When London club Turnmills announced it was faced with closure in 2008, the fate of resident trance night The Gallery was a major concern amongst clubbers across the land. But it continued, moving to the legendary Ministry Of Sound, and today still features some of the biggest names on the scene. Regularly playing alongside them is Gallery resident Lee Osborne, who clearly knows his way around a DJ booth and a studio. More importantly, Osborne clearly knows his audience.
His latest track is appropriately named M.O.S and it’s just how the Gallery fanbase like it – epic, anthemic, and uplifting trance. From the techy and driving build, the atmospheric break, and the full-on drop, it’s certainly a great example of what a prime-time uplifter should sound like. Yet despite ticking all the boxes, there’s something more at work here. M.O.S is one of those tracks that offers a memorable hook and a defining melody, something that will stay with you. In a scene where a track can be classed as old and dated in a matter of weeks, this is one of those stand-out tracks that has potential to stick around for a lot longer, which is just as well, because it’s perfect for a summer of big events and festivals.
