The Gallery Xmas Party Part 1 - Paul Oakenfold Returns! Dec 11th at Ministry of Sound

Reported by Charlie G [Trackitdown.net] on November 30, 2009

As The Gallery thunders onwards and upwards towards the end of the year we throw our first Gallery Xmas Party on Friday December 11th.  We’re delighted and a little giddy to be welcoming one of the biggest DJs in dance music back to London to help us get all in the festive mood. Please be upstanding for the one and only Paul Oakenfold.

Paul is simply one of those djs who has been there and done it all, arguably the personification of the idea of a superstar dj he has played in every corner of the globe including venues like the Great Wall of China, the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles  as well as touring with the likes of U2 and Madonna. Over the past year Oakenfold has held a Perfecto residency at the Rain Nightclub, the legendary 25,000 square-foot nightclub and concert venue in Las Vegas and recently released ‘Perfecto Las Vegas’ - a double CD set consisting of 25 exclusive tracks, selected and mixed by the main man himself. He has released Grammy nominated albums, wrote film scores for leading Hollywood films including Nobel Son, Collateral, Swordfish, The Matrix Reloaded, Pirates of the Caribbean, Die Another Day, Planet Of The Apes, The Bourne Identity and Shrek II. TV credits include music for Alias, Big Brother and Las Vegas. In short... he’s a genuine legend!!

We are delighted to be welcoming him back to his London home here at The Gallery for what promises to be one of the most special Gallery nights of the year. Joining him is our latest recruit to our ranks of international residents Martin Roth. Martin reacquainted the world with electronic trance with a string of productions in recent years, as his self-proclaimed NuStyle productions and distinctive DJ sets took over control crossing generic boundaries. Having smashed it right royally on his residency launch in September we are delighted to be welcoming him back to round off yet another critically acclaimed year for the German.

Adam White has been a constant force in the world of trance down the years and with a recent string of productions on the Perfecto imprint he will be warming things up right royally for label boss Mr Oakenfold.  Gallery residents Gavyn Mytchel and The Viceroy get in on the act in the Box to round off the lineup for this massive Gallery Xmas Party.

The Bar meanwhile welcomes a Gallery line-up worthy of any occasion including the legendary Steve Lee taking the helm joined by Graeme Lloyd who is rounding off another massive year having played some top draw sets on numerous previous outings at The Gallery including warming up in the Box for Sister Bliss. Marco Del Horno has also rounded another impressive year and will be firing up the Bar with another energy packed set  alongside Gallery warm up specialist Matt Weeks.
