Artist Focus

Sam Paganini


Italian Sam Paganini has released on three of techno’s most claimed labels like Plus8, Cocoon and of course Drumcode, which brings us to his first appearance with LWE at, yeah you guessed it… Drumcode Halloween!

But before looking forward let us take things back a bit. 1996 was a landmark year for him, and a real kickstart for him. It’s hard to believe it was 20 years since his track ‘Zoe’ was released, and that was the cornerstone for his journey through techno. Experimenting with his sound in the studio, Sam’s DJ sets reflect a sexy, groovy and darker blend of vibrations. This niche has made his sets uplifting, forward thinking and constantly evolving with new movements and ideas from a variety of musical avenues. His encyclopaedic knowledge of electronic music, passion and hedonistic outlook has taken him on a pilgrimage around the world’s best clubs, from Berghain t0 Cielo and many more underground haunts.

We’re really looking forward to having him with us at Tobacco Dock for the first time, but for now, we’ll leave you with his track ‘Rave’ which is testament to what this guy is about.

Drumcode Halloween is back at Tobacco Dock this October, marking its seventh year of debauchery. A spine-tingling lineup that sees Drumcode’s most iconic artists, play alongside a host of special guests drawn from every end of the techno spectrum.
