Flatfoot Sam has been dabbling in the intricacies of music production ever since taking an interest in the Dance music from 18 years old. His career began taking traction after the release of multiple vinyl hits in the early ‘90s, which distinguished his love for the dance music industry and cemented his image in the scene. Flatfoot Sam’s style and productions always carry huge emotion considering he has always been beguiled by the beauty and emotion conveyed through dance music. As a lover of all genres with inspiration taken from the likes of Carl Cox, Weatherall, The Prodigy, Flatfoot Sam’s production provides a sound and vibe like no other.
What other hobbies do you usually get up to or would like to try?
I like running and sport, track days, watching & attending F1 events, and reading a book on a beach is pretty perfect. Lazy Sundays with a roast. Probably beef.
Where is your favorite place to go for food?
there are a few Argentinian steak houses in London called Gaucho – they are serious business if you’re into steak. There is also a local burrito bar called Mexigo – love their stuff.
What can always put you in a good mood no matter what?
Ice cold bottle of Peroni normally does the trick accompanied by some banging dance music.
Do you have a favorite sports team? If so, who?
I actually love playing Volleyball – I got a net last year and make the family play every time we have a gathering. It gets a bit competitive. On holiday on a beach is best.
How would you describe your perfect weekend?
A nice chilled Friday night after work, a decent meal and a few beers, maybe a film. Saturday get all the chores out of the way and then have a banger, in or out Saturday late afternoon/evening. Sunday chilled roast and watch F1.
If you could invite x3 people to dinner, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
Michael Evis the organizer of Glastonbury because I reckon he’s seen a thing or two. Paul Oakenfold because he’s been around for the whole dance music journey and Nelson Mandela because he was an interesting guy with a lot of humility.
If you could start over, what career would you love to have?
(other than music) – F1 racing driver, no doubt.
Who would you love to trade lives with for a day?
Anyone playing the main stage at Tomorrowland – 2hr set please at peak time.
Do you have any weird traditions or superstitions?
if I think of something bad that might happen, I then stop myself even considering that again or I tell myself it will happen, so I basically end up ignoring it, even if it flicks into my mind for a second it gets booted out again. Bit like when you avoided treading on the gaps in paving slabs when you were a kid or the bears would get you. Like an adult version of that maybe.
Lastly, what one thing would you take with you to a desert island?
I’d better say the girlfriend, hadn’t I? Perhaps she could have a small laptop with a copy of Ableton on it in her handbag though (“,) Did I mention the next single R3lease is out 1st September? I did? Ah, good.
