Sam Blacky returns with her fresh tech-house offering, "Salvador," which rounds out her newest "Bogota" EP with its predecessors, July's "Munca" and namesake "Bogota" from April.
Leading with captivating melodies and resonant, progressive basslines, Sam crafts her sound using nuanced percussive layers and a subtle tribal vocal touch that's sure to resonate in live performances. Blacky adeptly utilises her music to channel the diverse places that spark her creativity. "Salvador" echoes her affinity for Afrobeats, tribal beats and Latin influences, presenting a track reminiscent of tropical parties set against the backdrop of serene beaches.
Speaking about her latest single, Sam Blacky said: “Travel has been my biggest inspiration since I started my journey in the dance music scene. Immersing myself in different cultures and being around people from all around the world has given me the tools to go into the studio and make music that resonates with my soul. 'Salvador' and all the tracks on the 'Bogota' EP capture all the feels from my travels these past 12 months - and shines a light on rhythms and sounds that have stayed with me and made me who I am today. Enjoy!”
