After a short hibernation LA Priest, aka Sam Dust, aka Sam Eastgate graces us with his second album GENE. Named after an analog drum machine that Sam dreamed up and built himself, GENE is the follow-up to the Truffle Pigs’ acclaimed debut album Inji in 2015 and the collaboration with Connan Mockasin, Soft Hair, in 2016, and of course this drum machine, which Sam has been devising and inventing for over two years, is the linchpin of the album. It’s the most complete realization of his vision yet. These songs are searching for meaning, exploring the limits of their creator’s abilities.
With a juicy groove the record starts into life, strutting and sparkling, inserting melancholic interludes and taking a sharp turn to something dark and mystical in the last third.
On 28.10.2020 LA Priest will play a show in Germany in Berlin’s Urban Spree.
