Sidney Samson (born 2 October 1981) is a Dutch DJ. Samson started DJing at the age of 13, focusing on hip hop music before working seriously on house music from 1999.[1][2] He is a resident DJ at The Matrixx, a major Dutch nightclub and released "Bring That Beat Back" and "It’s All Funked Up" on the digidance and Spinnin' Records labels respectively.[2][3] After collaborating with Gregor Salto, he formed his own record label, Samsobeats, in 2007.

Samson managed to get his debut single "Riverside" to #1 on the Dutch Top 40,[4] #9 on the Australian ARIA Charts,[5] #2 on the Irish Singles Chart, and #2 on the UK Singles Chart.[6]

He released his second single "Shut Up and Let It Go" with Lady Bee in February 2010.[2]

In 2011 Sidney Samson collaborated with the UK singer/songwriter Tara McDonald releasing "Set Me On Fire" through Spinnin Records, followed by "Dynamite" which was released through his own label Rock the Houze with Spinnin Records remixed by Nicky Romero.

Samson frequently collaborates with top industry influencers and has worked on hit tracks, including "Get Outta My Way" by Kylie Minogue, "Gettin' Over You" by David Guetta, "Commander" by Kelly Rowland, "Hello" by Martin Solveig and "Hip Hop" by dead Prez. After touring with LMFAO last summer, Sidney is back in the studio, working hard to put out new tracks for his fans. His recent hits include "Change Your Life" with Far East Movement and Flo Rida, and "Better than Yesterday" with will.i.am. He is also playing at shows around the US, including his huge residency at The Wynn clubs in Las Vegas.[citation needed]

On 14 July 2014 Sidney Samson married Eva Simons, a Dutch singer-songwriter. The two have been engaged for about six months and have also collaborated on a track called "Celebrate the Rain".
