Stream & Download Sampha’s Amazing Must Hear Debut Album ‘Process’ : Electronic R&B

Sampha Process Artwork

Over the years, Sampha has made a name for himself through his collaborations with other talented artists. He’s previously worked with Frank Ocean, Kanye West, Drake, SBTRKT, Solange and many others. Sampha's voice is what sets him apart, making him an incredible artist that created this demand from high-profile artists to get him on their songs. Now he’s finally delivered his full-length debut album Process delivered via Young Turks.

While he's done solo work before with EPs, this serves as his first full-length release. The 10-track project from the UK singer, writer and producer proves himself as a solo artist. His dreamy vocals shine atop the versatile production. Some tracks are simply him singing with a piano while others bring electronic productions including chill trap influences as the instrumentals are relaxingly melodic throughout. His soulful, unique vocals steals the show throughout the project displaying an incredible amount of emotion.

Process was co-produced alongside Rodaidh McDonald, who works with XL Recordings and was the co-producer with Jaime xx on the new The xx album. The 27-year-old Sampha delivered a cohesive album filled with powerful emotion as his songs touch on honest self reflection while displaying his warming vocals. We’re loving this album already and excited to see where Sampha’s career goes from here. Enjoy!

Kanye West Ft. Sampha - Saint Pablo : Must Hear Collaboration

What more can be said about Kanye West in 2016 that hasn't already been published by every mainstream press outlet and hype music blog under the sun?

The dust has yet to settle from his widely publicized, WIP project The Life Of Pablo, and we now hear a brand new single from what could be off his second studio album due this summer. 

"Saint Pablo" sounds like the classic Kanye; a chill, melodic beat gives the acclaimed rapper a proper foundation to spit some rather raw verses over. In true Ye fashion, he delivers some poignant remarks and metaphoric rhymes along the way while tapping British singer Sampha for the main hook. 

Little is known about this track except it's one of those fire alarm releases from Kanye. We hope this is officially released in some capacity sooner rather than later, but until more is known... Enjoy!
