Sample Market “Original Series” continues to bring you unique sample libraries from artists around the world. Each custom-curated exclusive sample pack will focus on the signature sound of some of your favourite producers. This edition comes straight from PIV head-honcho Chris Stussy's studio to help give you some isolation inspiration!
Following up his breakthrough in real quick time with some head-turning house tracks, Chris Stussy has continued to back his early promises with steady essential releases. He is now very much a key part of the underground scene with his unique sound that taken him to essential labels like Djebali, Rutilance, Eastenderz, Meta and his very own PIV, where he is also in charge of spotting new talent for the label. 2020 will see music dropping on Moscow and Fuse and an official remix for the one and only Kerri Chandler!
A few short years after breaking through, on the back of a series of huge house tracks, Dutchman Chris Stussy is now a growing part of the global underground scene. Always leading the way and heading into new musical territory, he has built on early successes with a steady stream of essential new releases with each one bringing something fresh to the dance floor via influential labels like Djebali and Phil Weeks’s Robsoul. Inspired by the likes of Kerri Chandler, raw Chicago grooves and well-schooled in the classics, Stussy uses this knowledge to head into the future and perfect his own take on the genre, while drawing on disco and the jazz of his youth to lend his music its extra special and standout sense of character.
All of this understanding also colours his work in the DJ booth of key clubs and festivals around the world. From Awakenings to the mainstage of Welcome to the Future, via Watergate in Berlin, Rex Club in Paris and Mysteryland with Carl Cox and Jamie Jones, plus various other gigs around the UK, Ibiza and Hungary. He can seamlessly switch up his sound to suit the moment and is as comfortable on the scene’s huge mainstages as he is in intimate and personal clubs.
The Dutch prodigy has a long-standing love of early house music, but also raw production aesthetics and an understanding of Jazz, Disco and Chicago styles that feed into his own unique take on the genre. As such, his sublime and late-night house tunes often come with a musical baseline that is superbly slick and supple. Smart vocal samples, lush synth colours and bumping drums then add to the allure of most seductive and warm grooves.
