ABOUT

Fresh off of an opening performance for a sold out Tipper & Friends Tipsgiving at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, NY, the Philly-based producer/performer 5AM (Sam Andrus) has forged a style of bass music that opens portals between the mystical jazz fusion and soul of the past and the digital psychedelic pulse of the future. He excels in both raw organic musicality and crystal clear full-spectrum sound design, living for those moments of transcendence when two musical ideas merge into something brand new. True to that inspiration, 5AM also performs with a Trio. Featuring live drums and multi-instrumental performances from livetronice drummer ZONE Drums and fellow producer / multi-instrumentalist Tygris, The 5AM Trio is a channel through which to explore new musical territory and take the dance-floor on a one of a kind journey at every show. 5AM has stayed true to his nature as an explorer, and is now a seasoned performer who's shared the stage with Tipper, Shpongle, Jade Cicada, kLL sMTH, Detox Unit, Kalya Scintilla, Random Rab, and more, and lived and built strong roots up and down the east and west coasts of the US.
