Samwas is an electronic music producer and DJ currently residing between Philadelphia, PA and Atlantic City, NJ that has been at the forefront of the underground electronic music scene in that area. As a resident DJ of two of Atlantic City's most influential and longest running underground electronic events, Gridwork and FML Thursdays, Samwas has undoubtedly been one of the most passionate pushers of the deepest and most innovative sonic landscapes to grace that city yet. Samwas was nominated, voted for by the people, and awarded "Best Area DJ" in the 2014 (and now again in 2015!) Elephant Talk Indie Music Awards in Atlantic City.
In 2015 Samwas was brought on as a featured artist at the inaugural Farrest Grove Music Festival & Campout at Paradise Lakes, located deep in the NJ Pine Barrens. His production team, Gridwork, was hired to curate the main stage’s late night electronic music lineup.
Samwas has released original productions independently as well as on several labels based throughout Philadelphia. Some of his tracks have also been included on compilation albums from Funkadelphia Recordings, Aspire Higher, and Psy.Fi Productions.
As well as performing live and DJing across Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia, Samwas continues to show himself as a highly productive and creative music producer and event organizer who thinks globally and acts locally with dedication. This is why he is always a crowd-favorite. His passion and commitment to the people shine through in his every action.
Samwas is also proficient with graphic design and works on projects such as event flyers, brochures, logo designs, & branding when he is not focused on musical endeavors.
