Ahead of A Night in Paradise returning to Ministry of Sound this Saturday, we take a look at the world-class vocalists that will be performing alongside the Paradise Garage DJs.

Christine Wiltshire

Christine Williams was a singer in on disco band, Musique, alongside Jocelyn Brown and three other vocalists. Their biggest hit was "Keep on Jumpin'", which would go on to be sampled by Todd Terry on his seminal house record, "Jumpin'". Musique gained a degree of infamy after their 1978 track "In the Bush" received limited radio play due to its explicit lyrics - the song is actually about gay men having anonymous sex in the woods!

Christine would also have success as a solo artist, most pertinently on the Paradise Garage anthem, "Weekend" by Phreek. The studio release of "Weekend" was mixed by Paradise Garage legend, Larry Levan.

D-Train

This Saturday, D-Train will be performing "Keep On", "You're the One for Me" and "Music". D-Train began as a duo but would go on to become a solo artist. D-Train was a regular at The Paradise Garage. Not only would his music get frequent plays from Larry and the other resident DJs, but he was also frequently found on the dancefloor, living it up with the Garage regulars. D-Train was pivotal in ushering in a new electronic sound and helped lay the groundwork for what would go on to become 'garage music'.

Robert Owens

One of the most iconic voices in house music. Robert's vocals have given emotional depth to some of the greatest dancefloor anthems. Best known for his solo releases "I'll Be Your Friend" and "Mine To Give' he was also a pivotal member of Finers Inc, alongside Larry Heard and Ron Wilson.
As a homage to the late, great, Frankie Knuckles, Robert will be performing Frankie's seminal track "Tears" at A Night in Paradise. This will be a poignant moment as Frankie played his last ever DJ set at Ministry of Sound precisely five years to the day as A Night in Paradise.

Juliet Roberts

Juliet Roberts will be performing the Ministry of Sound classic and 90s anthem, "Caught In The Middle". Both Roger Sanchez and David Morales have done remixes of this dancefloor classic, and they've gone on to become weapons of choice for DJs around the world.
Juliet will be performing "Caught in the Middle" and David Morales' Top 10 Single, "Needin' You" - which actually samples another Garage favourite - Chi Lites - "My First Mistake".

A Night in Paradise will take over Ministry of Sound for 12-hours of bliss on Saturday 30th March, get tickets & more info here.
