Hosted by Vaccine presents “Best of UK”
The news in simple, on Friday 14th December, Oakenfold is back at Turnmills!!! Having tore it up at the recent Perfecto party in October, and having jumped back up in the new DJ Mag Poll, the man who can, returns to his London (DJ) home to celebrate Xmas with the people who matter... The Gallery faithful!! This is Part 1 of The Gallery’s Christmas Parties (Part 2 is next Friday with new No.1 jock Armin van Buuren) and we couldn’t think of anyone we’d rather spend it with that Mr Paul Oakenfold – the people’s champion!!! Perfecto have just re-launched his Biography and Greatest Hits album and unsurprisingly, both projects have received rave reviews!! But DJing has always been his favourite environment and we can’t wait to get Oakie back behind the decks!!
Now, it wouldn’t be Christmas without the Gallery residents getting behind the ones and twos and so please step forward Sister Bliss to join the action. What a year it’s been for the leading lady of Faithless, but then we say that every year!!!! A consistent Turnmills crowd pleaser for over a decade, she’s constantly blowing us away with her cutting edge sets.... and with Bliss on board, this really should make it a truly unforgettable night to remember!! Meanwhile, Gareth Emery continues his assault on the trance scene having again charted highly in the new DJ Mag poll (he was invited to play at the awards ceremony too, the jammy git!!) Gareth also continues to set the pace in podcasting, whilst his 5am imprint continues to release a bevy of heavily supported records. He’s also pushing new boundaries with a series of new sub labels and the man known to many, as simply GTR, is truly coming of age. We’re delighted to have him back at The Gallery. Next up is Richard Durand, who was picked by Vaccine to play back in April and has since exploded on the global scene, following a spate of remixes including his reworking of Tiesto’s ‘Lethal Industry’ as well as producing a series of hot original records. Tough, techy and full of re-edits and exclusives his sets are becoming a ‘must hear event’ - so don’t miss out!! This recognition was further recognised as Richard went straight into the Top 100 this year and we welcome him back for another main room appearance. Early doors action comes from Bruno Lawton, one of the original Gallery DJ competition winners and the 6am finale comes from Gallery super resident Gavyn Mytchel – who knows a thing or two about doing it first thing in the morning!!!
T2 sees the last outing of the year for Dirtbox welcoming not only the usual array of ever popular residents in the form of Alex Collings, Tim Cullen, Pete Whitehouse and Tracy Caldwell, but also a headline appearance from the Trophy Twins. The boys who shot to notoriety with their funky backroom sets and their much revered Residency show on Radio 1 are getting all festive with us for our big Xmas bash. Regular collaborators in the studio with the likes of Chris Lake and Funkagenda this year saw the release of ‘I Get Around’ and ‘Starz in their Eyes’, so expect a smattering of new studio beauties to get a good airing for this festive Dirtbox.
Finally in T3, Vaccine take over for the last time this year with a “Best of the UK” line-up guaranteed to showcase one or more of the next big things. Deck wizard and Goodgreef resident Barry Connell returns having built upon his enormous success including regular sets at Judgement Sunday and also warming up for Tiesto in Scotland. Discover’s Neal Scarborough makes an overdue London debut. He’s the man behind tracks such as ‘Stung on the River’ and one half of Inertia (them of ‘The Chamber’ fame) and he’s gaining huge recognition including being asked to remix Art of Trance’s classic cut ‘Madagascar’. Vaccine resident The Viceroy joins the throng together with a range of other producer / DJ talent including K.A.R.L., Karl G, Will B and a debut for KOTO. Look out for free Mince Pies!!
