It’s that time again, 2018 is on the horizon and what better way to bring in the New Year than the well-loved Defected NYE party at Ministry of Sound. As always, this is the perfect opportunity to get the whole Defected family together to celebrate what has been an unprecedented year for the label. Having made stops around the globe in Dubai, Ibiza, Croatia, Belgium, Amsterdam and more, the party returns home to London on 31st December for a huge end-of-year celebration.
This has been a momentous year for Defected, seeing the second instalment and outright success of Defected Croatia and their triumphant return to Ibiza with a residency at Eden. The festival, which took place at The Garden in Tisno, included more DJs, beach parties and impromptu back-to-back sessions across six days of house heaven, definitely made 2017 one to remember. And after road blocks at 20 weeks’ worth of parties at Eden, it was clear that Defected were back to dominate in San Antonio.
Going hand in hand with the parties has been the number of exceptional releases throughout the year, and where better to start than the global hit record that is ‘Cola’. A defining musical moment of the year, CamelPhat & Elderbrook’s unforgettable smash record became the Ibiza anthem and the soundtrack to many DJ’s and clubber’s summer. Further defining tracks came from Franky Rizardo with ‘Same Man’, as well as Josh Butler, Amine Edge & DANCE, Dario D’Attis, who will all be appearing at the New Year’s party.
This year consists of another huge line-up of international DJs at the iconic London venue. Flying the Defected flag across the Box, 103 and Loft rooms are: Roger Sanchez, Sonny Fodera, Amine Edge & DANCE, Josh Butler, Simon Dunmore, Dario D’Attis, Jess Bays, Andy Daniell, Natasha Kitty Katt and Melvo Baptiste.
Come and toast to a fantastic year of music and let’s welcome 2018 the only way Defected know how – with an almighty party.
