  • News Flash: There will be a special live gig open to all pre purchased ticket holders before the main club event. Special live event announced. Julie McKnight confirmed to perform ‘Finally’ and ‘Diamond Life’. Steve Edwards is confirmed to perform Bob Sinclars ‘World Hold On’ and Marc Evans ’The Way You Love Me’. Defected Records 10th birthday brings House music to LIFE with an all star 5 piece band and legendary vocalists. Start of 10th anniversary world tour at the Ministry of Sound. Defected is 10 years old on Jan 24th. It is widely known as the label that brought many of clubland’s best remembered underground classics with unforgettable tracks such as; Cleptomainiacs ‘All I do’, Soulsearcher’s ‘I Can’t Get Enough’, Ferrer and Sydenham ‘Sandcastles’, Fish Go Deep ‘The Cure and the Cause’ and KOT ‘Finally’. But in true Defected style they have planned a party with a mahoosive twist, just like the 100th release celebrations back in 2005, house classics will be brought to life by a special 5 piece band. Some of Defected’s biggest releases will be sung and played LIVE by the original recording artists. House labels rarely showcase their tracks live so this really is a once in a lifetime chance to see these artists performing together. Julie McKnight the voice behind KOT’s ‘Finally’ and Louie Vega’s ‘Diamond Life’ will be performing alongside Marc Evans singing ‘The Way You Love Me’. Tassita D’mour sings Copyright ‘He Is’, and new signing Yasmeen performs ‘Glad I Found U’ as well as Shovell’s insane performance of ‘Bulo’. The main club event showcases Defected’s biggest line-up since Miami ‘08 with special guest appearances from premier recording artists and DJ’s including Bob Sinclar, Junior Jack & Kid Crème, the Shapeshifters and ATFC. With ATFC alone being crowned House artist of the year by Beatportal and the chance to hear MC Spike (JJ & KC’s legendary MC) you know this is a must see event. This is Defected Record’s most ambitious celebration tour to date with 10 parties planned in 10 major cities across the globe, starting right here in London at the Ministry of Sound. The tour takes place in Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Singapore and culminates at the opening party of Pacha Ibiza ‘09. There is a second tour planned for later in the year. There is also a special anniversary CD mix released in Feb 09.
