Samantha Togni X Deer Brains
Introduce yourself, who are you and what do you do?
I’m Samantha, I am an Italian EDM DJ and Producer based in London.
If you were to sum your style up in five words what would they be?
Unpredictable, eclectic, bassy, restrictionless and solid!
Where can we catch you playing in the near future?
This week I’m busy with London fashion week parties, I will be playing for the Underground Shoes party and then at the afterparty of TZUJI on Saturday.
Alongside these appearances, you also run your own night, Church of Dreams, can
you tell us more?
Church Of Dreams is a club night that I run at Zigfrid Von Underbelly in Hoxton. Hoxton Square has always been hosting incredible parties and Zigfrid feels like home, I feel really blessed to be able to play and organise my night there once a month. Church Of Dreams is also much more than just a club night, it started as a series of mixtapes and now it’s starting to develop into more projects including a clothing range.
You recently remixed Elle & Blake’s track “Prisma” will we be seeing more of this from you?
Releasing Prisma for Eclectic Records has been great and recently it has been aired on Shoreditch Radio. Listening to your song for the first time on the radio is pretty awesome!
I am currently working on my EP that will be out in Spring 2016, it will represent myself fully and I cannot wait for people to listen to it.
Is there anybody that you would love to work with in the future?
What were the last three songs you listened to?
Cavalier – Masks
Giraffage – Be With You
Cashmere Cat & DJ Mustard – Ice Rink
Tell us about the mix you’ve made for us? Any belters in particular that you love?
I have tried to squeeze what I play in a night out into 15 minutes, as well as what I listen to and take inspiration from. I really enjoy the way it floats and hope you do too.
You also DJ over in Italy, how is the crowd over there? Any parties you can recommend, if ever I make it to Italy!
Italian people know how to party and they do it pretty well. My top recommendations are Touch The Wood in Rome and Popstarz in Milan where I have played few times and always had a really memorable time.
…and what’s next for Samantha Togni?
I am investing all my spare time in the production of my debut EP and the shooting of the music video. As well as that there will be more collaboration with international brands that I can’t wait to reveal.
