Supported by everyone from Sven to Carl Cox to Joris Voorn to Steve Rachmad, Jeroen ‘Secret Cinema’ Verheij is a massively influential producer (especially in his native Holland) and is someone who continues to conjure up genuinely thrilling and innovative music. Perhaps best-known for his work at his always-on-point GEM Records label, Secret Cinema is on something of a purple patch recently, with his last EP, the brilliantly received Séance EP again earning rave reviews across the board. Originally from Rotterdam but now firmly based in Amsterdam, he is arguably in the finest form of his two-decade long career and is recently reaping the benefits of his new studio in the city. We caught up with him recently, as he talked us through his favourite Back 2 Mine tracks…

Usually we come home and start playing some vinyls from my collection. Mostly dreamy trippy wax that gives a warm feeling. So I did just that, just grabbed some vinyls and I made this selection.


Jeremy – Where the Heart Is

This is such a warm and deep release. It makes you feel at ease anywhere. Home…is where the heart is.

Jeremy – Where The Heart Is


Moodmusic – Unreleased vol 5 – It’s a Dawgs Life

Both sides do well as an easy mix in between any record.

It´s A Dawgs Life (Freestyle Man Old Skool Trance)


Evigt Mörker – Högre

Dreamy as I love it. Nice build up and not forcing any weird vibes at any point at all. Love it!

Evigt Mörker – Högre


Raär – Santori

A bit of old school vibes always work, although this is a fairly new release. Fits perfectly in any homely after vibe.

Raär – Santorïサントリー [Who's Susan]


Aphrodisiac – Song of The Siren

Deep spaced out niceness, just always brings pleasure to the mood.

Aphrodisiac — Song of the Siren • Deep House


Choice – Acid Eiffel

One of my all time fav’s, happy to have this in my collection. And a good start for any after.

Laurent Garnier Choice from Paris Acid Eiffel Classic 1993


Slack City – Detox (Hot Lizard remix)

This one just never fails. Sleezy, juicy riffs on a great groove for a solid after glow.
