DFTD is a new, breakout label to Defected Records focusing on fresh, new and undiscovered talent from around the globe - along with the occasional curveball release from established acts. DFTD complements its parent with a more diverse musical remit, releasing a broad range of electronic music, focussing on quality, discerning dance music.
This is the very first vinyl sampler from the label, showcasing three incredible forthcomings tracks, all due to drop on digital early in the summer. First up is Hope from Guti, a stunning Balearic cut from an Argentinian artist who has previously released his outstanding material on Crosstown, Cecile and Supplement Facts. Created with the White Isle in mind, it features a warm bottom end and the intoxicating vocal from Jason Hate’s ‘Pray For Love’; the much lauded track has been a staple of Guti’s sets for some time now and finally sees a release on DFTD. Mercury steps up next with a stripped-back, bass-driven version of Jonas Rathsman’s Tobago - the original mix of which was initially licensed to Chris Malinchak’s French Express label. Rounding things off is Forrest., and artist who shot to notoriety on labels including Noir Music, Souvenir and Gruuv. His inimitable production is characterised by its depth and warmth and Creep is a shining example of his skill.
