SAMIYAM (unreleased beats for sale)

Ann Arbor's latest prodigal son and lover of sprinkles on doughnuts, takes the legacy of all Detroit's talented musical sons and daughters and makes Hip Hop beats filled with snippets of Soul, Funk, 70's Italian horror flick soundtracks, Nintendo bonus level music, and 90's Hip Hop. Somehow, with this much content, the beats still manAge: to sound gloriously minimal and disjointed. Fans like Benji B, Andrew Meza and XLR8R have been eAge:rly snapping up his tracks, as Sam freeze frames Electro energy and spits it back out as twisted future Jazz. Dabrye is a fan, Daedalus describes him as "a thrilling sound to break the sameness," and Flying Lotus is his brother in arms (they collaborate on the project FLYamSAM).


Ann Arbor, MI

How long have you been making music & why did you start?
I've been making music for about 5 years. I started because I just decided to do it one day. I used to listen to music and wondered how people made beats, so I decided to find out.

Describe your style:
Hip hop. It's kind of all over the place. I sample stuff and make my own synth sounds. It's hard to sum it up.

Favourite piece of equipment?
My favorite piece of equipment is currently the sp303. I do everything on it. It's a great machine.

Musical hero?
J Dilla is my Musical hero?. I've just never heard anything by him that I didn't like.

2007 personal highlight?
In February I went to Amsterdam. It was my first time in Europe and it was beautiful. I definitely want to go back there and see more of Europe also.

What do you want to achieve in 2008?
I want to get more of my music out in 2008. I plan on doing some solo stuff and working with a few people.

Favourite RBMA experience?
I don't know if I can narrow it down to one favorite experience. The whole thing was so crazy. It was just great to be surrounded by so many creative people for two weeks.

Key personal productions?
Right now my only releases are FLYamSAM's "Green Tea Power" on Rush Hour's Beat Dimensions comp and "Donut with Sprinkles" on Fat City:'s Producer1 comp.

What do you want the world to know about you?
You'll never get bad syrup on your pancakes in muthufuckin Toronoto.

Essential fashion tip?
Make sure you flip up the collar on your pink polo shirt.

ST MIC / Lifes Work (Classic hiphop)

(Click Above Album Cover to be Re-directed to I tunes)

"Life's Work" was 3 years in the making before ST/MIC decided it should just be a snapshot of what was really going on in his life at the time. It's a combination of all the moods and feelings associated with that time period. There are a lot of retrospective moments as well. Some mellow vibes and also some darker, more powerful and driven tracks. Although ST/MIC did a good deal of the production on the record, it would have never manifested into what it's become without all of the great artists involved. "Life's Work" features production by The Unknown, DJ Ragz and Mudd. Featured guests include The Unknown, Jazz Addixx (DJ Ragz and Mudd), Dutchmassive, TAMU, Distruck, Primo The Cinematic and Flaco.

Born in New York in the 1970's, ST/MiC grew up in a small suburb about 30 miles from Washington DC. At the tender age of 6 he made his first mix tape, which consisted of beating random objects around the room whilst his brother blew obscene notes on a saxophone. At 9 he taught himself to play the bass, followed by guitar at 11 and drums at 14.

Playing in a few moderately successful bands through high school his attention soon shifted to turntables, frequently sitting in on studio sessions with acclaimed house/techno producer Holmes Ives. It was here ST/MiC learned the essence of sampling, sequencing and production. His mid to late 90's were spent traveling up and down the east coast of the US, under the name St. Michael, playing a mixture of turntablism style hip hop and jungle/drum and bass, gaining a solid following in cities, such as Baltimore, York Pa., Washington DC and Fredericksburg Va.

Over the years, realizing how much studio time costs, he taught himself the fundamentals of engineering, mixing and mastering audio. Now with 12+ years of experience in the studio he focuses on helping other artists make quality music

Words From the HERO: I met Mike thru my Good Friends, Label mates and ultimately Brothers the JAZZ ADDIXX (Dj RAGS and MUDD) and found out we had alot in common, St Mic is a Really Humble peaceful cat whose feet are planted in the west and his heart n soul are on a higher level with a more eastern philosophy. Mike is more than a great Recording artist, or Producer/ engineer. Dude is a great father and great husband. I know thats a little off topic. but strait up I feel more than compelled to congradulate such positive energy. You will definatly fall in love after you get a dose of his Life's WORK...my fav album cut is FLY! dont forget that you will Find The Hobbyshophero DUTCHMASSIVE! on this album not 1nce, but TWICE! =)
but before I bounce on out, I want to thank DJ FISHER for releasing all this good music!
