Secretsundaze launch DANCE 2017



Secretsundaze have announced their new concept DANCE 2017.

Launching a compilation, a NYD party, a new party series and a run of 12” EPs throughout next year, with the first various artists EP dropping late November. They previously have released three Secretsundaze mix comps, DANCE 2017 is the first label compilation, representing an exciting new chapter. Set for release at the end of January, the comp is delivered in a non-mixed format as well as a mixed format, featuring tracks from DJ QU, Shanti Celeste, Brawther, Wbeeza and Endian.

James saysDANCE 2017 fundamentally represents the dance music that we’re into and play right now. The 12” series will contain brand new music from the likes of Fred P, Nubian Mindz and many more TBA. For the compilation Giles and I hand picked some of our favourite tracks from the label’s catalogue. We like to think that all of the music we have released past and present has a timeless quality and that is very much something we strive for” 

Giles adds “Dance 2017 references the names of dance comps of the late 80s & 90s. I first heard early house on a NOW compilation in 1988 at the age of 15. I vividly remember being sat in my friend’s mum’s car parked in the school playground and stuff like MARRS, Bomb The Bass and Krush were booming out of the stereo. That was it, we were hooked!”

Finally DANCE 2017 party will take place on New Years Day at MOTH Club In Hackney with James and Giles playing all night long. They will then continue throughout the year, varying from small 250 cap parties up to 2000 cap showcases at the likes of Sonar and some of Secretsundaze’s larger dates in London.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
