Watch This: Defected celebrates 15 years with new mini documentary
As far as house music goes, it doesn’t get much bigger (or better) than Defected Records. Founded fifteen years ago by Simon Dunmore, the independent UK imprint has risen to global prominence thanks to an amazing reputation for A&R and some of the most consistent record releases over the last decade. A look at their track record will quickly validate their stature — over the years, the label has hosted top notch releases from everyone from Nic Fanciulli to MK, to legends like Masters At Work and Henrik Schwarz.
In celebration of their 15 year anniversary, Defected has released an official mini documentary detailing their success in 2014. The video is narrated by Dunmore himself, walking through some of the label’s most seminal releases as well as bigger records from the past year. As one of dance music’s most seasoned tastemakers, Dunmore’s insight into the industry is both enlightening and charming. Combined with a killer Defected soundtrack and some festival eye-candy, it’s well worth lending your time to.
