Defected Records is teaming up with DJ EZ for a special 24-hour live stream to raise money for the mental health charity Mind.

After it was awarded DJ Mag’s Best of British Award for Best Virtual Festival last year, the record label now links up with the UK Garage pioneer to continue its work of utilising the power of music to unite people in 2021.

Renowned for his marathon DJ sets — most recently in March 2020 where he partnered with Boiler Room and MyKindDeed for a 24-hour stream — DJ EZ is a true legend in the world of UKG. A musical force for over two decades, his notoriety as a creative mixer makes him one of the best loved acts in dance..

In 2020, Defected’s series of virtual events raised $1.2 million USD for the WHO’s COVID-19 Solidary Response Fund, reaching over 60 million people across lockdown.

Defected presents DJ EZ will be live streamed across YouTube, Facebook and Twitch on January 23 from 6pm GMT.

In other music news, Drake has become the first artist to record over 50 billion Spotify streams.
