With 2019 marking our twentieth anniversary year, it has already seen us throw parties across the globe from our hometown London, all the way to the USA, Australia and across Europe, with half the Ibiza season, Defected Croatia and our London FSTVL all still to come. It has been eye-opening for us to see the incredible global community we have, from the ravers who come and party at our events, to the roster of DJs and producers from across the globe who allow us to release their music.

Since the label’s inception, the Defected compilations have been a core part of our musical outputs, tracing musical trends from Ibiza to Miami, championing our artists and always delivering upfront packages of house music direct to your speakers. Recent changes to the iTunes service meant we could no longer deliver the mixed products we know our audience loved, so we have teamed up with Apple Music to deliver our brand-new mix series Defected Worldwide.

Specially curated by world-class DJs, these hour-long mixes will feature house anthems, underground heat and up-front remixes that champion Defected’s international roster. First up to deliver his Defected Worldwide mix is Dutch DJ and man of the moment Ferreck Dawn. After a string of hit releases that include his collaborations with Robosonic ‘In Arms’ and ‘In My Arms’ with Nikki Ambers, as well as his solo outing on the label ‘You Are The One’, Ferreck has become a fully fledged member of the Defected family, and of course will joining us in Ibiza, Croatia and for our Defected London FSTVL.
