Having taken a year’s sabbatical from the clubbing capital, Defected Records delighted its global fan base when it announced it would be returning for Defected Ibiza 2017, taking up residency in Eden, San Antonio every Sunday night. Having made a spectacular start, filling the famous club on the opening and every week since, it returns on July 30 with Sonny Fodera back2back with Low Steppa, Sam Divine, Mat.Joe and Manu Gonzalez for the latest episode.

Defected has enjoyed a long standing love affair with Ibiza, from its early days in El Divino to Pacha, Booom and latterly Amnesia. The principled house label has consistently filled whichever of the iconic Ibiza venues it finds itself in. With a loyal fanbase that comes from all over the world to check out their heroes, the venue itself is not important. That said, in Eden, Defected Ibiza 2017 has found a collaborator very much on the up. The venue boasts a band new void sound system, state-of-the-art lighting and a weekly schedule for this summer packed with talented promoters. It’s a great fit and, having enjoyed several roadblock parties since its opening one that the Ibiza crowd has taken to.

Sunday July 30 sees a return to Ibiza for Sonny Fodera and Low Steppa, the duo going back to back to finish off the month after making a huge impact at the start of July. There’s nothing quite like two artists at the top of their creative game going head to head in a musical battle, there’s only ever one winner – the dancefloor. Sam Divine needs no introduction to the Defected crowd, either within Ibiza or around the world. ON the island she has been omnipresent this summer, guiding each party, as the voice and talent behind the Defected podcast, she regularly delivers our house music fix. having made an impression already this summer, Mat.Joe, AKA Berlin based Matze and Johannes, are popular members of the ever-growing Defected family. The final piece of the puzzle belongs to Ibiza born artist Manu Gonzalez, a DJ/ producer that was raised on the clubbing capital, with house music in his blood and an acute understanding of what it takes to move an island dancefloor.
