Defected Records : Defected in the East

Now in its fourth year, Sundown Festival returns to Norwich Showground on 29th to 31st August for three days of electronic music mayhem, featuring artists across the spectrum of dance music. Chart topping artists such as Ellie Goulding and John Newman grace the main stages, while more underground labels Ram records and Defected own the second stages providing only the finest quality drum and bass and house music. Massive names to look out for include Andy C, Wilkinson, Breach and MK to name a few.

Defected in the house are proud to be hosting the second stage throughout the Saturday line up, showcasing many ground-breaking names on the house music scene. Artists performing on the Defected stage include MK, Secondcity, Breach, Shadow Child, Copyright and Sam Divine. All widely known names for house devotees, these artists have been producing a diverse variety of show stopping tracks over the past few years. Performing at world famous clubs in Ibiza, the home of house right now, it’s an honour to have these artists performing out in Norwich, providing an Ibiza feel to Norfolk’s music scene. With Breach ‘Jack’ reaching number nine in the UK singles chart in 2013 and MK’s remix of Storm Queen ‘Look Right Through’ reaching number one on the UK singles and dance chart when released by Ministry later in the year, these artists have contributed massively to bringing house music onto what used to be a heavily dance music based chart in the UK and placing it amongst the likes of the biggest DJ’s and Producers across the globe.

Across the two days, the showground will erupt with multiple stages providing various genres from across the electronic music spectrum, showcasing arguably some of the best DJ’s and producers in music at the moment. Defected brings to Norfolk, a scene which is up & coming in this area. With few house nights in comparison to Birmingham, Nottingham and Manchester, exposing the greatest names in one powerfully influential line up could contribute massively to the start of a whole new experience in East Anglia.
