Premiere: Spinnin’ Sessions 250 – Sidney Samson
Returning for another weekly episode to highlight some of the most exceptional tracks in the dance music scene, both current and upcoming releases, Spinnin’ Sessions’ monumental 250th episode has just dropped. This week, listeners are treated to a guest mix from Dutch DJ/Producer Sidney Samson, who has a vast catalogue of diverse releases, many of which were released on Spinnin’ Records itself.
Having garnered support from major artists early on in his career, Sidney Samson has had a huge impact on the scene, releasing a variety of massive hits, including his timeless “Riverside“, which had a stratospheric impact every single time it was played following its release, and still continues to send crowds into a frenzy to this day with its iconic drop. Samson is without doubt one of the industry’s most versatile artists, with the ability to excel in whichever sub-genre he chooses, from ground-shaking big room to dirty dutch influenced future bass.
This week’s Spinnin’ Sessions episode kicks off in upbeat style with Joe Stone‘s latest Spinnin’ release “Is It Really Love” featuring Cr3on. Continuing in euphoric style, the mix also features Bingo Players’ upcoming track “Everybody”, KSHMR‘s “House of Cards” and TV Noise‘s “captivating “Run”. This week’s Spotify selection is Bali Bandits’ house weapon “2 Supermodels”, released on Spinnin Premium earlier this year. Finishing off the mix, R3hab & Mike Williams’ vicious anthem “Lullaby” brings the first half of Spinnin’ Sessions to a close in adrenaline-fueled style.
Sidney Samson kicks off his guest mix with his new track “The Officer” with none other than Shaggy! The Dutch maestro then follows up with some Dancehall action under his other moniker Deadly Zoo and “One World” followed up by Munchi‘s take on his own “Boneknuckles” alongside Heartbreak. Samson keeps the momentum going with J Hus’ Hip Hop track “Did You See”. Things only get dirtier from there when Loud N Dirty & Ivan Dola‘s bring fat basslines and filthy wobble synths with “La Carretilla”. He finally closes out with Juyen Sebulba‘s innovative remix of Diplo & Autoerotique‘s “Waist Time”.
We Rave You recently had the chance to speak to Sidney Samson to find out what fans can soon expect from him.
What have you been up to lately?
I have been working on a collab with Tujamo; we recently released a new version of ‘Riverside’ titled ‘Riverside (Reloaded)’! I have just finished an album, which is heavily Dance hall influenced and a new single with Shaggy which will drop soon. Other than that a lot of touring and remixing; over the last few months I remixed under the “Deadly Zoo” moniker for Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias and Sean Paul to name a few.
What did you have in mind for this Guest Mix?
I wanted this guest mix to have the records that worked best in my sets over the last few months. All tried and tested on the dancefloor!
