Secretsundaze are pumped to bring news of their Halloween bash 2017! Taking place on Saturday 28th October, they'll once again take over Oval Space for the night's proceedings. This year the theme is 'Club Kids'!
For those in the dark, the Club Kids came to prominence in the late 80's and early 90's in NYC. Led by party starters Michael Alig and James St James and other noteable scenesters including Amanda Lepore, Keoki, Christopher Comp and Walt Paper. The group was notable for its members' flamboyant behaviour, outrageous costumes and gender fluidity.
The the notoriety of the Club Kids took a turn when Michael Alig was imprisoned for the murder of drug dealer Angel Melendez. Most of all though the clubs kids should be remembered for making a great impact as an artistic and fashion — conscious youth culture whose influence can be felt in alternative queer club culture today.
Anyone struggling for inspiration for their outfits have no fear, as long as you can cultivate an all round air of fabulous or anything goes you'll be just fine!
Secretsundaze, the DJ duo of founders Giles and James will represent as only they can and will play an extended set on the night. They have been busy in the studio of late and are anticipating the release of their first track “Motorway Jam” on Part 3 of their Dance 2017 series and have more exciting news on the release front coming soon. Gig wise it's a been another strong summer for them with an all night back to back with Mister Saturday Night in Barcelona, festival appearances at Gottwood and Suncebeat and a takeover of Pikes in Ibiza just a few weeks ago to name a few. Don't forget you can catch them each and every month on NTS Radio.
Palms Trax steps up as the headline guest. In just 4 years and with only 4 releases to his name he has become one of the most talked about young artists in house music and a regular feature on most credible club and festivals line ups worldwide. Previously only releasing on Dekmantel and Lobster Theremin, Secretsundaze are stoked that he has contributed a track “Outflight” on the flipside of their “Motorway Jam” as the 3rd Dance 2017 release and the EP hits the shops in October to coincide with the party!
Also joining them on the night will be another artist featured on our Dance 2017 series: DJ Slyngshot. Born and raised in Offenbach the home of the infamous Robert Johnson, Slyngshot is most known for his own imprint Yappin records and tracks such as 'They Still Can't Grasp It' that was rinsed by the likes of Floating Points and and was a big track for Secretsundaze too.
The final addition to the line up is our friend, London based DJ Wes Baggaley. Wes is a regular at the likes of NYC Downlow / Block 9 at Glastonbury and has also played at the likes of Horse Meat Disco, Tama Sumo and Lakuti’s Your Love party at Block. He has great taste across the board but has a strong penchant for the soulful side and roots of house music so is a great fit for us.
‘Potential Difference’, Secretsundaze’s favoured event production wizards are already working hard to deliver a fully dressed and on theme Oval Space. Think bright, bolshy, FUN and slightly weird. Anyone who came to our Mad Scientists Party last year knows they don’t mess around. So the scene is set for another outstanding Halloween session. Early Bird Tickets are on sale now. Don't sleep!
