker residing in LA, producing glitched-out, hip-hop oriented tracks significant of his own style.
As a BRAINFEEDER artist, the homie has released two electronic hip-hop albums; “Rap Beats Vol.1” (2008), and “Sam Baker’s Album” (2011). Both albums showcase the SAMIYAM style of beatmanship, which is symbolic of boombap type hip-hop layered with fat, grinding analog synth sounds. Each experimental beat is different in its own right, pushing boundaries with weird sample selections, mainly evident in Sam Baker’s Album.
Sam has been quiet on the scene in recent years, and according to his twitter, he is currently working on rap beats for a bunch of different rappers he has sourced. Thus we wait in anticipation for his next release.
In the mean time, cop both SAMIYAM albums here:
