DFENDR is Ian Michael of Southwest Michigan. He brings his passion for music production, often deep, expressive, and soulful, to his live performance sets, creating impressive and energetic blends of soulful vocals, swinging drum beats and swelling pads in his own, unique styles of deep house, soul, r'n'b, and future garage.

His second release, "Decisions," will be available through the French-based label Bambousek Records, on October 20th, 2013.

On October 9th, 2012 the "Capture EP" was released through the label CK Division. The EP is three space-age spongs full of choppy, hypnotic vocals, grooving basslinse and swinging percussion. It is available through iTunes and Beatport.

He has shared the stage with many great local names, including Aztek, Nunca Duerma, DukTap, Jaws That Bite, Pastel Arsenal, ∆irjob, Land of Eph, Gami, PohnJaul, BfeelZ and others. His music has been featured on several music blogs and compilations, including the DredCollective and Head Nod Collective.
