Sam Cameron's Blog #1: Electronic Music & Marbella's Nightlife17-02-2012
Hi all and welcome to my blog! A blog where I'll be featuring everything to do with Electronic Music and Marbella's Nightlife.
I will be bringing you interviews with local, national, and international artists, giving you a view of my personal musical taste, along with some of my own 'Free Download' mixtapes, my recommended "Tune of the Week", and some Guestmixes from local DJs & Producers.
For the past 12 Seasons, Marbella has enjoyed visits from International DJs such as David Guetta, Tiesto, and Armin Van Buuren to Marbella's Legendary Night Club, Dreamers.
Last Summer, Stockholm-based company BIGSTAGE, delighted us with new faces at Dreamers Marbella such as Avicii, Kaskade, AN21, Max Vangeli, Norman Doray, Funkagenda, and Adrian Lux, who completely teared the club apart on their Marbella debuts! Legends David Guetta, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, Fedde Le Grand, and Roger Sanchez also came to do what they do best!
But this past season it wasn't just Dreamers who thrilled us with International House Music Artists. Olivia Valére surprised everybody with Bob Sinclar & David Vendetta, Karbon Klub in Fuengirola hosted Spanish Superstar Wally Lopez, and Nikki Beach Marbella gave us what I personally hope will not be the last daytime party with an International House Music Artist; my English favorite DJ Mark Knight, who got on a plane directly from his record label's 5th anniversary party (Toolroom Knights at the Brixton Academy, London) and closed the Summer for Nikki Beach!
I also have to mention the Urban RnB & Hip Hop artists who played here last Summer. A trend my friends Phil Savage & Chusky González started at Funky Buddha Marbella in 2010 with an incredible party featuring Pharrell Williams and his group N.E.R.D.!
The success of these parties grabbed the attention of other promoters (myself included), and as a result the summer enjoyed more artists in Marbella such as 50 Cent who made an appearance at Funky Buddha. Fat Joe & Big Boy (Outkast) also got to rock Dreamers Marbella. Sisu Boutique Hotel brought us major live acts such as Tinie Tempah & Flo Rida, who also made a special guest appearance the night after his solo show with David Guetta! Which, according to many, was the #1 party this Summer.
Karbon Klub Fuengirola are establishing themselves as a real contender to be considered one of the Top Nightclubs in the Costa del Sol, and they revealed their intentions with some smaller but very well known urban artists such as Jeremih & Aggros Santos.
TIBU Banús was the venue of the famous Hed Kandi parties and finally, I can't end this blog without mentioning Ocean Club Marbella, who with their Opening, Closing, and monthly Champagne Parties, simply paralyzed the whole of the Costa, and possibly attracted more tourists than any other weekend in the Summer! Will Ocean Club delight us with a Superstar DJ sometime soon? I think we would all LOVE that!
This week was simply about welcoming my Blog and giving a little resume of what happened here last Summer. I will be speaking about upcoming events, what the Summer is looking like, and I will also give my critics about the musical industry.
It's time for "Tune of the Week", and it had to be possibly my favorite House song "Circles" remixed by possibly my favorite artist/producer, Eric Prydz. Please enjoy the official video below.
As a FREE Mixtape this week It couldn't be anything else but a Guestmix from my teenage friends Wallem Brothers, originally from Aalborg (Denmark) but raised in Marbella, just like me. This mixtape was recorded on December 16th for Danish Radio Show "The Voice". It will be my turn next week. Click download at the following link:
Finally, I would like to invite you all this Saturday to Room 101 Banús (behind Tibu) where I will be spinnin' some fine House Music alongside resident DJ Steeven Mania!
Thank you for taking your time to read my 1st Blog, and I hope you do so next Friday too!

Mark Knight was amazing!!!! loved it!
Sam . . . well done! Proud of you!
interesting blog,we are promotors & will be putting on some very good acts this year,look out for DEKORUM & join our Facebook page
Thanks for your comments. This Summer I hope we can pull out a schedule like we did last Summer. It was a lot of work and stress, but I would sign another 30 years of doing it! I also hope we can make some daytime parties in July & August! They're the main focus in places like Ibiza, Miami & Las Vegas! I think Marbella is in need of them! However Big Summer Deejays at Dreamers will never die!
