One of our favorite acts of 2015 is back and is ready to keep his rank for 2016. Irish-born South-London mysterious vocalist Samuel is back with a bewitching reggae-from-space track “Killr”. And good news, this new single announces the release of the EP “LUV CRY” for June via Big Dada.
The 4-track EP is produced by Kwes, from Warp, who already signed the Frank Ocean on ecstasy 2015’s track “These Days”. It will also features additional production by Ozkharp (Hyperdub) and Lockah (Donky Pitch). We think this is a good news! The artist wrote in the press release that “LUV CRY” would be about “confessions/offerings to a loved one…stuff I can’t give/say/do day to day.”
The first single, “Killr”, follows what the artist has always offered us so far: a perfect mix of electronica and R&B. Here, we also hear some futuristic reggae vibes and once again, we are delighted. We really hope we will be able to see him soon live in Brussels!

Samuel‘s voice should be classified as a universal therapy. We hope that “LUV CRY” will give the artist what he really deserves!
As a bonus, let’s listen to “These Days” again
