Rising to prominence on Rinse FM and ruling for a decade at Kiss FM, Logan Sama has been at the forefront of presenting the best grime has to offer since the genre’s inception, lending a helping hand to the careers of such names as Wiley, Dizzee Rascal, Tinie Tempah, Wretch 32, Skepta, Ghetts, Jme, P Money, Preditah and many hundreds more.
Early DJ inspirations EZ, Karl Brown, Mike Lloyd and Fonti saw him gravitate from Brentwood, Essex to the capital with a growing obsession with the experimental productions of Oris Jay, Zinc, Zed Bias, Wookie, Steve Gurley and Groove Chronicles transitioning into the earliest appearances of grime. His notoriety on the grime-centric Uptown Records web forum caught the attention of Dugs and Slimzee on Rinse who granted him a prime time slot before Roll Deep on the then pirate station. Stationed alongside legends like EZ, Rodigan, Hype and Hatcha, his celebrated Kiss show broadcast to a dedicated audience, his final show in 2014 witnessed the crème de la crème of grime dropping in to pay due respect. Logan Sama has been a fabric regular over the years, from Run The Road to Playaz nights in room 2, Tropical and Butterz Room 1 takeovers and any number of FABRICLIVE events.
"Vinyl has always been an important part of grime history. It gave us the power to get our music out to the public without having to be tied in to the mainstream music industry. Being able to make our own music and then press it up directly onto vinyl was so pivotal to the growth of grime for many reasons. When I was a teenager growing up and getting into DJing something like this would have been exactly what I wanted, it’s great to be able to give people a package like this." Logan Sama
