Defected Records and Strictly Rhythm celebrates two decades of House Music with special LIVE anniversary event at ADE.

ADE is Europe’s most important destination for the dance music. This year it is an event designed not just for industry big wigs but also for fanatical clubbers. Hailed as ‘the Miami of Europe’, ADE is the place to make a big noise and get noticed and this year Defected Records and Strictly Rhythm, two of the worlds best know House labels have something to shout about.

The first thing you should know is that the big brother to all house labels Strictly Rhythm is out of its teens and into its 20’s, Defected Records itself celebrates its 10 year birthday. Both labels have stamped their own personality and have made indelible marks on the world dance scene.

Some of you will recollect the original Defected 10th anniversary party in London at the Ministry of Sound, where Defected’s biggest vocalist sang the label’s best loved tracks. It was a truly spine tingling moment seeing House music’s royalty sing LIVE.

Here is your chance to experience it again with a whole new roster of legendary artists from the Strictly and Defected. In true Mafia style this is like two of the scenes original family’s getting together. House music’s biggest and best loved vocalists will be specially flown over to perform. Barbara Tucker will be singing ‘Beautiful People’ and ‘Most Precious Love’, the mighty Steve Edwards ‘World, Hold On’ and Marc Evans ‘The Way You Love me’. Ben Westbeech will also sing Live and DJ too. All the artists will all be backed by the Defected/Strictly all stars and a special 5 piece band led by Robin Faze Action.

Coupled with appearances from both The UK’s and Holland’s strongest DJ talent including appearances from The Shapeshifters, ATFC, Hardsoul, Chocolate Puma and Michel Cleis, this is sure to be a memorable event at this year’s ADE.
