Velocity Press to publish second Secret DJ book
By: Velocity Press
While never claiming to be instrumental, The Secret DJ was around for every stage of the journey and is a continually wry observer of this unstoppable growth. The Secret DJ's signature humour and wit is ever-present in this ascent, charting personal ups and downs as well as the buying and selling of the acid house revolution.
Covering topics as wide as drugs, music production, anthropology, the gentrification of the scene, technology, travel, fame, devaluation, inflation, relationships, technique, festivals, rejection, social media, situationism and hypernormalisation;
The Secret DJ says: "No one in publishing would have the balls to touch this book with a bargepole. It takes courage to speak up. There's not much in the way of reward for telling it like it is, not any more. If you expose an industry, that industry hates you for life with the intensity of the sun. I have nothing but admiration for Velocity Press, they've taken a big risk working with me. I appreciate it greatly. It's good to know there are still people out there willing to stand up."
The Secret DJ: Book Two is published on 4 December 2020 but you can pre-order it now on the Velocity Press website (https://velocitypress.uk/
