Idris Elba, the multi-talented actor and DJ, has again thrown down an incredible house set, this time from a high-rise building overlooking Amsterdam’s riverside.

This latest live stream endeavor was part of a Defected Records event to celebrate “The Kick Off,” the return of soccer season in partnership with Heineken and the UEFA Champions League. Along with Elba, the record label curated a lineup of heavy-hitters for the one-day streaming event, which included Purple Disco Machine, Low Steppa, and Ferreck Dawn, along with secret appearances from soccer stars sprinkled throughout the broadcast. Check out Elba’s one-hour set below.

Throughout 2020, Defected Records has boasted the debut of their Defected Virtual Festival events, a series of weekly radio shows hosted by Sam Divine, and will present an upcoming three-part livestream series dubbed “We Dance As One,” looking to bring awareness to the shutdown and lack of government support surrounding the UK nightlife and music industry.
