DBP’s Ryan Keary shared how involved SecondCity has been in shaping the event:
SecondCity played at one of our after-parties in March this year and came to the WH before hand, wanting to play as soon as he could! We worked over the summer with him and his management to put together a line up that he’s happy with and feels Defected-y. This line up has potential to be the best of the lot: Oliver $ has one of the biggest tracks of the summer. Him and Jesse Rose will play a very special b2b set, and Cristoph is definitely one to watch with his HS82-style mixes.
SecondCity has certainly made an impression with his debut single, “I Wanna Feel”, rocketing to number one in the UK charts, contributing to a growing trend of producers breaking through to the mainstream with deep house tracks. Aside from the commercial endorsement, SecondCity can firmly count on the support of his peers, boasting a number of collaborations with fellow chart-topper Route 94, including the disco tinged “Freak”, and regularly DJing around the globe amongst members of the Defected family, upon whose label he released his “Groove N’ On” EP. The american born DJ seems set for further acclaim this autumn with the upcoming release of his new single “What Can I Do”, in October, featuring the vocal talents of Ali Love, through Ministry of Sound’s Speakerbox record branch.
Tickets for ‘SecondCity pesents’ at Warehouse Southampton will be available for purchase shortly, with super earlybird tickets priced at £8.
