Leading the charge in Scotland’s’ world dance music scene, Samson Sounds create the energy for a positive dancefloor vibration. Guitar strings, brass, vocals and digital align to form new audio experiences of World Bass music. Combining live and electronic elements they blend afro, reggae, dance and trad with a dubby cohesiveness. Inspired by African Highlife and Blues, Dub, UK Steppas, Kwaito and Jazz, they leave no-one behind.
Hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, the group have made a firm impression on the northern UK scene both hosting their own events and playing across a wide range of venues and festivals. Characterised by their uplifting stage presence with Owen Docherty on vocals, Duncan Mark Horne on sax, Roger Marsh on trombone and William Greensmith on guitar, with Anders Rigg taking care of production. Originating from the homemade dubwise Samson Soundsystem they are no strangers to bassweight and can deliver a good time guarantee at any venue.
They’ve just released a new EP, Jumbo Rush, featuring guest vocalists, Longfingah (GER), Breezy Lee (UK), Bee (UK) and Oz Mandias (UK). The EP brings in fresh talent to mix up styles with a classic Samson twist and the World Ceilidh will be one of the first opportunities to hear their new tunes!
