Starting as they mean to go on, Defected will host Printworks’ first event of 2020 on New Year’s Day, bringing in the new decade with a spectacular all day affair. Coming as part of a New Year’s double-header, the label’s disco counterpart Glitterbox will take over the 6,000-capacity venue on NYE the night before.
Now joining the stellar line-up of Armand Van Heldnen, Sam Divine, Low Steppa, Ferreck Dawn, Roberto Surace and Simon Dunmore is rising star of the label Endor, whose infectious Defected debut ’Pump It Up’ has gone from club heater to certified hit in a few short months. With its success confirmed by playlist additions on Radio 1, Kiss FM and most recently Capital, Endor’s adrenaline-fueled track also came in at #21 on the UK Top 40 this weekend, affirming its crossover success.
The Brighton born producer’s prolific nature of working, fueled by an insatiable appetite for creating killer dancefloor cuts, has earned him high profile fans from Skream to Chris Lake, with an impressive catalogue of releases stacking up in his name, but ‘Pump It Up’ has undoubtedly been Endor’s biggest release to date.
Now with over 20 million streams, other highlights for the release so far include reaching #1 on Beatport and #3 on Traxsource, #2 in the Shazam UK Discovery Chart and being featured as BBC Radio 1’s Tune Of The Weekend.
There is no doubt this New Year’s Day event will be an unforgettable entry into 2020, as two trailblazers of London’s nightlife come together to bring in the new decade. For more information and remaining tickets head to: defected.com/events.
