From the Promoter


Sammy Senior introduced himself properly to the bass music scene in Canada with his 2015 tour, which concluded with him headlining his first Canadian festival "Fozzyfest" in British Columbia.
Known for his personal production and quickly becoming a favourite for his energetic DJ sets, it is obvious that Sammy draws his influences from a vast array of musical styles, his sets are always full of fresh material and personal edits, all driven by big basslines and booty shaking grooves.

Originally from New Zealand, Sammy has spent the last decade travelling the world, spending the early years of his music career in Europe.
He has already played at some of the UK's favourite festivals including Glastonbury, Boomtown, Sunrise, Shindig, Eden, Shambhala UK and many more, sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in the bass culture scene. It doesn't stop there though, Sammy has also played at festivals and clubs all over the world, including Canada, New Zealand, France, Switzerland, Mexico, and so many more.
Now residing in Baja, Mexico, Sammy plans to be focus his attention on Canada and the ever growing west coast bass music scene in North America.




Reviews and releases






Adriana & Frank are a married couple originally from Colombia, who made Canada their home. Influenced by latin percussions and Canadian basslines, their sets can include moombahton, jungle terror, trap, reggae, different types of house music and anything that spurs that primal desire to twerk, jump and grind. When MonkeyTwerk is on the decks, you are set for an experience that shuts off the brain and allows the music to take over your body, making you forget that time is actually passing by.

With several Music Festivals under their belt, and as Blueprint Residents in Edmonton Alberta, MonkeyTwerk has opened for several artists, demonstrating every time with very happy audiences, that their show doesn’t depend on any specific genre, and the party always happens wherever they are.
