From winning a DJ competition in Bristol to her iTunes chart-topping Defected In The House mix compilation, the past 10 years have been both a hard-earned and well-deserved rise to the top for Sam Divine. The Bath-born DJ has gone from practicing in a shed at the bottom of her mum’s garden to main stage festival headliner, while also becoming a label owner and the presenter of Defected’s In The House radio show, the #1 house music podcast on iTunes.
Her new releases demonstrate a real progression in Sam as a producer, as she finds her own unique sound and an ability to create uplifting house records fit for any dancefloor. Drawing on all of her experience gained from working in record shops and holding down residencies at Ushuaia and Amnesia, Sam has developed into an expert at creating a musical journey and keeping the listener moving from start to finish, whether it be with her live sets or studio mixes.
Simon Dunmore: “DJs like Sam Divine are rare in these times - a selector whose reputation is built purely on her ability to play the right record at the right time. She is able to completely control the room, naturally reading the dancefloor and connecting with her audience. It’s rare because when all the elements connect the DJ, the crowd and the music are as one!”
