One of Louie Vega’s many hats, a painting by David Morales and Sam Divine’s trainers – the weird and wonderful items up for auction now ahead of a Defected fundraiser for homeless charity Shelter…

As another Monday inevitably continues its endless trudge into another Tuesday, Defected’s Wez Saunders finds himself with yet another busy week. Saunders, of course, wouldn’t have it any other way – many sources within the dance music world can vouch for how hard he works.

But this particular week is one that’s a little closer to his heart than normal. Whilst we stand by our descriptions of Saunders as being more commercially minded than his predecessor, he also has quite a philanthropic side – and this coming Thursday, Defected is running a fundraiser for Shelter.

So what is Shelter? Well, it’s a registered charity in the UK that campaigns for more rights for tenants – they operate all across Britain, with links to the Housing Rights Service in Northern Ireland. They were founded back in 1966 – and are probably most well known in the UK for their work with the homeless.

Neon 194 on London’s Piccadilly Street will be hosting a charity dinner on November 16th, followed by DJ sets from the likes of Arielle, Fat Tony, Defected’s own Melvo Baptiste, and Rudimental. A number of events took place over the weekend – and there’s also an auction.

So what’s in it? At the time of publication, Louie Vega’s isolator is the most expensive item on the list – with Defected’s own Luke Solomon having put in a bid of £1100 for the item. Elsewhere, someone somewhere is willing to pay £305 for an original painting by David Morales, and you can buy one of the aforementioned Louie Vega’s hats – bidding currently stands at £450.

Weirdly, one of the most popular items in the auction at the moment has bidding at £500. The item? Er, a pair of Sam Divine’s trainers. Directly donating is also an option…
