After an incredible sold-out New Year’s Day celebration, Defected returns to Printworks this Easter weekend on Saturday 11th April for an all-day affair soundtracked by the label’s hottest talent. Anticipated to be a highlight of the Printworks SS20 season, Kenny Dope, Inner City and Catz ‘N Dogz are among the artists Defected will be bringing to the press halls, as world-class house music and exceptional production take centre stage at this ‘no frills, just house’ party.
Defected is dedicated to championing both rising stars of the scene and household names with their line-ups, and April’s event makes no exception, enlisting legends like NYC mainstay and half of Masters At Work Kenny Dope, and a live performance from seminal Detroit trio Inner City, responsible for hits like ‘Good Life’ and ‘Big Fun’. Hot off the heels of his recent Defected releases and forthcoming House Masters compilation, David Penn will bring his signature piano-laced sounds to the event, along with enigmatic Polish duo Catz ‘N Dogz. Snatch! records founder Riva Starr will also be joining the line-up, and an array of the much-loved Defected residents like label head honcho Simon Dunmore, Sam Divine, Monki, Mambo Brothers and Jess Bays.
As a label, Defected continue to push the boundaries of modern house, but with an illustrious catalogue of classics from across their twenty-one years of releasing records, the programming also reflects its heritage roots, as sub-label 4 To The Floor take over the Dark Room once again, with Seamus Haji and Heller & Farley taking control of the decks.
There is no doubt this event will be an unforgettable bank holiday celebration, as two trailblazers of London’s nightlife come together. For more information head to https://defected.com/events.
