Back by popular demand Defected will return to the USA this autumn for not one but four dates in November, touring the finest clubbing hotspots of San Francisco, Washington DC, Chicago and Los Angeles. Returning to the states after five years Defected bring long-term resident, radio presenter and much-loved fan favourite Sam Divine along for all four dates plus Derrick Carter, Riva Starr, Melé and Jacky.

Kicking off at San Francisco’s uber-stylish dance destination Halcyon on Friday, 2nd November, beat technician Jacky, a Defected Ibiza resident and breakthrough tech-inclined house producer with releases on DFTD in his growing catalogue joins Sam for an explosive start to the tour. Next up Jacky and Sam do it over again at Washington DC’s Flash nightclub on Wednesday, 7th November.

Making a very special stop at a living mecca of house music history, Smart Bar in Chicago on Friday, 9th November, it was crucial to show up with some heavy hitters from the Defected roster for this one. A Chicago legend and an unstoppable character on the house music scene for over two decades, none other than Derrick Carter headlines at Smart Bar joined by the latest inductee to the In The House hall of fame, Melé, bringing his unique Latin flavours and edits. Of course Sam is one not to miss in Chicago too and she continues on to the last stop on the tour, Sound in LA on Saturday, 10th November along with a long-time Defected favourite, Riva Starr.

North American family, we know you’ve been asking to have us back for a long while. We listened, and we can’t wait to party with you this autumn. Believe us it’s going to be worth the wait.
