A Guy Called Gerald

An iconic name in dance music, A Guy Called Gerald stands out for consistent innovation, excellence and refusal to compromise. A Guy Called Gerald kick started Europe’s acid house frenzy with his ’88 classic ‘Voodoo Ray’ and 'Pacific State' (as part of 808 State) and went on to lay down the blueprint for jungle / drum n bass. Nine albums and 25 years of independence later, he continues to push the boundaries of electronic dance music touring worldwide bringing his «true school» flavour to a world overloaded with pop pap.

His Live In Session shows use a vast patchwork of past, present and future experimenting effortlessly between early acid house through abstract tech breaks into dreamscapes of futuristic oscillations.

«I have decided the only way to give music to the people is raw and straight from the true school. I don't have to hide behind any trend or gimmicks. ie. analogue equipment and vinyl fetishism. I'm sorry to say but I still feel like I'm blazing the way forward only because everyone seems to be stuck in „retrogression“ mode. Maybe they need a stop / start to get them out of the loop? I refuse to compromise when it comes to my sound. I realised that I'm the only real deal within dance music when I found it was impossible for me to sell out. This is the True School.» A Guy Called Gerald

patten (DJ set)

Making future-facing electronic music, patten have been a vital force since they were circulating experimental CDRs in 2006. patten released their debut LP in 2011 to Pitchfork's praise that it «feels like it could exist in a parallel universe».

Relating as much to pop music, club sounds and Industrial textures, Ψ — their acclaimed late 2016 release — is the group’s most accessible and accomplished record to date, and saw them start to take their super ambitious sound into the wider foreground. In 2017, they are presenting us with a brand new daring EP on Warp Records on 12th May (watch the video for Amulet here: youtu.be/zK_1y36jjCg).
