London-based, Russian-sounding Tania von Pear has been named as the new house resident for Turnmills' long-running prestigious club night The Gallery.
It was pure deck dedication that got Tania her new position, having impressed the club management for three years on the trot with her Going Places club night.
She's been running the night in the club's T2 backroom for three years.
'Official house resident'
Turnmills' boss Danny Newman explained: "Tania has been a loyal servant to the club over the years and we felt it was about time to make her 'official house resident' for The Gallery - the club night she's served so well with Going Places."
Tania will represent The Gallery both in the UK and internationally and recently held a party at the 3000 capacity Movistar Arena in Barcelona.
Tania told DJmag.com she thought this year could be a big year for her.
"My residency and the Going Places parties are going really strong," she said.
"We recently celebrated our 3rd birthday by taking over the whole club again with a headlining set from French techno king Agoria, and we're planning another two massive bashes in 2007.
"On the production front I am finally getting my arse in gear after a few irregular releases on my label Pear Music."
A remix of Nathan G's 'Chasing Rainbows' is due out on Kinky Vinyl soon, and Tania has started a new 'trouse' project with Graeme Lloyd, that is a mixture, of course, of house and trance.
Tania is starting to build a name for herself around London too, having recently rocked Renaissance's party with a three hour set.
Amazingly she still managed to pull it out of the bag, despite crashing her car on the way to the gig.
Ms. Pear is also in the process of starting a new Sunday night residency in the capital that will allow her to "take on a deeper, techier flavour."
