Vancouver newcomer Sam Darkoh dropped off his album debut, Ire Desire, released this past Friday, Dec. 14 via SV Nation.
Ire Desire takes heavy influences from several artists and genres, which makes for an interesting listening experience. The project is built on throwback-esque synths with heavy hitting 808s. SV Rev, the album’s Executive Procucer, wanted to ensure that production was “relatable and digestible, but yet something new and interesting.”
The album – featuring the lead off single “Blue” – is cohesive 10-tracks that really brings the listener from point A to point B; a real coming of age story.
“If you had to narrow it down, Sam Darkoh is a blend of Vince Staples, Vic Mensa and a splash of Q-Tip. There are some Vince Staples in the production, some Vic Mensa in the vocals and some Q-Tip in the identity of Blue.”
Ire Desire is available on various digital streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify. Stream it below and stay tuned for more from Sam Darkoh.
