Returning to the capital after her summer debut, renowned DJ and techno instigator SAMA’ has teamed up with Marsm to curate a late-night takeover at Electowerkz. For this event, SAMA’ will be featuring and playing with her top picks from the Middle Eastern and international electronic music scenes.
Sama’ (aka. Skywalker) is the DJ and electronic music producer from Palestine playing techno, house, and other deeper sub-genres with a unique twist of her own. Her Boiler Room debut in 2018 has racked up over 1.5MIL views as she continues to solidify her imprint on the European and Middle Eastern electronic music scene.
In Sama’s own words, “There’s only one man in my life who never disappoints me, and I believe he’s done better than most big names: Jason Kaakoush” (Mixmag Turkey). His unique global sound and unparalleled selection has led to him being Sama’s favourite DJ. Jason is currently cementing his name in the global scene by releasing chart topping music including his latest release on Moan Recordings.
