For the last decade, Defected Records’ annual Miami compilations have been dedicated to unearthing and championing up-and-coming house talent, and ‘Defected In The House Miami 2014’ is no exception as the baton is taken on by possibly three of the scene’s brightest stars: Andrea Oliva, Paolo Rocco and NICe7.
Here they deliver their own unique takes on the sound of Miami 2014 in three mixes that feature tracks and remixes from the likes of Henrik Schwarz, Âme, Shlomi Aber, Larry Heard, Kris Wadsworth, Deetron, tINI, Mr. G, Pirupa and many more.
Andrea Oliva, Paolo Rocco and NICe7 have been making respective names for themselves on the house underground. Last year was Andrea Oliva's most successful to date. Resident for Ushuaia's ANTS party for the 2103 season he also topped the Beatport charts with his remix of Luciano's ‘Rise Of Angels’ which became one of Cadenza's biggest selling records to date.
Born Canadian of Italian decent, Paolo Rocco first made his mark as a DJ in the Montreal house music scene and has since gone on to see his various productions and remixes supported by Damian
Lazarus, Nic Fanciulli, DJ Sneak and Maya Jane Coles to name just a few.
For almost a decade Italian duo NICe7 have been releasing music on labels such as Noir Music, Suara and Great Stuff, while in 2013 they performed at major electronic music events including Miami Winter Music Conference, Amsterdam Dance Event, and Berlin Music Days.
The three mixes move from deep, dubby grooves through to more dancefloor-ready house jams with plenty of vocal tracks scattered along the way; just what you’d expect from Defected.
It’s out 23 February on ITH.
