One of the names on everyone’s lips right now is that of Samantha Nicole. The grit-andguts Cubao native has been playing at all the metro’s top electronic music establishments from TIME in Manila, XX XX and Black Market, to being part of the UNKNWN and subMNL series and tearing up Area 51 in Boracay and the renowned Malasimbo Music & Arts Festival, that has brought the likes of San Soda, Goldie, Onra, Lapalux, FKJ, and more.
A resident DJ at XX XX, Samantha can also be defined as a true homegrown talent, tracing her roots to Today x Future – an infamous dive bar in Cubao that shaped her musical taste and talent, being exposed to multi-faceted music. Her sound flows between house, funk, bass, techno and also dips into electro, world, indie and disco flavours, but one key trait is what makes you recognise Samantha is on the decks – it’s jacking. No matter what track she is playing the thumping kick drum keeps all the dancers moving.
She has been billed with the likes of Bicep, Milton Bradley, Jacques Greene, Busy P, Darius, Francis Inferno Orchestra, Francesca Lombardo, FJAAK, Stefan Goldman, Eric Volta, to name a few. She also co-hosts Tektonik: a monthly night dedicated to noncommercial
dance music. She is scheduled to make her debut performance in STUDIO, Hong Kong on February 2017.
