Since the year 2004, SAMIYAM has been the proud owner of two midi cables. They are currently in his closet under some other shit.

Originally from Ann Arbor and currently residing in LA, this lover of sprinkles on doughnuts, takes the legacy of all Detroit's talented musical sons and daughters and makes beats filled with snippets of soul, funk, Italian horror flick soundtracks, Nintendo bonus level music and '90s hip-hop.

Somehow, with this much content, the beats still manage to sound gloriously minimal and disjointed. Fans like Benji B, Andrew Meza (BTS Radio) and XLR8R have been eagerly snapping up his tracks, as Sam freeze frames Electro energy and spits it back out as twisted future Jazz. Dabrye is a fan, Daedelus describes him as "a thrilling sound to break the sameness," and Flying Lotus is his brother in arms (they collaborate on the project FLYamSAM).
