Born in the UK, but raised in Chicago, Secondcity has a unique pan-Atlantic outlook on House
and Techno music that takes influence from his exposure to both of these musical hotspots.
In his inaugural year, Rowan stormed into the scene with the much-hyped four track EP ‘The
Story’ on Huxley’s Saint’s And Sonnets imprint and a collaboration with Route 94 for the sublime edit of ‘Freak Like Me’. He soon found the likes of Skream, Kenny Dope, MK and Nic Fancuilli all championing his sound.
His 2014 release ‘I Wanna Feel’ has amassed over 30 million plays on Spotify alone. The track picked up support from the likes of Skream, Annie Mac and Zane Lowe and received his first ever UK #1. Later in the same year, Secondcity released ‘I Enter’ on Claude Von Stroke’s‘DirtyBird’, which hit top stop in the Beatport charts.
Alongside these huge releases, Rowan was asked to produced an EP for Nic Fancuilli’s Saved
Records as well as remixes for Carl Cox and ended the year with tastemaker favourite, ‘What
Can I Do’, marking his second release with Ministry of Sound.
