Defected Nov Sampler

Defected drop an essential Summer sampler loaded with some incredible Housers!

Jon Cutler featuring E-Man – It’s Yours (Kyri Markou Remix) [Big Love]

A classic from Defected’s legendary catalogue, ‘It’s Yours’ by Brooklyn’s Jon Cutler gets the Big Love treatment from Ibiza favourite Kyri Markou. 20 years after the original became a dancefloor staple, this remix takes the jazzy sensibilities of Cutler’s original and ups the tempo, reimagining the bassline to achieve new levels of groove.

Managing to sound both modern and timeless is no easy feat, but Markou pulls it off by ensuring that the iconic vocal line stays steadfast to recharge the spirits of avid club-goers. As turntables scratch and the sub-bass booms, this fresh new take on a classic is one that you don’t want to miss.

Key To Life featuring Marc Evans – God’s Light (Tommy’s Extended Vocal Blessing) [Sub-Urban Records]

A favourite of passionate house music fans looking for something different, Key To Life (one of the many monikers of Sub-Urban owner Tommy Musto) is back with another distinctive club record – this time packed with padded synth goodness.

The New York legend keeps us grounded with a funky bass whilst otherworldly background vocals transport us to a sacred and ethereal world. Marc Evans is the preacher of this realm, taking us on a spiritual journey with Key To Life’s unique approach to production providing a club experience like no other.

Leo Guardo & Sobantwana – Hold On [Sondela]

Sondela’s latest release ‘Hold On’ is the perfect brooding accompaniment for the longer darker nights ahead of us. Italian born producer Leo Guardo sets the scene with atmospheric production complimenting the South-African Sobantwana’s delicate vocals that glide around in free time.

As the deep-Afro-house track progresses, the skilled Guardo builds to a striking synth resolution. The vocals match this massive production effortlessly, before they eventually subside to reveal a unique techy beat to see us out.
