Tracing back to when her career started, we understand the hardships he has gone through to be so successful. As she had just started off with a set up of pair of belt drive turntables and a battered Numark mixer set up in her Mum’s shed. However her pirate radio show was aired from her bedroom using borrowed equipment from a local college. This was all done from her hometown of Weston-super-Mare and Chemical Records in Bristol.
A Chance encounter with then older 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. She shared the space with some of the greatest names in dance such as MK, Masters At Work and many more.
She launched her most successful imprint, DIVINE sounds in 2015. the label has 58 releases as of 2020. In fact in 2020 Divine will celebrate its fifth birthday. The label will evolve as a brand with boat parties, a stage at We Are FSTVL and a return to ADE.
019 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.
But sam doesn’t seem to be slowing down. With many parties in the diary and plans to return to the festival circuit and numerous tours dates, its looking like a busy year for Sam. Hopefully the world returns back to normal soon so she can carry on with her amazing career.
