Poppa big Wheels- peeling cats since 03.
Sammy aka big wheels had an early introduction to psychedelic music, growing up on the north coast NSW. Began to fiddle with sequencers at around 13. Purchased some cdj’s when he was 15 and spent the next few years pefecting his skills. After playing around and helping out with a few small parties around the bellingen/coffs harbour region was offered an oppurtunity in 07 by a now very close freind to come to melbourne and play at a couple of local gatherings (spiral harmonics and acollectivefuture). Feeling like he had found his 2nd family decided never to leave! Around this time he was beginning to grow tired of playing other peoples tunes and wanted to express his own creativity so sold he sold his decks and embarked on the never ending journey of music production. After 3 years he is now feeling like its time to get it out there. At the moment am continuing to use dj skills representing SOLAR records playing part his own tunes and part DJ but in the near future intends to be playing 100% original live sets as well as DJ sets. He used to play funky melodic progressive but after living in melbourne has adopted a love for minimal techno / tech house and is incorporating influences from all of these areas aiming for something a little different. Influences include Minilogue, Tetrameth, Sensient, Tristan Boyle, Krumelur, gaiser, Trentemoller, pink floyd, tool and basically anything psychedelic an of the slower tempo.
