Produced by Digital Diaspora

On August 4 Digital Diaspora, from their base in Brixton's 'The Brix' at St Matthew's, will host the London broadcast of 'Billboard Live' from Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. As part of the grand opening celebration of LA's new live entertainment venue, Digital Diaspora will provide a live interactive link between the stateside celebrations and an unique live club performance from London. Other cities involved include: New York, Dublin and Paris.

Fusing elements of jazz, dub, hip-hop, techno and funk to create abstract soundscapes, Digital Diaspora will be collaborating with the UK's leading DJ's and musicians taking the progression of live drum 'n' bass to a new level of innovation. The session will include artists: LTJ Bukem (Featuring MC Conrad), A Guy Called Gerald and Marque Gilmore's Drum FM (Featuring MC Tricksta) other special guests.

The London leg of 'Billboard Live', takes place from 11pm till 4am, August 4 and boasts the cream of the UK's drum and bass` fraternity coming live from The Brix to Sunset Strip and the potential 50 million audience on the worldwide web.

This outdoor gala centres around the launch of the Billboard Live night-club, with over 1000 celebs and VIPs and the first time closure of 'the Strip' to accommodate this mammoth event. Digital Diaspora will broadcast audio and visuals via ISDN from London with Diaspora VJs cutting and mixing between LA and Brixton creating an unparalleled transatlantic hybrid
cyberspace broadcast. Two monster Sony Jumbotron, located outside the venue on Sunset Strip will display the event to an audience of over 1000. In addition, Digital Diaspora in
association with Netmare will also provide a live netcast of the event (using 'CU-SeeMe' and 'RealAudio) via the Internet.

'Digital Playground: London To L.A. is the latest in a long line of groundbreaking Digital Diaspora events on the worldwide web using ISDN. The brainchild of Marc Boothe,
Digital Diaspora itself is a network of artists, musicians and writers dedicated to fusing urban culture with new media. Digital Diaspora events have already included Digital Slam I, a live networked event linking the ICA, London and New York's 'Kitchen' and previous ground breaking 'Digital Playground' sessions. Live from Brixton to the worldwide web, the last
session featured a historic fusion of hip-hop legend Afrika Bambaata and UK Drum and Bass pioneer Grooverider and was the first ever net broadcast from a club via the internet .

Then on 25 & 26 August, Digital Diaspora will produce a truly unique event - the first live interactive broadcast from the legendary Notting Hill Carnival, taking the one million strong
street festival onto the worldwide web.

This autumn the story continues with the launch of the first ever monthly networked sessions between London and New York. These will showcase a diverse array of established and
emerging artists in contemporary popular culture collaborating on-line. Leading musicians DJs and visual artists performing simultaneously at the cutting edge of multi-media technology. Later the 'network' will be expanded to include Paris, Tokyo and L.A.

A GUY CALLED GERALD (UK)

Saturday 29.06.96 - 03:00 - Deeday

On the record "Black Secret Technology" the Manchester wonder-boy Gerald Simpson - alias A Guy Called Gerald - bends and stretches voices, beats and bass lines out into time and space. The album, which can best be described as a hybrid of techno and jungle for the feet and brain has been called the best record of the year in sections of the UK music press. It rises above other jungle-like efforts because of its pioneering originality. The speeded-up breakbeats and sounds really are "in tune" with each other - they have almost the same function as African talking drums.

A Guy Called Gerald released the pioneering 1988 minimalistic, acid house album "Hot Lemonade" and later "Automatikk" in 1990. He played an excellent set at Roskilde Festival 1990 - in his acid house days.

News story from the Glasgow Herald:

" At the creative centre of A Guy Called Gerald there is, naturally enough, a guy called Gerald......Gerald Simpson. Straightforward enough, but Gerald Simpson is a guy who's curiously difficult to pin down.

He's a musician, as his forthcoming Strange Fruit engagement will reveal. He's a DJ, as folk at Glasgow's Volcano discovered a couple of weeks ago. He's a re-mixer, as can be vouchsafed by acts as diverse as jazz diva Flora Purim and industrial grindcore merchants Cabaret Voltaire. He's pioneered all forms of dance music, from Chicago house in the eighties to today's drum'n'bass excursions. "
