Don Sampe interviewed by Traxx24
Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?
Hey there to all Traxx24 readers! This is Don Sampe and I am a Spanish producer and DJ. As a producer, I have been producing some Electro songs like Starlight in 2016, through which I have been nominated as opener for the Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa's "High Road" Tour in Dallas, Texas. I would release No Time in 2017, in which I would emphasize in the Hard House style until I make my sounds mature with my Bootlegs of Shape Of You in 2018 and Mi Gente in 2019.
How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?
I have been changed a lot through the years. First of all, in 2010, I had an opportunity to go to a Steve Aoki show in a small village in my region. I remember that night as if it was yesterday, I think everything changed to me after that night. Before that, I was just influenced by Deadmau5 and Tiësto, but after that in my mind, there was only to become someone like them. Some years later here I am, trying to make some space between the people. I crossed through Progressive House to Melbourne Bounce, Electro House, Future House and recently I am enjoying some Bass House and Hard House, also starting to feel love about Tech-House. Sometimes my brain becomes a volcano.
What´s new right now?
I have in mind to play in some clubs in Cracow, Poland, where I have been living recently and also to record a set in a professional DJ room in the city. Also from April, I have just been confirmed as a resident DJ in the Greek island of Rhodes, so I cannot be happier at all. At last, if readers are interested in my journey, they can follow me on social networks and I hope to see you into the crowd!
Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into a super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?
With no doubts at all, I have a weakness for historical DJs and producers like Deadmau5, Eric Prydz, Steve Angello and some others like the Pardon My French or Harsh crews, those in which I am more influenced right now.
Do you have insights on how to grow your audience on SoundCloud that you want to share with our audience?
Just make and upload music the more the better and with the best quality, the success will arrive sooner or later if you were born to be successful.
We meet again in one year. What has changed?
Me coming back from my own Tour with a lot of new tracks made by me, that would be damn sick.
