Hailing from the City Of Angels, Samo Sound Boy is here to remind you of the power of simplicity. OK, so the beats are rather complex and textured synth-heavy house music, but its the power of the repetitive vocal hooks that grab my attention.
The music grabs me in the same way that Moby’s did, there’s real emotive tension in each song on his debut album « Begging Please » which you can stream here. The whole album is about the disillusion of a relationship “Begging Please is a story about the last couple years of my life, told best way I know how,” – he told Fact Mag. “The idea that dance music could be considered one noted or lacking in depth has never made sense to me. I think the very simple way it builds up and down is so fundamentally reflective of living in the world,” he continues. “What’s dark and brooding can give way to the most ecstatic moments, all because one small thing is added or subtracted.”
Please do your ears a favour and get emotional with my two stand out tracks, title track « Begging Please » and « You Come For Me » below.
