With a career in electronic music spanning now two decades, Sammy Dee has built and solidied a reputation for himself as an innovator of eclectic, off kilter sounds. He began to DJ in Kassel in the late eighties, soon after which he moved back to his hometown of Berlin, hosting residencies at such clubs as Tresor/Globus and Ostgut. A particular night, which made Ostgut's Panorama bar famous, and which still continues to a packed house, is "...get perlonized." Arguably, one of the most consistently successful club nights in Europe.
Organized together with Pantytec production partner and Perlon label co founder Zip, they put together a showcase for the unique sounds of Perlon that would unknowingly inuence many worldwide. Complementing Sammy's unique blend of stripped down house and techno sets have always proved to be one of the foundations of the night. When Sammy is on the decks there is no doubt that he is recognized as one of the key veterans and icons of the electronic music scene. Working together with Bruno Pronsato, the man being described in this biographical text gave birth to Half Hawaii in 2006.
To date, three physical liaison results have been manifctured on Perlon, hello?repeat and Diamonds & Pearls. Sammy Dee's youngest child is named Ultrastretch. Titled after the PERLON68-B-side and not to be confused with his regular party series at Berlin based Weekend club, Sammy founded Ultrastretch at the end of 2010 with a collective of like-minded musicians and cultivated artists who were ready to walk with him on his underground community based path into a non-genre-focussed and crossbenched/forthright future.
Release #1 was realized in January 2011 with Matthew Burton's 'Who Loves You/Small Winner'. Currently on the production side, a new solo project is crystallizing. A departure from his co-productions, you will just have to keep your ears tuned.
