Sampology Guest Mix for Purple Sneakers on FBi Click
Brisbane-based audiovisualist extraordinaire & producer SAMPOLOGY has been kickin’ around the traps for a little while now. After a few years of playing packed out shows, releasing head splittingly huge tracks & remixes, and honing his flavourful turntablist-audiovisual show, we thought it high time that we get our good bud in for a guest mix. And guest mix he did.
With a bold style deeply rooted in turntablism, SAMPOLOGY – better known to his mum as Sam Poggioli – is synonymous with the act of pushing the envelope when it comes to his astoundingly forward-thinking, moving, and sometimes hilarious AV shows. Melting high velocity, bass-filled jaunts into oozing special effects and hypercolour video edits all at the simple swipe of a turntable is how this funky operator, well… operates. It truly is a sight to behold, a sight that many festival-goers around the globe have been enchanted by.
But SAMPOLOGY isn’t simply just a killer live show – he’s also an A-grade producer of futuristic beats that lend themselves stylistically to sounds of hip-hop, R&B, leftfield and more – a truly recognisable sound that’ll have you either tearing up the D-floor or banging your head recklessly.
SAMPOLOGY’s affinity for crate-digging and exotic flavours also pierces through into his beat-craft. Take for example, his latest single ‘Shine A Light’ featuring Aussie vocalist (and hearthrob) DANIEL MERRIWEATHER. Simmering synths and warm basslines are beds for Brazilian-laced piano riffs and vocal cuts, whilst rolling samba rhythms push the track ever upwards and forwards. The single is a breath of fresh air amongst a bursting global scene that can sometimes fall victim to being congested with the ‘usual’ sound.
This high regard for exotic sound is eloquently exercised in SMAPOLOGY’s 30 minute guest mix for the latest episode of the PURPLE SNEAKERS show on FBi CLICK. Expect an unrelenting jamboree of bass music from around the globe, including our very own backyard.
