is proud to present….Samiyam
Yes only a month or so after the release of his sophomore album “Sam Baker’s Album", we’ve got him here direct from LA…
For the uninformed, Samiyam is an instrumental hip hop producer that has made huge waves worldwide with his unique sound. He has been pivotal in popularizing the particular soundscape also famously dominated by the likes of Clams Casino, Gas Lamp Killer, Nosaj Thing and Flying Lotus (who Sam also produces with, as FLYamSAM).
His last visit here saw him play a full capacity show at Cassette, wowing everyone in attendance. His energetic set consisted of old school hip hop, heavier dubby beats, glitchy synth heavy rhythms and funk/soul/RnB elements. He also brought with him a whole swag of unreleased collabs/remixes/mash ups featuring the likes of Fly Lo, DJ Premier, Big Noyd, Blu, Jay-Z, Alchemist, Radiohead, Exile, Lil Wayne, Shlohmo and more.

This is one of your last chances to embrace the quality hip hop/atmosphere Zen provides since it’s closing- SO BE THERE. Also as it’s midweek, Samiyam will be on ~12:30, so there’s no excuse for 9-5er’s to miss this. For those wanting to make a night of it (as you should be!) there’s an after party at Third & Social with the amazing LOWQUID headlining.
