Irish-born South-London vocalist Samuel returns to Big Dada with the new EP Luv Cry - four tracks of RnB tinged electronica, produced by Kwes (Warp) and with additional production by Ozkharp (Hyperdub) and Lockah (Donky Pitch).
Coming from a tough upbringing in Ireland, raised in gypsy camps and children’s homes, and living homeless for periods, he found relief in the music programs on offer at the homes, finally earning a scholarship at Goldsmiths University in London. After moving to London he went on to collaborate extensively with Ozkharp on his 2014 EP Falling Star, receiving support from the likes of Pitchfork, Dazed, Dummy, Pigeons & Planes & DJ Mag. His recent single These Days (produced by Kwes) premiered on The Fader and has had over 300k streams to date.
Samuel stated his intentions for this EP as “confessions/offerings to a loved one…stuff I can’t give/say/do day to day”
