It was a dark and chilly Friday November night in South London at Ministry Of Sound for Kitchen Disko’s Ibiza Reunion at the famous weekly Gallery party and it felt a far cry from Ibiza back in the summer.
We were looking forward to a catch up with recent Uneek Ibiza interviewee Kirstin Keegan (check out her interview here) who was playing in the Baby Box room. When we finally entered the club (it had been evacuated due to a fire alarm) we found ourselves listening to Kirstin’s set in the Baby Box. It was a busy and buzzing Friday night. As usual Kirstin rocked the room, playing the likes of Man Without A Clue – Baby, Darius Syrossian – Hanns Trippy, Eats Everything feat. Tiga vs Audion – Dancing (Again!) and Kydus – Transatlantic. It was an amazing and uplifting performance. Kitchen Disko’s Ibiza Reunion 2015 in association with Trackitdown.net in the Baby Box also featured Nick Coles, Beat Maneuva, Che Hashimi, Manley & Sheldon and Ryan Beer on deck duty. They promised to bring Eivissa vibes and summer nostalgia, and they did just that!
The 103 and Loft rooms were also open with, amongst others, the likes of Gallery stalwarts Tall Paul and Gavyn Mitchel. In the main room, Aly & Fila were playing an incredibly epic trance show running across the whole evening, a 6 hour set no less! Prior to their set, they said, “ever since we started playing for The Gallery in Turnmills, then at Ministry of Sound, one of our ambitions has been to play a set from start to finish – all night long. This is a UK exclusive and a night that we are very much looking forward to”. Suffice to say, they rocked it, playing, amongst others, Tiësto – Adagio For Strings (James Dymond Rework), Des Mitchell – Welcome To The Dance (Paul Denton Rework), Above & Beyond pres. OceanLab – Sky Falls Down (Armin van Buuren Remix), Reflekt feat. Delline Bass – Need To Feel Loved (The Thrillseekers Remix), Push – The Legacy and Ferry Corsten pres. System F – Out Of The Blue (Future Antics Remix).
The beauty of The Gallery @ MOS is there’s 4 rooms of brilliant music, so it was easy to stay through until closing at 6am, we had a top night!
