blahnket presents SAMIYAM @ The Clubhouse, Canberra
The Clubhouse and b l a h n k e t are over the moon with excitement in welcoming a living legend to perform in our part of the world. 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.
"The intellectual offspring of David Cronenberg and the RZA, but specially touched by Michael Jackson." - LA Record
"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." - Dazed and Confused
"Warped out and offbeat, his beats are a piece of art."- Jneiro Jarel (Shape Of Broad Minds, Lex Records)
INFORMATION ON TICKETING + SUPPORTING ACTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
