One to Keep an Eye on Is Logic1000

Posted by Mike Schumacher

In dance music, melody is sometimes seen as something you must tolerate while waiting for the rhythm to return. Take your medication with a pinch of sugar.

Samantha Poulter is well aware of the situation. Her excellent Logic1000 creations bounce merrily across genres, yet never fail to provide a captivating melody. Her heart is in house music, but her adolescent adoration for Destiny’s Child and Missy Elliott shines through in deliciously odd tunes like Na and Perfume.

For a few years, Poulter uploaded tunes online as DJ Logic, until another DJ Logic served him with a cease-and-desist order. Poulter’s first 12-inch, DJ Logic Please Forgive Me, relaunched in 2019 as Logic1000, took her to a new level with its genuine passion and floor-shivering bass. Songs like What You Like, which seeks compassion between Bicep and Mazzy Star, are equally compelling in and out of clubs.

Poulter, who grew up in Sydney and played drums in her sister’s spaghetti western rock band while working in retail, childcare, and mental health, came to Berlin last year. After a hiatus due to the pandemic and the birth of a new child, she’ll be back in the DJ booth in 2022. She also intends to work on her first album, despite the fact that she has no clue what it will sound like.

“All of my music is very spontaneous,” she explains. “I’m not a logical thinker!” exclaims the speaker.

The EP In the Sweetness of You by Logic1000 is available now on Therapy.
