As the international dance music industry prepares to pack its bags and head to the non-stop party that is the Miami Winter Music Conference, Defected presents the latest must-have Defected In the House compilation, Miami 2014, available from Friday, February 28th through etcetc.
Having just hosted the first Defected In The House party for 2014 with an unforgettable pool party at Pacha Sydney - featuring house music legend MK and Defected head honcho Simon Dunmore - Ministry of Sound’s sister label etcetc will release the first of a series of the world-famous Defected compilations in a deal that encompasses both Defected releases and touring in Australia.
Dedicated to unearthing and championing up-and-coming house talent, Defected In The House Miami 2014 is taken on by three of the scenes brightest stars; Andrea Oliva, Paulo Rocco and NiCe7. Here they deliver their own unique takes on the sound of Miami 2014 in three mixes that feature tracks and remixes from the likes of Henrik Schwarz, Âme, Shlomi Aber, Larry Heard, Kris Wadsworth, Deetron, tINI, Mr. G, Pirupa and many more.
Last year was Andrea Oliva's most successful to date. Resident for Ushuaia's wildly successful Ants party, he also topped the Beatport charts with his remix of Luciano's 'Rise Of Angels' which became one of Cadenza's biggest selling records to date.
Born Canadian of Italian decent, Paolo Rocco first made his mark as a DJ in the Montreal house music scene and has since gone on to see his various productions and remixes supported by industry heavyweights Damian Lazarus, Nic Fanciulli, DJ Sneak and Maya Jane Coles to name just a few.
For almost a decade Italian duo NiCe7 have been releasing music on respected labels such as Noir Music, Suara and Great Stuff, while in 2013 they performed at major electronic music events including Miami Winter Music Conference, Amsterdam Dance Event, and Berlin Music Days, championing their original blend of techy, groove-led house at the world’s leading venues.
The three mixes move from deep, dubby grooves through to more dancefloor ready house jams with plenty of considered vocal tracks scattered along the way; the epitome of what Defected has come to represent.
