The Stones Throw label is the perfect fit for Samiyam’s fourth album of soulful, loop heavy hip-hop. Animals Have Feelings is sumptuous and woozy, post-Dilla beat music with a host of incredible vocalists involved as well. Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson, Jeremiah Jae and Oliver the 2nd all jump on the mic to lend a hand.
Samiyam’s second LP on Stones Throw is a delightful tape. Entirely sample-free, the beats here sit somewhere between Fly Lo, Karriem Riggins and Knxwledge, with the kindly spectre of Dilla blessing everything with some low-end theory. Be he dabbling in chiptune (‘Sour Candy’), neo-soul (‘Saturday Morning’) or electro-funk (‘Rough’), Samiyam’s production remains charming and warm throughout.
