“The call of dance from Sam Blacky is out and echoing all around. Discover a powerful bassline, leading hihats and clear 3D effects in a short House/Techno mix, which can bring the dancefloor to your place. Good job!”
After releasing her debut single "Too Late" just last month, the multitalented LA-based DJ/producer Sam Blacky returns with her follow-up release "Body," a smoldering vocal house track that was inspired by Sam's world travels. Opening with beats that call to mind a frenzied tribal drum circle, Blacky incorporates ethereal vocals for a touch of complexity and contrast. When the deep, driving bassline kicks in, you'll be taken to a beachside set in Mexico as the sun is going down and the dancefloor is heating up. "Body" perfectly reflects Sam's "A New World" video series, which includes her most recent upload from Sian Ka'an, a picturesque secluded peninsula in Mexico.
"'Body' was 100% inspired by my love of travel & tropical, foreign destinations. Obviously, before COVID, what seems like so long ago, I would be in a different country almost every weekend and get exposed to all sorts of new styles of music. I took it all in like a sponge, I was obsessed with every new song I heard & I couldn't believe how different all the sounds were. I collected bits and pieces from all over the world to culminate my own sound & take different aspects from every place I had been and combine them all together. The song went through tons of rounds of changes and edits because every time I would come home from another trip, I would have something more to add. I hope it comes across in the work, because it truly was inspired by the world." - Sam Blacky
