With his latest EP out now on Umek's 1605 Music Therapy, Atlanta technohead Sam Wolfe does us a mix
In our Making Waves series we give rising stars of the scene a chance to show us what they do best. Today it's the turn of Atlanta techno producer Sam Wolfe, who made his debut with the Triangulum EP on Spanish label Reload just last year, and has since clocked up releases on other well-respected techno imprints including Tronic, T-Minus, Senso Sounds and, most recently, Umek’s 1605 Music Therapy

Location: Atlanta Georgia
Describe the music you make in 20 words or less: Bangin’ club music, weapons for any DJ, made for a big stage in a dark warehouse.
Five key influences: Umek, Eric Prydz, Boris Brejcha, Passenger 10, Virtual Riot
What one artist/producer would you most like to work with, and why? So many, but I would love to work with Kanye West just to learn what's going on inside of his head and try to apply all of that unique insanity to techno. I've found music is less about genres and more about mindset that really sets any artist/producer apart.
If people check out just ONE of your tracks, what should it be? 7AM – it sums up all of the noises in my head.
What else do iDJ readers need to know? I'm just a normal guy who's been going to shows and festivals since 2009. I got to a point in DJing where I knew I needed to express myself and take the passion to the next level. From there I went all in on production and just love making music I would want to hear at a club or festival.
That being said I really enjoy giving back, in the way of mixdown critiques and production feedback so feel free to reach out on Instagram DMs if you're a producer and I’ll almost always respond and have a conversation.
