Born and raised on the mean streets of Whittier California, DJ Sammy, AKA Sammy Saure, started his musical journey when he was 18, when he was given a musical instrument by the Whittier California branch of Woolworths. It was at this moment that Sammy Saure knew he wanted to be part of 'The Scene'. He first became interested in the electronic music scene in 1994. In 1990, aged 14, his Mum and Dad bought him his first set of turntables. At the age of 17, he was already being touted as Whittier California's answer to DJ Hype. He did various warm up sets before the doors opened in clubs hosting major names such as DJ Hype, DJ Storm, and many more. In 1995, he achieved his big break when he DJ Sammy realized he was big in the game. It was after this point when he started getting gigs at big events such as Kaiser Permanente Christmas Bash and Stanton Hotel Night club. After receiving several offers, DJ Sammy joined Recordings, who helped distribute his first internet release, '' in 1996. Though the single didn't sell as many as he probably would have liked, DJ Sammy is a fighter and since 2015 has been locked in the studio perfecting his craft. Suffice to say, the Drum and Bass scene should be expecting big things from DJ Sammy in 2016.
