secretsundaze Closing Party @ Oval Space / Sunday 29th September 2013


Doors: 14:00-22:30

@ Oval Space, 29-32 The Oval, Bethnal Green, London E2 9DY

Tickets: from £19.50 book online

For the final summer daytime session of the year (at least in London) Secretsundaze are returning to the fantastic Oval Space.

Headlining the party will be standout artist, DJ and producer Motor City Drum Ensemble / MCDE. Since breaking through in 2008 with his own take on the sounds of Detroit combining soul, jazz and techno on his much loved Raw Cuts Series he has created a profile for himself that has won him fans as significant as Moodymann. His warm, analogue productions have definitely set the bar for that sound and remixes for Caribou, Sprinkles, Zero 7 plus his genre hopping mix for the DJ Kicks series have confirmed his lofty status. This will be his third appearance at a secretsundaze party and he never disappoints.

Also Mr G has had a huge rise in popularity over the last few years since a younger generation has discovered his music for the first time though the likes of his Boiler Room set, consistent release schedule and also natural charisma. Rekids have just released a retrospective of some of his finest moments and his raw, bass heavy sound is always on the money.

Doors: 11.00 – 17.30

@ The Horse Hospital, Chalk Farm Road, NW1 8AH

Entry: Free – donations welcome

26th September – 24th November 2013

Curated by Emma Blau

Proud Camden presents Amy Winehouse: For You I Was a Flame, an exhibition curated by the Amy Winehouse Foundation with the support of Amy’s family, ahead of the late star’s 30th birthday. It kick starts a month of events entitled #Amys30, taking place in Camden throughout September, in support of the Foundation. This month will celebrate Winehouse’s life and career, and raise awareness of the great work being achieved in her name.
Taking place in Camden, the singer’s spiritual home, Amy Winehouse: For You I Was A Flame consists of specially chosen works, selected for their significance to her life and career. From Jake Chessum’s 2004 photographic portrait of a fresh faced singer on the road to stardom, to Dean Chalkley’s now infamous 2011 NME cover along with candid stage shots by Andy Willsher and Carolyn Djanogly’s powerful nude. The images featured paint a tender portrait of a life lived to the full.
The photographs will be shown alongside works donated by leading graffiti artists Mr Brainwash and Bambi, as well as a Gerald Laing piece from Amy’s own collection. For the first time, these works will be joined by a range of paintings and drawings donated by the Winehouse family, making this exhibition a once in a lifetime opportunity to view both unseen and iconic images of an ordinary North London girl who touched the hearts of millions.
