EXCLUSIVE ONE ON ONE INTERVIEW WITH SAM SERENE
So how did it all begin?
My older brother was heavily into house so I was exposed to it at an early age. It was much less accessible at the time. It was like nothing I'd ever heard before and found house music so cool and exiting. I started collecting records shortly after.
What was the first club you ever played at?
I played at dozens of raves and smaller parties but the first bigger club would have to be Kink at the Arthouse or Together at Home.
Out of all the music you have what track never fails?
I believe every track I buy serves a purpose. They are all tools and I use them accordingly forever finding different ways they work and react together "the right Kontrast ;)" I'd like to think that I only ever drop tracks that are going to work. That's never failed me.
What's your favourite track of all time?
Too many to mention! So much music being made by so many talented producers. Now more than ever!
Funniest thing that's ever happened to you while djing?
That would have to be taking the record of the rong deck playing to a packed moulin rouge, as you could expect the music stopped for what would have to have been the longest 45 seconds of my life. Boy was my face red!
Djs you rate?
Jay not so Smalls
Sydney is awesome.
How is the scene at the moment?
This is the most exciting time for Techno in Sydney. Considering we're in one of sydneys longest and coldest winters. Very strong! Lots of new exciting things happening in and about town and heaps of cool people getting out there and supporting these parties week after week!
When the partying is over how do you like to chill out?
Watching chick flicks with my lover x x x.
What advice would you give any up and comming dj?
Get out there and support the djs you enjoy and nights you want to play at. Stay right away from discussion boards (nothing cool about being a music nerd) Try find a unique style or sound that is unique to you and speak with your feet!
