Originally hailing from Vienna and currently based in London, Sattam is an Austrian/Bengali electronic music artist who has been enthralled by the industry since the age of 14. It was during his formative teen years that he was introduced to Pendulum, which opened the Pandora’s Box to various other genres of electronic music. Unsatisfied with mainstream music during university, Sattam learned to DJ with a friend to play the music they loved. This led to exploring production and experimenting with various genres like House, Disco, and Techno. Subsequently, Sattam’s passion for this creative avenue led him to relocate to London, which exposed him to the underground scene. Here, he was shifted towards more diverse soundscapes in the enchanting genres of Trance and Garage. Sattam’s talent garnered significant attention from labels like Eton Messy and Southpoint, and has earned his deserved recognition through Spotify playlists and DJ support from renowned artists like Jody Wisternoff, The Blessed Madonna, Works of Intent, and BLOND:ISH. With over 2 million Spotify listens and appearances on BBC Radio 1 Introducing, Sattam’s journey has been one littered with remarkable successes, yet it is still just beginning – certainly not one to miss out on for any Electronic music fan.

Were you connected with music from a young age and did anyone inspire you?
I discovered electronic music when I was 12 through an online game called World of Warcraft. Someone in the game told me to listen to ‘Blood Sugar’ by Pendulum and that was the start of the now 15 year rabbit hole.
What kickstarted your music career?
I’d say I officially started taking it seriously as a career when I released my first song to the public in September 2017. The songs from that era are long gone.
Tell us more about your sound and how it’s evolved over time
My sound is constantly evolving – even my music from two years ago is completely different to now. It is hard not to be influenced by so many different areas when you are in a city like London. The one element that I try to keep throughout the years is the dreamy nature of the sounds.
