secretsundaze – July 29th

Art & Culture

***Venue Change: Loft Studios, 77-81, Scrubs Lane, Kensal Green, London, NW10 6QU ***

After a killer sell out roof party at the Bussey Building with underground hero Dan Bell and UK fast rising star Braiden on June 3rd secretsundaze return at the end of the month for another party with 3 more fabulous guest DJs with Cadenza's Mayaan Nidam, one of our favourite and most regular guests Fred P (Soul People Music / Black Jazz Consortium) and Bristol based producer and DJ October (TANSTAAFL, Simple, Skudge).

Mayaan Nidam aka Miss Fitz has been doing her thing for quite some time. Originating from Israel she as many electronic music artists now resides in Berlin. With early outings on Frankfurt based Raum label alongside her friend Shaun Reeves and also collaborations with Vera as Mara Trax she has blossomed into a unique solo artist with an interesting take on electronic music. Her debut self titled LP with its intricate electronic stylings combined with more folk and ethnic influences won her many fans. She then went on to produce great EP's for labels as significant as Zip's seminal Perlon imprint. She has now just released her second LP on Luciano's Cadenza imprint entitled "New moon" which has a kaleidoscope of influnces yet sounding coherent and fresh. It is perhaps most pertinent to mention her DJing skills….she is without doubt one of the very best female House DJs we have ever heard and much like her good friend Zip has a fantastic way of presenting old nuggets and treats alongside new diamonds so it's perhaps long overdue that she layed it down at secretsundaze.

Fred P should need no introduction to secretsundaze fans. This will be his 3rd appearance for us and he is indeed the real deal with a non compromise approach to music and indeed DJing marking him out as a serious talent and one of the next generation of New York DJs / producers taking the sound to a new place. Through his releases on his excellent Soul People Music as both Fred P and Black Jazz Consortium and his collaborations with the likes of Move D, Fred's sound is often deep yet quite spiritual and moving and with tracks like the legendary "Horizon's" and "Emotive Vibrations". His DJ sets are always highly anticipated and this will be no exception.

Last up we have one of our favourite new artists "new" in the sense that he is just finally being recognised for his talents but has indeed been making great tracks in his analogue based lab in Bristol for many years: October (TAANSTAAFL, Simple). Jules as he is known by his friends has great taste and great skills. 2012 really should be his best year yet with the massive Lil Louis influenced jam "Planet of Minds " on his own Taaanstafl imprint doing massive dancefloor damage and other recent releases including "Push" on the mighty Skudge label and "String Theory" on Simple all doing serious dancefloor damage.

The venue will be announced shortly. Surely another essential secretsundaze session with a line up befitting
