Defected January Sampler

Defected drop the latest JANUARY 2021 Sampler that’s loaded with house heaters!

Marco Faraone & Greeko ‘Armaghetton’ (Jansons Remix)

Coming at the end of 2020, Defected hit ‘Armaghetton‘, delivered courtesy of Italian tech titan Marco Faraone and rising star Greeko, was one of the stand out releases of the year. Complete with a full-throttle bassline and hip-house inspired vocal, the confident house cut was quick to capture the attention of key tastemakers, supported by the likes of Hot Since 82, CamelPhat and BBC Radio 1’s Danny Howard, Annie Mac and Pete Tong. Now Jansons, the London-based DJ and producer behind club heaters ‘Switch’ and ‘Less Ordinary’ steps up to remix ‘Armaghetton’. Lending his signature club-ready flare, this lively, energy-filled mix brims with peaktime dancefloor energy.

Blaze featuring Palmer Brown ‘Do You Remember House?’ (Bob Sinclar & The Cube Guys Remix)

West London’s Slip ‘n’ Slide was one of the UK’s original house imprints. Starting in 1994 with early releases from artists such as Blaze, X-Press 2, Masters At Work and Kings Of Tomorrow, they set the benchmark for house music in the UK. Kevin Hedge and Josh Milan (aka Blaze) were one of Slip ‘n’ Slide’s most prolific acts, with ‘Do You Remember House?’ written and produced by the pair. One of a number of records where Hedge playfully dons his Palmer Brown alter ego for vocal duties, this new remix package showcases this enduring classic with three new versions. Up first, Italian duo The Cube Guys re-work Bob Sinclar’s classic remix, maintaining Bob’s signature Parisian flare with a modern edge for today’s dancefloors.

John ‘Julius’ Knight & Roland Clark ‘The Underground’ (Brian Tappert / Marco Faraone Remix)

A familiar face to Soulfuric, DJ John ‘Julius’ Knight worked closely with Brian Tappert and Marc Pomeroy on various collaborations including Cleptomaniacs. Originally released in 2011, ‘The Underground’ saw John team up with New Jersey legend Roland Clark on this spiritual house groove, which now receives the remix treatment from three esteemed selectors for today’s dancefloors. Up first, it seemed only fitting Brian Tappert would provide a remix, delivering a dose of his signature grooves to the package. Finally, Italian tech titan Marco Faraone delivers his remix, raw and soundsystem-ready as he utilises Roland’s vocal to hypnotic effect.
