The store has a wide array of Defected merchandise, a memorabilia exhibition and of course, the full catalogue of releases. The store will also be home to a number of surprise guest DJ appearances.

We went for a look around last week and were treated to in-store appearances from Secondcity, Sonny Fodera, Trevor Jackson and the legendary Kenny Dope. 

Check out our photos from the day below and look out for an upcoming interview with Defected founder Simon Dunmore in the next few days.

Next up was the legendary, Kenny Dope


After Kenny, Sonny Fodera took over soundtrack duties

Finally, man of the moment, Secondcity took to the decks for a B2B set with Sonny to see out the evening

You can party with the Defected crew in person when they take over Ministry of Sound with Nic Fancuilli on 28th June.
