A born entertainer with a burning desire to play music to people around the world, Sam Divine’s enigmatic sets are an effortless schooling in pure, unadulterated house. From her early days as the sole member of the Defected street team in Ibiza to fronting their radio show and now headlining the world’s biggest clubs and festivals, The First Lady of Defected, has become an intrinsic part of the UK house music scene. The seeds of Sam’s DJ career can be traced back to a pair of belt drive turntables and a battered Numark mixer set up in her Mum’s shed; a pirate radio show broadcast from her bedroom using ‘borrowed’ equipment from the local college, MSN Messenger and time spent expanding her musical knowledge working at Spin Central in her home town of Weston-super-Mare and Chemical Records in Bristol.
A chance encounter with then Defected Radio host, Aaron Ross, in Notting Hill in theearly 00s, led Sam to Ibiza where she quickly became an integral figure in the West End. Since then she’s played at some of the island’s biggest clubs year upon year, holding down residencies at Pacha, Mambo, Amnesia, Eden and Ushuaïa, all the while sharing space with some of the greatest names in dance music, including Frankie Knuckles, Master’s At Work, MK, DJ Spen, KiNK, Sandy Rivera and Dennis Ferrer to name a few.
Sam launched her own highly successful imprint, DVINE Sounds, in 2015. To date, the label has seen almost 100 releases, helping to propel talented up and coming artists into the spotlight. Her own foray into production began with a remix of the classic garage anthem ‘Flowers’ that proved a hit, reaching the top spots on Traxsource and Beatport. A remix of Amira’s 1997 garage hit, ‘My Desire’, followed in 2019. In 2020 DVINE celebrated its fifth birthday, with the label evolving into branded events, boat parties, a stage at We Are FSTVL and a return to ADE.
Stepping back twelve months, 2019 was a year of firsts for Sam with her debut appearance at London’s Printworks venue, where she returned on New Year’s Day alongside her Defected crew. That September she was invited by Radio 1 tastemaker Pete Tong to record a coveted Essential Mix – a true marker of how far her career had come.
On top of touring globally and playing festivals worldwide, Sam continues to put a focus on giving back, raising over £50,000 for Breast Cancer Research through her charity D-Vita and mentoring up and coming female artists via her association to Lady In The House. Like all others, the pandemic ground all touring to a halt but it also inspired Sam to spend more time in the studio and 2021 also brought new music in a collaboration with Australian DJ and producer, Kormak, as well as a new EP on her own label.
Since then she has showed no signs of slowing down with 45+ week touring schedules in each of 2022 & 2023, while the fruits of those studio labors manifested in a frequent release schedule, that featured collaborations with Josh Barry (Take My Hand), Hayley May (Face In The Crowd) and others. Looking ahead to 2024, Sam already has confirmed releases with Hannah Wants & Jem Cooke, another collaboration with Josh Barry, remixes for Dennis Ferrer & Inner City and confirmed DVINE Sounds events for Miami Music Week, Hideout Festival (Croatia), One Out Festival (London) and Defected boat parties in Croatia & Malta, all the while continuing her weekly FM radio show on Kiss UK and Defected.
