Sam Demoe is an affable sort of gent , a man of elusive flexibility both behind the decks and in the greater pacific northwest electronic music community. Musically, he’s worn many hats – MC, DJ, producer, promoter – always looking for new creative challenges. He’s held in high regard by selectors on the west coast for his ability to whip any crowd into a frenzy, big room or small - and with his deep knowledge of dance music from hip-hop to house, hybrid-bass to techno and beyond, the needs of more discerning listeners are never neglected. His highly anticipated summer festival DJ mixes are a perfect showcase – good variety, mature pacing, and rock-solid mixing are on display in spades.  

Sam's unique fusion of classic house palettes with emerging techno derivatives sees to it that he's always adding to his toolkit, honing over a decade of experience into an unforgettable night out. Close your eyes, turn up, listen, and be moved.

Sam has had the pleasure for playing with the likes of:  Skream, Bonobo, Zombie Disco Squad, Max Ulis, Nadastrom, Cyril Hahn, Shlohmo, Ryan Hemsworth, and many others.

Sam’s previous festival sets include: Shambhala (2014,2013,2012,2010), Basscoast (2016,2014,2013,2012), WTF (2015) &  Rifflandia (2010-11-12) & Soundwave (2009).
