Sam Irl

Free Two Grow EP

Jazz & Milk

Released: 2nd February 2015 | 3 track deep house ep

Sam Irl returns to Jazz & Milk with his latest Free Two Grow EP, two years after his last solo release for the label (Slower Bavarian EP, 2012). He has continued to develop his sample- & analogue synthesizer-based music further, keeping things raw and warm at the same time.

The EP starts off with the title track Free Two Grow, an MPC live jam built around a hypnotic loop slowly developing into a heavy synth-driven Deep House tune. The B-side cut Ions builds on warm jazzy chords backed by tight rolling drums, creating a melancholic as well as a deep percussive vibe.

Representing his versatile musical background and his roots in Hip Hop culture, Einerfuerheiner combines heavy-hitting MPC-drums, raw sampling, dubby synth textures and a weighty bass foundation.

Sam Irl is a producer from Vienna worth keeping an eye on. He has released on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings (Kutmah presents Worldwide Family Vol. 2 with Ritornell), Pomelo Records (as Pulsinger & Irl together with Patrick Pulsinger), Frank Music, Bonzzaj Recordings (Untitled One with Dorian Concept) in Switzerland and others. Besides releasing his own music he has done remixes for Aloa Input (Morr Music), Inverse Cinematics (aka Motor City Drum Ensemble), JSBL (Affine Records), Swede:art, Trishes (FM4), G.rizo and Munich's dialect-Hip Hop-group Doppel D.

Originally hailing from a small village in rural Lower Bavaria, Sam Irl has been living and working as a producer and recording engineer in Vienna for quite some time now. He produces tracks of various styles, ranging from sample-heavy MPC Hip Hop beats, analogue tape-recorded synthesizer Funk to raw Broken Beat and Deep House tunes.
