Defected announce six-date tour of the USA With Catz ‘n Fogz, Darius Syrossian, Sam Divine & more

Label | 11.02.2020

Following their triumphant return stateside last November, Defected return to the USA to bring one of the world’s most established and long-running house music labels to a number of the country’s hottest clubs and festivals. Enlisting a selection of the label’s brightest stars, Catz ‘N Dogz, Darius Syrossian, Ferreck Dawn, Monki and Sam Divine are among the artists joining the tour, alongside label boss Simon Dunmore.

Kicking off with a debut show at the esteemed SXSW festival, Defected will bring label mainstays Sam Divine, Monki and Ferreck Dawn to the Texan capital. Surrounded by some of the industry’s most forward-thinking creatives, SXSW is a celebration of innovation and artistry where the London based imprint is sure to feel at home. Defected then head to the Winter Music Conference in Miami for an all-day affair at one of the hottest beachfront locations, the Shore Club Hotel. With an all-star line-up of Amine Edge & DANCE, Catz ‘N Dogz, Darius Syrossian, Ferreck Dawn, Monki, OFFAIAH, Roger Sanchez, Sam Divine, Simon Dunmore (+ more TBA) it is sure to be a highlight of the conference.  

Defected will also return to legendary Chicago club Smartbar on the tour, described as “the beating heart of the city’s music scene,” and one of Chi Town’s best loved venues. Sam Divine and Monki will play alongside Smartbar regular Deepsmith as part of the venue’s DAPHNE initiative, where the venue put on a month-long showcase of female and non-binary talent in honour of electronic music pioneer Daphne Oram. Sam and Monki will then head to San Diego (venue TBA) with Ferreck Dawn for another night of exceptional house music across the country on the West Coast. For the penultimate date of the tour, Defected make their anticipated return to NYC, taking over the expansive warehouse space Elsewhere in the vibrant Bushwick district of Brooklyn with Sam Divine and Monki and NYC DJ Ant Larock joining the bill. For the final date of the tour, Monki will head to San Francisco alongside David Penn, heading to warehouse-style venue Halcyon, an unmissable after-dark location where some truly memorable moments were created during last year’s tour.
