Los Angeles-based promoters Factory93 set the Los Angeles house and techno scene on fire with their debut festival Secret Project in 2018. An instant favorite amongst fans in SoCal, Secret Project brought the best of house and techno DJs to spin amongst the gritty backdrop of the City of Angel’s industrial area. Now Factory93 debuts One Project. After a cancellation in 2020 due to the pandemic, Factory 93’s imprint Secret Project has announced their new two-day SoCal event: Secret Project Presents: One Project premiering on October 2 – 3, 2021.
Factory93 has been debuting special Secret Project events across the country, each with its own flair tied to its host city. Factory93 will once again deliver with One Project. The event will have some of the most cutting-edge house and techno international talents, alongside some of LA’s most beloved underground promoter crews, in the unique raw creative environment of Downtown LA’s Arts District. A new layout and location at 516 S Anderson St will create a more intimate Secret Project experience, with a stage debut yielding a unique 360 dancefloor environment that will house all the artist performances. The never before used space will deliver the urban experience Secret Project is known for, with the all-outdoor event, nestled between the factories, bridges, art-strewn walls and industrial core of the Arts and Warehouse Districts.
Since its inception in 2018, Secret Project has aimed to provide a platform for LA’s underground crews to perform alongside some of the global community’s leading DJs and producers. One Project sees downtown LA’s Lights Down Low founders Corey Sizemore and Richie Panic, Bears In Space fave Stacy Christine and the recently formed Surround crew, comprised of long-time LA faves Heidi Lawden, Jeniluv and Masha Mar, take center stage.
Joining them will be world-class flag bearers for domestic dance floor talent; Detroit techno icon DJ Minx and her mentee and Atlanta flag bearer, Ash Lauryn, the heavenly father daughter project from Robert Hood called Floorplan, and the Texan who conquered Ibiza and beyond, Maceo Plex. The Italian dancefloor punk stylings of LA fave and Life and Death founder DJ Tennis, and Russian techno sensation Nina Kraviz lead the international stars, alongside the boisterous Scotsman Denis Sulta, melodic house star Ben Böhmer, Turkish multi-instrumentalist and DJ, Carlita, Ireland’s euphoric Krystal Klear and the uncompromising techno of FJAAK.
The main Secret Project event will resume in full in Los Angeles in 2022, and is set to host a sold-out edition at the famed Amsterdam Dance Event in October, further showcasing the burgeoning international reputation of LA’s underground dance scene.
Secret Project was launched in 2018 to create a forum to showcase avant-garde and esoteric strains of electronic music in the heart of LA. Its previous two editions have delivered something unique in Los Angeles: a city-center music experience that has long been typically associated with urban centers like Berlin, Amsterdam, Detroit or Barcelona.
