A guy called Gerald (K7! - UK)

OSCILLOSCOPE a l'honneur d'accueillir une légende vivante : A Guy Called Gerald.

Gerald Simpson est considéré comme un des producteurs les plus innovants. De l'acid-house à la drum'n'bass, Son influence est internationale et sa musique a toujours évolué en tirant les nouveaux styles vers le haut. A la fin des années 80, Gerald entre dans l'histoire en signant 2 tubes planétaires : " Pacific State " avec 808 State et puis aussi et surtout "Voodoo Ray", que beaucoup considèrent comme l'hymne qui a lancé le mouvement Acid House. C'est une star. Pourtant, Gerald retourne vers l'underground. En 1993, il sort "28 Gun Bad Boy", un album pionnier, qui pose les bases de ce qu'on appelle la drum'n'bass. En 95, l'album "Black Secret Technology" devient un album culte du son urbain anglais. Depuis, il multiplie les collaborations : David Bowie, Tricky……

Son dernier album "Essence" est une perle, à la fois deep et sexy, où la soul se fond au breakbeat.
Sa prestation sera un des temps forts du festival !

"Een jaartje geleden gok ik was ik in Paradiso, Amsterdam naar een concert van Bebel Gilberto gegaan. Als voorprogramma was er een dj-set van A Guy Called Gerald, ik weet niet zeker of hij alle muziek ervandaan speelde maar het oplichtende appeltje bij zijn draaitafels zag er superstrak uit (in hoeverre is een iBook overigens te gebruiken voor mixen, is meerdere geluids in- en uitgangen geen probleem?).
Heb meteen het programma geprobeerd (had hem al een paar dagen te downloaden in mldonkey staan) en moet zeggen er is vast heel veel leuks mee te doen, maar ik snap er nog niets van."

From http://www.laweekly.com/ink/02/32/live-babcock.php:

"A GUY CALLED GERALD
at the Conga Room, June 19

Gerald Simpson looks down from a loft-level DJ booth in that beautiful memory, when hundreds of bodies used to pack themselves inside the rinky-dink enclave of the Pink, where Raymond Roker threw an essential drum & bass night called Science. With the venue's narrow, high-ceilinged expanse and walls of industrial brick, it seemed like we danced beneath a city bridge while the Monday-morning skyline stood unconscious. And the music was great, unimaginable at times; a U.K. originator like Simpson would visit, let his records reverberate the music's black secrets and technology, and give an international magnitude to a burgeoning local jungle scene.

Time went by, Science moved a few times and then closed, and it's hard to determine what changed more, the records, the DJs or the listeners. The question didn't dissuade Simpson's fans from picking up his 2000 full-length, Essence, an album with so many soft-sparkle gems that many were certain d&b would survive in our bedrooms if not beneath darker city bridges. Meanwhile, you have to get out of the bedroom; you hear that A Guy Called Gerald is coming to town and think that's a good opportunity. But with a handful of fine drum & bass clubs still kicking in the city, what the hell is he doing at the Conga Room? "To play some samba-y, Latin-y, jazzy stuff, just to get away from the regular breakbeat groove for a while," he says, perhaps knowing that he moved to d&b to get away from his early acid house stardom, and then released a (pretty great) mix album last year of early soul records.

But he definitely sees some long faces in the sparse crowd tonight. "Sorry, I didn't think this was that kind of place." He's right, of course. The Conga isn't a club for drum & bass, but if your next album is going to meld electronic and samba rhythms, this is a good venue for you. (Tommy Nguyen) "

28 Feb: Bebel Gilberto / A Guy Called Gerald / Nitin Sawnhey, Irving Plaza, Manhatten, New York, USA

Details

Irving Plaza, 17 Irving Pace, New York, USA

Music
what: Bebel Gilberto with DJs A Guy Called Gerald & Nitin Sawnhey
when: Thur 2.28 (8pm)
where: Irving Plaza (17 Irving Place, 212.777.6800)
price: $26

Although her dad is Brazilian-music patriarch Joao Gilberto, Bebel is actually an NYC native, and her homecoming next week promises sparks of the sultry sort. Her solo debut last year, Tanto Tempo, smoldered with passion, as it was fanned by beats from (Brazilian-born) Amon Tobin and Suba. For this show, she taps recent New York transplant A Guy Called Gerald to turn the tables behind her with his future-soul dexterity. London's Nitin Sawnhey, who just released the sublime Indian electro-acoustic album Prophesy, sets the night's mood on the decks. When she was 9, Bebel played Carnegie Hall with her songstress mom Miucha and some cat named Stan Getz, so if it's chops you desire, look no further. Certain to sell out. (ED)

"She last toured the U.S. in 2001-2002 with A Guy Called Gerald, selling out venues including New York City's Irving Plaza and The Fillmore in San Francisco."
