Ann Arbor, Michiganâ€™s Sam Baker, aka Samiyam, is an underground producer who makes instrumental hip-hop beats. Stylistically cut from the same cloth as J Dilla but with a tendency to incorporate synthesizers as well as samples, his debut Rap Beats, Vol. 1 was self-released in 2008 as a limited CD-R, and had unique artwork for each copy, collaged together from magazine cutouts. Samiyam collaborated with Flying Lotus for the project FLYamSAM on 2009â€™s Bootleg Beats, before releasing Sam Baker's Album on Brainfeeder in 2011. ~ Jason LymangroverPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
