Finishing off the double May bank holiday, Secretsundaze have thrown the perfect summer season opener at Oval Space and The Laundry on Sunday 29th May. After their hugely successful night at St John’s Church last month Sundaze return with an exciting line-up for their Day & Night party.
Playing host to the day session is Oval space. A firm favourite among many with its 2 terraces and open planned area you can see why. The Laundry basement in London Fields provides a new L’Acoustic soundstystem; for the night time revelers to test out.
The line-up is as classy as ever and perfectly exemplifies the Secretsundaze sound. No headlines just headliners.
Fred P has become a permanent fixture at Secretsundaze playing numerous sets renowned for his rhymic, transcending deep house. His productions, which have taken him from a well-known name to a global presence, are a concoction of soulful house mixed with African percussions, emotive deep jazz moments and euphoric soul vocals.
Next on the bill is Patrice Scott. Another regular member of Secretsundaze’s line-ups, Scott has featured at an abundance of clubs and festivals worldwide. His sound mixes a combination of deep house and classic techno beats all of which can be heard on his new EP ‘The Detroit Uplight’. If you want to discover unheard classics with a hint of tech this is your man!
From tech to electro swing; London based producer FunkinEven changes the vibe to his unique take on electronic music. Featuring a blend of traditional boogie, funk and four-to-the-floor House his progressive style will move people during the evening session. Dropping a new EP in the coming months you’ll be sure to hear a fresh original sound that no other DJ can produce.
Making his debut on a Secretsundaze bill is Palms Trax. Now living in Berlin his reputation has grown in recent years making him one of the most exciting talents emerging from the tech scene. With his smooth synths and undulating drum patterns Palms Trax uses his London upbringing to give him an all-encompassing sound. His day set will be a hidden gem.
Not quite debuting, but still fairly new to the Secretsundaze line-ups is Shanti Celeste. Releasing her material with the likes of Apron, Future Times and BRSTL she is another evolving artist gaining fans with her monthly show on NTS Radio. A grounded artist, who still puts in a few days behind the counter at Idle Hands record shop, her repertoire of record knowledge and plays is evident throughout her sets.
Next up is Henry Wu. The South Londoner has already had a huge year gaining a name for himself though his “raw” sets. Drawing on his wide-ranging musical spectrum he mixes anything from funk to jazz whilst incorporating a more contemporary house sound.
Last but not least is Secretsundaze. Oringally beginning as Sunday daytime party co –founders and resident DJ’s Giles Smith and James Priestley are the living example of “been there, done that”. From festivals such as Sonar, Lovebox and Electric Elephant and cities London to Tokyo this DJing duo are slowly edging their way into legendary. Not only organising some of the best parties around the world they both are formidable mixers. Whilst Giles mixes a subtle tech with raging tribal house Priestley‘s heavy tech background influences his psychedelic sets. If you are looking for a festival on a Sunday this is as good as it gets.
Tickets are still available for both Day& Night.
