November is kick-started at The Gallery with another trademark fusion of sonic excellence courtesy of some of the world’s finest DJs and producers. No strangers to bringing together a whole range of dance music’s finest to create a club night unrivalled in terms of progression, quality and cutting edge music; this Friday 7th November at Ministry of Sound, The Gallery turns its hand to yet another example of just that, with an too rare set from the legendary Green Velvet at the top of the stack. The ‘La La Land’ hero is one of techno’s original and best purveyors. That track is still synonymous with the former green-haired DJ/producer and the Chicago star remains one of the influential players on the scene all these years later. The Gallery has always admired GV’s rapport with the crowd and his breath-taking skills behind the decks, and would you believe that this week’s set will be his debut performance at Gallery HQ, making the night an even greater spectacle. And with the power of the Box’s illustrious soundsystem, whatever you do... you don’t wanna miss that!!
Gallery main man Tall Paul is of course an ever present figure at the Ministry of Sound and after smashing the main room on a rare outing from his normal home in the Bar we felt it only prudent to get him back to do it again. A hard one to pigeon hole musically, Tall Paul is one of the best main room DJs - time after time blending a real mixed bag of upfront, utterly danceable tunage to a huge effect. Tonight also marks the return to the Gallery fold of one of Turnmills and The Gallery’s favourite sons, Fergie. From his early days at the legendary after-hours Trade to his recent Excentric parties at The Gallery; Fergie is a man on a mission. With a techno infused sound that is making waves across the scene and his own label and parties we are delighted to welcome him back and to showcase a true talent. Never to be doubted as a DJ par excellence we implore you to check out some of his recent tunage such as ‘Ireland’ and ‘Anon’ and we think you will agree the Box at Ministry is in for a real treat from Ireland’s best. To complete the techno tip we welcome techno powerhouse and critically acclaimed DJ/producer Pedro Delgardo. A real favourite with the world’s biggest and best jocks (you only have to see Carl Cox’s SW4 preview video for proof!), Pedro runs the world renowned Ying Yang Recordings and is a regular across the globe with his Ableton DJ sets causing havoc on the biggest and best dancefloors. Having played earlier this year at Sander van Doorn’s album launch and with a regular radio show on Paul van Dyk’s VONYC platform Pedro is becoming an ever popular figure and is charged with bringing the night home in his enviable style!
The Bar is hosted by RPM who continue their recent run of good form and big events by bagging man of the moment and headliner Micky Slim. Having enjoyed another massive summer, resident in Ibiza for Judgement Sunday and dates at pretty much everywhere there is to be; Micky is a true entertainer and crowd pleasing DJ. With a bevy of massive tracks, remixes and re-edits always to hand he will be leading another mad session in the bar so expect the usual behaviour. Joining him will be residents RPM DJs, Alex Hero, Blend DJs and Farserelli. The Baby Box meanwhile welcomes Soul Solutions with DJ appearances from Alek West, Steve Bentley, Ben Carton, Rich C, Jeuce and Ses Memhi. Whilst the Lounge gets busy to the now well established and always mad Plastic Fondu with DJs Sam Read, Paul TJ, Dan Goss, Wayne Ritchie, Charli DJ and G1.
