"Next Big Nashville Performance Review"

"Yay! Nashville got itself some Party Rock! These guys have a great thing going – a mash up of Hip Hop and Eletro that caters to everyone that likes to…well, have fun. “We Do” should already be a national club hit, and once they breakthrough they’ll take off thanks to the true musical gift of mastering intoxicating hooks and incorporating old school practices and influences into a modern mold." -

"Nashville Scene | Best Rap Single 2010"

It took all of, say, 15 seconds of "We Do" to realize that Sam & Tre don't roll like the rest of Music City's rap acts. The first few piano stabs have an '80s-reggae vibe, but once that bass drops — or more accurately, barrels through your internal organs — it's nothing but next school. Tre's got a Cool Hand Luke kind of nonchalance on the microphone — say a prayer for the city's parking meters and hide your hard boiled eggs — that makes the party-chant chorus an instant hands-in-the-air classic.

"Debut Performance Review"

Our timing couldn't have been better though, as we walked into the Mercy Lounge just as Sam & Tre were dropping “We Do,” their debut single and the best damn rap song to come out of Nashville in ... shit, in as long as we can remember. If you wanted to get technical, Sam & Tre play progressive Southern dub-rap, full of big huge wobble bass and tight, laid-back rhymes. Sam is the little brother/production partner of local luminary Kidsmeal, and Tre is possibly the most charismatic new MC we've seen in a while — he's low-key and doesn't try to impress you, mostly because he can tell you're already impressed. Their live show was way stronger than a debut performance has a right to be and they came out swinging. Mark our words: These kids are going places. - Nashville Cream


"Whether he [Tre] is on stage alone or with a band, his voice and presence are undeniable, and his star is fast on the rise" -- Concrete Magazine - Concrete Magazine

"Sam (Intramural Production)"

On This Is A Landslide, the former Desaparecidos guitarist and Statistics frontman and Sam Shacklock have stitched a recurring motif of loneliness and heartbreak throughout a wildly varying cadre of singers. The juxtaposition of their cool, detached electronic beats and samples and the often heavily effects-laden vocals achieve a sort of middle ground of feeling. - Alternative Press


Still working on that hot first release.



After being introduced during a 2008 recording session in Nashville, Sam and Tre, along with DJ Kidsmeal, decided to collaborate and see what happened. Eventually, their unique brand of Electro Glitch Hip Hop was born. With roots in Hip Hop and Rock, their unique group represents all of their respective upbringings in London, Atlanta and Trenton, Tennessee, while still keeping an international sensibility.

Sam has produced artists such as Josh Doyle, Circle of Sound, Intramural, and Damien Horne, just to name a few. Sam and Tre have recently performed major music events such as Nashville's 8 Off 8th/BMI promotional series at Mercy Lounge, RedGorilla Music Fest, and SXSW festival.

Sam and Tre’s forthcoming EP effort will be their first collaborative recording. While showcasing their own unique sound, they hope to channel influences such as Producer/Composer Alan Shacklock (Sam’s father), Jimi Hendrix, Bach, Kanye West, Tupac Shakur and Michael Jackson.

In the upcoming months, you can catch Sam and Tre, along with DJ Kidsmeal, hosting all-night parties at schools, houses, and even makeshift music venues from Nashville to Miami to London, where Sam and Kidsmeal are no stranger to the diverse music scene.
