Grammy-nominated producer Sam Spiegel (N.A.S.A.) is performing a live DJ set TODAY at 7pm Eastern/4pm Pacific via the SPIN Twitch Channel. Check out the set live at http://www.twitch.tv/spinmag/ and https://www.twitch.tv/hiiamsam_i.
The DJ set comes in anticipation of Spiegel’s upcoming album, Random Shit From The Internet Era, which is out this Friday on Spectrophonic Sound. The record features appearances by RZA, Anderson .Paak, Freddie Gibbs, BJ The Chicago Kid, Vic Mensa, Sia, Busta Rhymes, CeeLo Green, Theophilus London, Doja Cat and many others.
With the upcoming release, Spiegel will also be changing his stage name to Sam I. In a letter to his fans, Sam explains:
With Random Shit from the Internet Era, I’ll be releasing my first album as a solo artist. Like so many things in our world, I’ve gone through a huge transition these past few years, and I feel like I’m embarking on a new life…I’m clearing my slate with Random Shit… It is a new beginning for me. My music coming out going forward is not reiterations of old songs modernized, but where I stand now and into the future. It is day one for me in my new life as a grown-ass human and artist, and so I’ll be releasing everything from here on out under my new name, Sam I, both on the audio and the visual side. I hope you all come along on this new adventure with me.
In addition to being a founding member of N.A.S.A., Spiegel has also served as Music Director for Kanye West and Karen O, directed the web series “Wu Tang In Space Eating Impossible Sliders,” composed the scores to Spike Jonze’s Yeah Right!, HBO’s “Pretty Things” and Drew Barrymore’s Whip It, and much more.
