Heat UK & The Gallery Present: Fire It Up! - Sunday May 6th @ Koko, London

Reported by Olly @ Trackitdown on April 23, 2007

Teaming up for the first time since their sold-out event at Brixton Academy on New Year’s Eve, Turnmills’ legendary promotion The Gallery teams up with trance masters HeatUK for an exhilarating night of high-octane dance music at the mindblowing Koko. These two London institutions are proud to present Fire It Up! – the country’s most exciting new promotion, spearheaded by the immense talent that is Eddie Halliwell. This is his only confirmed gig of 2007 in London.

Since his early days stunning the crowds at Sundissential and Goodgreef, and with his still talked-about BOSH! covermount CD for Mixmag, Halliwell has always stood out as a different breed of DJ. Not content with simply mixing records together in succession, he pushes the art of turntablism to its limits – embracing all available technology to its fullest, and filling his sets with all manner of scratches, FX, loops and live re-edits. Beatmixing records is a science. What Eddie does is an art.

Joining Eddie are some of the leading lights of the tech-trance movement that has swept the world in recent years. Marcel Woods makes a rare London appearance, bringing the intense electro-fused sounds of tracks like ‘Advanced’ and ‘Silver State’ to the Main Arena, while Holland’s super-producer Fred Baker and Goodgreef’s Adam Sheridan bring their tough, percussive vibes to the proceedings. Greg Downey has been on blistering form over the last 2 years, and his phat trance sound is sure to have the venue brought to its knees. Finally, a spellbinding live set from Italian mastermind completes the superb international line-up.

HeatUK’s legacy at Koko, and formerly Camden Palace, is simply massive. Their parties always sell-out, and are well-known for having some of the most amazing atmospheres around. Don’t miss their first party of the year – with a rare chance to hear some of the greatest trance producers in the world in this amazing venue.
