A Guy Called Gerald
An exclusive live performance from A Guy Called Gerald. To connoisseurs of electronic dance music, A Guy Called Gerald has something like a cult status around him. A hidden gem, the gateway between Chicago house / Detroit Techno and the UK dance music explosion in the late 80s. He is the first UK acid house producer and probably 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.
