One of the dopest things about the internet is the ability to discover music from all over with ease. Sampha has been popular in the UK for about four years now. He just bubbled into the US scene really this past year when Drake sampled his vocally heart melting “Too Much,” and with contributions to Solange’s St. Heron mixtape.
I discovered his music while navigating through some dubstep/garage stuff I found on a blog back in 2010. There was a SBTRKT track “Break off” that featured these beautiful vocals and I NEEDED to hear more of whoever was singing on the track. I consumed everything I could find from the kid for years and this year he has blessed us, the #feelgoodmusic community, with multiple gems. Today he brought it back to the beginning by releasing this new track with SBTRKT. ”Temporary View” features beautiful synths and Sampha’s patented falsetto dissolving into the groove. Give it a listen and #feelgood.
