Billboard Radio China got a chance to catch up with Sam Feldt backstage at Electric Jungle

Sam Feldt’s Sunrise to Sunset dual album is designed to be consumed throughout the span of 24 hours, 24 tracks for each part of the day representing the diversity of a day. One track for 9 in the morning while another is designed for 10 o’clock at night.

Not all of these songs are pure originals, though. Feldt has taken on a number of tracks to cover and makes them his own. As a child of the ’90s, the tracks he chose are anthems of his youth, songs with an emotional connection to his childhood and development as a DJ. Feldt explains that when he takes on these songs, it’s as important to him to keep a level of respect for the original material as it is to make his version unique and original.

From Robin S’s “Show Me Love” and La Bouche’s “Be My Lover” to Eagle Eye Cherry’s “Save Tonight” and Kenny Rogers and The First Edition’s “Just Dropped In (My Condition),” Sam Feldt takes these classics and turns them into brand-new creations, a 21st century take on historical greats.
