SIMON DUNMORE
DEFECTED, FOUNDER & OWNER

Defected

Established 20 years ago, Defected Records’ success was immediate; their very first release – Soulsearcher’s ‘I Can’t Get Enough’ – reached #8 in the UK singles charts, forming the foundation for the label's future successes and musical direction. Soon after came a #1 single in the shape of Roger Sanchez's 'Another Chance', and the successes have continued to flow in, placing Simon in a unique position of influence and authority. In fact, his years of hard work were acknowledged at the International Music Summit (IMS) in Ibiza in 2012, when he picked up the Outstanding Achievement award.

Classic Music Company

Born from the friendship between Luke Solomon and Derrick Carter, Classic is above all else a “family” label; an assembly of diverse artists who refute convention but share in the motivation to satisfy only their own artistic intentions. Creating a platform to share their left-of-centre house selections with the world, Classic began in 1994 as a vinyl imprint, starting at catalogue #100 and counting backwards to zero. Once at zero, Classic retreated briefly before coming back stronger, wonkier and with extended family in tow. Over the last two years Classic has enjoyed a renaissance of impressive proportions, releasing the debut album from Honey Dijon, new music from Horse Meat Disco, Eli Escobar, Crazy P, DJ Spen and many more. 2018 has seen Classic bring their party people back together for a series of events in Ibiza, Amsterdam and London to showcase the full might of the label’s current roll call.
