Sam Bekt

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist Poll Winner: Sam Bekt

You might catch Sam Becht, a.k.a. Sam Bekt, at a show or on tour behind the skins with bands such as Epitaph Records’s Remo Drive and Long Island’s Oolong, who have helped to inspire him to want songs of his own. Thus, Selfie was created – a record of “stylish, homespun, pop melancholia”. It instantly captured our attention and a nomination for our Featured Artist(s) Poll, where Becht also recently emerged victorious. Take a moment, and find out more about the Philly renaissance man HERE.

   

New Sam Bekt LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sam Becht, operating under the pseudonym Sam Bekt, offers up stylish, homespun, pop melancholia on their album Selfie. A reflection on our culture of burnout and tech malaise, the LP combines field recordings and samples into songs that play cheerful despite taking on darker topics like social media validation and post-grad listlessness. The tracks touch on many genres without landing in one particular spot, giving Becht plenty of room to flex their producer chops. Tracks like “Switzerland” and “Sign Off” display an impressive range in style when put side by side, never deviating from offering a clean and full sound. You can take Selfie for a spin below. - Josh Kelly
