February is here already and to kick start the month’s festivities we welcome back the Dutch purveyor of beats, Mr Marco V to London’s Ministry of Sound on Friday 6th February. After once more storming The Gallery in December as well as providing a truly memorable Gallery Xmas CD, Marco is back to do it all over again.
With a real cross section of musical influences and styles this producer / DJ is always a guaranteed crowd pleaser and continues to raise eyebrows with a unique sound that is continually evolving. Never one to be pigeon holed, the MOS’s awesome sound system in the Box provides the perfect surroundings to truly appreciate this legends bevy of anthems and tunage. A recent run of new tunage has proved once more Marco’s credentials as one of the finest and most consistent producers around. Tracks such as ‘Coma Aid’ and ‘A Journey Into Sound’ have been blowing up in the Gallery main room for some time now and we are eager to hear the latest studio offerings from the Dutchman.
Joined by Gallery resident Sister Bliss, providing the perfect warm up to Marco, Bliss continues to wow The Gallery faithful with her main room sound always rocking the joint in every possible way. Her last appearance was the all important midnight set at our massive New Years Eve event where she appeared alongside Faithless percussionist Suddha and brought 2009 in with style. The Box welcomes a debutant tonight in the shape of Ricky Stone, a rising talent from Asia Ricky has been a consistent name the world over and in the DJ Mag Top 100. 2008 saw numerous tours including closing the Beijing Olympics in China.
Another rising star makes a welcome return to The Gallery in the shape of Marcus Schossow. Marcus has impressed on his several visits to The Gallery with his unique sound and productions bringing a new take to the later more trancey sounds we know and love. Warm up resident Gavyn Mytchel gets the Box going early doors in his usual, much loved style whilst The Viceroy continues his main room residency with closing set duties once more.
The Bar meanwhile welcomes headliner Pete Gooding, an ever present name the world over his Global Network radio show is now syndicated worldwide, including Friday and Sunday nights on Ministry Of Sound radio, Global Radio in Ibiza and Push FM in London, amongst many others. Pete has also been very busy on the production front, having recently signed an album project, ‘Doman & Gooding’, along with studio partner James Doman, to Positiva Records. The first single, ‘Runnin'’, is due for release in February 2009 and is already shaping up to be massive. Early support has come from Radio 1’s Pete Tong on his Essential Selection show, while remixes from Mark Knight & Funkagenda will follow soon. Filthy Rich and Young Punx round off a trio of headliners for the Bar with new talent on show from Natalie Parker and James Edwards & Dave Minns. Next door in the Baby Box Evissa provide a Balearic night of musical bliss, leaving the Subbass DJs to rock it out in the Lounge.
