Samo Sound Boy: Begging Please
Buy! - (Body High)
The long-awaited debut full-length album from Los Angeles DJ/producer Sam Griesemer (aka Samo Sound Boy, founder and label boss of Body High Records and one-half of DJ Dodger Stadium alongside Jerome LOL) is a captivating set of emotionally-charged tracks that cascade with energy and soul. Inspired by the dissolution of a long-term relationship and built around simple, powerful vocal samples that fade in-and-out of massive, swelling synths and hard-hitting drums, Begging Please contains moments that could work on the dancefloor, an environment that Samo and Body High have largely focused on during their existence, but ultimately this a smart, complex, non-club record and one of the more arresting electronic long-players of the year. 5/22/2015 - Alex
