After capturing the hearts of all who attended their summer residency at Space Ibiza over the last few months, the island’s most talked-about party, Glitterbox, now distils its unique, accessible and heritage-laden disco, soul and house soundtrack into this expansive release. Defected presents Glitterbox London is a new mix album from the most talked-about Ibiza party of recent memory, joining the dots between classic and contemporary dance music rooted in soul and disco and celebrating the rich and diverse dance music history of the UK’s capital. Mixed by Defected’s founder Simon Dunmore and featuring some the most inspiring artists from the last 40 years of dance music, including Gwen Guthrie, First Choice, Patrice Rushen, Donald Byrd, Blondie, Breakbot, Moloko, and Purple Disco Machine, Glitterbox London is packed full of both unashamed anthems and hidden gems, and simply sparkles from start to finish.

“Selecting tracks than span 30 years of my DJ career is hardly a chore” says Simon. “Digging through my vinyl and CDs, or even scrolling through my iTunes library, define specific moments of my involvement in the scene. I want the album to reflect all the elements that have influenced me...soul, jazz, funk, disco and house. The challenge is then to make it a cohesive musical journey for the listener.”

For the 2015 Ibiza season, Glitterbox relocated from Booom to Space and enjoyed a revelatory sophomore year. Glitterbox’s sound has always been fun, accessible and hedonistic, with a real focus on quality house and disco and more dancefloor smiles per square inch than any other party you could mention, backed by imaginative theming across everything from Mark Wardel’s glamorous promotional artwork to the arousing dance moves of the Savage dance crews Nutbags, Hot Heels and Sink The Pink.

“I believe the fact that Glitterbox has been reviewed so enthusiastically is down to the fact that the DJs curating the nights have real skills” says Simon. “They read the crowd and work to real moments in their sets. It is an art that is sadly declining, but it is clear from the reaction this summer how crucial understanding a room and your crowd is to achieving a great night. The album absolutely reflects the party. With both the focus is simply on great music.”
