Sampology is a Producer, DJ, radio host for Worldwide FM and vinyl enthusiast since his teens, based in Meanjin/Brisbane, Australia.
By his mid-teens he had discovered vinyl and a love for sample heavy music – early Native Tongues, The Avalanches, disco and soul. Sampling dance music made a huge impression on Sampology – indeed, his performer name is a nod to this early influence of sampling.
Sampology’s start in Brisbane venues began at 17, evolving to interstate & eventually overseas travel to DJ & perform in Europe & UK, America & Asia. This has been a valued part of his growth, connecting him to different communities abroad from Australia.
Over the past six years, he has organically progressed to producer – of his own stunning EP releases Natural Selections (2016) and Mt Glorious (2018) as well as producing for other artists. (He produced Tiana Khasi’s Meghalaya EP and First Beige’s Mirrors EP)
Later in 2021, Sampology will release the Regrowth LP – an album that his last two EPs have built towards. Despite his love for sampling – with the exception of the Mariana Ingold sample on the opening song on Regrowth (Peace Lily) – all of the samples you hear on the album are recorded from scratch either in his home studio or on his travels over the past four years.
The majority of Regrowth was written and recorded during the Australian bushfires in the summer of 2019, and the album’s title came from reflecting on the environment during this time. On his forthcoming album, Sampology said:
“I hope this album gives something very pleasurable for people to immerse themselves in for 40 minutes and take in the ‘Regrowth’ spirit on whatever personal level resonates with them – be that emotional or environmental, globally or locally. Although the title was inspired by my reflection on the 2019 bushfires, fast forward to 2021 and Regrowth also relates to whatever this post Covid world will be.”
