After this evening’s boat party on the Thames, Cosmic Gate, Jerome Isma-Ae and Ben Nicky will hail a cab. But with their destination straight to SE1, it leaves little recovery time for any wobbly legs.
However with this stunning line up of Gallery shipmates, music should prove the perfect antidote back on dry land. Starring Cosmic Gate, who return to Ministry after recently completing a landmark tour of North America. With the scene Stateside now well documented – and perhaps alluding to a different musical direction than here, Friday’s performance promises the best of both. Recent groovier material such as ‘So Get Up,’ entwined with carefully chosen classics that The Gallery faithful demand.
Since The Gallery’s epic 2013 finale, Jerome is credited with delving the Box in to new domains of dark and chunky. His broody synths still manage to convey flashes of uplifting brilliance, hence why Jerome is regarded an invaluable asset. Ben Nicky’s previous visit was further in the past - December 2012 to be exact. But London has not been bereft of Ben’s hard hitting ‘Headf**k’ collection. He visited in the same month last year, supporting Paul van Dyk at a sold out Electric Brixton.
Finally special guest for club only, all hail the ‘trance Viking.’ In our humble opinion, Orjan’s previous performance was his best ever to grace The Gallery. Hitting new heights in terms of energy and crowd participation, and crowned by plenty of music from fledgling label ‘In My Opinion.’ Not forgetting the obligatory Orjan Nilsen anthems, ‘No Saint Out Of Me,’ ‘Violetta’ (and ‘La Guitarra’ for the purists).
