A Guy Called Gerald (live)
The running time of the event will be 10pm to 6am.
We'll be taking the party south of the river again and this time will be taking over the newly revamped Electric in Brixton, with a killer sound system and state of the art lighting we're excited to be heading there for the first time.
Her rise to prominence has been nothing short of astounding, going from a respected DJ and producer with a modest schedule to being one the most in demand artists in the world within the last 18 months playing at the likes of festivals such as Melt, Decibel and DEMF as well as clubs such as Fabric, Panorama Bar and The Warehouse Project. Much of this is down to her much loved debut LP on Rekids the self titled Nina Kraviz. Her biggest hit from the LP being 'Ghetto Kraviz'. Her sound as a DJ is varied but to listen to her spin and one can tell that the roots of Detroit techno and Chicago house are ingrained within her and that DJing, not production was her first love. We very much look forward to her second appearance at secretsundaze.
A Guy Called Gerald - Live
Gerald Simpson is very much to the UK scene what the likes of Juan Atkins is to the Detroit. Hailing from Manchester, his biggest hit the evergreen 'Voodoo Ray' is still cited as one of the tracks that ignited the scene and still sounds just as good to this day, not forgetting his initial involvement in 808 State writing the equally anthemic 'Pacific State'. However far from resting on his laurels Gerald's restless desire to explore new territories has seen him produce solo material on !K7, Zip's seminal Perlon and also has a killer new EP on the Italian label Bosconi just released. His live shows are 100% mastery and we had to get him on board after seeing him live at Boiler Room late last year in Berlin.
An enigmatic figure, considered a true DJs’ DJ by house music lovers worldwide. His first releases on Harmonie Park in 1995 are bonafide classics and he continues to remix and produce records to the same high standard today – ‘Bassline 89’ was an anthem across underground dancefloors worldwide in 2012.
Of course our very own Giles Smith and James Priestley will be joining the antics in room 1.
Room 2 will see a The Secret Agency takeover with a stunning line up that reflects the strength of the young artists onboard.
The 22 year old bright hope from NYC. 2012 was a fantastic year for him with his 'Mad Disrespect' EP on Mister Saturday Night being included in the top singles of the year by none less than RA (no.10) Juno Plus (no.3), Little White Earbuds and SPIN…He has had props from the likes of Four Tet and we think 2013 will be an even stronger year for him.
The equally young London based artist has made big noises with his releases on Kerri Chandlers Madtech imprint and Love Fever, busy touring schedule and Boiler Room appearance.
Ewan hailing from Leeds has a unique, refined, classy sound that has already seen him remix artists such as Maya Jane Coles, Gerry Read and Dusky. He has forthcoming material on secretsundaze and Simple.
