Videos for a Lazy Sunday: Samo Sound Boy’s ‘What Can I Do?’

Samo Sound Boy has unveiled the third video from the three-part series from his debut album Begging Please, out on April 28 on Body High.

The emotional, Dan Pappas-directed clip stars Nathalie Love.

“I made these three videos in LA with my friends Dan Pappas and Nathalie Love. (Dan directed them and Nathalie is the star. They are also a couple in real life). The idea was to do a very simple and intimate series that would reflect the story of my album. Each video was entirely unscripted and filmed on Dan’s phone as a single continuous take. We filmed on a phone instead of a pro camera mostly because no one is going to bust you for not a having a permit that way, but also because it allowed for the background and locations to really come to life. I like these videos because everything going on in them is real. There was no set or crew or sound guy standing off camera. Just a real couple out in real places in the city,” Samo Sound Boy said in a statement.


Videos for a Lazy Saturday: Samo Sound Boy’s ‘Baby Don’t Stop’

The video for Samo Sound Boy‘s ‘Baby Don’t Stop’ is the first in a trilogy directed by Daniel Pappas.

The track is taken from his forthcoming album Begging Please, out on April 28 on Body High. The album follows a relationship as it breaks down and falls apart. Samo has cited Marvin Gaye’s Here My Dear as a key influence. The album uses lush synths, soulful samples and jagged percussion.

“The idea that dance music could be considered one noted or lacking in depth has never made sense to me. I think the very simple way it builds up and down is so fundamentally reflective of living in the world,” Samo said in a statement. “What’s dark and brooding can give way to the most ecstatic moments, all because one small thing is added or subtracted. Begging Please is a story about the last couple years of my life, told best way I know how.”

Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy have announced that they will release their debut album under their DJ Dodger Stadium name, Friend of Mine, on July 8 on their label Body High.

To celebrate, they’ve unveiled the video for ‘Love Songs’;

The 10 track album uses hypnotic techno as the soundtrack to tales of lost souls searching for redemption and peace. It’s the duo’s most ambitious release to date and the first full-length release for their album.

The pair formed Body High on 2011 to release DJ Dodger Stadium’s first EP Stadium Status and since then, they have released music from a number of LA artists and developed a reputation as being one of the tastemakers on the LA dance music scene.
