Biography

Sidney Samson (born 2 October 1981) is a Dutch DJ and dance musician. Samson started DJing at the age of 13, focusing on hip hop music before working seriously on house music from 1999. He is a resident DJ at The Matrixx, a major Dutch nightclub and released "Bring That Beat Back" and "It’s All Funked Up" on the digidance and Spinnin' Records labels respectively. After collaborating with Gregor Salto, he formed his own record label, Samsobeats, in 2007.

Samson managed to get his debut single "Riverside" to #1 on the Dutch Top 40, #9 on the Australian ARIA Charts, #1 on the Irish Singles Chart, and #2 on the UK Singles Chart.

He released his second single "Shut Up and Let It Go" (featuring Lady Bee) in February 2010.

In 2011 Sidney Samson collaborated with the UK singer/songwriter Tara McDonald releasing "Set Me On Fire" through Spinnin Records, followed by "Dynamite" which was released through his own label Rock the Houze with Spinnin Records remixed by Nicky Romero.

Sidney brings a unique sound to every track, as he blurs the lines by mixing his love of hip-hop with underground EDM. He frequently collaborates with top industry influencers and has worked on hit tracks, including “Get Outta My Way” by Kylie Minogue, “Getting Over You” and “Commander” by David Guetta, “Hello” by Solveig and “Hip Hop” by Dead Prezz’s “Hip Hop”. After touring with LMFAO last summer, Sidney is back in the studio, working hard to put out new tracks for his fans. His recent hits include “I Can Give You Anything You Want” with Far East Movement and Flo Rida, and “Better than Yesterday” with will.i.am. He is also playing at shows around the US, including his huge residency at The Wynn clubs in Las Vegas.[citation needed]
