Samantha Michelle is a Canadian DJ specializing in 60s 70s soul, rhythm and blues, ska, funk, disco and rock and roll. Her career kicked off one fateful evening at The Groucho Club in London, where she lived for five years, and ran residencies around Soho and East London. There, she worked extensively within the members club circuit, headlined music festivals such as Glastonbury, Red Rooster and The Secret Garden Party, and co-hosted a music history and culture show on the award-winning Soho Radio. Since moving over stateside in February, she's found herself entrenched in NYC's art and fashion communities, having spun for the likes of Saks Fifth Avenue, Christie's, Lululemon, The Morrison Hotel Gallery, Soho House, Good Luck Dry Cleaners, Omar's Park Avenue, New York Magazine's Vulture Festival, Topping Rose House, Joe and the Juice, Galore Magazine, and charitable organizations including God's Love We Deliver and Artists for Peace and Justice.
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.
