For our sixty-eighth Truancy Volume we are proud and blessed to bring to you the musical chameleon that is Samoyed. The Dundee based producer, otherwise known as Andrew Cook, will awaken your senses with harmonious sounds that flow through you with all the vigour of an electrical current. “I think I value emotional connection in music above anything else” is a statement that rings true not only of Samoyed’s selection, but of his own productions; his recent “Sloe Eyes” EP for Vase (a stream of which you can find just below) was a startlingly sentimental affair despite containing two choice dancefloor cuts. After bringing out his “Spit” EP on Astro:Dynamics in 2011, Lukid signing “Her Honey Dripping Behind” to his Glum label, and now rubbing shoulders with Jacques Greene on Vase we predict 2013 is going to be a big one for him. The mix really highlights Samoyed’s prowess as a curator, effortlessly navigating through new-wave punk, cloud rap and 4/4 house. Perfect for easy listening in almost any mood you find yourself in; but we’ll stop there before we give too much away.
