LISTEN: Sam Frank – My Number One
Sam Frank proves that it’s still possible to maintain a mystique in the blog age. There’s barely a picture of him to be found, and I suppose his name is not exactly Google-friendly either. A look through his Discogs page reveals he’s largely a behind-the-scenes man, having produced and written for Sia, Mutya Buena, and more recently, Magnetic Man, Skream and Katy B. Based on that list of names, you might have certain expectations of what a track of his own would sound like. Well, throw them out. “My Number One”, currently the free track of the week on DJ Annie Mac’s blog (artwork above?), is the kind of tune that got just the right balance of bonkers and catchy factors that made it more than just a novelty standalone. Imagine a chirpy children’s show theme from another planet. Now listen.

Total earworm candy this is. Color me fascinated. I wonder what else he will come up with?
