Samantha MichelleRequest Talent
Internationally renowned for delivering feel-good, genre-transcendent experiences to industry-leading music festivals, fashion brands, media publications, nightclubs, art galleries, hotels, members clubs and private events, Samantha Michelle is an electrifying tour de force of her own meticulous craft and creation. She’s opened for music legends including the likes of Duran Duran, Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson, LCD Soundsystem, Miley Cyrus, DJ Ruckus, and Bachman Turner Overdrive, and headlined shows with audiences in the thousands.
By happenstance, her DJ career kicked off one unforgettable night at London’s Groucho Club. A decade onward, this happy accident has materialized into a full-time focus as she continues to fill dancefloors around the world. Toronto-born and London-bred, Samantha now splits her time between New York and Los Angeles, and vanguards a versatile sound that has taken her from Burning Man to Beverly Hills, the South of France to the Swiss Alps.
Regularly headlining exclusive events and esteemed nightlife locales like London’s Loulou’s, NY’s Butterfly and LA’s Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, her recent accolades also include a June 2022 tenure aboard Paramount’s yacht at Cannes Lions as well as commissions in both 2019 and 2020 from Wall Street Journal to perform at both Cannes Lions and Davos for the World Economic Forum. Other recent highlights include spinning for Christian Louboutin, back-to-back bicoastal gigs for Dolce & Gabbana, performances at Soho Desert House Coachella, luxurious Hamptons events and the launch of Lotus Cars’ new luxury model. She’s also DJ’d private events for brands such as Bulgari, Versace, Harper’s Bazaar, Rolling Stone, Christie’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Carolina Herrera. Notably, Samantha has headlined festivals in the UK and the US like Glastonbury, The Secret Garden Party, Red Rooster and MemphoFest.
With her distinctive blend of remixed classics and contemporary gems spanning the gamut from house, disco and EDM to rock, soul and pop, the Samantha Michelle experience is hallmarked by her ecstatic touch on open-format excellence.
Eclectic & Upbeat. Samantha collaborates with clients to craft an individualized sound, stamped by her soulful and classic signature. Her sets are inspired by her love for the spirit of the 60s and 70s, the uninhibited ethos and free-flowing energy encapsulated in the era, yet she infuses modern elements, weaving in the music of the heirs to the blues, dashing in a little disco and dropping in hints of early hip hop. Working with her extensive knowledge of music history, whilst forever reading the room, she simultaneously embraces the familiar and treasures the rare as she expertly creates mixes that are accessible, exciting, and ultimately, enlivening.
