Real Name: Sam Andrus

Have you ever suddenly realized it’s 5am? Sam Andrus has, many times. After attending the Rhode Island School of Design he decided to throw himself into electronic music. Using a guitar, countless max for live plugins, an evolving sound design palette and an affinity for space bass, 5am leads expeditions into the unknown through sound, crafting synesthetic beats that synthesize the real and the imaginary, and blur the familiar and the unrecognizable.

Driftoff EP

5am: Producer

In Driftoff, 5AM takes you on a journey through funkadelic beatscapes and glitch-glazed electro-soul, where glitch hop meets post-Dilla. Amid the chaos of the digital, you can hear something very human.
