Sammy Porter's Exclusive Mix
 
Sammy Porter enjoyed a breakthrough summer in 2018 with festival dates at Creamfields, ABODE In The Park, and We Are FSTVL, as well as club dates at Ushuaia in Ibiza and E1 in London. On the production front he’s carried the momentum over nicely after his hit “A Bit Patchy,” dropping an official remix for Jack Wins on Axtone and delivering in a big way with his new single “Breaking.” We’ve got the inside scoop on all below, so read on!
 
 
Sammy, pleasure to have you with us today! How’s your year going so far?
Yeah really well man, been a busy one.. loads of Ibiza, Dubai, Marbella, Greek islands, the lot. Plus been hammering the studio sorting out my releases into next year.

Can you highlight three tracks that stand out to you from your Exclusive Mix today and tell us why you chose them?
Le Cheval - “Fandango.” Can see this track blowing up massively, such an earworm of a hook and a club monster (plus they got me on the remix, which I’ve chucked a little snippet off into the mix).

Basement Jaxx - “Where’s Your Head At” (Wh0 Remix). So many DJs asking me for this one and it’s a roller that still keeps the instant familiarity of the original.

Dakar ft. Solo Tamas - “Red Cup” (Myles Club Edit). Real stomper of a bassline that’s never failed me in a club.
 

You’ve enjoyed some tremendous success over the last year with your biggest single “A Bit Patchy.” What inspired you to make that record?
In all honesty I wanted a club mix of the Switch version that no one else had. Then it took on a life of its own, went from an edit that I was keeping for my DJ sets to a full release.

Now you’re continuing the ride with a brand new single with Asabe called “Breaking,” so tell us about that record. How did the two of you get acquainted and what was it like working together with her?
We met at a Sony / Ultra writing camp in June. Real talent, she can sing, songwrite, DJ & producer all herself! We went away to work on breaking offline but she is definitely someone to watch out for. She and her brother Parker have written for all sorts of artists – Nicki Minaj, G Easy, the lot! It samples an old Roman Flugel record from Skint Records which was the icing on the cake of Asabe’s vocals.
 

If you had the chance to spend one hour in the studio with any musician, dead or alive, who would it be?
I’d have to say Fatboy Slim. It was really his stuff that got me into dance music, before then I was a hip hop head. I could probably write out the entire lyrics to the Slim Shady LP, from start to finish on this very interview!

How does your Exclusive Mix with us today differ from your live sets?
Tried to keep some throwback familiarity with the vocals on this mix, you will definitely know some of the originals to the stuff I’m playing in this mix.

Finally, what can we expect from you in the upcoming months? Any exciting releases in the pipeline that you can tell us about?
Working on a more underground remix of “Breaking” currently. A lot more club and underground stuff is lined up, sprinkled with some nice vocal lead productions.
