James Priestly and Giles Smith know how to throw a party. The intrepid soiree-throwers at secretsundaze have announced full details for their Spring/Summer parties in London & around the world and they are very tasty indeed.
Kicking off the season and the quintessential mark of Summer in the UK will be the extended May Bank Holiday Weekend, all day/all night Opening Party on Sunday May 4th. Mainstays like Mosca, Rolando and DJ Qu will rub shoulders with exciting new artists like Seven Davis Jr. who will be doing his live show by day at Studio 338. By night, favourites like Virginia, Amir Alexander and Alexander Nut will descend upon Corsica Studios to join the heavily-backed Ghanian singer and Hyponik favourite Andrew Ashong, fresh off the back of his sophomore EP for a hazy evening of jazz infused bass. Positive vibes and radiant smiles are forecasted.
The second two-part instalment on May 25th will see 3024 kingpin Martyn take to the wheels of steel alongside a yet to be announced special guest at Oval Space. All we can tell you is that they may or may not be affiliated with Steffi’s Dolly imprint. By night Ostgut stalwart Ryan Elliot will play alongside newcomer A Sagittariun at The Laundry, he will be performing a live show as an added bonus Joey Anderson will also make a rare appearance.
International dates include a US tour taking in Output in NYC and the legendary Smart Bar in Chicago, Fuse in Brussels, Tresor in Berlin, Studio 80 in Amsterdam, Animal Social Club in Rome and Robert Johnson in Offenbach. Festival Dates with guest artists to be confirmed will include We are FSTVL in May, their epic day and night Off-Sonar party in the hills at La Terrrazza, Unknown Festival in Croatia and The Zoo Project Festival closer to home.
To wet your whistles until then, the next secretsundaze event will be an Easter Special at Electric Brixton on Thursday April 17th. A tasty line-up includes Derrick May, Deetron, Livity Sound, Arnaldo and of course their humble residents.
