Samiyam is Sam Baker, hip-hop producer working out of the same dusty corners of Los Angeles that brought us Flying Lotus, Jonwayne, Gaslamp Killer, Ras G and so many others. That's our neighborhood too, and it's great to finally get to work with Sam.
Sam Baker's Album was debut album, released on Brainfeeder in 2011. More recent credits include tracks from Captain Murphy's Duality and Earl Sweatshirt's Doris.
Wish You Were Here is his first release with Leaving Records & Stones Throw. "I'm just trying to show where I'm coming from," he says, "I'm not about futuristic spaceship beats, just straight forward hip-hop."
