As a member of Parisian band Club Cheval, a solo DJ and as one part of the notorious Bromance Records unit, Sam Tiba escapes on his own with the release of his ‘Samuel’ EP this September. With musical influences coming from the American ghetto underground, from Miami to Baltimore, Sam continues to push forward as an intriguing musician with his sensual and dreamlike productions.
Born in Roubaix in 1985, Sam began by studying theory at the local Academy of Music and learnt how to play the trombone, not your average instrument. In 2009, he met with his Club Cheval stooges from Lille (Panteros666, Myd and Canblaster) and they all agreed to start working on a sound of their own, somewhere between up-tempo rhythms with rave touches and R&B. Shortly after, Club Cheval were criss-crossing the planet as DJs and each member also working on solo projects. Their first album together should see the light of day in 2015.
For Sam, the solo adventure started in 2011 on Marble (the record label of his friends Para One and Surkin & Bobmo) when he released his first EP, “Black Eyed Weed”, followed in 2013 by “The Saddest Show In Town”, on Pelican Fly, Cashmere Cat’s parent company. This September 15th Sam’s new EP ‘Samuel’ will be released through Brodinski’s label, Bromance Records. Following the release of ‘Samuel’, Sam plans to regroup his music and creative endeavours into an album to be released in the near future.
Sam will play a headline London show later this year scattered with keyboards inspired by Bach, chopped rhythms and mellow vocoder. With one foot on the dance floor and his head in the clouds, Sam takes you up there playfully with his pop and willing soul music.
