Defected presents Loco Dice In The House is one of, if not the most unexpected collaboration of recent times. This explosive dance music compilation features tracks and remixes from artists such as Kyle Hall, Skudge, Glimpse, Diplo, Marcel Dettmann and Dice himself as well as a hand-picked selection of unreleased Desolat exclusives; this is an incredible release from an undisputed legend.
This may seem like an unlikely combination at first glance, but when you think about it a bit it seems a much more obvious fit with both artist and label having fought to promote the best in house and techno for over a decade. Looking back at Loco Dice’s residencies at some of the worlds biggest clubs, such as DC10 and Amnesia it was one of the most talked about summer moves when he announced this year when he returns to Ibiza, that he’d be bringing his ‘Used & Abused’ party brand to Ushuaia. There is good reason why he has regularly been voted in the top end of all thr major end of year polls for the last three years and Defected presents Loco Dice In The House is the next step in a career that has been littered with unpredictable moves, backed up by glittering moments of genius.
Check out what Dice had to say about the collaboration below “Defected is one of the labels that have always been in my record box. I have an entire section dedicated to them in my collection and I grew up with the label’s history. I think what they’re doing at the moment with combining a lot of different styles and bringing together a diverse range of artists is great. Defected has the freedom to do this, unlike a lot of labels.
Of course I knew the name Simon [Dunmore] for years but we never had the chance to meet. Then last year at IMS Simon just sat down to talk to me; initially it wasn’t about business, just music.
Eventually he asked me if I could do something for Defected, with as much freedom as I needed. For me it’s a great opportunity, and I always take compilations so seriously, as seriously as I would an album. I’m so happy with the results.”
Defected presents Loco Dice In The House exemplifies the open-minded attitude to electronic music embraced by both label and artist, it is set to come out 21st July (2CD and digital) on Defected Records
