defected presents sam divine in the house (double CD, £9.95)label: defected
Sam Divine In The House caps a hard-earned and well-deserved rise to the top for this much-loved selector. In 10 years, the Bath-born DJ has progressed from practising in a shed at the bottom of her mum’s garden to headlining main stages at festivals, running her own record label. Ranging from Max Chapman’s tech-house smasher ‘Paravana’ to Mat.Joe’s tribal remix of Milk & Sugar ‘My Lovin’, through the classic dub of Mood II Swing’s ‘Closer’ and Dennis Ferrer’s anthemic new single ‘Right Thing’, this refreshing refusal to remain bound to any one style makes this compilation an essential release for any house music lover. Drawing on all of her experience gained from working in record shops and holding down residencies at Ushuaia and Amnesia, Sam has developed into an expert at creating a musical journey and keeping the listener moving from start to finish, whether it be with her live sets or studio mixes. ‘Defected presents Sam Divine In The House’ is without doubt her most complete body of work to date, and places her amongst some of house music’s all-time greats.
