Sam Irl is a talented producer from Vienna to keep an eye on. After a few releases on various labels, amongst others a 7" collaboration with Dorian Concept and a featuring on "Kutmah presents Worldwide Family Vol. 2" (Brownswood Rec.) with Ritornell, he is releasing his new EP on Jazz & Milk.
The "Slower Bavarian EP" begins with "Safety Hertz", a moody deep house tune with live rhodes and analogue synthesizer chord movements building up a melancholic yet forward-driven vibe. The bass-heavy broken-latin "Batuque" started out as a sponanteous summer jam with Dusty on a visit to Vienna which has already been played out and supported by DJ´s like Mr. Scruff. The B-side begins with "Oh Mother", a raw percussive afrobeat workout with an ethio-sytle twist, recorded together with Viennese underground group "Smizuler & The Helmets". Additional Trumpets were played by LA´s Todd Simon. The EP concludes with an excellent remix by Sam Irl homie Cid Rim remixing "Safety Hertz", turning it into a futuristic and dreamy bass workout.
Sam Irl, a young producer originally hailing from a small village in rural Lower Bavaria, has been living and working in Vienna for quite some time now. Besides studying recording engineering at Vienna´s University of Music and Performing Arts he produces tracks of various styles, ranging from sample-heavy MPC Hip Hop beats, analogue tape-recorded synthesizer Funk to raw Broken Beat and Deep House tunes. He has released on Stuttgart´s Pulver Records, Bonzzaj Recordings ("Untitled One" with Dorian Concept) in Switzerland and Fresh Minute Music London. Besides releasing his own music he has done remixes for JSBL, Swede:art, Trishes (FM4), Inverse Cinematics (aka Motor City Drum Ensemble) and Munich´s dialect-Hip Hop-group Doppel D.
Look out for Sam Irl´s live performances jamming on two MPC´s, drum computers and analogue synthesizers.
