Sampha - Process

Our record of the week as of today is Process, the highly-anticipated ten-track debut album from Sampha.

First thing here, the production is amazing. He worked with Rodaidh McDonald on it, but it's clear he's just put his all into it. Across it's 40 minutes it covers a lot of ideas and textures, but it's super coherent. Still just twenty seven years old, he has lent his vocal, production and songwriting talents to a range of stand out releases, from UK contemporaries such as FKA twigs, Jessie Ware and SBTRKT to world-renowned superstars like Drake, Kanye West and, most recently this year, on Frank Ocean’s Endless and Solange’s A Seat At The Table albums. Vocally he's one of the most important guys of the last five years and he's really saved his A-game for his own album. Very good indeed.
