Spencer Parker’s latest track, ‘To The Edge’ is as simple as it is effective, with its groove underpinning its riff and vocal. Paired back and Euro-influenced, the track is from a DJ/producer who has grown his profile by turning his hand to a myriad of disco, house and techno styles.

Moby lands on Defected for the very first time with ‘You & Me’, a collaborative package with Anfisa Letyago, featuring remixes from Deetron and Girls of the Internet.

Galantis recently dropped their first new track of the year, ‘One, Two & 3’, now available via Big Beat Records.

Jon Carter has released his first album for 25 years, after re-inventing himself in various guises outside of the music world and being away from music for over a decade.

The album sees him return to the fray with tracks ranging from discerning styles of house music, acid and techno to discursive electronica.

Alexander Robotnick gets set to release the third album of the "Simple Music" series: ‘Kind of...

For some reason, the Jack Said What (JSW) crew can’t help saying Chad Jackson’s name affectionately. It probably stems from the time that JSW associate Klaus Blatter immortalised Chad in one of his songs, his origin story ‘Ball Bearing Factory’. Chad reputedly met Klaus in the 1980s, when Chad was a resident at the Hacienda nightclub in Manchester.
Defected and Glitterbox recently revealed their line-ups for the forthcoming Miami Music Week. After an apparent sold-out event at the Sagamore Hotel on South Beach in 2023, Defected returns again to Miami on 21 March in collaboration with Epic Pool Parties.
