Thomas Samuel Jankowski aka DJ Sam @ passed through most musical styles before “discovering” trance music in 1993. With Trance he found a way of life that he was always searching for – diverse, intense, tolerant, colorful and underground.

In 1997 Sam started the website together with three friends. Chaishop fastly became “World’s No. 1 Website for Trance Culture” which it still remains today: A place with vast information about trance, mailinglists, party & link databases, etc.. Chaishop’s main objective always was to bring the international trance community closer together. This objective Sam also tries to support with his international DJ appearance and with a new magazine called Trancers Guide to the Galaxy that he initiated together with mushroom magazine in 2004 and that is since then beeing released on an annual basis. In 2005 Sam furthermore participated in compiling the Trancers Guide to the Galaxy Compilation that was released on YSE/Millennium records.

In 1998 Sam started to DJ on parties. His way of building a musical story got very good feedback from the partypeople and so everything evolved. Since then Sam played at around 150 parties in over 20 countries including Mexico, Portugal, Brasil, Hungary, Greece, USA, India, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Austria and of course Germany. In fact he became a really international DJ playing about 50% of his gigs outside of Germany. He loves to play in “young” trance countries and help the scene evolve. Remarkable stations are i.e. Boom Festival 2000 Portugal, Ypy Poty 2002 Brasil, Samothraki Dance Festival 2003 Greece, Voov Experience 2003 Germany, Waldfrieden Wonderland 2004 Germany and Antiworld 2005 UK.

Sam’s Style can be described as powerful groovy psytrance with a progressive touch. He likes to tell a story with times to freak out and times to flow in hypnotic grooves. Mixing is as important as variety. And not every track needs to be “unreleased” - Quality is what counts!

He is known for his large selection of music and ability for long sets. Sam’s longest set at “Unity Festival 2002 Bolivia” was for 16 hours. Sam also plays chill-out sets that are known for their variety ranging through ambient, dub, electro, triphop, downbeat and slow trance.
