Tuesday 17th November 2015


Following 3 sell out shows in the last 12 months, including The Lexington and Village Underground, and with her new album ‘Giants’ dropping imminently to great anticipation, we are very happy to announce we are bringing Andreya Triana’s soulful fireworks back again for her BIGGEST gig yet, at one of London’s favourite venues – KOKO on 17th November 2015

One of UKs favourite vocal talents comes in the form of London based Andreya Triana, who as well as her astonishing debut album ‘Lost Where I Belong’ (Ninja Tune) in 2010 has collaborated with musical giants such as Bonobo, Flying Lotus and Mr Scruff to name a few, and recently joined Bonobo on stage at his sold out Alexandra Palace date to a rapturous reception….

So come and absorb her smoky vocals and striking presence at a venue that has been host to some of the best and most important acts in London – KOKO. With a stellar line up of supporting acts still to be announced, North London will be exploding with talent once again.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see this breakout moment of this beautiful singer’s solo career.

“The London singer looks every inch a star.” – The Independent

“Fireworks full of soul – ✭✭✭✭” – David Smyth / The Evening Standard – Review of Village Underground

“Like Nina Simone or Amy Winehouse – [her voice] gains its beauty from the cracks within it rather than any polished sheen.”

secretsundaze close their 2015 summer season on a Saturday, with Kai Alcé, Galcher Lustwerk, Wbeeza – live, Giles Smith and James Priestley

secretsundaze eveal 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.

Get ready 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.

Jasper James is our permanent Saturday night resident, he’ll play every week from here on in. There’s no end date to his residency, and though there’ll be guests they’ll never be announced – Jasper has the reigns.

The youngest DJ to ever play at the legendary Sub Club in Glasgow, Jasper James’ musical heritage goes back a long way. Only 24 years old, he’s the son of Sub Club’s Harri, who together with Domenic has been a resident at the infamous club for the past twenty years.
Growing up in Glasgow’s vibrant scene and under the tutelage of his father since his early teens, gave Jasper the perfect environment to become the DJ he is today. With an Essential Mix and a Rinse FM show already under his belt, his debut EP ‘Sneaky’ on Optimo’s heralded Optimo Trax was a huge hit on dance floors across Europe.

Now with his weekly Saturday residency at Phonox, he’ll have the opportunity to further position himself as a leading tastemaker in the new school of UK DJs.

secretsundaze Day & Night Birthday with Steffi, Roman Fluegel, Hunee & more


+ buy tickets

secretsundaze reveal the line-up for the 14th birthday doubleheader on bank holiday Sunday 30th August, including Steffi, Roman Fluegel, Hunee, Bradley Zero and Endian with one more act still to be announced.

Venue wise it’s about tried and tested favourites. The daytime will be at Oval Space, the scene of many a classic daytime session. With the 2 beautiful terraces and huge window that runs alongside the main room at Oval it’s the prefect spot to enjoy the summer. For the nighttime they make the short journey to Village Underground in Shoreditch, a venue that’s always had a special place in secretsundaze’s hearts since throwing the very first ever party at the venue in 2005.

Headlining the daytime event is Steffi. The Panorama Bar resident has become a force to be reckoned with. As a DJ she is always bang on the money and her sound roams from classic deep house to slamming techno to breakbeat and booty bass.

Joining Steffi is the inimitable Hunee. Korean born but brought up in Germany, Hunee first came to the secretsundaze’s attention via his stunning ‘Tour De Force’ EP on WT Records in 2009 but he has become most famous for his DJ sets which are a romp through funk, soul, disco, house and techno all served up from behind the decks with great panache.

The final guest for the daytime event is local boy Bradley Zero. Most known as the tall dreadlocked one that hosts Boiler Room, Bradley has gone on to carve out a name for himself as a tastemaker and DJ through his south London party Rhythm Section and his label of the same name that is primarily focused on dusty, soulful grooves.

Headlining the nighttime edition at Village Underground will be one of dance music’s longest serving ambassadors, Roman Fluegel. A musical chameleon and a man of many talents he is probably most famous for his techno project Alter Ego but he has also has success with Soylent Green and Roman IV. His recent work on Dial as simply Roman Fluegel is some of his best to date and he is arguably back at the peak of his career. Expect to hear techno, bleepy house and futuristic Italo disco.

The second special guest for the nighttime has to be announced at a later date but it’s an artist that has made a big impression in a very short space of time and it’s their second appearance at secretsundaze. All will be revealed on June 9th.

The final guest for the nighttime is Endian, which is George Levings’, AKA Commix (Metalheadz) relatively new house/techno project. His new EP ‘Finish Me’, a breakbeat/techno hybrid on secretsundaze, looks set to be a huge release with the likes of Joy Orbison, Marcel Dettmann, Scuba, Midland and Roman Fluegel all championing it.

secetsundaze residents Giles Smith and James Priestley will be playing across both parties. Their forthcoming schedule sees them playing in New York, Washington DC, Miami, Barcelona, Paris, Berlin, Bucharest and Belfast and they are in currently in the studio working on new music.

So the scene is set for a birthday to remember. Once again secretsundaze deliver a well-balanced line up that showcases the breadth of sounds they embrace in 2015. Coupled with the atmosphere expected on the birthday this should be a one of the parties of the year in the capital.

secretsundaze take a break from their London events in mid summer to host Room 2 at Fabric on Saturday 4th July with Giles Smith, James Priestley, Mike Huckaby and Patrice Scott. For more info visit http://fabriclondon.com .
