Simon Dunmore is Defected; plain and simple. Without him, one of the world’s longest-standing and most highly respected house music labels would not exist, and the current landscape of electronic music would appear that little bit flatter. Few labels have consistently operated at such a high level as Defected Records, due in no small part to the drive, determination and A&R talent of its owner and founder.
Created back in 1999 – initially in partnership with Ministry of Sound – Defected Records’ success was immediate; their very first release – Soulsearcher’s ‘I Can’t Get Enough’ – reached No.8 in the UK singles charts, forming the foundation for the label's future successes and musical direction. Soon after came a No.1 single in the shape of Roger Sanchez's 'Another Chance', with further release milestones arriving in the form of Bob Sinclar's 'Love Generation' and 'World, Hold On' and Kings of Tomorrow’s seminal ‘Finally’ as well as more recent anthems such as Dennis Ferrer's 'Hey Hey' and the ubiquitous 'Coma Cat' by Tensnake.
As well as being a curator of talent, Dunmore is also one of the most respected and technically-gifted house DJs, having appeared at pretty much every club of note in a career spanning three decades. “Past a certain age it perhaps isn't the done thing to be at a club till 6AM” admits Dunmore “but DJing keeps me on the edge. I don't want to get too comfortable, don't want to slip into middle age. Playing pushes me to listen to more music, it keeps me involved.”
Fundamentally, Dunmore is a long time music enthusiast who has been fortunate enough to make his passion his vocation. And fortunately for us, he continues to inject every ounce of that passion into Defected and everything the label stands for. Simon Dunmore is Defected; long may he continue to be so.
