Dummy Mix 339 // Samuel's vocal mix

Raised in Ireland between gypsy camps and children’s homes, with a ‘good chunk’ of homelessness thrown in the mix – music has always been therapy for inventive singer and songwriter Samuel. Spending his time in music programs offered by the homes, his talent was apparent, and eventually won him a series of scholarships and a place at esteemed South East London university, Goldsmith's. Overcoming many obstacles to achieve his hopes and dreams, Samuel made his long awaited debut on Technicolour in 2013. He then continued to wow listeners with his follow up single These Days on Big Dada last year, before returning to the label earlier this month with 'LUV CRY'. An attention grabbing four-tracker, it features Samuel's silky smooth vocals rolling over swathes of R&B tinged electronica, with production efforts from Kwes, Ozkharp, and Lockah.

To mark the release, Samuel drops into the Dummy mix series with a 'vocal mix' that glides from mood enhancing reggae, to swinging house edits of R&B demi-god Donell Jones, through to a heartfelt Nina Simone approved outro.
