in the house
ITH Records, acronim for In The House, established by Simon Dunmore is affiliated to Defected Records and specialises in mixed compilations.
Simon Dunmore is Defected; plain and simple. Without him, one of the world’s longest-standing and most highly respected house music labels would not exist, and the current landscape of electronic music would appear that little bit flatter. Rapidly approaching its 15th anniversary, few labels have consistently operated at such a high level as Defected Records, due in no small part to the drive, determination and A&R talent of its owner and founder.
Defected is probably the one and only label that carried House music's legacy into the 21st century. It preserved its history while continuing a new one, bridging the gap across generations of music lovers and clubbers worldwide. Having released records from the likes of Ministers De-La Funk, Hatiras and Bob Sinclar, Defected has gained recognition the world over for it's dedication to the house and garage music industry.
Created back in 1999 – initially in partnership with Ministry of Sound – Defected Records’ success was immediate; their very first release – Soulsearcher’s ‘I Can’t Get Enough’ – reached No.8 in the UK singles charts, forming the foundation for the label's future successes and musical direction. Soon after came a No.1 single in the shape of Roger Sanchez's 'Another Chance', with further release milestones arriving in the form of Bob Sinclar's 'Love Generation' and 'World, Hold On' and Kings of Tomorrow’s seminal ‘Finally’ as well as more recent anthems such as Dennis Ferrer's 'Hey Hey' and the ubiquitous 'Coma Cat' by Tensnake.
Fundamentally, Dunmore is a long time music enthusiast who has been fortunate enough to make his passion his vocation. And fortunately for us, he continues to inject every ounce of that passion into Defected and everything the label stands for. Simon Dunmore is Defected; long may he continue to be so.
