Genre: Techno, Electronica
Country of Origin: New Zealand
Sam Hill is regarded as one of Auckland's top DJs, and has played alongside the best in the world. Sam began listening to the SugarHill Gang, Afrika Bambaataa and Parliament, then having spent a handful of formative, pre-house years, soaking up the rhythms of hip-hop funk and electro in the mid 80s, moved onto the the ever evolving electronic music scene.
Sam was already a committed DJ when house music exploded in the UK in the late eighties. Before long he was playing at warehouse parties and began to see the potential for electronic music to become part of New Zealand Youth culture.
His salacious, anarchic DJing style has always inspired a keen following. He moved into the music production field in 2006, and is non-stop in the studio producing his new fresh sound to unleash on the dancefloors in 2007. Sam Hill’s DJ skills are also increasingly in demand both in NZ and Australia where his trademark sound always goes down a storm.
