Following the appointment of Stay True Sounds label owner Kid Fonque as our head of A&R in January, we are delighted to announce a new showcase adding to our ever-growing radio schedule.

The newly launched ‘A&R Spotlight' series gives our A&R team the chance to show off their music taste each Thursday from 4-6pm (UK). From sharing their favourite new tracks and artists from an eclectic range of sources, to inviting special guests to join in on the fun, the space is theirs to own for two hours.

Last week's show (2nd February) saw resident selector Stanley Hood take to the airwaves, featuring a guest mix from Italian Ibiza favourite Tuccillo. To find out what inspires our team here at Defected, previous shows are available to listen to on Soundcloud and Youtube once the show has been broadcast.

"It’s a real privilege to be an A&R for the mighty Defected Records. Each team member implementing a monthly radio show allows us to showcase the music we love and are involved in daily. Each show will also give our community insight into the labels, staff and the music we love so much. Welcome to the weekly A&R spotlight." - Kid Fonque

Next up, on the 9th February, one of Defected's 2022 'Unsung Heroes' Rio Tashan is set to shake things up with special guest Olive F.

Tune in to Defected's A&R Spotlight series on Defected Broadcasting House live every Thursday from 4-6pm, or on Soundcloud and Youtube post broadcast.
