How long have you been DJ’ing?
What got you into being a DJ?
I started off producing music, and so the next step was to always get myself a mixer and hopefully begin peforming!
When was your first exposure to electronic music?
My dad was always into house music growing up, and I suppose that's rubbed off onto me! My first real exposure to electronic music was in the clubs during a holiday in Spain. When I got home, I spent countless house watching festivals sets online etc.

What is that thing that most people don’t know about you?
Music is apart of my day every single day one way or another!
If you could give any advice to young DJ’s just starting to get into DJing what would it be?
I'm very new myself but I'd give the advice to learn the basic such as beat matching and then just practice, practice & practice. Along the way you'll pick up new techniques.
More About Sam Girling:
I'm a 17 year old producer/DJ from England!
I've only really got fully into music in the last few months. In late 2016, I broke my foot playing football (football was all that I done back then) which freed up some time. I decided to download a copy of FL Studio and see what I can do. I never realised how much there was to producing! It was honestly like learning a new language. February 2017 came about and I was playing my second game back in football after my break. I then break the exact same bone which means I'm unable to play now until 2017. However, I made the best out of a bad situation and started to get more into my music. Now, music is my first passion and I'm absolutely in love.
My tracks have gained many plays on local radio station in2beats, and the support from them has been amazing! They've just added to my music drive!
I look forward to getting started with HouseFreqs and I can't wait for what the future holds!
