Sassmouth

Sassmouth settled in Chicago from San Francisco via New York City in 2000 where she rapidly reoriented her life to the weekly rhythm of electronic dance music culture. Using her musical training and diverse experience performing live as both a member of string quartets and punk bands, she aggressively attacked the techno question throughout the first decade of the millennium. Sam’s DJ sets reflect her love of dialectics -- a tribute to her early explorations into musical yin and yang. Stripped down sounds mutate into jacking funky house, punchy techno, and deepl sub bass lines and melodies.

Sassmouth found a musical kinship with like-minded Chilean artists while living in Santiago. She continues to return to her past residence to perform at the techno centre, La Feria. Upon returning to Chicago, Samantha performed regularly throughout the U.S., promoted a variety of underground and club events in her home town, and built a friendly and supportive online home for the electronic dance music community with her website naughtybadfun.org. Sam also continues her standard commute to beloved Detroit where she gained great inspiration and experience playing at club events and the Detroit Electronic Music Festival. Sam, now working out of her creative base in London, regularly contributes original tracks and remixes to projects for the Detroit-based label Hej Records while continuing to play dates in Europe and the Americas - most often at Smartbar, the Chicago dance music institution where she enjoys her newest residency.
