The Secret 7 Show @ Somerset House in London

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 13, 2015
Each year Secret 7 takes 7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and press each one 100 times to 7” vinyl. They then invite creatives from around the world to interpret the tracks in their own style for every 7”. 700 sleeves are exhibited and then sold. You don't know who created the sleeve, or even which song it's for, until you have parted with your cash - the secret lies within!
