DEFECTED IN THE HOUSE // D-VINE SOUNDS
Sam Divine is a DJ that knows exactly what to play and when to play it. 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.
With her tireless work ethic, this summer, Sam will play Tomorrowland, Eastern Electrics, Defected Croatia, SW4, and Creamfields, as well as regularly DJing at Eden with Defected. Sam 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 year’s ‘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.
TEMPA // HATCHED
NAMED AS ONE OF MIXMAG’S GREATEST DJs OF ALL TIME
No one DJ or indeed producer can claim sole credit for dubstep. But when the history of the genre gets told, no DJ has ever had, or perhaps ever will again have so much influence over the course of the genre as Hatcha. It’s no overstatement to say the entire genre bares his stamp.
Hatcha’s roots seep deep back into late ‘90s UK garage, Croydon and pirate radio. Originally the buyer at the now defunct Big Apple record shop, Hatcha was one of the very first DJs to pick up on the new dark strains of 2step that were being made by local producers like El-B, Artwork and Horsepower at the turn of the millennium.
PHONETIC, KRAFTED, KU CLUB
The last 18 months have seen Sam’s brand of weighty Tech House gain support from the likes of Sven Vath, Mark Knight and his 2nd ever release remixed by Marco Carola exclusively for the Music On camp. After spending 133 days in the Beatport Top 100, reaching the House Top 10 with music at #33 across all overall releases in the 2nd half of 2017 alone, Sam’s productions have gained widespread notoriety and support including airtime on Toolroom Radio and Rinse FM.
No stranger to the turntables, our very own Ku Club resident’s career as a DJ spans 3 different continents and he has built a solid reputation based on his delivery of high-energy DJ sets.
