Spotlight: Samuraidel

Samuraidel is a 20 years old music producer based in Seattle, whose tag line is ‘I chop up records, instead of my enemies’. Samuraidel’s style is heavily influenced by Wutang Clan, J Dilla, Madlib, MF Doom, and Pete Rock. However, more recently he has been expanding into house and electronica, where his influences stem from ESTA, Jungle, The Tropics, Disclosure, SBTRKT, Saje, and many others.
