Responsible for one of the biggest club hits of 2010, Dutch DJ Sidney Samson is one of the most in-demand remixers on the dance scene.
Born in 1981, Samson started playing guitar at seven years old, before switching his attention to DJing after watching the DMC Mix Championships at the age of 14. Initially playing R&B and hip-hop tunes, he soon became influenced by the burgeoning Dutch house music scene, and eventually took a residency at the Matrixx nightclub in Amsterdam. After forming his own label, Samsobeats, with collaborator Gregor Salto
in 2007, he enjoyed success in his country with several singles. Three years later, a remixed version of "Riverside," featuring Wizard Sleeve
, gave him his international breakthrough, reaching number ten in Australia and number two in the U.K., selling 97,000 copies in its first week. Samson has since been working on his debut album and toured the U.S. and Canada, and has remixed tracks for Kylie Minogue
, Kelly Rowland
, and David Guetta
