Established in 1999, Defected Records’ success was immediate; their very first release – Soulsearcher’s ‘I Can’t Get Enough’ – reached #8 in the UK singles charts, forming the foundation for the label’s future successes and musical direction. Soon after came a #1 single in the shape of Roger Sanchez’s ‘Another Chance’, and the successes have continued to flow in, placing Simon in a unique position of influence and authority. In fact, his years of hard work were acknowledged at the International Music Summit (IMS) in Ibiza in 2012, when he picked up the Outstanding Achievement award.

The recipe for success has been simple and effective; a good helping of adaptability and sprinklings of young talent together with a slice of established names mixed with a staunch belief in Dunmore’s core ethos and never waning from that outlook to try and cater for what’s considered ‘trendy’. It has helped Defected to amass a loyal clientele who understand exactly what the label stands for, quality house music for a wider audience. This includes the sub-label, DFTD, which supports the next generation of up-and-coming underground producers.
