For our 3rd more party of the season we are very happy to be going back south side to Peckham for a roof party on the Bussey Building. We were the first promoters to throw an event on this roof and anyone that came to either of parties last summer in June and July with the likes of Patrice Scott. Will Saul and Joy Orbison will testify how special it is. The roof is on the 6th storey of the building and has quite unbelievable views on one side looking to the city and on the other towards rolling country side on the periphery of London.
Guest wise we have a special line up with some real DJs’ DJs in the house in the shape of Detroit underground hero Dan Bell, London rising star Braiden and Secretsundaze artist Flori. Dan Bell has a serious CV working with Richie Hawtin as youngsters on the live techno project “Cybersonic” and running legendary distribution company and label 7th City which focussed on pushing records by many native Detroit artists such as Mike Huckaby and Rick Wade. His production on his own imprint as DBX and KB Project are still highly regarded and coveted often going for silly money on Discogs. His DJing is quite exceptional with an immaculate selection and smooth, fluid mixing style. He is still based in Detroit but spends a number of month based in Berlin the the summer and we are fortunate to have bagged his main London gig.
Our second guest is one of the UK’s young hopes Braiden. Braiden is one of the new breed of UK artist, that has the innate ability and skill as a DJ to move around from many genres with ease and although coming from a bass background, has embraced House and Techno. You are as likely to hear a Kasem Mosse track in his sets as a Hessle Audio record. He played for us on NYE in the Man Make Music room and killed it. He is quite a turntable wizard. Production wise he has released “The Alps” on Joy Orbison’s Doldrums imprint. He can be heard regularly on Rinse FM and we are sure with this talent his profile will rise and rise.
Finally secretsundaze young gun Flori, mature beyond his years DJ wise will be on warm up duties. He will be releasing the next secretsundaze release 005 for the label entitled “Lucy” on the following Monday after this party so good timing. Of course both founding members and residents Giles Smith and James Priestley will be on making appearances.
We are already very excited about returning to Bussey for another roof session. Tickets are much more limited than usual with the smaller capacity of the roof so don’t hang around and its already the most popular event in RA that day! Also take note due to the nature of this event we are starting slightly earlier and finishing slightly earlier.
