Secondcity’s ‘I Wanna Feel’ made good its promise to become summer 2014’s first big anthem, debuting at No.1 in the UK singles chart in June, with current sales of over 200,000 and counting. The track saw huge support from across Radio 1, Kiss, Capital, MTV, 1Xtra, Vertex FM and many more, gaining him critical praise from The Guardian to iD, Vertex Magazine, Hunger, Mixmag, Digital Spy and beyond. Secondcity aka Rowan, now returns with new single, ‘What Can I Do’, featuring Ali Love.
With one foot in the charts, but his heart in the underground, Secondcity has kept his head down, releasing EPs for Defected and Saved, remixing FCL’s ‘It’s You’, and hitting the studio to create ‘What Can I Do’ between a frenetic live schedule with shows for Ushuaia Ibiza, Defected at Booom Ibiza and at Ministry of Sound, Motion, Arches and beyond. Upcoming festival dates include Creamfields, SW4, Reading & Leeds and Pukklepop, plus he’s playing at Privilege for Radio 1’s Ibiza event.
Born and raised in Chicago until the age of 12, Secondcity has lived in the UK since his teens. Over the past twelve months he’s been championed by the likes of Pete Tong, Route 94, Huxley, Skream, Disclosure, MK and many more, his debut release, the much-hyped four track EP, ‘The Story’, was released on Huxley’s Saint’s And Sonnets imprint and hit the Beatport Deep House Top 10.
The success of the ‘The Story’ EP led to a remix for Miami Rockers on seminal US house label Strictly Rhythm, while Secondcity and Route 94’s edit of ‘Freak Like Me’ and his production ‘I Enter’ for Dirtybird’s BBQ compilation have ensured the plaudits have come thick and fast.
