SUMMER SESSION 1 w/ SAMENAME + DJ CROWW



Fresh off the back of an amazing release for Pelican Fly, it's been a mighty year for Samename since he first played for us last Winter. Rocking shows from Brussels to Birmingham we're thrilled to have him back to showcase his uniquely melodious sound and kick off our summer series at Soup in style...

We're also proud to welcome the one-called DJ Croww, a studious and stylish selector with his mixtape game in check. A soundboy well-seasoned in everything from street soul (check this ill 80s mix from Croww), RnB and dirty south to up-to-the time UK pressure, when Croww selects it's time to report to the dancefloor. 

White tees recommended for this one!

SAMENAME DROPS HIS DEBUT EP ON PELICAN FLY



Extended Swing Ting family member Samename drops his highly anticipated and amazing debut ep on Pelican Fly Records today.

Crammed full of playful melodies, meditational ambience, Japanese instrumentation and rudeboy menace, it's harmonious, uplifting and powerful nodding to the East, yet remaining uniquely UK in its execution.


Opener 'Sakura' is a monumental number; cinematic strings and soothing flutes combine to devastating effect and rolling at 130 bpm it's a DJ's weapon, currently a big favourite of Dr Tropical aka Murlo. 

Next up 'Nuriko' is all out swaggerific, stripped, deadly grimy mayhem straight for the floor. 

'Shingami' ups the pace to 155bpm for a bold, percussive stomper signalling towards footwork and even junglist/ardcore styles in the second half, ravers beware! 

Closer 'Gishiki' rounds things off in style beginning with unsettling pulses before making way for a quivering, snaking beeline, glass smashes and Jersey kick patterns to awesome effect. 

Buy it here.
