With the summer season already in full swing, we're buzzing with anticipation for this latest installment of pure house music magic.
Defected has been a consistent hot ticket on the White Isle, always drawing in a solid blend of locals and tourists. Trust us when we say, from the moment the doors swing open at midnight, the dance floor will be a flurry of footwork right up until the lights come on at 6am.
Just as we've come to expect from Defected, they're bringing a line-up that'll make every house music lover's heart skip a beat: Alex Mills, Dunmore Brothers, Mele, Route 94, and Sam Divine. These Defected favorites are guaranteed have the decks on fire and the dance floor filled from beginning to end.
The music is just one part of what makes Defected at Eden Ibiza such a popular party. The brand has always been extremely proud and protective of the atmosphere, the energy, and the inclusivity.
Defected is renowned for its ethos: "In our house, we are all equal." And that sentiment permeates every inch of the dance floor.
It's not just about having a good time, it's about coming together, being part of the Defected family, and losing yourself in the unifying power of house music.
For those of you worried about the price tag on this unforgettable night, fear not! Defected remains one of the most affordable club nights on the island. You're getting an experience that's priceless without burning a hole in your pocket.
The enduring popularity of Defected in San Antonio, its successful seasons at Pacha, its past presence at the now-defunct Booom!, and its continuous stint at Eden Ibiza, are all testaments to the legendary status of these parties. It's no wonder that every Friday night, the queues wrap around the block!
This isn't just another night out. It's an experience, a feeling, a vibe. It's Defected. So, mark your calendars, grab your tickets, and get ready to dance your heart out at Eden Ibiza on Friday, June 30.
In recent years, Alex Mills has become a prominent figure in the electronic music scene, collaborating with top artists like Basement Jaxx and Camelphat, and earning the title of 'producers choice' by Mixmag. She made headlines in 2021 as the face of Amazon's 'Sound of Modern House Music' playlist and had her tracks selected twice as Annie Mac's Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1, demonstrating her prowess as a DJ, artist, and writer.
The music most definitely runs in the family. Brothers Lucas and Louie, better known as Dunmore Brothers, are the sons of Defected’s original head honcho and have made waves in the electronic music scene over the last few years, working seamlessly together behind the decks.
With global clubs and festivals under their belt, the boys are currently upping their skills in production and A&R, showing signs of becoming truly unstoppable.
Melé will drop his eclectic mix of tribal-tinged funky house, Brazilian beats, and Chicago sounds to the Eden dancefloor. His ability to read and play to different crowds is evident through the array of stages he has headlined, from Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival to the legendary elrow in Barcelona and EDC Las Vegas.
Route 94 is an English record producer and remixer from Richmond, London, initially known for producing dubstep under the alias Dream and collaborating with artists like Skream, Benga, and Katy B. He later shifted towards house music, gaining significant recognition with his hit single "My Love".
Sam Divine started off as part of the Defected street team and has built her way up through the ranks, now thriving as the host of the Defected radio show as well as an integral part of the brand's DJ roster. The ‘First Lady of Defected’ shows no signs of slowing down and will be bringing her infectious energy back to Eden throughout the summer of 2023.
