To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Defected Records presents a series of extra special collaborative releases Together, integrating talent from the label’s storied past and the stars of its future, as legendary UKG pioneer Todd Edwards, Caribbean-Dutch duo Shermanology and UK band Rudimental come together for ‘Rain’. The three artists are household names in their own right, and now their ongoing friendship has resulted in this extra special record born out of ‘a place of love’. Todd’s history with Defected is well documented, and the relationship has grown exponentially since the acquisition of his back catalogue in 2021, decorated by frequent sets at the label’s landmark events and flagship festivals, culminating in a Deluxe Edition of his House Masters compilation featuring remixes from modern house and garage legends. One such remix includes Andy and Dorothy Sherman as Shermanology, with their hearty mix of UKG, Caribbean and soul influences permeating Todd’s ‘Show Me A Sign’. The duo made their highly anticipated Defected debut in 2023 with ‘Sometimes’, a record that received major radio play globally and soundtracked the summer that followed. They are joined by Rudimental, the Platinum selling band whose success in both underground and commercial scenes is widely respected, earning UK #1’s and showcasing their new era sound; the group first teased this collaboration at Defected’s ambitious 2024 livestream celebrating its 25th Anniversary, featuring 25 DJs playing B2B. Throughout the bright and uplifting release, ‘Rain’, Todd’s unmistakeable signature sound blends with Shermanology’s joyous vocals and production plus Rudimental’s underground electronic style for a match made in heaven; a seminal release in the Defected catalogue and a triumph of its recently launched Together series.
