Secretsundaze announce ‘Spirit of Sundaze Ensemble’ live show
‘Spirit of Sundaze Ensemble’ is the next instalment in the London event’s 20th anniversary celebrations.
Taking place at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, on the 7th October, the night brings together a collective of contemporary musicians and vocalists to reimagine 20 tracks that defined the party over the last two decades.
From fan favourites and foundational dance floor cuts, the night will features several of London’s most exciting talents curated by co-founder James Priestly, who will join the musicians on MPC, FX and keys.
Alongside James, the performance will be led by Musical Director Lewis Moody, who has previously worked with 30/70 Collective and Zeitgeist Freedom Energy Exchange, and feature performances from Myele Manzana, Oli Savill, Wayne Snow, Hinako Omori, Yahael (Balimaya Project) and Johnny Brierley, amongst others.
Secretsundaze Co-Founder Giles Smith said: “We selected 20 foundational tracks from two decades of DJing at Secretsundaze as a basis to work from. These records have been reimagined through the lens of various other genres with a stand out collective of musicians and will be performed live at the Queen Elizabeth Hall for the first time. People should expect a journey through a myriad of styles and tempos, shining a new light on the parts of the original tracks we know and love whilst allowing the incredible musicianship to also shine bright.”
The performance follows the release of the first Spirit of Sundaze Ensemble single, a new version of Photek’s ‘Mine to Give’ recorded with vocalist Wayne Snow, which is out now.
