Samuel André Madsen - Love Like This EP

Samuel’s debut for Tartelet Records is a three-track lesson in diversity.

Using the dingy dive bars and trance-inducing techno clubs of Copenhagen as his playground, Producer/DJ Samuel André Madsen is fast on his way to becoming an internationally recognized exponent of timeless techno and classic, effervescent house. At 24, the tall beat-smith is a fully-fledged member of Copenhagen’s new batch of rising young club stars, and his mission - the dissemination of the distinctive blend of technoid soul, which has come to be his trademark - is winning over an increasingly diverse crowd of music lovers. It’s a sound that draws on the vast expanses of vintage, American dance music, bringing about a growing production catalogue, where hypnotic echoes of Detroit hero Omar S and subtle pulses of Chicago-house weave themselves in and out of the aural tapestry. New and old, tradition and innovation is combined in a stealthy yet soulful balance.

Of course, Samuel’s no stranger to contradictions. The first thing you’ll notice, if you ever get the pleasure of engaging him in conversation, is his nuanced take on life. Coming from a remote and religious part of Jutland where Samuel and his brother would have to shroud their 90s euro-dance listening sessions in the secrecy of their bedroom, and then relocating to the melancholy, concrete wilderness of Copenhagen’s Nordvest (North Western) area at 19, this is no accident; Samuel has explored a considerable part of the Danish socio-cultural spectrum at a tender age - a fact which often reveals itself in his worldly productions, podcasts and DJ sets.
