We welcome legendary UK producer A Guy Called Gerald debuting "LIVE in SESSION" for the first time in Washington DC.
Over the past five years A Guy Called Gerald has been touring the world bringing his entire production suite into the club for every performance. It's a fluid jam session exploring new rhythms and sounds but always keeping it deep and soulful with one eye firmly on the dancefloor.
When he says live, he means live: “it's not a DJ set - there are no mp3s - no wavs - no aiffs - no preset sounds - you are hearing a fluid freestyle mixdown of my own music and my own individual takes on classics referencing the past - direct at 96kz - the exact quality and set up I use to write and record in my studio.”
Gerald began as one the original members of 808 State and produced the huge crossover instrumental 'Pacific State' in the late '80s at the same time going solo. From the timeless dancefloor hit 'Voodoo Ray' and 'Blow Your House Down', the release that put British acid house on the map, to '28 Gun Bad Boy' and the Juicebox releases which gave jungle a blueprint, to 'Black Secret Technology' and 'Essence', no other British dance music artist since the acid house explosion has produced as many important records as A Guy Called Gerald. His genre busting reputation traces back to his heritage in black dance music, particularly reggae, jazz and electro funk in the underground clubs in Manchester. Of course his early contributions to acid house and techno cemented his place in dance music culture folklore but his sphere of influence also went deep into the beginnings of drum ‘n’ bass, before coming full circle to today and his proto-acid sound, descended directly from Detroit and Chicago. Over the last ten years he has released on definitive labels Perlon, Sender, !K7 and Beatstreet. In 2010 he released his 9th album, 'Tronic Jazz The Berlin Sessions', the follow up to 2006 'Proto Acid The Berlin Sessions' on Laboratory Instinct, descended directly from Detroit and Chicago.
