Defected marks 17 years with huge compilation 'This Is Our House'

Defected Records is reaching its 17th year of bringing dancefloors the best house music, giving exposure to talented producers, and showing other record labels how it's done. The imprint is celebrating by curating a compilation entitled, We Are Defected. This Is Our House. Running as an anthology and a musical history lesson into the world of Defected. There are four CDs packed with classic and current original tracks and remixes, with more just out on digital.

It includes the first single released on the label in 1998, Soulsearcher's "Can’t Get Enough," an edit of the Kings Of Tomorrow - "Finally", Âme's 2006 already classic "Rej", and Solomun's game-changing mix of "Around". As you'd expect, Dennis Ferrer features multiple times, with his unforgettable remixes of "The Cure & The Cause" and Nick Curly's "Underground" included. Plus there's music from the likes of Carl Craig, Todd Terry (pictured), Henrik Schwarz, Deetron, Flashmob, and the artist list goes on.
