Early years

Sampha's introduction to music came from learning to play on the piano at his parents' home in Morden and absorbing records given to him by his older siblings. Later, he discovered music production as a young teen, after his older brother, Sanie, built himself a makeshift home studio. Subsequently in 2007, through Myspace.com, Sampha met London producer, Kwes, whose music Sampha said changed his life. Kwes guided and introduced Sampha to musicians, Mica "Micachu" Levi, Ghostpoet, DELS and his now label-home, Young Turks, in 2009. Through Young Turks, Sampha remixed 'Basic Space' by The xx and met his earliest collaborators, SBTRKT, Jessie Ware, Bullion and Lil Silva.[7][8][9]
