After a debut on Brainfeeder in 2011 and lending production to Captain Murphy, Earl Sweatshirt, and Danny Brown (diggin way back to “Radio Head”), Samiyam joins Leaving/Stones Throw for his follow-up, Wish You Were Here.
Though the track is titled “Snakes On The Moon”, Samiyam was recently quoted as saying he's not on some “futuristic spaceship beats”, which is apparent in his cut. With references to the moon and the borrowed album title, Samiyam is leaning more towards the paranoid psychedelia of Pink Floyd on “Snakes On The Moon”. The instrumental has warps that slither and a pacing that's behind the sloth and molasses in a foot race. The carnival intro is wiped clean for the cavernous isolation, as droplets are magnified and the track is instilled with a looming sense of maintaing caution.
Samiyam's Wish You Were Here is out October 8 on Leaving/Stones Throw. The album features guest appearances by Evidence and The Alchemist.
