The Secret Agency
The Secret Agency launched in March this year as a natural progression of London's secretsundaze parties. It brings together some of the most talented up and coming European producers, with some of the most reputed underground US house names. After a launch party in Tokyo, at Eleven (formerly Yellow) and in Barcelona as an integral part of the off Sonar circuit, the agency now touches down on home soil at Plan B in Brixton.
The 500 capacity venue, equipped with a Funktion One rig, hosts The Secret Agency party as the latest in a series of forward thinking music events.
True to the agency mantra, this event combines Detroit's Patrice Scott with secretsundaze residents Giles Smith and James Priestley. Adding his fresh take on house will be the UK's rising star Flori.
Patrice Scott has long been building a reputation as one of the finest DJs out there, his Motor City influences are clear but his style is certainly his own. Patrice's Sistrum imprint supplies some of the deepest and most kinetic house music out there, his recent remixes of Leif and Fred P have stood out and highlighted his immense talent.
secretsundaze is now in its ninth season at home and abroad, with the impending relaunch of the label, the brand new agency and a packed calendar of international gigs. Amsterdam, Paris and Montreal have received the secretsundaze treatment this year, plus Berlin, Croatia, as well as Far Eastern and US tours are in the pipeline! Giles' Two Armadillos project has some exciting releases planned for late 2010, including a remix of drum'n'bass heroes Commix, on the legendary Metalheadz imprint. James' venue The C.A.M.P is becoming a go-to venue for fans of forward thinking live and club music, he has also found the time alongside a hectic DJ schedule to return to the studio with partner Dan Berkson.
Rounding off the line up is Flori, the 23-year-old from Wolverhampton has been behind two of UK house's freshest releases of the last 6 months. The Trimley EP on Freerange and the Paisley Riffs (both with Ethyl) have contained some of the most distinctive rhythms and beats to emerge from these shores in recent times.
The line up reflects the influences filtering down from the very beginnings of electronic music with four DJs all able to put their own unique stamp on the genre, with the synergy of the four at one of London's best venues a hot prospect for the capital's house heads.
