After a hugely successful 2016, we kick off 2017 back @ Glasgow's SWG3 with our 2nd Birthday on the 24th of March as we welcome one of the most in-demand Techno artists in the industry - Sam Paganini.
Sam has catapulted into the elite top bracket of DJs and producers in the scene since his critically acclaimed "Satellite" LP released on Adam Beyer's "Drumcode" imprint in September 2014. “Rave” has become an instant classic, a timeless piece of music that stayed on the #1 Beatport Techno spot for more than two months - and for more than a year and a half in its overall chart - gaining more than five million clicks on Youtube (becoming the most clicked Techno track ever). Since 1996 - a landmark year for him thanks to the worldwide success of his track “Zoe” produced as Paganini Traxx - Sam's stylistic experimentations have gone from strength to strength, leading him to collaborate and release his music on several record labels until Techno pioneer Richie Hawtin welcomed him to his "Plus8" imprint in 2011 with the “Cobra” EP. With the subsequent releases of the “Body To Body” EP on "Cocoon Recordings" and the “Prisma”, “Eros” and “Black Leather” EPs on Drumcode, all reaching the highest spots on Beatport’s Techno chart, his unique musical journey has achieved great success both on the underground circuit as well as on the mainstream channels. The track “Polyester” (with “Fire In My Arms” one of the smashing hits from the “Body To Body” EP) was featured both on the playlists of many underground DJs and on those of some of biggest names in the industry like Moby, becoming Beatport’s “Techno Track Of 2013”. To this day, Sam proudly stands out as the only Italian artist to release under his own name on Plus8, Cocoon and Drumcode.
