Dwight Rass & Samo are a promising, up and coming DJ-producer duo in the Dutch urban-eclectic scene, based in my own hometown Utrecht. Yesterday they announced a fresh original production to be released this Sunday to celebrate the 2K followers they gathered in less than 2 months on both Soundcloud and Facebook!
Since last year they’ve been building a name in this continuously evolving, vivid Dutch scene, which keeps being both underground and mainstream at the same time. First as DJ duo in the lineups for influential club nights such Latin Riddem, since two months as remixers and now the first original productions are in the making.
Their New Years Pack with afrobeats and dembow bootlegs blew my mind. Just when I had almost given up the Dutch scene altogether, seeming to converge ever more onto the Mad Decent/EDM formula or becoming pure house or pop, Dwight Rass & Samo show again how powerful an accessible mainstream flavoured sound can be that combines styles like dancehall, afrohouse and dance music but maintaining the real vibe of both worlds.
Their remix of Drake’s Hotline Bling is another perfect example, I love that track !
