REAL NAME: Sam Hiscox
LABELS: Good Karma Music
Sam Hiscox, better known as Imba has been emerging onto the drum & bass scene for the last couple of years now, and is one to keep both eyes on. Spending the last few years quietly honing his production style by experimenting with many genres, and drawing influence from a multitude of artists such as Technimatic to Koan Sound, his diversity of creative input is apparent in his productions.
His first notable release was on Perth (AU) based Good Karma Music. Shimmering, evolving soundscapes sets the tone for this deeply emotive 2 track release. Emotive melodies and rich textured atmospheres are a testament to his skill in the studio and ability to capture the ear and speak to the soul. However, his sonic pallet doesn’t stop there – he’s also got quite a serious neurofunk and tech addiction that flares up from time to time, and spends a lot of his days in the studio making deep, dark noises for his more ‘headsy’ productions.
When it comes to conducting tones for the dance floor, Imba always delivers the goods no matter what the situation. He’s just as much at home rolling out soul-laced Liquid for 90 minutes as he is tearing off the roof with high-octane bass heavy monsters. Every set comes complete with loads of surprises in the form of his ever-growing library of home-baked VIPs that never fails to thrill those in attendance.
