Sam Vicary A.K.A Hunrosa (meaning “to dream”) is an electronic music producer capturing the wild organic senses of his childhood and anchoring it with a darker 2am undercurrent. Based in Manchester, he is principally a bassist and currently a member of The Cinematic Orchestra, Paper Tiger and The Dominic J Marshall Trio, as well as performing with Manu Delago, Imogen Heap, Matthew Halsall, Anil Sebastian and Stuart Macallum.
His latest offering ‘Ransome’ is a heavily rhythmic journey, full of textured hand percussion and soaring strings, accompanied by the beautifully melodic vocals of Alice Higgins drifting overhead.
The Clap! Clap! remix sees the Black Acre mainstay exploring expansive territories, polyrhythmic hand percussion and textured electronica perfectly intertwine, drenched in dub ambience, heightened by scattered arpeggios and swirling synths. The music is inspired by a coastal upbringing, represented in the music via field recordings, as well as being aided by visual stimulus throughout the writing process.

“Sam Vicary (aka Husrosa) has infused his new single ‘Ransome’ with all the lotus blossom of a new spring with Alice Higgins on vocals and a wicked upfront beat.
Set up for some trendy remix you think? You think right courtesy of Clap! Clap! (Cristiano Crisci) of course as it’s all ’round the camp fire on the Serengeti for a big tune.
However, the killer tune is the more developed album version that explores further the light and dark of the track.” Gerry Hectic, 60 Million Postcards / Bournemouth / Futuristica Music / Jazz Chronicles
