      EVENT DETAILS
      Sam Divine

      with Confetti The First, Abbey J
      Sam Divine is a DJ that knows exactly what to play and when to play it. The hours she spent rifling through vinyl in the warehouse of Chemical Records, where Sam once worked as a house buyer, gives her an insurmountable understanding of the genre. Having played nearly every club in Ibiza including residencies at Ushuaia, Amnesia and Sankeys and landed at top-end festivals, there are few who can offer a house music education like Sam Divine. Last year, she racked up over a hundred gigs and is well on track to exceed that in 2017, having already hit up the likes of Europe, North America and Asia. And her reputation for energising a dancefloor has been acknowledged by her inclusion in Pete Tongs Selector Series for Radio 1.A late starter, Sam took up DJing at 21 learning to mix in her mums garden shed. Her breakthrough came soon after with a DJ competition and landed her first residency at a club in Weston-super-Mare, where she was also the main booker, while also working in record stores. In 2005, after swapping Bristol for Ibiza, Sam became a vital component of San Antonios west end (where this year she makes a triumphant return as a resident for Defected at Eden) and has spent every season on the White Isle ever since. During this time, Divine also began working with Defected, who in 2009 signed her to their artist roster. A weekly warm-up at Mambo ensued, opening for legendary names like Kenny Dope and Frankie Knuckles, as well as hosting the weekly Defected Radio show that currently holds the #2 spot on iTunes in the UK Music Podcasts chart. The real turning point, however, came when she played We Are FSTVL in 2013. I dropped a mix the night before and everyone went mad for it; the tent went from nothing to one-in-one-out within half an hour, she explains. After that, the bookings just went nuts. With her tireless work ethic, this summer, Sam will play Tomorrowland, Eastern Electrics, Defected Croatia, SW4, and Creamfields. She will also showcase her label D-Vine Sounds, which she launched in 2015, with a stage at We Are FSTVL, dates in Ibiza and a boat party at Defected Croatia. This year also marks the 10-year anniversary of La Vita, the annual DJ charity night that Sam helped to launch and has so far raised 35,000 for Breast Cancer Research. Recently, Sam has also begun to flirt with production; her first major release, a remix of garage anthem Flowers with production partner Curtis Gabriel, hit #1 on both Traxsource and Beatport. Last years Confessions was her first release on Defected, while her Sam Divine In The House compilation featured further productions and went #1 on iTunes Dance chart. This summer she dropped In Da Nation EP with Cassimm on DFTD. Sam Divines work ethic has seen her more than earn her stripes on the scene. A dedicated army of fans now spreads across the globe as her uplifting house sets captivate audiences everywhere she takes to the booth. With an unwavering love of music and tireless dedication to her craft, Sam is living proof you can achieve pretty much anything you set your mind to and no one can hold her back.
