Back for its eleventh instalment, For The Love Of House is Defected’s series collecting the classic house music records that have defined the genre over the past thirty years. Ranging from deep grooves to perennial floor-fillers, these seminal cuts from the label archives of Defected, Strictly Rhythm, 4th Floor, Salsoul and more sound as fresh today as when they first devastated dancefloors. A hand-picked selection from Defected’s founder Simon Dunmore and A&R Andy Daniell bring together vocal anthems like Powerhouse feat. Duane Harden’s ‘What You Need’ and Barbara Tucker’s ‘Stay Together’ with iconic instrumentals such as Silicone Soul’s ‘Right On!’ and ‘The Horn Song’ by The Don (a DJ Pierre alias). Meanwhile, house music royalty such as Danny Tenaglia, Masters At Work, MK, Sandy Rivera, to name but a few, populate the remainder of the tracklist.

With 30 tracks presented in full-length, unmixed format, along with two exclusive DJ mixes, “Defected presents For The Love Of House Volume 11” represents incredible value for DJs, dedicated house music aficionados and newcomers to the genre alike, cementing the series’ standing as a definitive guide to House.
