About this item

The sixteenth edition of Defected’s vinyl series continues to commit the label’s biggest digital releases to wax. EP16 brings together four recent releases from Defected’s catalogue of world-class house. First up on the A-side is Claptone & Rune’s ‘Calabria’, a highly anticipated release from last summer thanks to its warm familiarity, big rubbery bassline and brassy saxophone hook that captivated dancefloors instantly. Similarly, Jack Back’s ‘Feeling’ has a hint of noughties nostalgia, ready to sweep dancefloors with a rave-ready bass and electrifying vocal. The B-side opens with Ibiza stalwart Marco Faraone’s ‘My Name’, featuring intoxicating vocals from Lolita Leopard; dripping with attitude. Closing out this club-focused collection is Payfone’s distinct ‘Day & Night’, featuring an orchestral approach to composition and a deep house groove that bursts in with ease.


Matt says: The mega house brand continues with its vinyl-only run of compilation 12"s. Love it or hate it, its been hard to escape that "Calabria" track (feel like it might be on the webuyanycar advert next). The rest of the EP's pretty tight too, with that Payfone track being a particular highlight. Check!
