Sam Fraser Beatport



Born in Melbourne, 28 year old Sam Fraser grew up in a house where it seemed speakers grew out of the walls. Constantly surrounded and influenced by his dad’s passion for music, TV became a rarity and music became the essence that is at the core of his chosen career.

Considered a local veteran and stalwart of the Australian dance music scene, it seems like only yesterday that he put his first needle to the record. Now more than 10 years on and Sam can lay claim to maintaining some of the longest weekly club residencies of this decade.

Distinctively blending all forms of electronic music with his major influences coming from deep house, progressive and techno. Sam’s never-ending quest for quality music whilst maintaining his integrity and presenting his own unique interpretation, is a testament to his ability to captivate a dance floor. It’s this integrity that has led Sam to a number of performances in the UK, New Zealand and Portugal, including a weekly residency in Lisbon throughout 2005. In addition, Sam has performed at weekly Melbourne venues such as Room680, Candy Bar, One Six One, F*ck Mondays, Tramp, Famous, and Q Bar Sundays ? the most talked about Sunday night in Melbourne, since Sean Quinn and Kasey Taylor brought Sam into the mix back in 1998.

Turn to 2008 and Sam has added to the resume with a weekly show on Melbourne’s top dance music radio station Kiss FM with friends Keltec and Katie Drover. And if one wasn’t enough, Sam also co-hosts his own radio show ?Speaker Syrup? via internet based station Proton Radio.

Embarking on yet another journey into production, Sam has recently had tracks released on Kriece’s Arabica label, a 3 track EP on Proton Music and more have just been signed to Eric Powell and Carl Cox’s new label “Chase the Cat” (Due out early April).

With a drive, determination and skill that is a rarity these days, in an environment that continues to saturate with an ever expanding and populous market, one thing is certain: Sam’s here to stay and this ‘choose your own adventure’ will be filled with more twists and turns than the Tour De France.
