The sound that took house music worldwide…

A 9-piece ensemble comprising live electronics, brass, percussion and more, The Acid House Orchestra will perform unique renditions of the most defining tracks from the sound's birth in Chicago clubs to its arrival in the UK raves. Expect a live journey through the early sounds of 808 state, A Guy Called Gerald, and LFO right through to the later sounds of The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers.

Following the live show we’re honoured to be welcoming the artist responsible for UK’s first acid house record, A Guy Called Gerald, for a historic extended DJ set.

A Guy Called Gerald is 30 years of dance music incarnate. He is one of a few special producers who entered dance when it was jackin’ and has never let up. He was the first UK acid house producer and achieved the rare feat of having not one but two instrumental dance tracks in the UK charts at the same time. He formed 808 State with a drum machine, a 303, 2 Roland SH101s and two other humans. From the UK’s own acid house anthem “Voodoo Ray” in 1988, to one of jungle’s most iconic albums, “Black Secret Technology”, to “Groove Of The Ghetto” released on Italy’s respected Bosconi label, this man is a self-written bible of dance music.
