Simon Dunmore is Defected; plain and simple. Without him, one of the world’s longest-standing and most highly respected house music labels would not exist, and the current landscape of electronic music would appear that little bit flatter. 2016 was a landmark year for both Simon and the label, with our first ever Defected festival in Croatia, the 500th Defected release and Glitterbox flourishing more than ever before. Moving into 2017, Simon continues be the guiding light in house music, with the focus on releasing greatest music, putting on greatest events and giving people the greatest dancefloor moments of their lives. We Are Defected.
Simon Dunmore: "500 singles. A journey that has only been possible because of the incredible music we have been able to release. There was no masterplan, we made this trip one step at a time. It has been an incredible journey; we have met amazing people and experienced occasions we only ever dreamed of. House continues to bring people together… producers, DJs, clubbers and music lovers. Just to be a small part of that is an incredible feeling."
