Jeroen Verheij aka Secret Cinema started producing as Meng Syndicate in 1990. His first record 'Sonar System' came out on the Hithouse label in Belgium (ARS). Soon it became a big clubhit and through remixes by Speedy J aka Pullover the record became all the more successful. Because of the unfortunate death of Peter Slaghuis, the man behind the Hithouse project, the co-operation with ARS did not work out to Jeroen's satisfaction.
Jeroen has been playing live since 1993, but when Secret Cinema's 'Volt!' came out in 2000, it was the start of Jeroen's new and restyled energetic live set. A more techno-orientated Secret Cinema only set, different from his former live-sets, wich combined Grooveyard and Secret Cinema songs. After that, Jeroen released his first album in 2001 under the name of Secret Cinema, 'White Men Can't Funk.'
Furthermore, he is busy co-producing. The theme for Rotterdam's Heineken Fast Forward Dance Parade 'Let the Music be your Guide,' created in co-operation with Michel de Hey, hit the Dutch Top 40 Charts. Other jointed projects are Secret Cinema vs. Private Productions,with Robert Kroos, Hidden Rivals and Special Request in co-operation with Mirko 'Miracle' van Dommelen, Starchild in co-operation with Zki and the recent successful collaboration Michel de Hey vs. Grooveyard. The year 2001 saw the international breakthrough for Secret Cinema with the release of SC002, a very techno orientated project extracted from his live-set including the track 'Carton Clip,' his album 'White Men Can't Funk' and subsequently his debut live performances in Ireland, Italy and Japan (Wire festival 2001). For 2003 a busy schedule is already planned with the follow up to SC002,and many live-gigs around the globe, including all the big festivals in Holland and that means many!! Go check out the album. Even more, go check out his live-set!!
