Release: Sampha EP – Dual
Basically, you can’t not have heard of Sampha. His mellifluous, silky voice has graced the tracks of some pretty heavy-hitters – SBTRKT, Jessie Ware, Drake…
He’s Brit radio gold at the moment, and infinitely recognisable vocally. But, you may not have known what he looks like, how he speaks or when / if he ever releases anything on his own. The guy is infuriatingly modest (read probably shy).
Well, he does. And today is one of those days.
Today, he’s bringing out ‘Dual’, his solo EP.
Releasing with Young Turks – the London based independent label that has been responsible for The XX and SBTRKT, among others – his single Without is pretty much as you would expect. In a good way.
Mellow, wistful, with perhaps a touch of melancholy or nostalgia, it’s quite delightful.
