Label: Young Turks
Based in London, Sampha brings a familiar feel from the electronic dance and soul genre. The album features a very diverse group of songs. Plastic 100° and Blood On Me have more of a pop feel to their melodies, kind of reminiscient of Mobley and The Weeknd (never mind the fact that this guy totally has the same hair style going on as The Weeknd…very questionable high top dreadlock combination that makes me feel kind of uncomfortable BUT TO EACH THEIR OWN). Once you get down to the second half of the album, you start to get more of a feel of who the artist is. He creates soft, beautiful electronic landscapes, layered with very mellow synths and melodic vocals.
Recommended: 2, 3, 6, 9
