Being close to the Smallville Records crew, with an amazing release coming on the Down By The Lake sub-label, can mean one thing for DJ Assam: a passion for smooth, dreamy deep house. We knew that already, as we met DJ Assam on  yet another house music oriented German record label, Lehult. Same chilled sunny vibes, different names :) As Assam’s productions slide seamlessly from funk accents to jazzy piano strings, we asked him to reveal some of his inspiration sources, tracked through a short record selection from his own collection.

DJ Assam is playing on Friday the 14th of June at Halele Carol, Bucharest, for Telekom Electronic Beats Festival. Check here the full lineup and program and buy your tickets here.



A second hand dig I’m most proud of


The record I’d love to see it repressed


The label I’d buy all their releases without even listening to them



The record artwork that blows my mind every time I look at it


The record that triggers childhood memories


The record shop I would spend my whole savings in

Carpet & Snares in Lisbon! Lovely place.


The record that never leaves my DJ bag


Last record I checked its price on discogs

I found out I have this record and never play it… Anyone want it?


Last record I bought for my home listening pleasure


The record closest to my heart from my entire collection
