    Unfortunately... Very unfortunately... the summer is slowing drawing to a close. (Unless of coarse you are in the Southern hemisphere - then its just staring for you...) The record breaking temperatures set the scene for the ever strengthening festival circuit across the U.K and Europe with some pretty cool (pardon the pun) parties in between. The sun seems to bring the best out in everyone (apart from Faliraki apparently!) - However, let Best Kept Secret provide you with the perfect antidote to any Season Affective Disorder you make acquire and warm the cockles of your feet and hips.... we refresh the parts that other music doesn't reach...

    (Patricia Marx & Bruno E)

    Sat 6th September

    45 r.p.m Club, Wuppertal, Germany - 10 p.m - 2 a.m - 7 euro entry

    A further date by the dynamic duo from Sao Paulo to bring to a close the latest instalment from this nu - house and jazz compilation tour from the ever consistent Patricia Marx, Bruno E & the Trama Label from Brazil. Watch this space for the next exciting samba segue.
    (Abstract Blue Recordings)

    Fri 19th September

    Hendra Hall, Tal-Y-Bont, (nr. Bangor), Gwynedd, Wales - 8 p.m - Late - £8

    We are not called Best Kept Secret for nothing. We cover every inch of grass, leaving no stone unturned in pursuit of new and fresh destinations. Hendra Hall is a beautiful and historical venue in the shadows of Snowdonia - so for anyone in that part of the world - make the worthwhile trip to see one of the finest acts of 2003.
    (Best Kept Secret)

    Thurs 4th September

    JAM , Shoreditch High Street / Old Street, London - 9 p.m - 12 a.m - FREE

    Pop in and say hello in Hoxton's newest addition to its glittering array of evening establishments - This split level bar has a comfy, modern & unpretencious atmosphere - clap your hands and stomp your feet - plus fantastic cocktails to boot.

    Thurs 25th September

    Ruby Lo - Orchard Street, London W1 - 8 p.m - 1 a.m

    This thriving little series of "Ruby" cellars and bars cropping upover London in the past few years are now attracting a more discerning listeners (even if they are dressed in Saville Row suits!) after a funky good time. Its flagship venue (opp. Selfridges Food Hall) has just celebrated its first Birthday and been sproused up to keep it looking fresh...NICE.

    Best Kept Secret would like to introduce the following additions to its roster ...

    Alex Attias

    West London via Switzerland - not the most orthadox of routes, but perhaps thats what makes him special. Resident DJ at London's broken beat shrine, Co-Op and possibly the nicest man you are likely to meet. A series of mix CD's for Goya Music under the the "Mustang" moniker as well as "Beatless" plus releases on the Visions, People and Irma imprints and numerous collabarations with I.G Culture, 4 Hero, Bugz in the Attic and Domu to mention a few create a consistancy and track record that is hard to match...


    Or should I call him Chaka?? ...Another kick arse producer and DJ from the Co Op stable and one half of Compost Records act Rima. Remix king and booty shaker extraordinaire, Domu DJ sets are addictive and never forgotten. If you don't already know him, where have you been...?!!

    Sidewinder (Fenetik / Soma)

    No.1 in Zzub Chart (DJ Mag) with "Ego Riot" and stomping performances for Fabric and The End in London plus a forthcoming album in October called "Resolution" from the Soma / Fenetik - Pure quality all the way with an organic / electronic cross over... Full details for tour dates to be announced later this month.

    More Moomu Records sweetness to follow very shortly via the second release on the Moomu Label. Again another doulble-A side. First track, entitled "It Don't matter" features the lyrical skills of hot British MC Yungun - chunky slabs of production with lyrical flow... Just how we like it. "Always" on the flip is a slice a Brazilian tinged dancefloor mover lovingly layered to perfection...Stayed tuned for more info on release date.
