secretsundaze’s mini-festival returns for 2013 on August Bank Holiday Sunday, as secretsundaze x Go Bang! offers an incredible array of cutting edge talent across day and night.
For its second year, secretsundaze x Go Bang! comes at you by day from secretsundaze’s much-loved terrace at Studio 338 in Greenwich and by night takes over The Coronet Theatre in Elephant and Castle.
Headlining secretsundaze x Go Bang! is Juan Atkins & Moritz von Oswald present Borderland (live) – a project and collaboration from Detroit pioneer Juan Atkins and one of Germany's most important electronic producers Moritz Von Oswald, this is their only 2013 London show. The tracks from the LP are quite stunning, combining subtle sumptuous electronic grooves with their high end production values. They have transformed this body of work into an unmissable live show. It really will be a very rare opportunity to see these two giants of the scene perform together.
secretsundaze welcomes Omar S – the most fresh and standout Detroit producer and DJ of recent years, whose uncompromising and unique vision of house and techno, coupled with his undeniable confidence and swagger, has breathed new life into the genre. 3024 man Martyn‘s sound is totally fitting with the Go Bang! concept of cutting-edge dance music in the broadest sense, with his hybrid of house, techno, bass and breaks. He has an LP set for September release, the follow-up to his well-received ‘Ghost People’ on Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder last year.
Portable with his fantastic live show has a great presence as a performer, with his custom-made outfits and live vocals never failing to leave a lasting impression and his shows have taken in many of the best clubs and festivals worldwide. With the most enviable residency in the world at Panorama bar, Tama Sumo is quite simply one of the most fantastic DJs secretsundaze have heard, with a culture for great house and techno across the board. Floating Points has been on secretsundaze’s hit list for some time. His DJ sets are the stuff of legend, with the likes of Ben UFO name-checking him as the DJ he most likes to hear combining house, techno, boogie, funk and beyond.
Bringing the noise is Belgian artist Peter Van Hoesen. His sound ranges from more mesmerising, heady, warm techno to the tougher stuff – always impeccably programmed. Other special additions to secretsundaze x Go Bang! include an-all night session from the oh-so-hot pairing of L.I.E.S kingpin Ron Morelli and The Trilogy Tapes’ Will Bankhead, easily two of the most interesting imprints to emerge in recent years. DJ Qu from New York is one of the new breed of NYC producers and DJs and a firm favourite of ours. Manchester and Prime Numbers head honcho Trus'me also steps up – a great DJ who can comfortably navigate all that is good within house and techno in 2013. Brawther returns to secretsundaze x Go Bang! 2013 following his excellent set in 2012.
London's Andrew Ashong has been tipped for big things with his work both as a solo artist and alongside Theo Parrish with their beautiful ‘Flowers’ track from 2012 – and now his new release on Theo’s new imprint Wildheart is getting chins wagging. His music has a great earthiness and bags of soul. Moxie – one of the original faces on NTS radio and Deviation residents alongside Benji B brings her own inspired selection to proceedings.
