Family present Defected in the House featuring Simon Dunmore

  • Defected Records – need we say more? On the 11th June Defected Records' head honcho Simon Dunmore brings his hugely successful In The House tour to Australia for the 1st time. January 1st 1999, the beginning of a new year and the birth of Defected records. The brainchild of Simon Dunmore, Defected was conceived with partner Janet Bell, after the closure and subsequent take over of A&M, the major that was their employer at the time. Simon sensed the time was right for a more challenging beginning. “Starting our own label was like a natural progression. We’d kind of come to the end of the road with majors; it felt like the right time to do something for ourselves”.
