December is here, the countdown to Xmas has begun and over at The Gallery we’re well excited about the month ahead. Not only have we got three massive Friday night parties to round off the year, but then we’re hosting our very own New Years Eve extravaganza at the Ministry of Sound. What a way to round off our first year at our new home and we think you’ll agree that there truly is something for everyone in December. Don’t be shy, get your dancing shoes on and come on down…. You know it makes sense!!!
So to kick start the month in question we have a Gallery line-up of gigantic proportions on Friday 5th December. Having proved a sure fire hit on his previous outings for us at The Gallery including the huge Clockwork Orange Birthday in March at Turnmills, we’re proud to present the return to The Gallery for none other than Boy George. A true hero of the scene, the Culture Club star blew everyone away on his past two visits to us at The Gallery including live impromptu vocals!!! A DJs DJ, George has forged a career so rich in details we simply don’t know where to begin - suffice to say that in the Top 100 Greatest Briton’s poll conducted by the BBC Mr Boy George was 46!!! Seb Fontaine also makes his return to The Gallery, now as a bi-monthly guest. Seb has proved time after time his worth this year smashing the main room with a plethora of sets whether it be early sets at the Global Underground launch or late ones at Ministry of Sound’s 17th Birthday. A firm favourite with The Gallery faithful and someone who knows Ministry better than most! We’re delighted to have Seb on board for this line-up. Joining him will be Gallery resident Gavyn Mytchel who’s wowed us time after time in the Box with his intelligent, warm up sounds doing the business week in week out. Where he finds time to tour Japan, Bahrain, Dubai, Malta, Cyprus and many more international jet-setting destinations we will never know.!! David Newsum rounds off the main room for this Gallery par excellence!
The Bar is hosted by one of the success stories of this years Gallery. Mass Recordings has continued to impress us here at The Gallery not just with their excellent output label wise, but providing some of the best rooms this year. Previous headliners this year have included Twocker, Micky Slim and this month we are delighted to have Jon Carter back at The Gallery for a long overdue appearance in the Bar. Jon is part of the UK old skool alongside the likes of Justin Robertson and Lottie. Part acid house, part techno, Jon’s built up a solid global reputation for delivering the goods time after time, and he’ll undoubtedly do the business yet again this week! Joining him will be Mass main man Kieron Brindley and regular faces Lui Florez, Trigger and Williams & Du Bois. Elsewhere on the night, please go wild and crazy for the Lose Control gang who host the Baby Box, whilst our big faves Plastic Fondu do another excellent turn in the Lounge.
