Spotlight S.A.M., Sarah Ikumu Defected

Denmark’s very own breakthrough producer, DJ and label manager S.A.M. has thrived in carving out their distinctive sound, often described as striking the balance between delicate and thumping. From club-heating releases on PIV to a dreamy collaborative album with Chris Stussy, S.A.M.’s elite production shines through in every track with groove always at the forefront. S.A.M. now joins the Defected crew with ‘Spotlight’, featuring striking vocals from Sarah Ikumu who seamlessly covers the well-known Jennifer Hudson song. ‘Spotlight’ is no stranger to big club moments with Chris Stussy championing the record as a staple in their sets from Fabric to Printworks, to Sam Divine and Simon Dunmore seeing in the New Year of 2022 with the release. This eternal dancefloor gem is one to be heard loud amongst a crowd and the moments that accompany it are bound to blow you away.
