Samantha James

deep house // downtempo

Tropically warm, upbeat and blissful; exactly what I was looking for to start 2008. Teaming up with Sebastian Arocha Morton, aka ROCAsound, and San Francisco based OM Records, Samantha James‘ debut is a soulful unison that her honeyed voice must have been made for. Embracing any surrounding with its aura; whether in a bedroom, out for a drive, or steaming up a club, Rise will sustain its essence hovering all around and inside you. A bossa nova flare from Aurgasm alum Celso Fonseca adds a wonderful touch.

OM grooves lift spirits to continue onward.

    It’s kinda sorta nice, but nothing really unique about it.

  6. snitcher :

    this is really good quality chill house for sure. definitely one of the best artists i’ve heard coming out from om. kinda reminds me of blue six and aquanote, but better. these two songs are not the best of the album imho, go d/l the full album, or listen at and you will discover how strong it is. angel love was one of the tracks i found myself returning to over and over in 2007. highly recommended.

    It’s quality for what it is. If you’re so indie-rocker it hurts, save us the time of reading your pontifications. great voice. great production. it may not be the sound du jour, but good music deserves being recognized and this is good music. I am definitely a fan.
