Sidney Samson: “We Rule The House Scene”
EXCLUSIVE! The DJ/Producer talks Dutch domination and the rise and rise of Las Vegas…
Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 10:48
“In Vegas everything is on point. The sound is great, the girls look great and we have a blast every time – especially my tour manager who is a babe magnet!” joked the 31-year-old.
When asked about the Vegas crowd he continued: “Every time is a different experience because it’s a holiday spot – it’s the Ibiza of the States so you never know what you’re going to get but it’s always high energy, people are coming to party and there’s always someone celebrating something!”
With Electronic Dance Music influencing the airwaves around the world it’s no surprise that DJs have had to become performers to stay at the top of the game: “It’s not only playing records, you really have to do something and have fun with the crowd. Of course there are DJs who like to stare at their mixers for two hours and leave but I think that’s really boring.”
And it seems ‘boring’ is not a word in the Nevada city’s vocabulary – even the Asian restaurant we’re conducting the interview in – Andrea’s – integrated into Surrender and Encore Beach Club has a resident musical chef. Oh and it’s Steve Angello...
So what does Sidney attribute the Dutch domination of dance music to? “You ask the question and I have the answer. I’m gonna break it down. In Holland the only thing we can do is make music. We can’t sing, we can’t rap, we can’t dance, we only know how to treat water, paint and make music.
“So when you’re good at something you specialise in it. We rule the house scene. Before we all came here we all played in Holland so if you do 30 gigs a months you see each other all the time. Some nights I would play after Afrojack, some nights I would play before Chuckie, other gigs I would see Laidback Luke leaving the parking lot it’s just the way it went down. There is a friendship of course because we all succeeded in what we wanted to do 10 years ago.”
So it’s no coincidence then that the 2013 MTV EMAs are in Amsterdam, and according to SS it’s a match made in heaven: “It’s gonna be one hell of a party for sure!”.
