The artists, DJ’s, producers, labels and scenes that inspired me since my youth, that compelled me to DJ, to promote events, to work in the music industry and eventually start my own label. A selection that will go someway to giving you an insight into the music I love and continues to influence everything we aspire to achieve at Defected Records, as we celebrate 20 years in the House!"

Across The Tracks Soul Show

wow, remember going to your do's Simon back in the day at a wine bar in Hayes (can't remember the name) and the Country Club near, the Polish War memorial. Everytime I get a bit of vinyl from defected, I always think of you and the "do's" back then, The Vision being the last 7" that jumped over to Aus. Used to go with Dave Morrison back in the day. Keep doing what you are doing it!!!
