Dennis Ferrer has an exquisite track record as producer and remixer. Countless hits and club anthems to his name, not to mention a very special decade-long relationship with ourselves.

Outside of his own imprint Objektivity, Defected has provided a home to some of Ferrer’s biggest hits as well as a platform to many of his explosive DJ sets, like the one he recently played at Defected Croatia Festival 2016. So who better to do the honours for the label’s momentous 500th release, or 'DFTD500' than Dennis Ferrer.

'Bubbletop' is Dennis at his most bold and salacious. The track features the sassiest of vocals from Sagine, with the punchy bassline giving a tonne of attitude and is guaranteed to get stuck in your head after the first listen. Each Dennis track speaks for itself, and ‘Bubbletop’ more than meets expectations with his razor-sharp levels of production, finished off with Dennis’ characteristically quirky, mischievous style.

We are proud to have reached 500 releases, and we couldn't think of anyone better to join us in doing so...

Dennis Ferrer: "Defected has provided me with a base of support throughout the years that is pretty much immeasurable in its worth. I've benefited greatly from the hard working staff breaking records and Simon's constant vigil in providing the fan base with quality dance records throughout the years.  I truly believe that Defected's contribution to the history of dance music has been cemented with the 500th release and to this I tip my hat... for I am not only a contributor, but also a fan. Congratulations are in order."

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, Dj’s, clubbers and music lovers. Just to be a small part of that is an incredible feeling."
