secretsundaze Summer Closing Party
Ahead of their upcoming bank holiday double-header on Sunday 30th August, secretsundaze today reveal news of their summer closing party in London, taking place on Saturday 26th September at Village Underground in the heart of Shoreditch. For those that don’t know, secretsundaze hosted the very first party at Village Underground in 2004, so the venue has a special place in their hearts. It really is a stunning space with the high dramatic ceiling and lovingly restored, exposed brick work.
For last party of the summer, secretsundaze wanted to bring something extra special, a line up and party for their core crowd and the heads. For the headlining act, they have dug deep to bring an artist they have wanted to play at secretsundaze for a few years now and someone whose productions have sound tracked many a secretsundaze party. Kai Alcé is without doubt one of the most underrated US artists. His productions have graced labels such as Moodymann’s Mahogani Music, seminal NYC label Trackmode and Omar S’s mighty FXHE. He can do soulful – check his remix of Sandman and Riverside’s ‘In Your Story’ or he can do rough ballsy peak time bangers like ‘Dirty South’. His DJ sets are equally as dynamic and secretsundaze are over the moon to have finally bagged him.
Second up they have a red hot talent representing with Galcher Lustwerk, one of the most hyped names in underground circles right now. Based in NYC, Galcher put out one or two records a few years back but it wasn’t until his 100% Galcher mix appeared earlier this year that showcases his new productions that people really sat up and took notice. His sound is deeeeeeeeep, with his trademark spoken word vocals laid over smooth, atmospheric grooves. He is no.1 on Juno’s Best Sellers right now with the hypnotising ‘I Neva Seen’.
Last up we have the one and only Wbeeza live. ‘Beeza’, as he is known to many, is a South London born and bred artist. Bursting with raw talent his sound is truly unique with house, hip-hop, jazz, garage and techno all amalgamated into his palette of sound. His live set is always off the chain and never fails. A regular at secretsundaze since 2007, Wbeeza is very much part of the family. He is currently working on a secretsundaze 12′ and a new LP which should see the light of day in late 2015.
As always, secretsundaze residents Giles Smith and James Priestley will be making their presence felt, as resident DJs and founding members of the party. The duo recently returned from a US tour to play Fabric’s Room 2 last weekend and have upcoming shows in Berlin, Barcelona, Bucharest and Dublin in the next few weeks.
The scene is set to bid farewell to the summer with one of the finest parties of the year for those that like their house and techno deep and soulful.
