A multidisciplinary artist based in Naarm Melbourne, BAMITSSAM continuously explores the intersections between different art forms and mediums, creating work that combines auditory and visual experiences.
Growing up in a Filipino household in the South East suburbs, her art is influenced by those around her and their diverse cultural backgrounds. From Magic Sing Karaoke to listening to her sibling's CDs, Bam was always intrigued by music as it was always around.
We can see the influence music has on her through her photography and videography including music videos and events she captures. Through BAMSAM she is able to share her eclectic selects and sounds with the world.
"This mix that I made is inspired by my Everything Everywhere All At Once lifestyle. This includes: digging for edits while travelling to shoots, going out listening to high-tempo music, and ending the night chillin’ listening to beats."
For The Honeys Volume 28 reflects this motive, containing a fusion of Future Beats, RnB, Bounce, Hip-hop, Baile Funk and much more.
"A big part in the art I create is to always put on and show love to the community around me. I had to make sure I gave flowers to some of my favourite local womxn producers, writers and artists.
BIG SHOUTS to MIRASIA, Vv Pete, PANIA, Pastels, Elysia, Mulalo, Khya, Vetta Borne and CD. Towards the end of the mix I also had to pay homage to the great Gangsta Boo. If you know you know."
