Details: Defected Records continues to celebrate its 10 years In The House with the release of ‘Defected Clubland Adventures Vol 2’ featuring both upfront and classic releases by the world’s biggest and best known international house producers.

Defected Records is the British independent dance music label that has regularly surpassed the majors with its releases. It constantly presents records that grow organically from the underground which later become huge universal hits. It has a vast online community that stretches to every continent and its events schedule takes in (almost) every major city making it truly global. It’s now ready to release the second in the commemorative album series – Clubland Adventures Vol 2.

This year Defected celebrates its tenth birthday. In that time there have been some unforgettable moments. Hitting No.1 in the UK with Roger Sanchez’s 'Another Chance', or the time that Kings of Tomorrow 'Finally' was first played on a dance floor by Sandy Rivera at The Ministry of Sound.

Reading Defected’s early discography, it reads like a roll call of all the most prolific producers from the late 90's and 00’s. As a label it quickly stamped its signature sound on club culture and developed some of today’s best known producers and DJs. Junior Jack, Bob Sinclar, Sandy Rivera and Masters At Work all grew with the label from the start and helped forge the distinctive soul, funk and disco flavoured groove that was to be later nicknamed the ‘Defected’ global house sound.

To celebrate this landmark achievement, the labels biggest musical moments have been brought together in two commemorative collections entitled ‘Clubland Adventures Vol 2’. With the original released last February, this second set contains a further 46 original and remixed classics from the past 10 years.

It’s all presented in a boxed 3 x CD package mixed by Simon Dunmore, featuring major releases including; MAW presents India 'To Be In Love' (Full Intention Vocal), Soul Central featuring Kathy Brown 'Strings Of Life' (Martijn Ten Velden & Mark Knight Toolroom Mix), Funkerman 'Speed Up' (ATFC's 0-60 Extended Mix), Martin Solveig 'Everybody' (Original Mix) and a host of other huge Defected Records signature tracks.

You’ll find productions from Michael Gray, DJ Spen, Chocolate Puma, DJ Gregory, Copyright, Dennis Ferrer, ATFC, Marc Evans, Hardsoul and Julien Jabre all names synonymous with classic Defected.

Alongside the musical history lesson is an extensive retrospective birthday book, featuring in-depth label biography, sleeve notes and Simon Dunmore’s (Defected Records founder and label head) personal moments be them high or low from Defected’s 10 years “In The House”.

Defected’s records have been extremely collectable throughout these ten years and we know that if you’re a dance music lover this album will simply be unmissable.
