On Saturday 6th April Defected heads to one of London’s newest warehouse venues for an extra special hometown event for the label. After recent sell out shows at Studio 338 and Printworks, Defected bring another incredible line-up to E1, including house hero and technical wizard Karizma, Defected favourites Sam Divine, Riva Starr, David Penn and Robosonic, as well as emerging DJ and producer Austin Ato.
Prioritising their London fan base after overwhelming local demand and huge sell-out events, this smaller capacity event is an opportunity for Defected’s hometown followers to experience the house music institution’s world-class talent and production in closer quarters. Tickets for the party were initially opened up on pre-sale to Defected’s London followers, but now on general release this event is no doubt going to follow suit with all the recent sell-outs. With E1’s Funktion-One ‘Wall of Sound’ system and intimate vibe, this is set to be an extra-special night, with the DJs set to favour a more underground style fitting of the warehouse venue.
The world’s biggest independent house music label, Defected is celebrating its 20th year throughout 2019 with an elevated string of bigger and better events, including the first ever Defected London FSTVL on September 14th. Under the slogan HOUSE MUSIC ALL LIFE LONG, Defected events represent everything there is to love about house music, bringing people together from all over the world with the finest in current house anthems. Future club classics break through on Defected’s dancefloors – established international headliners and pioneers of the scene alongside fresh new underground talent use the label’s discerning crowd as the benchmark of house music taste. Defected’s values of inclusivity, togetherness and escapism on the dancefloor set the tone for the global scene and combined with the innovative talent of the Defected DJs, so this debut event at E1 promises to be a memorable one.
