Next Thursday we return from our jollies in Ibiza back to our London base with a special Defected Croatia takeover helmed by Sonny Fodera and Franky Rizardo..
Now that we’ve left the sunny climes of the White Isle, we’re craving another slice of sunshine action, and Defected’s Croatia festival looks like the perfect option. Taking place in Tisno’s paradisiac The Garden Resort across August 10 to 15, the six day party is headlined by artists such as MK, Eats Everything and Kenny Dope.
Boat party tickets are close to selling out, full festival tickets are running very low, and day tickets are now on sale. Head to Defected Croatia’s website to make the purchase.
Two other artists on the bill are Sonny Fodera and Franky Rizardo, who will be getting us in the mood with a 90 minute back-to-back session in The Lab LDN. The duo are Defected favourites, with over 40 combined releases on Defected Records and a total of 16 appearances at the label’s 2017 Ibiza residency this summer, and are sure to kick the room off with an irresistible blend of fist-pumping house.
They’re each well-versed in making and spinning tracks that fire up a dancefloor: Franky’s ‘Same Man’ is currently the longest running Beatport #1 of 2017, and Sonny’s ‘Take It Easy’ remix with Mat.Joe held the title for longest running top spot in 2016.
