House music has enjoyed yet another incredible year, with 2020 looking set to continue providing yet more amazing additions to the genre. ‘Defected presents Most Rated 2020’ celebrates the wealth and variety of house created, played and enjoyed on dancefloors worldwide, showcasing the records that are dominating club sound systems right now, and the future classics that are emerging from this year.

Most Rated presents the key tracks of the moment, the heavy hitters of the future and your DJ essentials in one unmissable package of unedited, unmixed and full-length tracks. Defected’s 2020 edition of the compilation brings house heat from key artists like Detlef, Carl Cox, Darius Syrossian and Honey Dijon alongside Defected friends and family David Penn, Sam Divine, The Vision and Purple Disco Machine.

Most Rated 2020 features standout tracks like Purple Disco Machine’s remix of Roberto Surace’s ‘Joys’, bringing his signature funk-tinged sounds to the DJ Awards’ Track Of The Season, while adding new life to the track for 2020. Endor’s ‘Pump It Up’ also features on the compilation, another stand-out release from the label. Other highlights from the Defected stable include Felix Da Housecat x Chris Trucher ‘Thee Trk!’ (Honey Dijon Re-Edit), The Vision featuring Andreya Triana ‘Heaven’ (Mousse T.’s Disco Shizzle Extended Remix) and Route 94 ‘Close’.

As ever, Most Rated continues to champion releases from other key imprints, with Hot Creations’ boss Jamie Jones’ Re-Edit of Raumakustik ‘Waves’, Rudimental & The Martinez Brothers featuring Faith Mussa ‘Sitigawana’ (TMB Dub Mix) on Asylum Records and Patrick Topping’s club anthem ‘Turbo Time’ on his own label Trick.

As expected, the compilation offers a diverse range of house music, from tech-inclined bangers to the soulful vocal cuts that characterise Defected’s sound.
