A Guy Called Gerald (live)
A Guy Called Gerald
Iconic producer A Guy Called Gerald will perform another of his exceptional live show @ Nomad Club London on Friday 15th June â€“ 10pm till 5am
Where do you start with A Guy Called Gerald? A hidden gem, the gateway between Chicago house / Detroit Techno and the UK dance music explosion in the late 80s. He is one of a few special producers who entered dance music in the jacking zone. He is the first UK acid house producer and the first producer to have 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 2 other humans. His collaborations stem from Frankie Knuckles, Goldie, Finley Quaye and Derrick May through to Herbie Hancock, remixed for David Bowie, Lamb, Stone Roses, Black Uhuru, Can, Tricky, Roman Fluegel and The Orb and toured with New Order, Tricky and Bebel Gilberto.
He made one of the greatest dance music records of all time. Voodoo Ray defines an era and as A Guy Called Gerald, trod a path somewhere between down right dirty music whilst all the time pushing the boundaries of the technology at the time with equipment such as the Roland TB-303 bass synthesiser and the TR-808 drum machine.
This all takes place within the intimate surroundings of Nomad Club (58 Old Street, London, EC1V9AJ) The venue has finally completed its sound overhaul & new soundproofing now installed we can go Louder. Add to this a booming new Martin Audio system and we've got ourselves a proper party :)
This isn't just a chance to hear some incredible music up close and personal, it's all about hanging out with your friends in a comfortable space - serious music without serious attitude.
With the resident trio of the night Jason Glanville, JB & Darren Roach
