Samiyam debuts on Stones Throw in March

Instrumental hip-hop producer Samiyam is set to release his new album Animals Have Feelings on Stones Throw.

The beatmaker (aka Sam Baker) is a perfect fit for the L.A. label run by Peanut Butter Wolf, having been extended Stones Throw family for a while now. He’s previously released on the similarly minded Brainfeeder after being picked up by Flying Lotus for Sam Baker’s Album and Rap Beats Vol. 1.

Samiyam’s records are predominantly instrumental, and he only works with a handful of rappers – this time he’s rounded up Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson, Jeremiah Jae and Oliver the 2nd. Sam has form with Earl in particular, having produced ’20 Wave Caps’ from his 2013 album Doris, as well as last year’s standalone ‘Quest/Power’.
