In collaboration with AWAMU, Digital City is proud to announce the most intimate Guy Called Gerald performance you're ever likely to see, set under Peckham's Bussey Building amongst the towering speakers of the Rye Wax record shop.
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.
The rollcall or artists that Gerald has worked with attest to his 'originator' credentials as the force largely responsible for the birth of British dance music as you know it today. From collaborations with Derrick May, to David Bowie, Tricky, The Orb, the Stone Roses, Cabaret Voltaire, Lamb, Black Uhuru and Goldie, it is G’s own productions and refusal to plough anyone’s furrow but his own which has marked him out.
To this day, he continues to explore what is possible both in the studio and in the club with his performances, which use a vast patchwork of past, present and future, experimenting effortlessly between early acid house through abstract tech breaks into dreamscapes of futuristic oscillations.
Support is pure: Bustmasta BarryDark, Remote & Tentonatom drop the DC residential techno, beats, bleeps, bass, electro, jacking house and disco, while Parallax and guest VJ, Visual Mist bring the cutting edge visuals.
