Sam Redmore & The Tropical Soundclash Allstars

Producer and artist Sam Redmore is shaping a career as one of the UK’s most exciting new talents.
His path has seen him evolve from club DJ and promoter, to remixer responsible for a host of killer
edits, to lighting up airwaves and stages from London to LA with his original productions.
His knowledge of global, eclectic sounds – shaped when following the movements of the likes of
Gilles Peterson, Quantic, Louie Vega and Mr Scruff – sets up his 2022 debut album Universal
Vibrations as a feast for those who want to dance to a different beat.

Redmore may be the new boy on the Jalapeno Records block, but with credit from Craig Charles,
Quantic, Nightmares on Wax and Danny Krivit already in the bank he is perfectly placed to uphold
the label’s ethos. His succinct summary that the album represents “music for dancefloors inspired by
music from all over”, means no reveller is going home disappointed.

Success has been almost instantaneous – Nagu, an instrumental track from his debut 7” release, was
played on BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Radio 2, Jazz FM and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM on the same
weekend! A supremely rare cross cultural appeal and unheard of for an instrumental latin dancefloor
tune. Nagu has since gone on to be a mainstay of daytime BBC 6 Music, getting played almost every
week since release.

Radio stations around the world are following suit with LA tastemaker KCRW one of the first to get on
board and hammering Tears, Sam’s cumbia cover of the Giorgio Moroder classic, whilst French
tastemaker station FIP have been consistently supporting On The One amongst Sam’s other single

Sam came up on the scene in the UK Midlands and the cultural mix of the area is still a massive
source of creativity for him. The album showcases Birmingham’s best new vocal talent, with guests
Lumi HD, SANITY and Mr Auden Allen all featuring.

So which genre does Sam Redmore occupy? “It’s difficult to say really – I just take inspiration from
anything I like the sound of and try to put it all together in a way that makes sense”. Check his
current appetite for disco, afrobeat, broken beat and Latin styles such as cumbia and samba. What
works on the dancefloor then filters down into Sam’s productions and remixes.

Not many artists stage their debut live performance on the Saturday main stage of a major festival
but that’s exactly what the promoters of Birmingham’s Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival were
confident enough to book in 2021. Whether leading a 12-piece live ensemble or DJing from festivals
to basement jams, Sam remains at heart a crowd rocker.

2022 has seen Sam’s live bookings explode with Boomtown, Wilderness, Green Man and Kendal
Calling amongst the major UK festivals booking his live act before his album has even been released.
The album Universal Vibrations is out September 9th and will be followed by a UK and European
tour at the end of the year.

Sam Redmore is available as both the live band, and as a solo DJ performance, please get in touch if you would like to discuss either, with
