Well, well...we have got quite a treat in store for you this month! It gives us the greatest pleasure to bring you one of the true innovators of the electronic music scene...Gerd Janson. Gerd is the quintessential DJ’s DJ, unearthing the gems that get other music lovers hot and excited. Without a doubt, he is one of the biggest talents on the German circuit. As co-owner of label Running Back and resident of Frankfurts most famous club Robert Johnson with comrade Thomas Hammann, you can expect him to be dishing out simmering analogue house & disco sounds. The word has spread, and he’s being booked all around the world with regular gigs including the legendary Panorama Bar In Berlin & renowned festivals such as Melt! & Timewarp.
When not spinning records he’s known as a prolific music journalist writing for Groove magazine or Spex and is one of the most treasured members of the Red Bull Music Academy...the man oozes class and talent! We hope that you enjoy this adventure through magical electronic music, new & old, as Gerd takes the helm for 4 hours effortlessly coaxing you into his world. Movers, shakers and party makers we are proud to introduce to you the Leeds debut of Gerd Janson!
