Various 'Dance 2017' (Secretsundaze)

Secretsundaze founders Giles Smith and James Priestly have been responsible for some of London’s best daytime house and disco parties, and this debut label comp is a snapshot of their diverse record selection. Ethyl & Flori’s ‘Shelter’ is a subtle midday mover and Brawther’s ‘Spaceman Funk’ goes deeper with bubbling synths, while Shanti Celeste’s rolling groover ‘Nu4him’ flows into BLM’s ‘Chemistry’. The melodic layers of Amir Alexander’s ‘Don’t Go’, DJ Qu’s drum-heavy ‘SS1’ and Endian’s techno-flavoured ‘Finish Me’ continue a journey of varying textures, before Two Armadillos’ jazzy ‘Warriors Return’ and James Priestley and Marco Antonio’s acid-tinged ‘Baia 2012’ bring things to a close.
