Samantics is a one man band who makes and plays live, multi-instrumental, spoken word. He creates hard-hitting, musical poetry, with a sprinkle of hip-hop. Using a loopstation and an ever expanding collection of instruments, Samantics delivers a very refreshing and heartfelt sound. The energy, effort and concentration he puts in to his live shows creates a captivating performance and with his thoughtful, honest and engaging lyrics, Samantics frequently draws in large crowds. If you’re more into drinking tea than murking Gs then Samantics is one to watch!
Samantics stepped onto the scene at the start of 2015 after finally persuing a solo career with the assistance of a loop pedal. Since then he has taken huge strides. He is now filling festival tents (including Wondefileds and Watchet), supporting the likes of The Sugar Hill Gang, Grandmaster Flash and The Undercover Hippy and recording for the well established ‘Balcony TV’. He’s also had multiple songs broadcast on BBC Introducing in Devon with his most recent single dubbed ‘Upload of the week’.
Laid Blak was brought together after producer DJ Bunjy joined forces with MC Joe Peng to conquer the 90’s jungle and rave scenes.
The duo’s musical direction took a course that has led them to seek out some of Bristol’s finest : Lui the bass player, Stacy on drums, Scotty the guitarist, Sam on keys and Tita vocalist. What started as a studio project evolved into this acclaimed live act – Laid Blak.
Their first 12” record “Scream and Shout” went bouncing up the playlists on BBC 1 Xtra, Kiss FM and Choice FM.
Chasing Shadows remix of ‘Red’, has had over 2 million! YouTube views, proved to be an obvious favourite when performed live!
Laid Blak was signed to Brown Punk Records, a new record label set up by Tricky and Chris Blackwell (who founded Island Records and introduced the world to Bob Marley).
The band then released their album Red & Blak with one of Bristol’s hottest labels: Reel Me Records.
Already legends in their hometown, New York’s Village Voice, DJ and Touch magazine have zoned in on the band, giving them excellent reviews. Laid Blak have won an army of local and international support. They gained a coveted Rototom award for Best Northern European Reggae Band and have played alongside big guns such as Aswad, The Wailers, Nitin Sawhney, Toots and Maytals, Desmond Dekker, Lee Scratch Perry, Reef, John Legend, Luciano, Easy Allstars, McFly, Julian Marley and Ed Sheeran.

After 7 years of hard work from many many people, some still with us and some moved on, I truly believe we have all created a festival model without the need for greed, where the desire to provide empowerment to entertain or be entertained has overridden everything to become the “rich return” we all crave and desire in our leisure time. I’ve been going to festivals all my life and I’m telling you, you lot are proper doing it for me right now, every member of crew and customer is buying into this, you’ve made it real!! No Smoke or Mirrors Required!!!!!!!
