DJ Sammy B

"DJ Sammy B is UK based in South-east London / Kent. He got started in DJing in the early 1990’s when he bought his first set of turntables. Having older brothers who were into music when he was a youngster, he found that he was influenced by their musical tastes as there were lots of 7”, 12”, LPs and cassettes to listen to. He found that by making mixtapes and compilations for friends and family he received a lot of positive feedback. This led him to DJing at friends' and family house parties and other social events. He found that when DJing ‘live’ for people the feedback was immediate and to see people enjoying themselves gave him great satisfaction.

His aims as a DJ are to become more successful by having regular bookings to DJ at Corporate events, Bars / Nightclubs, Shop / Restaurant openings etc. and to ensure whilst doing so people are left entertained by what he has done.

DJ Sammy B’s influences are other DJs such as David Rodigan, Norman J, DJ EZ, Ray Keith, James Hype and Majestic.

Over a career spanning 25 plus years he has DJ’d at several friends and families' parties. Between 1995 and 2000 he was the resident DJ at BRUNEL UNIVERSITY STUDENT UNION at Isleworth and Uxbridge playing weekly. Highlights of his career so far include supporting DJ EZ at VOLTZ / THE WORKS and OPTIONS / OCEANIA in Kingston, Surrey and VICTOR SIMONELLI at Bar CANTINA in Croydon, Surrey.

He is currently the resident DJ at the Coney Hall Football Club, Kent and ongoing projects are regularly performing ‘live’ mixes on Facebook and uploading mixes to Mixcloud."
