Defected Broadcasting House: 24/7 live – the home of all things Defected

Defected Records is renowned for its innovative approach and commitment to quality music.

Defected Records is celebrating 25 years in the game, with no signs of slowing down. Driven by a relentless desire to evolve and deepen connections with their audience, Defected Records sought a robust and dynamic streaming solution. This led them to partner with StreamPush, the leader in 24/7 live stream technology.

The independent House music specialists, voted 'Best Record Label' at the BBC Radio 1 Dance Awards, are scheduling diverse content on both the YouTube and Twitch platforms, including mixes, archive sets, live streams, and playlists. The goal is to engage their global audience continuously and effectively.

Defected Records choose StreamPush for its unparalleled expertise in the field, and the platform offered everything they needed. StreamPush's reputation as the 'best in the biz' was a significant factor in this decision.

Defected app with audio-only stream

The 24/7 Defected Broadcasting House live stream is also available as an audio-only stream in the Defected app and website, with the ability to tune in while browsing and switching seamlessly between existing applications. To make this work, Defected uses the Icecast destination to stream an audio-only live feed from StreamPush to their Icecast server. StreamPush dynamically updates the ’Now playing’ track metadata to Icecast, which is visible in the app as well, and stores the Icecast concurrent listeners statistics for further analysis. Defected is going the extra mile by integrating the upcoming broadcast schedule as well.

New Year's Eve with Defected: a global celebration

A standout event in our partnership was the unprecedented New Year's Eve livestream, spanning five continents over 24 hours. Defected streamed NYE from Australia, Thailand, South Africa, the USA, and the UK, and StreamPush helped with the logistics planning, offering solutions beyond their usual scope. The event ran smoothly, showcasing the power of StreamPush in managing and switching between multiple global events to provide a continuous stream to viewers worldwide.

“On NYE, we ran an unprecedented live stream from five continents over 24 hours. Streaming sets from Australia, Thailand, South Africa, the USA, and the UK. StreamPush was instrumental in the logistics, even suggesting solutions outside their platform. We smoothly ran all five events simultaneously on YouTube to provide a constant live stream. The result: a continuous, uninterrupted stream, making our NYE event a global success story.”
