Camelphat & Elderbrook joined an exclusive club recently, the kind of club where entries come few and far between from an independent record label. The duo joined the list of artist's who have had Silver certified records on Defected in the UK, that’s 200,000 copies! an incredible achievement. Showing the popularity of the record, Cola also went Platinum in Ireland selling 15,000.
The thing I am really proud about with @CamelPhat selling 200,000 copies in the UK is the job Team @DefectedRecords have done! To achieve this as an independent label is rare in these times! Give us great music and we will deliver 💿💿💿💿💿💿!— Simon Dunmore (@SimonDunmore) November 23, 2017
