Sam Feldt is undoubtedly one of the hottest names in dance music right now. Signed early on by Dutch label Spinnin’ Records, Feldt has risen to the highest ranks of electronic music stardom. Sam ended 2017 with a bang, releasing his debut album Sunrise and followup compilation album Sunrise to Sunset. He also hit 2018 running with After The Sunset, a remix album released February 2018, just in time for Miami Music Week where a bigger and better Heartfeldt Pool Party is returning for a second year. EDMTunes got the chance to interview Spinnin’s twenty-four year old star about his journey to the top, his remix of Kygo‘s ‘Permanent,’ and his plans for Miami!
EDMTunes: Meteoric would not even begin to describe your rise in the dance music scene.You’ve been releasing singles since 2014 but you already have a huge following. With over 600,000 followers on Facebook alone, how does it feel rising to the top of the scene in just three short years?
Sam Feldt: Well, it’s been quite the ride so far and I can’t wait what the future holds in store for me. I can still remember being a kid and hearing dance music for the first time or at the age of 17 stepping into the club and knowing that this was something that I wanted to pursue and give a serious shot. Look at where we are now, it a dream come true, being able to do what I love so much and make other people happy with my music.
Spinnin’ picked you up pretty early, releasing your remake of ‘Show Me Love‘ in 2015 and all your albums and EPs have been released on the Dutch label. It seems you found your home fairly quickly! What is it about Spinnin’ Records that makes it the best fit for Sam Feldt?
SF: Spinnin’ has been there with me on this journey from the start and they have always been super supportive and made it possible for me to express myself musically. Spinnin’ also knows like no other what needs to be done to get your music out in the world so people from all over the globe get in touch with your music. They’ve always been very open to new ideas that I expressed both on a musical and business level. So yeah, I’m very happy to be part of the Spinnin’ family.
