A Guy Called Gerald
nauti.cool by nature return for their monthly veritable rave off, with a feminine twist on the 90s revival, keeping it more trainspotter paradise than club fromage.
Tonight, joining their 90s house party is the legend that is A Guy Called Gerald. With a career spanning more the 20 years and having dipped his toe, very successfully & influentially, into pretty much every genre going from acid house to techno to jungle to breakbeat to electronica, who better to take it back to the 90s and play some of the tunes that have influenced him over the last 2 decades. This musically Manc hit the big time with acid tune Voodoo Ray in the late 80s and since then has been unstoppable. This is a very rare chance to catch him in this 200 capacity basement hub and get up close and personal with one of dance musics finest pioneers.
Sowing the seeds of jungle and drum and bass, Gerald launched Juicebox Records in '91 and proceeded to take the label on tour in '96. By his side for the 4 week stint was hype man and warm up DJ Normski - face of 90s culture show Dance Energy and general nice man about town! So 15 years on, who better to get the wheels oiled for the big man, If you can get your hands on their legendary set for One in the Jungle on BBC radio 1 you will know what a treat you could be in for tonight. With a mic to his mouth and some vinyl in his hands this man will remind you just how it went down back in the day.
nauti.cool and Hamish Pritchard are also on hand to get you warmed up with some new jack swing, rnb, hip hop and pop.
