Long associated with the legendary Defected Records, Sam Divine has come a long way since being a record shop employee having spent the last seven years being a key component to the White Isle’s party scene. Her travels have seen her tour throughout Europe as well as Brazil, Chile, Japan and Dominican Republic, with festival highlights including We Are FSTVL (UK) and Pacha Festival (The Netherlands) as well as securing a three year residency at Ushuaia, Ibiza. Without doubt one of the most popular and passionate DJs on the circuit, Sam Divine is a guaranteed floor-filler and party starter.
Divine’s DJ career initially kicked off when she won a DJ competition in Bristol which led to a club residency. Massively in to her soulful house she began working in record shops such as Chemical Records as a house buyer where she gained most of her music and industry knowledge. It was these moments where she realised her life and house music were inseparable. ‘The warehouse was underneath the offices’ she explains, ‘so I used to spend hours down there rummaging through the vinyls on my lunch break’.
After her first season in Ibiza during 2005 Sam decided to move to London, back then the heart of the country’s soulful house, in what she deems as the most important decision in her career. The following year she touched back down in Ibiza, her home for many summers to come, having earned her residencies at many of the islands hotspots.
