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 some of 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 and MSN Messenger, and time spent expanding her musical knowledge working at Spin Central in her hometown of Weston-super-Mare and Chemical Records in Bristol.
A chance encounter with then Defected Radio host, Aaron Ross, in Notting Hill in the early 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, and sharing space with some of the greatest names in dance including Frankie Knuckles, Master’s At Work, MK, DJ Spen, KiNK, Sandy Rivera and The Shapeshifters.
Sam launched her own highly successful imprint, DVINE Sounds, in 2015. To date, the label has seen 58 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 will celebrate its fifth birthday with the label evolving as a brand with events, boat parties, a stage at We Are FSTVL and a return to ADE. Sam will also launch Round Our House, a series of parties that encapsulate an intimate, house party vibe.
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. In September she was invited by Radio 1 tastemaker Pete Tong to record a coveted Essential Mix – a true marker of how far her career has come. 2019 also marked Divine’s first Mixmag Lab NYC set. All this on top of touring globally, playing 21 festivals worldwide, an epic gig at the top of London’s iconic Tower Bridge and raising over £40,000 for Breast Cancer Research through her charity D-Vita.
Sam shows no sign of slowing down in 2020 with a number of Defected parties already in the diary, a return to the festival circuit, an Australasian tour and solo tours throughout North America and Canada. December will also see the return of last year’s sold-out Openers tour with Sam playing all night long across two weekends in December. 2020 brings new music in collaboration with Australian DJ and producer, Kormak, on Defected as well as a new EP on her own label. With her passion and dedication to her music beyond doubt, Sam Divine is a musician who will continue to evolve and grow.
Low Steppa’s tenure in the scene has been short but explosive due to his forward thinking and intelligent production work, making his popularity rise rapidly.
Catapulting his career with his massive bootleg of Route 94’s ‘My Love’ reaching over 1.4million plays on YouTube in 2013 truly set the pace of things to come. The track received so much hype that Route 94 replaced his own version within club sets, giving it away for free across his social media channels. This prompted Low Steppa’s Soundcloud page to become an essential download destination for house fans. Now, a regular feature on the UK’s favourite radio shows, you can hear Low Steppa’s tracks on Kiss FM, Capital/ Capital Xtra FM and BBC Radio 1 Xtra.
Since “My Love” success, notable productions include his most recent rework of Hardrive’s ‘Deep Inside’, which was picked up by legendary dance label Strictly Rhythm, also reaching No.1 on Traxsource within the first week of release.
Playing Radio 1’s Big Weekend Opening Party, EDC Las Vegas, Mysteryland and becoming a favourite with the Sankeys brand as a ‘one to watch’ in both Manchester and Ibiza clubs, the DJ has secured a headline summer 2015 residency at the latter, reaching new heights.
House music’s new prodigy has received huge support from Radio 1 DJ’s Mistajam, Target, Cameo and B Traits as well as Pete Tong, Gorgon City and Shadow Child. The versatile talent, Low Steppa, has gone from strength to strength with his latest single ‘So Real’ released in June 2015 on Universal’s premiere dance imprint label, All Around The World Records which reached number 1 in the music week dance charts.
Alongside his heavy DJ schedule and releases, Low Steppa operates his own label by the name of Simma Black, nurturing new talent.
Low Steppa is in hot demand for his wired bootlegs he is so well known for and can be heard on Rinse FM every third Friday of the month.
Born Dirty stormed onto the scene just a few years ago and quickly turned the heads of top DJ’s everywhere. The music industry’s most notable labels and tastemakers jumped on the project, with instantaneous support from Mad Decent, OWSLA, Fool’s Gold, Dirtybird, and Insomniac Records. Fast forward to 2020 and he’s coming off his strongest year to date, and is still riding high off his Diplo collab “Sambo Sujo,” that recently dropped on Higher Ground.
He’s performed at some of the world’s most premiere festivals – Lollapalooza, Electric Daisy Carnival, HARD Summer, Les Plages Electroniques, Shambala, Splash House, and Holy Ship! to name a few. His discography – including collabs with Cassius, Anna Lunoe, Kid Sister, and more — pulls from across the spectrum of music he’s experienced growing up in France and beginning his music career in the UK.
