British DJ & production duo Somn3um (pronounced ‘Som-nee-um’) have been taking the house music world by storm since forming in 2016.


David Newsum & Scott Forshaw are based in both Dubai and London, and together hold an rich and impressive history of house music.


David Newsum began his career in electronic music as a celebrated Trance DJ and producer, having received recognition from the likes of Above & Beyond and featuring on A State of Trance. He was signed to the revered UK label Discover Records.


Scott Forshaw is one of the talented group of fast-rising DJ/producers hailing from Leeds. His sound, which is instantly recognisable, encompasses bass infused House, including 90s R&B and Garage references with a hard-hitting groove. It’s this infectious sound which caught the eye of Armada, signing him up in late 2015. Scott’s label credits include the likes of Universal, Ministry of Sound, Hed Kandi, 3Beat, Toolroom and many more.


David & Scott began working together early in 2016 and have been releasing a multitude of tracks and remixes since.


Not content with a busy studio schedule, Somn3um have also launched their own label – Somn’thing Records. The ethos behind the label focuses not just on records from the Somn3um studio, but also from other artists they love; covering a deep, house-centric sound.


As part of the label output, the duo have also launched a weekly global radio show Somn’thing Else. The show, which is presented by Somn3um, features a weekly dose of the freshest electronic music on the planet, plus all the banter you could possibly want. Includes interviews with your favourite DJs and celebs in ‘Say Somn’thing’. The show is available on iTunes here:


As DJs, Somn3um have consistently delivered. Very quickly after forming they were granted residencies at legendary club night The Gallery at Ministry of Sound in London, and the award winning Zero Gravity beach club in Dubai. So far they have shared the stage with the likes of Hannah Wants, Darius Syrossian, Jonas Blue, Sonny Fodera, Danny Howard and Mark Knight.
