Sonny Fodera is In The House

House | Thursday 17th December 2015 | Christina

Having made Sonny Fodera a key part of their family in recent times, Defected now honour one of house music’s brightest current stars by asking him to make his entry into their hallowed In The House series. 
As anyone who has been to one of his shows anywhere in the world will attest, Sonny Fodera is a dance music superstar. In the last year he played Amnesia no fewer than six times, headlined club and festivals on most major continents, and released his music on Defected as well as Visionquest and Dirtybird. 
For his mix, Sonny really proves that he has a cultured understanding of house music from across the ages. The whole thing is littered with plenty of his own magical and wholly exclusive tracks, and they really prove what a consistent and prolific producer he is. 

Disc 1 is a largely Sonny-focused affair with many exclusive cuts of his, as well as remixes of his work by stars like Doorly. Disc 2 finds him mixing up his own work with some key influences such as label mate Franky Rizardo, Classic man Seven Davis Jr, DirtyBird boss Claude Vonstroke and new school stars like Josh Butler. The third and final disc is a collection of Sonny’s own originals and remixes, and is a testament to his skill as a studio wizard as well as DJ icon. 
Sonny Fodera In The House is out 29 January on Defected Records, pre-order it here.  Catch Sonny at Defected In The House at Ministry of Sound this New Year's Eve, tickets here
