Essentials: Samantha Duenas aka DJ SoSuperSam
DJ AND TASTEMAKER
Los Angeles native Samantha Duenas, better known as SoSuperSam surely has an eye for music and fashion. This DJ/trendsetter has been relatively known in the music circle for her inborn talent to curate music and produce creative mixes, which would often amalgamate diverse genres with the likes of ’80s, ’90s, dance, electronic, hip-hop, indie, R&B and soul. It was back in 2010 that SoSuperSam released her Cruel Summer mixtape and garnered noteworthy attention to high profile clients. Since then, she stepped forward onto the national and international scene, opening for some artists such as Boyz II Men and Dam Funk. Just few months back, she released her most recent mixtape called This Way Up, and currently she’s on tour with Childish Gambino.
