secretsundaze reveal the final guest for their Bank Holiday doubleheader on Sunday 30th August. Bristol’s Shanti Celeste will be joining Steffi, Roman Fluegel, Hunee, Bradley Zero, Endian, James Priestley and Giles Smith at two classic secretsundaze locations – East London’s Oval Space and Village Underground.
Part one of the double header takes place Oval Space, headlined by Panorama Bar resident Steffi. The Berlin-based DJ has become a force to be reckoned with, with her distinctive sound that roams from classic deep house to slamming techno to breakbeat and booty bass. Joining Steffi is Hunee, perhaps 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, and Boiler Room host Bradley Zero.
Headlining the night time 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, expect to hear techno, bleepy house and futuristic Italo disco. Following a stellar secretsundaze debut back in January, Shanti Celeste returns for round two, bringing influences from her native Bristol combining with more housey flavours from both Chicago and Detroit. The final guest for the nighttime is Endian, who’s recent EP ‘Finish Me’ a breakbeat/techno hybrid on secretsundaze, has received props from the likes of Joy Orbison, Marcel Dettmann, Scuba and Midland.
With two of London’s finest DJs and residents, Giles Smith and James Priestley, warming up and closing the party, the scene is set for another classic secretsundaze summer 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.
