Biography

Mr Sam was born during the mid seventies just as punk was emerging from beneath the ruins of stadium-rock, he grew up in a small idyllic village near the Belgian border in the north of France.

From an early age, Sam had no escape from his parents own musically mixed cocktails of Giorgio Moroder, Klaus Schulz combined with a dash of Elvis Presley. Through this heavy involuntary dose of electronically initiated influence, he developed an early fascination for squelchy synthesizer sounds and after buying his first Depeche Mode single, he was firmly hooked. But it seemed like from here to eternity before he was to pick up his own musical instrument.

With the advent of technologically generated Hi-NRG dance music and through his passion for playing computer games, he had by the mid-eighties almost drowned in the tidal wave of New Beat which was flooding over the borders from the flourishing Belgian EBM scene.

By the sweet age of sixteen, he’d become so intoxicated by the new techno music evolving from the underground scene, that he chose to embark upon a musical career and made the decision to cross the French frontier and move over to Belgium. By the time he was 18, he was successfully DJing at French and Belgian underground clubs to ever enthusiastic crowds.

Over the years, as trance music rapidly succeeded techno as the popular music genre of the 90’s, Mr Sam was to play together with some of the dance industry’s top dj’s at a variety of colorful locations, from France, Belgium, Portugal, Holland, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and Corsica or at events like the legendary and immensely popular I Love TECHNO festival in Gent.
