Pacha Sydney, presented by Heineken, will play host to series of mammoth Defected in the House parties, bringing together two of the world’s biggest forces in dance music today. The Defected series will kick off with a Pool Club day party on Saturday 15 February, featuring American house legend MK and Defected’s founder Simon Dunmore.
MK, the phenomenon who conquered the underground music and pop world, has recently returned to the scene as one of dance music’s most in demand producer/DJs. Revolutionising music in the early 1990s with records like ‘Always’ and ‘Burning’, he established his unique style and set the blueprint for the era’s house music. These early club hits were followed by his seminal remix of Nightcrawler’s ‘Push The Feeling On’ which reached No. 3 in the UK charts in 1995 and went on to sell over 3 million copies. Twenty years later, MK still champions a sound that is as unique and relevant as ever, with his ubiquitous remix of Storm Queen's ‘Look Right Through’ going straight to Number 1 in the Official UK Singles Charts late last year.
Joining MK is Simon Dunmore, Defected Records’ founder and one of the most respected A&R men in house. As well as being a curator of talent, Dunmore is one of the most technically-gifted house DJs, with an impressive career spanning three decades. An Outstanding Achievement award presented at Pete Tong’s International Music Summit in 2012 saw the industry celebrate his priceless contribution to dance music.
Following this first party at Pacha Sydney, Defected in the House will bring further shows to ivy throughout the year. Details to be announced soon.
