Samples (aka Ben Samples), also known for his work in the live remix project Fresh2Death, is a Producer and DJ based out of Denver, CO. He creates and performs electronic dance music, including bass-heavy remixes of club and hip hop favorites, original glitch hop, soulful dub step, funky house or amalgamations of other styles.
Starting his career as a DJ at a well known Colorado radio station, covering various styles and genres with a focus on dance music and hip hop, Samples began creating his own hybrid of hip hop and dance music into a club sound that fits as well in theaters and festivals as it does on dance floors.
With a full length album released on Made in Glitch Records, EPs supported by Daly City Records, Simplify Recordings, and True Movement as well as tracks on Muti Music, Run Riot Records, Car Crash Set, Mambo Records, Old Tacoma Records, Global Vortex, and BomBeatz, Samples is one of the most sought out producers and remix artists in the bass music scene with collaborations including some of electronic music’s most influential people. Ranking among the top on charts such as iTunes, Beatport and Addictech has been Samples' foundation to perform club, event and festival dates all over the country to audiences very familiar with his music.
“Ben Samples is one of the staples when throwing around names in the glitch-hop and mid-tempo genres of music”, (SubSynthesis, 2010) and continues to evolve a unique voice in electronic dance music with his complexity and depth.

“The drive to make music is more or less my life, it’s like asking someone what inspires them to breathe. Music just is in me somehow and I just need to let it out on the regular. That keeps me sane, regular, and functioning. To me there is a very strong energy and feeling that comes with sharing music or art with people. It’s like the more music that I let out, the more positive energy is able to come in…” - Knight Riderz
Greenhouse Lounge is an electronic musical trio that combines the computer based production of a DJ, accompanied by rock guitar leads, heavy synthesized bass and live drums. They are adept at merging these rumbling dub basslines with pumping electronica beats, breakbeat dynamics and staggering sample manipulation. Their music can be described as euphoric; a hypnotic based sound; tightly woven sonic soundscapes that are rich in melody and texture.
