This Friday the Gallery is very proud to present the 3 men that collectively parade as X Press 2. Ashley Beedle, Diesel and Rocky have risen to prominence as cutting edge producers, crossing over with collaborations with the likes of David Byrne from Talking Heads whilst also producing seminal albums that include Muzikizum and Makeshift Feelgood including such massive singles as Lazy, ACDC, Smoke Machine and Muzik Express to name but a few.
These gentlemen have not only set new standards in the studio but broken the mould with djing. All appearing behind a plethora of CDJ’s and Mixers the legendary 3 person, 6 decks, 3 mixer X Press 2 sets have become something of a hugely anticipated treat for the clubland educated who know a good thing when they hear it and yes they are The Gallery headlining the legendary Turnmills main room for an extended set of 3 hours.
As if it couldn’t get any better we have only gone and invited Gallery favourite and First Lady of Faithless the ever welcome Sister Bliss. There is little more that can be written and said about her, a true dj’s dj and a music purist she will set the tone for the evenings proceedings in her enviable and energetic style for sure.
Steve Porter is another highly revered producer / djs who continually sets the pace others try and follow. A believer in forging his own style his Porterhouse genre has seen him mix two compilations under the same name and over the last six years, Steve has amassed a portfolio of over 70 singles and 28 remixes under his name and the many aliases His myriad of tracks have been finding there way into the record boxes of everyone from Sasha, Lee Burridge, Derrick Carter, Carl Cox, Sander Kleinenberg, Mark Farina and Paul van Dyk.
Riven gets the warm up set early doors and as usual is guaranteed to rise to the occasion whist rising producer / dj Frase is handed another end of night musical extravaganza to conduct.
