This November, Vanilla Ace brings his inimitable gritty, bass-heavy, club-ready house sound to the States, touching down at some of the country’s most revered clubbing spots and bringing a few talented friends along for the ride.
Sam Young aka Vanilla Ace is best known by the alias he created back in 2012. Under Vanilla Ace he’s had a string of Beatport No.1’s – Bring it Back in 2013 on OFF recordings, and the Gee in 2016 on Club Sweat not least among them – and has released on a slew of leading labels including Toolroom, Suara, Nervous, HotBoi and Kittball to name a few.
At the end of 2017 Sam unveiled his new alias, Sammy Deuce: born from his love for classic house music with influences of disco, soul and jackin, with Sam sampling obscure disco records in releases that have been put out by Glasgow Underground and Nervous.
“Great to be touring the USA again alongside some of my peers. Really looking forward to seeing what each City will bring. I’ve played California loads but this will be my first time in Sacramento!” Vanilla Ace
More recently in 2019, Sam launched his own label, WyldCard Records in order to release his own material and music from his peers when he wanted and not rely on anyone else’s schedule or taste in music. The label is a reflection of music Sam would play or likes for his Vanilla ACE DJ sets.
The first release on the label was the self explanatory ‘Rock Right’ by Sam’s Vanilla ACE project, with further releases from Worthy (Dirtybird), Gettoblaster, LA Riots, Berlin newcomers Ausemm FF, Sasa Di Toma, Miami’s Ayarez, UK’S Luke Davidson and Animist.
