DescriptionMore quality house beats from the label to love, the second of our eOn The Rocks series this time mixed by the newest kid on the block Sam Young n this album is packed full of obscure hard to find classics, mixed with current dance floor bangers Sam Young has been responsible for the soundtrack to Londons greatest parties over the last twelve yearsO
Sam was also the first person to be awarded the 'Best DJ' award twice at the London club and bar awards in 2007 and 2010. Sam has continued to be an ambassador for Red Bull (entertaining the crowds at their Monaco Grand Prix party three times now). Sam has played Royal Weddings (Freddie Windsor) to rock superstar's birthday bashes (Elton John) to Film Premieres (Sex and the City and The Golden Compass) to opening concerts for acts like Tiesto, Pete Tong, Bob Sinclar, Mark Ronson, Hot Chip and Wiley. And many exclusive parties for the likes of Gucci, Damien Hirst, Laureus World Sports awards, BAFTA, The Brit Awards, Kings of Leon, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, 50 Cent, Naomi Campbell and many more.
Sam has taken his Nod Factor & Blowout party brand London-wide; from its highly gossiped about beginnings at Bungalow 8 (seeing Sam DJ alongside Chase & Status, Shy Fx, DJ Yoda, Jaguar Skillz, Hot Chip, Benga, Roni Size, De La Soul, Skream, Caspa, Crookers, Adam F, Zinc, Shortee Blitz, DJ Swerve and the Loose Cannons etc). Celebs such as Lohan, Barton, Keshe, Estelle and more credibly Arthur Baker hit the dancefloor.
Sams Nod Factor label has continued to pump out the storming releases, 2011 saw work from major dance names Felix Da Housecat, DJ Pierre, DJ Skribble and Supafly Inc release new music alongside Sam's own remixes of Nod Factor artists. Sam even had time to remix for the likes of Timo Maas. 2012 will see a lot more releases and remixes from Sam. This year has already seen Tiesto, Dash Berlin, KISS and Capital support Sam's remix of Lykke Li's 'I Follow River's'. And Sam's remix of Cassie's 'King of Hearts' had her fans going YouTube crazy with other 70,000 joint views.
