Internationally he’s played at Panorama Bar, Watergate, Robert Johnson ,Rex Club, Love in New York and various clubs in Tokyo. With both of the Two Armadillos on board The Zoo Project is giddy with anticipation.
Inspired by hedonistic cutting edge clubs both in the UK and Ibiza, Giles and partner James Priestly launched secretsundaze in 2001. Few know this, but secretsundaze was one of the first promoters to host a party at Gala Night in Ibiza, our beloved Zoo! In a short period of time, secretsundaze became the hottest ticket in town and is now an international success hosting DJ’s such as Ricardo Villalobos, Carl Craig, Steve Bug, Luciano, Ame, Rhadoo, Cobblestone Jazz, Mountain People, Keith Worthy and Jus Ed.
On the production side its Giles’ Two Armadillos project with Martin Dawson that has gained the most attention. Over the last 3 years the duo have appeared on labels such as Dessous, BangBang!, Sthlm Audio, Buzzin' Fly, Motivbank, Four:Twenty, R&S, and secretsundaze music. They have also completed remixes for Dessous (Dan Berkson and James What ft. Robert Owens), The Discowboys (Steve Bug and Vincenzo) and Mood Music (Kiki) and their releases have been remixed by the likes of Sascha Dive, Tobias and Andomat 3000. Giles’s tracks have been licensed to compilations such as Arpiar's mix for Circo Loco’s 10 Year Anniversary; Steve Bug’s “Bugnology 3”; Mathew Dear’s “Body Language” and Claude Von Stroke’s “At The Controls”. He has also mixed and compiled two critically acclaimed mix CD’s for secretsundaze alongside his co-resident James Priestley.
Under his own name, Martin Dawson
has worked with some of the best labels in underground house including Cocoon, Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical, 20:20 vision, Off recordings and Moodmusic. Prior to this he had a fruitful career working under his alternative guise – King Roc – under which he released his debut album in 2009 to critical acclaim. Nominated by DJ Mag for Best UK Producer and Best Artist Album in 2009 his production prowess is not going unnoticed. Although Martin loves to work in the studio his passion for DJing cannot be questioned, with an international career he has played worldwide from West and Eastern Europe to South America, Australia, Asia and Russia. Currently working with the likes of Glimpse, Andre Crom and Catz 'n Dogz and of course his continuing relationship with Giles as Two Armadillos we can’t wait to host King Roc unmasked as Martin Dawson at The Zoo Project.
