The Lab LDN is Mixmag and Smirnoff Sound Collective's weekly live stream, powered by Void Acoustics, where we showcase the finest DJs direct from our world famous office party.
This Friday we’re delighted to host a special back-to-back partnership between two of the UK house scene’s brightest stars, Route 94 and Secondcity.
Since taking on the Route 94 moniker Rowan Jones has rocketed to prominence. His flair for groove-laden house productions connected instantly with a vast audience, with his debut single ‘My Love (ft. Jess Glynne)’ hitting the Number 1 spot in the UK singles chart. He’s since maintained this quality on releases through Leftroom and Defected, and through his pumping DJ sets on a world-spanning tour.
Growing up in house’s birthplace Chicago instilled Secondcity with a love for the genre from a young age. He also scored a Number 1 hit with the infectious ‘I Wanna Feel’ in 2014, and has secured residencies at revered dance institutions such as Sankeys Ibiza, been tapped for a remix by Carl Cox, and released on Knee Deep In Sound, Toolrom and Saved Records. Later this month he’s contributing the first in a series of live & direct mix compilations from CR2 featuring 10 new and exclusive Secondcity tracks.
As a pairing these two are certain to set The Lab alight. You can catch them playing at South West Four in London on August 28, and also in The Lab LDN this Friday from 5pm BST by tuning in over on our Facebook page.
South West Four takes place at Clapham Common, London across August 27 to 28. Head here for tickets
