A TAV Curator's Pick.

Since the release of his debut ‘Sundanza’ EP in 2010 and 2013’s ‘Dual’ EP, Sampha has quietly but assuredly become one of the UK’s most enigmatic and respected artists. Still just twenty seven years old, he has lent his vocal, production and songwriting talents to a range of stand out releases, from UK contemporaries such as FKA twigs, Jessie Ware and SBTRKT to world-renowned superstars like Drake, Kanye West and, most recently this year, on Frank Ocean’s Endless and Solange’s A Seat At The Table albums. Now it’s time for Sampha to tell his own story and Process, produced by Sampha himself and Rodaidh McDonald, is set to be his defining musical statement. – Press Release

“After singing with Solange, Drake, Kanye, and Frank, Sampha releases his debut LP. It’s a remarkable, meditative work, as he processes grief and navigates self-discovery.” – Pitchfork

“…what makes Process exceptional is its delicate focus on relationships corroded and fissured by time and unintentional neglect. Even blood becomes unrecognizable, as life forks where it will. You want to believe those bonds are mended by as something as simple as a phone call, but those cracks widen just as easily, a realization that makes the closing two songs a gut punch. The penultimate “Incomplete Kisses,” the project’s most straightforward anthem, proclaims “‘if you deny others inside it gets to harder to belong,” as if you could simply hold on to significant others by reaching out when it was convenient. “What Would I Be?” is the bleary eyed rejoinder: “I should visit my brother / But I haven’t been there in months.” He sings “you can always come home” as if he’s referring to an idyll instead of a physical, reachable place. There are no answers to this longing—only catharsis.” – SPIN
