After being introduced during a 2008 recording session in Nashville, Sam and Tre, along with DJ Kidsmeal, decided to collaborate and see what happened. Eventually, their unique brand of Electro Glitch Hip Hop was born. With roots in Hip Hop and Rock, their unique group represents all of their respective upbringings in London, Atlanta and Trenton, Tennessee, while still keeping an international sensibility.
Sam has produced artists such as Josh Doyle, Circle of Sound, Intramural, and Damien Horne, just to name a few. Sam and Tre have recently performed major music events such as Nashville’s 8 Off 8th/BMI promotional series at Mercy Lounge, RedGorilla Music Fest, and SXSW (South By Southwest) festival.
Sam and Tre’s forthcoming EP effort will be their first collaborative recording. While showcasing their own unique sound, they hope to channel influences such as Producer/ Composer Alan Shacklock (Sam’s father), Jimi Hendrix, Bach, Kanye West, Tupac Shakur and Michael Jackson.
In the upcoming months, you can catch Sam and Tre, along with DJ Kidsmeal, hosting all-night parties at schools, houses, and even makeshift music venues from Nashville to Miami to London, where Sam and Kidsmeal are no stranger to the diverse music scene.
Yung & Ugly celebrated it’s third year of throwing their monthly DJ showcase, Mashville, by inviting everybody around to The Mercy Lounge for a night on the town.
The night started off with the early crowd getting their hands on DJ Wick-it’s specially-made anniversary album and catching the set of Mashville resident and co-founder, DJ Orig. Visual’s were being presented throughout the show thanks to Bateman Design. There was also a performance from a group new to Mashville. Though their DJ, who goes by Suspicion, has previously wrecked shop on our stage, we were not as acquainted to his new project. Remsteele hit the stage hard, and grabbed the crowd up with their swaggered raps and energized presence.
