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 2019 edition of the compilation brings house heat from key artists like Honey Dijon, Peggy Gou, Mella Dee and Andhim alongside Defected friends and family Melé, Purple Disco Machine, Riva Starr and CamelPhat.
Most Rated 2019 features standout tracks like Weiss’s ‘Feel My Needs’, with its unmistakable piano riff that has been taking dancefloors by storm all summer long. Purple Disco Machine’s remix of Fatboy Slim’s ‘Praise You’ gives a seminal record new lease of life for 2019, whilst ‘(It Happens) Sometimes’ sees David Guetta return to his underground roots as alias Jack Back.

Other exciting cuts include Paul Woolford’s ‘Don’t Waste My Time’, which delivers a direct slice of percussive house music, and Andhim’s remix of ‘Ngeke’ by Armonica and Toshi, which gives the compilation a dose of icy-cool eccentricity. As expected, the compilation offers a diverse range of house music, from tech-inclined beat to the soulful vocal cuts that characterise Defected’s sound.
