SAM IRL - DONAU EP OUT NOW!
Sam Irl delivers a jazz-tinged House EP via Cologne’s Jazz & Milk, entitled ‘Donau’ and comprising three originals from the Vienna, Austria based producer and DJ.
The past decade has seen Bavaria born Vienna based artist Sam Irl deliver his signature soul infused twist on contemporary house via the likes of Jimpster’s Freerange, S3A’s Sampling As An Art, SlothBoogie, Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood and of course Jazz & Milk which has become a staple home for his productions since debuting on the label in 2012. Here Sam offers up the ‘Donau’ EP, the title of which references his growing up in rural Lower Bavaria as well living in Vienna for almost two decades, both of which are located on the Danube River.
Opening the EP is ‘Music About Talking’, a five-minute dynamic house workout employing intricately intertwined keys, sweeping guitar chops, vocal cuts and air synth chords running atop jazzy, organic drums and a gritty bass hook.
Title-cut ‘Donau’ follows and dives deeper into snaking bass licks, stuttering guitar plucks, ethereal piano lines and shuffled, low-slung drums. ‘Magic Hat’ then rounds out the release, deftly weaving together twinkling synth chimes, a playful, bouncy bass line and ethereal atmospherics while jazzy keys ebb and flow amongst a raw, crisp drum groove.
