If you’ve ever received a missed call from an unknown number at 5am there’s a good chance it was Hey Sam, walking out of his last gig for the night, wearing his trademarked thick-framed glasses and probably looking for the closest pizza shop. He is indeed a creature of the night.
The Australian DJ/ Producer/ Record Label owner has forged his sound over many years, throwing down his brand of bass heavy house music in most decorated venues across Australia, all under the umbrella of the infamous LTM Crew.
In 2010, Sam gave birth to record label Jump To This, in partnership with Torren Foot the two continue to guide the label through a multitude of accolades including a string of Aria Chart and Beatport Chart nods.
Wearing his producer cap, Hey Sam’s ‘Tap That’ supported by US tastemaker ‘Gotta Dance Dirty’ peaked at number 17 on the Aria Club Chart, then the follow up ‘The Roof Off’ with Wildfire, reaching number 3 on the Indie Dance/Nu-Disco Beatport Chart.
Over the last 12 months Sam has dropped official remixes on Ministry of Sound, Onelove and Vicious Bitch, combined with a spade of bootlegs which has seen him clock up over half a million Soundcloud plays as well as many Triple J radio spins.
Metaphorically speaking, Hey Sam’s vision is clear. Create, release and play great dance records to the masses, whilst making plenty of friends along the way.
