Sam Feldt has been providing a great service to his fans during these socially-distanced times thanks to his weekly Sunday Sessions live stream. These spontaneous DJ streams are broadcast simultaneously on Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram and see the Dutch DJ explore a different style to his IRL DJ sets.
“I started hosting the Sunday Sessions as a creative outlet for myself” he explains. “Because I can’t play real live shows right now, I miss the art of mixing and experimenting behind the decks a lot. None of these sets are pre-planned and they rarely contain my own music, forcing me to be extra creative and constantly be on the lookout for the perfect next tune to play.” They are of a fluid length, from 30 minutes up to several hours, depending on his mood, and feature trippy visuals on a green screen behind Sam. He’s also building some professional decor for future streams.
His Sunday Sessions focus on melodic house and techno, with forays into the more hypnotic end of those sounds. “This is the music I love vibing out to on Sundays myself and doing these weekly streams gives me the ideal opportunity to share my personal favorites with the world. While they are nothing like the real live DJing experience, it offers me a way to connect with my fans virtually while breaking through genres and going out of my comfort zone playing records I don’t usually get to play.”
Sam has also been playing his own music during live streams at remarkable locations — including SLAM!’s broadcast from the top of the Euromast in Rotterdam, and for Spinnin’ Sessions (live and direct from his own kitchen!).
