Sam is a Melbourne based DJ and producer.
Sam Gregory has been living through music for as long as he has been breathing. Being surrounded by the endless rhythms and melodies found in nature is a constant inspiration, driving him to veer away from current trends in sound and toward his own style of resilient, synthetic and acoustic aural exploits.
Beginning with 5 years of classical piano training, he marched through a veritable array of other instruments until discovering sampling and synthesis in the summer of 1998. Focusing his productions on mood and emotion, creating atmospheres and almost soundtrack-like pieces attracted the attention of local independent filmmakers for whom he crafted soundtracks. One of which, Perpetual Transience was nominated for an ATOM award. However, the allure of the groove proved irresistible.
Landing his first club DJ residency at 18 (as soon as it was legal), he helped shape and sharpen the nightlife in the ancient island paradise of Tasmania, Australia. He held residencies at all major clubs and bars in the state before spreading his wings for the mainland.
Since then he has performed live shows locally and interstate, expanded his musical horizons and released music across several labels. His debut release on Barbecue Records in 2017 charted at #18 in the Traxsource techno charts. He continues playing regularly at clubs and bars interstate and all over Melbourne with venues such as Workshop, Loop, Sloth Bar, Blue Diamond, Lumia, Club23, and Rainbow Serpent Festival’s famed theme camps and a monthly slot on Kiss FM. You may see him playing as himself or perhaps his more funk-fiendish house-obsessed alter-ego Greg Kopf.
His sets are sonic novels; weaving the crowd through a storyline in which each person on the dance floor is a protagonist, narrated by the music. Sam’s signature sound is unmistakable but he’s never afraid to venture off the beaten path into new dimensions, when the energy is right. Hypnotic grooves, foundation-shaking bass lines, ethereal melodies and searing synth lines are all at home in his selections. His sound has been described as if “machines wrote the soundtrack to the apocalypse”, as well as “a waking dream-state”.
Nasty, serene, brooding and angelic aren’t often associated with one another; but that’s just what Sam does best. While it’s true he has been breaking new ground in the infinite universe of music for many years now, it is only a mere taste of things to come.
