DJ Sam Groove Hades Entertainment

See and Be Seen: It feels like it's [been] the center of Scottsdale and it's almost like all of the entertainment in town revolves around the club. So playing there feels like you're being heard by the entire city. That was especially the case for me when I opened for Adventure Club last month. After I played -- and even outside the club -- tons of people were coming up to me with positive things to say about my set.

Favorite Axis-Radius gig: Definitely has to be Blackjack last year playing a breakbeat tag set with Soloman in the main room. He used to play breaks back in the day, and got booked at Future Sound of Breaks in Florida a few years back, so it was cool to be a part of an old school versus new school DJ set.

Short and Sweet: My quote is, "They should have booked me more."
