A Guy Called Gerald

Reason Live

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.

Production Masterclass

Record's timestretch for real-world remix projects, practical and creative uses of Record's Neptune realtime pitch adjuster, and parallel processing in Record's mixer to add power to individual parts of a mix. Freemasons have been one of the most prolific producers in UK Dance music over the past ten years. In 2005, they had a huge international club smash with Love On My Mind and have since worked with huge artists such as Beyoncé, Faith Evans and Kylie Minogue as well as having a number eight UK chart hit with their single Uninvited. The duo have also written and produced songs for Alexandra Burke's debut album and have remixed Jamiroquai, Eric Prydz, Moby, Shakira, Luther Vandross, Fatboy Slim and the Eurythmics.
