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.
Although his remixes are relatively enviable including the likes of David Bowie, Cabaret Voltaire, Black Uhuru, Finley Quaye, Lamb, Tricky and The Stone Roses, it is Gerald’s own productions and refusal to plough anyone’s furrow but his own which has marked him out.
AGCG is responsible for the birth of British dance music as you know it today and he continues to tour worldwide exploring what is possible bringing his studio into the club with his "Live" performances.
A Guy Called Gerald continues to release exclusive new music and previously unreleased back catalogue via his website and selected labels such as Perlon, Sender, Laboratory Instinct and Bosconi Records.
Nine albums and 30 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.

Fueled by an enigmatic mystique, Jenö has remained one of San Francisco’s most beloved and sought after DJs for over two decades. Developing a passionate love for music from an early age he spent several years as a punk musician & songwriter, before discovering DJing and falling into the vibrant London warehouse party scene of the mid 80s. Once Acid House fever hit the UK, Jenö never looked back, becoming known for his heady Whoosh parties, and his involvement in the early days of the notorious Tonka Sound System.
Inspired by Tonka’s cheeky f**k the rules attitude, and in search of a more psychedelic groove, Jenö, along with his British cohorts Garth, Markie & Thomas headed to San Francisco in the early 90s. This was the beginning of the now world renowned Wicked Crew, who were instrumental in firing up the SF dance music scene with their now legendary “Full Moon” parties. These wild & free outdoor gatherings were the foundation for an eclectic and soulful underground dance scene, and the driving force of the growing rave community on the West Coast.
By the mid 90s, Jenö‘s musical talents and commitment to the dance floor had helped inspire and define a new “San Francisco sound,” bringing international attention to the city’s burgeoning dance music scene. With all eyes on San Francisco, DMC sought out Jenö’s talents for a mix on their prestigious CD series “United DJs of America.” Joining the ranks of legends Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, Little Louie Vega and Doc Martin, he put together a mix of fresh local music and classic house sounds that helped put San Francisco firmly on the dance music map.
Jenö’s mythical mixing talents have translated far and wide with a diverse international cult following. He has demonstrated these talents on the decks in the premier clubs & festivals across the globe, including Decibel, Symbiosis, Twilo in NYC, The End, Fabric & Ministry of Sound in London, Unit in Tokyo and the Rex Club in Paris. Jenö continues to perform & present music with a unique and psychedelic perspective, DJing regularly across the US, as well as hosting his own musically mischievous cult radio show – Noise from the Void, broadcast with every Full Moon & New Moon.
