Dutch house exemplar and Rock The Houze forbearer Sidney Samson has seemingly balanced the best of both worlds, rallying fatal floor fuel originals and high profile remix duties alike throughout his career. Last found behind the wheel of Dreamfields 2013 anthem “Good Time,” Samson keeps the floor-fuel coming, this time alongside up-and-coming Dutch peers Killfake. A grinding electro set piece of chugging riffs and mechanical beats, “Revenge of Acid” nods solemnly to the infamous acid sound whilst injecting a good proportion of Samson’s own festival-proofed get-up. With the flood gates now open for Killfake to show the full extent of what they are made of, Samson’s latest collaborative stint is sure to fare well on his global tour duties for the remainder of the summer.
Before you start wondering what a Disney star, a Pittsburgh rapper and a Dutch DJ are doing in the same track, fear not — when that DJ is Sidney Samson, musical integrity is preserved. While the Rock The Houze label head took a risk on his remix of Ariana Grande and Mac Miller’s “The Way,” “remix” isn’t quite the right word for the work done. Sidney stripped the sugary song down to just Ariana’s vocal, cutting the melody and Mac Miller entirely. Left in their stead is a house sound that teeters on the brink of progressive before swinging back to a stuttering minimal electro. Though no release date has been announced, “The Way” proved once again that Sidney knows his way around a remix.
Sidney Samson returns to the release circuit fresh from of the success of monster hits “Torrent” and “Move,” taking his Rock The Houze imprint by storm this April. He turns up the dial on his signature dance floor-dominating antics and stays true to his roots on his latest collaboration with Gwise entitled “Go.” Thumping kickdrum and snare snaps join synths waves for a melodic introduction, but Sidney flips his production on its head with the drop — projecting his grinding electro bassline deeper than ever.

Samson will officially release “Go” through his new record label Rock the Houze on April 8, but expect the track to be heard across the beaches of Miami next week.
When Sidney Samson says move, you listen. Coming off the success of his synthy collab with Martin Garrix, “Torrent,” the Dutch producer is back with the aptly titled “Move.” The track kicks off with a tech intro that builds into full-fledged electro, with a grimy beat and a thrown in “what” or two. Incorporating snare builds and a siren that rises along with them, “Move” is classic Sidney with a festival-ready kick.
