Sam Divine reinvents a hard house classic

Today we revisit an early 00s hard house favourite, but as you've never heard it before…

Our second exclusive track premiere of the week comes to you courtesy of Tidy Trax sub-label Untidy X, as iDJ proudly brings you a first chance to hear Sam Divine's transformative remix of Lisa Lashes' 2000 club smash Lookin' Good. The single's out this Friday.

Neither of the artists involved needs any introduction, surely? Lisa Lashes has been a figurehead of the hard house scene since it began, and has appeared in iDJ countless times over the years, most recently when we took a trip up to her music school. As for Sam Divine [pictured], her first appearance in iDJ came nearly 20 years ago, when we tipped her in our Ones To Watch slot… there's been no stopping her since, so it's nice to know we get it right sometimes!

The original of Lookin' Good was an undisputed classic of the hard house genre, but as you'll hear below, in Sam's hands it's been completely reinvented as a slice of deep, techy grooviness, its chugging backbeat topped with trippy synths and a bubblin' 303, with only the vocal and the occasional Hoover stab giving any clue as to its original incarnation.

See what you think…
