Toronto based dj/producer Beat Sampras has been releasing his 90s influenced trap-wave beats on Soundcloud for not all that long actually. Determined to steer away from the unknown basement producer plague, Sampras started sharing his music online to an audience made up of probably just his friends and family.
Shaped by the sounds of 90s r&b, 00s Neptunes, SebastiAn, Timbaland, 9th wonder, Kanye, etc., Sampras makes things that sound good to him. people with similar tastes are finding their way to his wave, and they seem to be sticking around.
Beat Sampras’ first solo release, a remix of bandz, was followed by a down tempo remix of Disclosure’s latch the following week. positive feedback resulted in a stream of weekly uploads, culminating in The Remixes, a 12-track ep available on Bandcamp and premiered on itzsoweezee.
