After taking a break from his renowned AV shows, and keeping original releases close to his chest since his debut album in 2012, Soul Has No Tempo proudly present Natural Selections, the breathtakingly refreshing second EP from prominent producer, Sampology

The relentlessly innovative Brisbane native releases his best and most personal work to-date. As a torchbearer for collaborative inspiration, Sampology’s passion for extracting and supporting emerging talent from the depths of Brisbane’s evolving Soul/Electronic scene shines with Natural Selections, with collaboration being the pinnacle of the EP. 

Exposing a previously untapped side of his vast musical sphere, Natural Selections is an exquisite 6-track EP that delves into Sampology’s afro-percussive and organic influences which he has masterfully produced and laced with lush, live elements throughout. The producer is at the core of the live instrumentation on Natural Selections, playing keys, Kalimba, live percussion, Rhodes and drum programming – a highlight being the engagement of renowned composer and conductor, Gordon Hamilton, arranging strings on lead single "Thicker Than Water". 

Sampology has called on a number of Brisbane artists/friends that represent a new wave in soulful electronic music to lend their talents, with the producers own family also collaborating on the music and art. Featuring artists like Hiatus Kaiyote cover artist Laneous, NZ-born/Berlin-based (via Brisbane) artist Noah Slee as well as his own family laying the building blocks of Natural Selections. His father Ken Poggioli playing upright bass, his aunt Helen Poggioli playing viola and his mother Sue Poggioli creating the artwork and visuals that will feature throughout his new live show, it is a true labour of love.
