Sammy Melanie (Godbabe) Interview & Exclusive Nostalgic House Guest Mix
DJ Sammy Melanie is a new recruit to The Godfathers of Deep House SA Godbabes roster. Having joined in 2019 she has developed her DJ skills playing across her hometown of Soweto and is now gaining support via her online sets.
I joined the Godfathers of Deep House SA as a Godbabe in 2019. It’s an interesting story: I have been a Godfan for the longest time. While purchasing their T-shirt I was communicating with them through their WhatsApp number and I was asked if I would like to join the Godbabes, learn how to DJ & produce music then I said yes.
Definitely. I have a huge collection of house music, the likes of Mr Fingers, DJ Rocco Rodammal, Louie Vega, Matthew Herbert, Knee Deep the list is endless.

It’s fun. Their very relaxed people and amazing to work with.
Since I am new in the industry, I’m currently working on perfecting my DJ’ing skills and learning production.
I want to make a good impact on the culture, share my love for music with a receptive audience and one day be able to produce my own music.
For me, it’s all about mood and deep, hypnotic groove. Playing those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head without you realizing it, regardless or genre, tempo, style or release date.
Not yet, I will soon.
Determine your goals, learn as much as you can such as basic DJ skills, record mixtapes and build a following.
Be passionate about it and love what you’re doing.

An infusion of beautiful synth work, ethereal backdrops, brooding basslines, and all on top of a pronounced foot-shuffling house beat.
I play at special events and host Nostalgic sessions in Soweto my hometown. But now I’m going digital.
