London-born Sam Cassman, aka Lorca, borrows his name from the houseboat he grew up on. His deeply textural sound is layered with huge kicks, snares, and claps, as well as a thought-out melody, and built to fill even the biggest room. You can tell that Sam has a deeply-ingrained love for dance music because of his energetic approach to creating it. He knows the pulse of the scene, spending time on the bill at Brighton clubs Patterns and Life, London's Fabric, and Berlin's Berghain. Entrenched in the underground scene, he knows exactly when to sooth and when to surge. The city itself remains a constant inspiration and his diverse supporters range from Ben Ufo to Pete Tong.
