You can catch Defected Records this week in the pop up units, here's what's going down!

Tell us about who you are and what you do?

We’re an independent record label, events company and artist management agency specialising in all things ‘house’. Established by Simon Dunmore in 1999 and based in Shoreditch, we bridge the gap across generations of music lovers and clubbers worldwide.

Which song best sums up your brand?

Our records are a bit like our children – we couldn’t possible pick a favourite ;)

What can we expect from your stay at BOXPARK?

Exclusive threads from our DStore including the Defected logo Ts and sweats, plus some hard-to-find vinyl rarities from the vaults, not to mention all the latest Defected cuts on CD.

It wouldn’t be a Defected pop-up without some shapes being thrown, so on Thursday 1st December Sam Divine will be throwing down with Luke Solomon on the upstairs deck at Boxpark. Complimentary dancing juice will come courtesy of Desperados.

Which piece from your current collection is your favourite?

We’d have to say the brand new logo sweats in the 4 To The Floor range. Repping the iconic house music labels of Chicago, New York and London these handsome beasts definitely bring the analogue vibes.

What’s the best reason to come to Shoreditch for a shopping spree?

Other than it being the home of Defected HQ?

Shoreditch has everything from high-end streetwear boutiques to flea market vintage stalls. Throw in some amazing street food and independent coffee shops and you’ve got everything you need for some serious retail therapy.

What’s your top Shoreditch tip?

The graffiti is insanely good in Shoreditch. If you wander around the corner of Great Eastern St, there’s an original by street artist Stik that is worthy of an Instagram or two.

What does the future hold for your brand?

It’s simple; we continue to bring the full spectrum of house music to the world through our events, including the second year of our festival Defected Croatia in 2017, and release music with producers who genuinely excite and inspire us.
