Defected drops lineup for first edition of Defected Malta

The team at Defected have recently released the lineup for the inaugural edition of Defected Malta.

Kicking off on Friday 7th October 2022 for a long weekend of parties (3 days & 2 nights), expect a jam-packed schedule of club shows, boat parties and events at unique off-the-grid locations, with stages curated by Defected, Glitterbox, Classic Music Company, Sondela and 4 To The Floor.

As we’ve come to expect from the UK house label, the lineup is second-to-none. Over 50 DJs are scheduled to play, with headliners including Basement Jaxx (DJ set), Carl Craig, David Morales, Eats Everything, Gorgon City, Groove Armada (DJ set) and Kerri Chandler.

More announcements are coming soon regarding boat parties and additional events around the island.

More about Defected

Simon Dunmore’s Defected is the great success story of UK dance music. For 20+ years, it’s been dedicated to the finest in house, from its label and numerous associated imprints, to its events and festivals.

After a decade working in club promotions and A&R for the majors, he founded Defected Records on 1 January, 1999. The plan was to establish the UK’s answer to Mark Finkelstein and Gladys Pizarro’s legendary New York imprint Strictly Rhythm. You could say that he has achieved that.

Thanks to Dunmore’s keen A&R savvy, which has over the years secured releases and forged enduring friendships with Masters At Work, Bob Sinclar, Dennis Ferrer, Roger Sanchez, Kevin Saunderson and Todd Terry, Defected has made an indelible imprint on British dance music.

To Be In Love’; ‘At Night’; ‘Finally’; ‘Another Chance’: all tracks knowable by name alone. To call it the most influential UK house label of all time would be entirely acceptable.
