Uplifting’ is without a doubt the word that best describes Dutch DJ, producer, platinum selling artist and sustainability pioneer, Sam Feldt. Having built a career upon his distinctly feel-good sound, Sam already has a double album and a multitude of top-selling releases under his belt. Besides his musical activities he has developed a platform – Fangage – for artists to connect with their fans better. His next project is to spearhead a movement that will help influencers adopt a more sustainable lifestyle, giving back to the planet to reduce and compensate their own environmental impact and encouraging others to do the same. Both in music and life, Sam has his sights set firmly on the future.
The story of Sam Feldt begins at a very young age, some twenty years ago. His father being a musician and his mother an avid festival-goer, barely a minute of Sam’s early life went by without music in the background. Whether it was his dad singing and writing songs or the latest records being played, Sam was amply inspired, and he soon signed up for music lessons. The youngster was more interested in creating his own tunes than playing the songs the curriculum prescribed, however, and before long, Sam’s keyboards teacher was showing him the basics of production. Just a hobby during his early teens, his production efforts turned serious after a half-year-long internship on the Caribbean island of Curaçao introduced him to the tropical house sound. After adopting the ‘Feldt’ moniker, Sam was signed to Spinnin’ Records and burst onto the international scene.
