Sam Blacky Debuts On Repopulate Mars Label With “Colombiana”
Native Californian and international sensation Sam Blacky makes her debut on Lee Foss’s Repopulate Mars with “Colombiana,” a Tech-House firestarter with a sultry edge. The new single is the next tribute to Blacky’s love of travel and appreciation of culture, incorporating elements of traditional Latin music with her signature Tech and Tribal style. Strong kick drums and organic instrumentals combine for a record that will have you booty shaking on the dancefloor and imagining yourself framed by the ocean and the setting sun in an exotic paradise. “Colombiana” is Blacky’s first release since her “Summer Solstice” EP from the last summer.
“‘Colombiana’ was inspired by my love for the Latin influence in music. It seems to be coming to the forefront much more recently, which makes me so happy. The sensual guitar set amongst Tech House tribal vibes is what makes it for me. Since I started performing and especially making music, Repopulate Mars has always been one of my biggest goals. I think the level of taste-making and innovation in the Tech House scene is unparalleled, and I couldn’t be happier to join the family.” — Sam Blacky
