Biography

Introduction
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) and was an instant rave classic. In 1993 Michel de Hey recognized Jeroen ‘s excellent producing skills and convinced him to release his music on Michel ‘s Immaculate Music record labels. A string of tracks that shattered dance floors and charts followed under many aliases like Grooveyard, Point Blank and his most powerful identity: Secret Cinema.

In search of an identity
The first hit came within a year of signing with Immaculate Music in 1994 on Brave New World Records: The melodic rave anthem Meng ‘s Theme. In later years it made its way on to the ‘Vintage R&S ’ compilation alongside such legends as Model 500 (Juan Atkins), Aphex Twin, Kenny Larkin and Joey Beltram. At this point Secret Cinema was born to vent Jeroen ‘s more refined side as a producer. The first track he released under this alias was his second international hit for ‘94, Timeless Altitude. It sold over 20.000 copies within six months and proved to be more timeless than anyone had expected at the time. It can be a challenge to follow up a success of this magnitude so Verheij came up with yet another identity: Grooveyard- Watch me now was the result. This energetic break beat driven track also made its way into musical history, sold ten thousands of copies and was licensed to dozens of compilations in ‘95. By now Verheij had become one of Holland ‘s most respected producers and started playing mainstage gigs for festivals like Mysteryland and Dance Valley.
