Last year Obey City released his debut for LuckyMe Records on vinyl and digital: ‘Champagne Sounds’. A primer for the palette Sam Obey draws upon: Club, House, AOR, Gospel, R&B and Techno. With euphoric moments and drum freak outs it was no surprise ‘Champagne Sounds’ clocked support from Rustie, Brodinski & Jackson and His Computer Band.
In 2014 we are proud to present ‘Merlot’ – an altogether richer record. Where so many producers elude that their vocal edits are the first step in a career as a song-writer proper; with Merlot Sounds Sam Obey has cut out years of studio time and mic’d up a generation of vocalists he exists in the orbit of: Anthony Flammia, 1-OAK, Oliver DaySoul, Kelela & The Flatbush Zombies.
As we move to finish mixdowns, master and release Merlot Sound – we’re proud to present this ‘Merlot VIP’ of last year’s ‘Fallin’. Now recorded with vintage equipment and outboard sat right beside modern digital drums it takes just those elements you want from it’s influences without loosing its contemporary purpose.
Merlot Sound coming soon.
