Beginning in the mid-2010s, Amsterdam’s Sam Feldt earned attention in Europe and worldwide for his melodic house remixes, mixtapes, and collaborations.
A prolific producer and DJ, his breakthrough was a 2015 cover of Robin S.’s “Show Me Love” that charted widely around Europe. Over the coming years, he built up an extensive catalog, landing another major hit with 2019’s “Post Malone” from his Magnets EP. His success carried into the next decade with tracks like 2021’s “Follow Me” with Rita Ora and 2022’s “Hate Me” featuring Salem Ilese.
Feldt’s early releases included 2014’s “Bloesem” with De Hofnar and “Hot Skin” with Kav Verhouzer on the Dutch label Spinnin’ Records. After a series of live shows in Europe, which he built over time to contain mostly his own productions, he toured North America for the first time in early 2015.
“Midnight Hearts” with the Him and featuring ANG13 followed soon after, and that spring, Feldt signed with Universal Music for the worldwide release of his song “Show Me Love” featuring English vocalist Kimberly Anne. It charted throughout Western Europe, hitting the Top Five in the U.K., as well as landing on the dance and streaming charts in the U.S. By the end of 2015, he’d performed on five continents.
