Sam Gribben was one of the first four people to work at DJ and production software company Serato… and when he left the company 10 years later, he’d been CEO for over half a decade, and the workforce was 75! Not bad for someone at their first serious job…

Since then, Sam has combined his skills in technology, his love for music, and a life-long attraction to teaching, in his new company, Melodics. Melodics is an innovative take on online music tuition, teaching keyboards, drums and how to use controller pads.

In this episode of Tales From the Dancefloor, Sam talks about the pirate TV station he helped start while still at college, his failed attempt to get involved with an early innovator of DVS technology at 4am at a party in Amsterdam… and how RZA of Wu Tang Klan gave the Serato team the shock of their lives in the early days!
