"Following 2016's sprawling, slamming full-length Animals Have Feelings, Los Angeles-based abstract hip-hop producer Samiyam (Sam Baker) threw a Pizza Party. Clocking in at about half the length of its predecessor, Pizza Party initially seems like a light snack, but it's a significant development in Baker's career because it wasn't composed using samples, unlike his prior recordings. It's a set of laid-back synth-funk with Baker's usual crushed, nonlinear beat patterns, which often seem to trip over themselves but make sense the closer you listen." - Allmusic

“Pizza Party is Samiyam’s sixth album proper, and brims with his characteristic sonic swagger. His label, Stones Throw, describe the album as “off-kilter mobster music”; an incredibly fitting description given the foreboding quality of so many of its synth melodies; the ominous, creeping bass sounds on ’Swamp People’ and title track ‘Pizza Party’, for example)…”

“...‘Pizza Party’ is an excellent addition to the Samiyam canon. His work has always built on the foundations laid by hip-hip production forefathers like J Dilla; pushing the genre forward into something altogether different. Dilla beats are timeless classics, while Samiyam uses that same vehicle to explore new themes in new ways. You might think a Margherita vs Hawaiian comparison could be appropriate here. It isn’t. You’re better than that. ‘Pizza Party’ is better than that.” - Clash Music
