This month, Vanilla Ace brings his sound to the States, touching down at various clubbing spots and bringing a few friends along for the ride. Sam Young aka Vanilla Ace is known by the alias he created back in 2012, where he’s apparently had a string of Beatport No1s - ‘Bring it Back’ in 2013 on OFF recordings, and ‘The Gee’ in 2016 on Club Sweat not least among them
He’s also released on 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.
Vanilla Ace: “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!”
More recently in 2019, he launched his own label, WyldCard Records in order to release his own material and music from his peers. The label aims to be a reflection of music he 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.
