“The Sampler” is a premiere monthly event series where music lovers compete to identify samples used in popular songs from a variety of decades & genres at Green Soul in Philadelphia. This event was created by DJ Dommis out of a love for sampling and a desire to share that love with others and engage party goers in an experience. Sorry friends, No “Shazam” or “Who Sampled” allowed here, only fun including three intense rounds of contestants listening carefully to older recordings in an attempt to identify the most notable newer record that sampled it. Each round is carefully guided by fact-filled narrations given by Ava Michele (the event’s host and partner) and winners receive a $25 Green Soul gift card for their next visit. We encourage all DJ’s, couples, and music connoisseurs alike to come test their music knowledge and learn something new! DJ Dommis has been known to take a crowd anywhere they want to go, displaying the true essence of what many consider to be an “Open Format DJ” with a touch of Soul. During any given set, you can expect to hear a variety of music from Afrobeat to Disco classics, R&B to futuristic dance music, and its all mixed to perfection with unpredictable musical integrity. Dominic’s deep love for music stems back to his childhood from listening to Motown records with his grandmother, hunting for new mix tapes, and searching for club records as a teenager. He’s absorbed a plethora of knowledge in his life developing his unique style while performing at bars and private events between classes in college. He’s since carved a lane of his own in the Philadelphia market and currently maintains three event series “Soul Glo” (a “feel good grooves” event that champions a spectrum of soulful music), “Dollar Party”(a no-frills house party-style event for an eclectic crowd at Dahlak Paradise), and “The Sampler“(Philadelphia’s only interactive sample trivia event, which has become a staple among creative minds and competitive melophiles). The Sampler is “Not Your Average” music trivia event, so get ready for some head bobbing, nerve wracking, edge of your seat thrilling fun.
