Between hitting number one with chart-pleasing endeavour ‘Riverside’ and collaborating with the likes of Lil Jon, it is fair to say that Sidney Samson is a whole different entity amid the Dutch House crowd. Now solidly scaling the states with his pitch-pervading arsenal of scatty club gems, ‘Get Low’ emerges as yet another firm asset to his recently established Rock The Houze imprint.
Carrying the reassuringly familiar indiscretion between the high and low end, Samson’s grinding backdrop is ornamented with a stern array of piercing leads. While there is nothing to offend the more devout Dutch House fanatics within ‘Get Low’, there is an outstanding sense that Samson is firmly extending his genre with little remorse that establishes this 11th instalment to Rock The Houze one of his strongest offerings of late.

In a time where the U.S. has more or less become a dominant part of Electronic Dance Music across the world, the heyday of bleepy Dirty Dutch has rapidly emerged. Founded on a somewhat unique array of bleeps alongside hard-hitting kicks and crisp percussions, the newest offering from Sidney Samson, currently one of the leading figures in Dirty Dutch, comes in a better time than any. Arguably one of his hottest records to date after the still highly rated ‘Riverside’, the David Guetta-supported ‘Get Low’ and it’s stadium-esque approach emerge as the upcoming 11th instalment on his newest record label, Rock The Houze.
‘Get Low’ is released on April 16th via Rock The Houze.
Having pioneered the Dutch house music scene since early 2009 and the release of Riverside – the hit single, utmostly pronounced by a vocal sample of the notorious rapper 2Pac – Sidney Samson has become an icon like no other. Following a 10 months of iconic triumphs, including the launch of his second record label as a subdivision to Spinnin in April, this Netherlands-raised DJ and producer is undisputedly one of the top-tier characters within the squeeky and hard-hitting music genre that is Dutch house. Teaming up with Max C for the underestimated release of Panorama on Azuli, Tara McDonald for Dynamite, putting out his take David Guetta’s Where Them Girls At and now making his eighth appearance on Rock The Houze within merely half a year, 2011 has arguably been a fruitful year for Samson.
Weaving a simple hook and a sweepingly pounding overlayer together with God-like and bumpy drumlines for The Street Is Ours, the first two-single EP out from Rock The Houze might just be the next pair of aces to help the continued rise of Sidney Samson. The package also comes along with the intermittently stupendous Thanks I Get.
