Celebrating over a decade at the very forefront of Ibiza’s unique and unparalleled dance music scene, Defected In The House Ibiza 2013 is the latest in Defected’s peerless compilation series. Spread over 3CDs and taking in tracks and remixes from Loco Dice, Rachel Row, Steve Bug, Nick Curly, Guti, FCL, Kings of Tomorrow and David August, this is another essential collection from the world’s preeminent house music label.

Both literally and metaphorically, Ibiza represents Defected’s time in the sun. As the eyes of the dance music world collectively focus on a single, tiny island in the Mediterranean, DJs, producers and record labels alike all set out their musical stalls in an effort to provide the thousands of clubbers the best possible experience. It’s an environment in which Defected consistently thrives.

This year Defected has once again stepped up their game with residencies at two brand new White Isle venues. Defected In The House will bring a heavyweight line-up to Bomba Ibiza for Saturday nights, while Defected presents DFTD introduces a new concept to Ushuaia Tower with a free party on Mondays.

Consistently the strongest offering of the year, Defected’s Ibiza edition of their acclaimed In The House series once again defines the season, representing a true reflection of the musical direction of the White Isle. On the new mix, Defected founder Simon Dunmore has selected records that represent both the house heritage for which Defected is rightly known and respected, as well as further developing their reputation for introducing and nurturing exciting new talent.

“We are still a soul based record label although the soundbed for the songs we release changes as the House sound evolves” says Dunmore of his approach to this new undertaking. “There has been a reaction by some people to move away from the commercial dance scene and I think we have benefitted from that.”

Tracks of particular note that feature on the mix include the hotly anticipated Flashmob remix of FCL ‘It’s You’ – arguably the most talked-about record of recent memory – as well as the sublime ‘Follow The Step’ from emerging artist Rachel Row.

Elsewhere you’ll find the Gorge remix of David Keno ‘A Compliment’, Trickski ‘Wilderness’ (Genius of Time Remix) and Guti’s ‘Pray For Love’ (Guti Summer Loving Mix), all of which epitomise Dunmore’s eclectic approach to the compilation’s selections.

“I think that it is clichéd to call the album a journey” says Dunmore of the mix “but the vibes certainly progresses from a daytime beach party and sunset vibe into a more club based mix. There are many exclusives from the Defected schedule and our new DFTD imprint. All the recordings are special and contribute to a mix of which I am particularly proud.”

Defected In The House Ibiza 2013 is the first release to boast new artwork as part of a complete brand overhaul of the label. Conceptualised by world-renowned designer, DJ and producer Trevor Jackson, the rebrand includes a new logo, artwork direction and website, further details of which will be released over the coming weeks.

Defected In The House Ibiza 2013 is out 19th May
