Biography

Defected Records is a UK record label specialising in house music.

History:
Established in 1999 by former AM:PM and Cooltempo A&R man Simon Dunmore, Defected’s first release was Soulsearcher’s “I Can’t Get Enough” which reached No.5 in the UK singles chart. This early success was followed up with Roger Sanchez’s “Another Chance”, which hit No.1 in the UK singles chart in 2001. To date, Defected has released more than 300 singles from artists such as Bob Sinclar, Kings of Tomorrow, Dennis Ferrer, Martin Solveig, Copyright and ATFC as is seen as one of the world’s leading specialist labels in house music. In addition to the 2001 No.1 one from Sanchez, Defected has released a number of records that have had a significant impact on the house scene. Kings of Tomorrow’s “Finally” was voted the 31st best track of 2000–2010 by leading electronic dance music portal Resident Advisor, and is still a regular feature of DJ sets to this day. Bob Sinclar’s 2005 track “Love Generation” reached No.12 in the UK singles chart and was a massive hit all over Europe and in Australia, achieving one of the longest runs of all time in the German singles charts and going on to sell over 1 million copies worldwide. More recently, Defected have found success with underground hits like Dennis Ferrer’s “Hey Hey”.
