Sam Binga readies his debut LP ‘Wasted Days’ through Critical Music



    Since his first forays into the limelight Sam Binga’s name has become synonymous with some of the most forward-thinking, genre-defying electronic music to have emerged from the UK in recent years. With a string of successful releases on Critical and Exit garnering support from the likes of Pitchfork, FACT, Resident Advisor and XLR8R with radio endorsements from BBC Radio 1’s Mistajam, Friction, Toddla T, B Traits, Rinse FM and more, Critical Music now present his debut long player ‘Wasted Days’. An album of pure street-felt expressionism drawing influence from global multi cultures, his cascading eclecticism runs throughout making for a raw, uncompromising journey true to the Sam Binga sound.


    A note from Sam Binga:

    “This album is my small contribution to the ongoing – and endlessly inspiring – conversation between Jamaican sound system culture, US hip hop, and UK club music. There’s elements of grime, jungle, dancehall, footwork, crunk and more, but it’s all filtered through my experiences growing up through the aftermath of the original rave explosion, post ‘Summer Of Love’. In some ways, it’s also a love letter to everything my life in dance music has opened up to me – I grew up in a small, backwater monocultural town, yet from following a few discreet aspects of the things that make up this music, I’ve been able to work with people from all walks of life, from all over the world. And I’ve equally been able to take influences from all over the world, and gradually understand how to fit them into a coherent framework – my own coherent framework.”
