Sam Redmore & The Tropical Soundclash Allstars


Producer and artist Sam Redmore is shaping a career as one of the UK’s most exciting new talents. His path has seen him evolve from club DJ and promoter, to remixer responsible for a host of masterly edits, to lighting up airwaves and stages from London to LA with his original productions and killer live shows.

His knowledge of global, eclectic sounds – shaped when following the movements of the likes of Gilles Peterson, Quantic, Louie Vega and Mr Scruff – set up his 2022 debut album Universal Vibrations as a feast for those who wished to dance to a different beat.

His succinct summary that the album represents “music for dancefloors inspired by music from all over”, means no reveller is going home disappointed.

Success was almost instantaneous – Nagu, an instrumental track from his debut 7” release, was played on BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Radio 2, Jazz FM and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM on the same weekend!  A supremely rare cross cultural appeal and unheard of for an instrumental latin dancefloor tune. Nagu has since gone on to be a mainstay of daytime BBC 6 Music, getting played almost every week since release.

Radio stations around the world followed suit, with LA tastemaker KCRW one of the first to get on board hammering Tears, Sam’s cumbia cover of the Giorgio Moroder classic. Meanwhile, French tastemaker station FIP has been consistently supporting Sam throughout. When the album dropped in September 2022 it was immediately given the prestigious Album of the Week accolade at Jazz FM, rounding off an extremely successful campaign that included BBC 6 Music guest mixes for Craig Charles , Huey Morgan, Afrodeutsche and Cerys Matthews – an incredible spread of support.

Sam came up on the scene in the UK West Midlands and the cultural mix of the area is still a massive source of creativity for him. His records and live band showcase Birmingham’s best new vocal talent, with guests Lumi HD, SANITY and Mr Auden Allen all involved. His energetic live show has seen Sam and his live band The Tropical Soundclash Allstars become a festival mainstay, with appearances at Mostly Jazz, Wilderness, Boom Town, Shindig, Green Man, Kendal Calling, Camp Bestival and Shambala earning rave reviews.

2024 will see Sam unleash his second album – Modulate, from which the first single Glow has already picked up strong BBC 6 Music support.
