Sam Feldt is surely a force to be reckon with in the EDM industry. Over the years, the music producer has made a name for himself via his spectacular music and he continues to amaze fans with what he creates in the studio. A few months ago, Sam hit a bump on the road, after he was involved in a scooter accident, but thankfully he is recovering and is now back better than ever!
He’s recently released a single in collaboration with Jeremy Renner and due to this, we’ve had the chance to have a little chat with the young producer. So, if you’re curious to know more about the track or about what he has in store for the rest of the year, check out our interview below!
- Hello, Sam. How have you been lately?
I’m great, finally getting back to work again. ADE is coming up, just released my latest single: Heaven (Don’t Have A Name) featuring famous Hollywood actor Jeremy on the vocals and I’m slowly but surely getting fully back on track after my scooter accident that happened late June that saw me break my leg, so this are getting much better.
- First of all, we just want to say that we’re glad that you are OK after what happened to you this past summer! How are things going for you after the accident?
Like I said, I’m doing much better now. Though, it was an unfortunate event and it really messed up my schedule, it did give me plenty of time to work on my music. I think it could have been a lot worse, so I’m just happy to be okay. Now I’m getting back to work again, finally. Lots of things happening and this week we’ve got Amsterdam Dance Event taking place in my hometown!
- You’ve just released an amazing single with Jeremy Renner. Tell us more about it! How did the collaboration with Jeremy came to be?
Through my publisher, actually. I was working on this track when I heard Jeremy Renner could sing and he was interested in collabing with me. We got in touch and after he recorded the vocals in LA we sent versions back and forth until we were both satisfied.
- The track has quite a beautiful name. Give us more details about the meaning behind it!
The lyrics were written by Jeremy and his team, so for the exact meaning behind them you will have to ask him! I like the mystery!
- Aside from this track, do you have more new music ready to be released this year?
Yes, one more BIG release coming before end of the year!
- Considering that Amsterdam Dance Event is upon us, tell us what do you have in store for us for this year?
I hosted my own exclusive intimate evening with 200 of my biggest fanson the 17th of October. The whole event was truly special. The venue is amazing, and the vibe was great! This was my way to give something back to the fans that have supported all this time.
Apart from this event, I will be doing two panels centered around sustainability for ADE Green. This is something I will be focusing on in the future. So, make sure to check that out!
- Also, we must ask ☺who do you think will be in the top 5 this year in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs Poll?
Avicii, Martin Garrix, Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, Tiesto
- We have one final question. With the end of the year getting closer and closer, what’s the one thing you’re proudest of in 2018 so far?
Overcoming my scooter accident and getting back on the road!
- Thank you for your time!
You’re welcome guys! Talk to you soon!
