In about six weeks time, on Saturday May 25, Defected’s Ibiza 2013 season kicks off in style with Dennis Ferrer, Yousef, FCL accompanied by ‘It’s You’ vocalist Lady Linn and Simon Dunmore. After a top performance at the label’s New Year’s Eve party and, more recently, at London’s Ministry of Sound, Dennis Ferrer is their chosen headliner to start the season in Ibiza with a bang.
Yousef is another DJ and producer who has been increasingly involved with Defected over the past few months. 2012’s ‘Beg’ was met with great feedback late last year, while his latest EP ‘Think Twice’ alongside Alexander East looks set to follow in its predecessors footsteps. Through his countless DJs sets and famous Circus events, Yousef has established himself as a favourite of fans and fellow DJs alike.
Joining Ferrer and Yousef will be FCL, with ‘It’s You’ collaborator Lady Linn joining them for a live PA; the first time they have performed together in Ibiza. As the hype around ‘It’s You’ continues to build, this is a highly anticipated set. Defected founder Simon Dunmore will also be playing the Opening Party, overseeing the start of a season he believes will “push the perception of the ‘new’ Defected even further.”
The full season line-up will be released in the coming weeks, and features more than 30 artists including Duke Dumont, Disclosure, Dennis Ferrer, Noir, Nick Curly, Tensnake, MK, Skream, FCL, Simon Dunmore, Flashmob, Derrick Carter, Copyright and more.
