Bosconi Night Pres. -How Long Is Now-

'...as a tribute and homage to his legendary figure, some mysterious writer draw G's face on the right side of that building with the shamanic enigma above that giant mural "How Long Is Now", an existential sigh or question that perfectly sums up the uncertain past, present and future of one of Berlin's most important initiatives, as the Tacheles was, and as the things of our life that we love, as the music, can be, uncertain…'

..in memory of Tacheles..

SABATO 1 DICEMBRE 2012
'BOSCONI NIGHT feat. A GUY CALLED GERALD'
ANIMAL SOCIAL CLUB

'How long is now'. Chi è capitato almeno una volta a Berlino in questi ultimi anni non può non essersi imbattuto su questa enorme scritta sul lato del Tacheles, uno dei luoghi simbolo del rinascimento della capitale tedesca post-muro che, come i più informati sanno, di cui da pochi mesi è stato deciso il definitivo smantellamento.

In una città dove tutto cambia improvvisamente, in un moto continuo e inarrestabile, anche il presente sembra già avere un sapore malinconico.

Il primo dicembre l'Animal Social Club in collaborazione con Exe-cute vi invitano a celebrare tutto questo, presentando a Roma una 'Bosconi Label Night' che già si preannuncia epocale. Ad aprire le danze sarà A Guy Called Gerald, artista simbolo della scena rave della “Manchester” di fine anni '80 e inizio '90, in uscita proprio in questi giorni con un disco per l'etichetta toscana interamente dedicato a quel pezzo ormai sparito di Berlino dal titolo eloquente: 'How Long Is Now'.

Debutto assoluto in anteprima nazionale sarà anche il live di Le Macchine, progetto tutto analogico a base di synth e drum machines, che Luca Saponaro (The Heels Of Love / Love Supreme), Cristian Croce e Nicola Mazzetti (The Barking Dogs) presenteranno per la prima volta all’Animal Social Club. Un mix di house, beat disco e richiami afro e psichedelici in grado di far ballare anche i dancefloor più ostili.

Ad accompagnare il tutto l’immancabile live dei Minimono (Fabio della Torre e Ennio Colaci) e i dj set targati Bosconi. Il boss dell'etichetta Fabio della Torre si alternerà ai piatti con i due assi di casa, Riccio e Rufus: garanzia per chi ha voglia di ballare fino alle prime luci del mattino e oltre.

Una line up che ha tutto il profumo di un vero e proprio festival!

...In memory of Tacheles.

DRUM SOUL: Von Freestyle über Jungle bis hin zu Elektronika.
Drum Soul präsentiert ein Line-Up der Extraklasse!

Seine genreprägenden Alben „28 Gun Bad Boy“, „Black Secret Technology“ und „Essence“ hatten einen immensen Einfluss auf die Entwicklung der globalen Dance-Culture. A Guy Called Gerald aus Manchester, der seit den späten achtziger Jahren mit „Pacific State“ (808 State) und der Acid House Hymne „Voodoo Ray“ wegweisende Tunes vorzulegen wusste, wurde in den Neunzigern einer der wichtigsten UK-Drum’n’Bass-Pioniere und ist inzwischen längst Wahlberliner. Sein Album „Proto Acid – The Berlin Session“ (2006) wirkte daher wie ein Zeitsprung und zeigte, wohin das alles noch hätte führen können, wenn damals das Rave-Ding in England nicht gleich so explodiert wäre. Vor zwei Jahren erschien mit „Tronic Jazz The Berlin Sessions” sein achtes Solo-Album.

Mit Craggz & Parallel kommen zwei Künstler aus London, die früher für fröhlichen Live-instrumentierten Liquid Funk der souligsten Sorte standen und nun Techno-beeinflussten, überwiegend auf Analoggeräten produzierten Oldschool-Elektronik-90ies-Drum’n’Bass machen, wie man auf ihrem Album „Turn The Page“ (2010) gut hören kann. Im Herbst 2006 legten sie mit „Northern Soul“ auf Valve Recordings ein Meisterwerk zwischen Downbeat und Drum’n’Bass vor. Auf der zweiten Disc gab’s als knallende Zugabe eine Live Show mit Chris „Jungle Drummer“ Polgase und Andy Waterworth, die ja für die unvergleichlich genialen Auftritte von London Elektricity mitverantwortlich sind. Und dieser Jungle Drummer ist heute bei uns auch live am Start.
Außerdem darf man sich mit Navigator auf eine echte MC-Legende freuen. Der gute Mann geht gerade mit seinem Label On Dis Ting steil und lieferte uns kürzlich mit „Runaway“ die spätsommerliche Debut-Single zum neuen Album. Checkt auch seine Dokumentation „The Evolution Of A London MC“!

Dazu gibt’s DJ Phat Chex, der bereits für Legenden wie Afrika Bambaata und Renny Pilgram arbeitete und für seine ausgeklügelten Breakbeat- und Electro Dance-Shows bekannt ist. Das Line-Up komplettieren der polnische Techno-Künstler Oscar Burnside, der Japan-Berliner Lyo25, der allseits bekannte Applebim sowie unser Resident Delfonic. Das bedeutet nicht weniger als die musikalisch offene Bandbreite von Freestyle über Jungle bis hin zu Elektronika.

Re:Sender #1 Release-Party, Ritter Butzke

Benno Blome (Sender, Senzen, Bar25 / Berlin)

In Zeiten, in welchen das System Techno zu einem D.I.Y.-Parallel-Establishment herangewachsen scheint und Labels und Artists kommen und gehen, steht Mr. Blomes Sender Records mehr denn je als Fixstern am stroboskoperhellten Firmament des weltweiten Clubhimmels für Beständigkeit mit musikalischer Klasse außerhalb von massenkompatibler Stangenware.

Jeder einzelne (Vinyl-)Release des Backkatallogs spricht hier die Sprache eines über Trends und hyperbeschleunigter Releaseflut erhabenen Tribes von Künstlern, denen ein musikalisches Statement und künstlerische Haltung wichtiger sind als Personenkult und Selbstbeweihräucherung.

Da darf nach 13 Jahren konsequent innovativen Outputs, fast 90 Releases und der Geburt der Housespielwiese Senzen bei aller Bescheidenheit ruhig auch mal ein wenig re:flektiert werden. Dazu gönnt man sich nun die Konzept-Serie Re:sender, um die prägnantesten Eckpfeiler der eigenen Geschichte durch Remixer jüngerer Garde in einen kontemporären Kontext zu setzen und diese Kleinode neu interprätiert auf die Floors unseres Universums loszulassen.

Zum Release der Compilation Re:Sender #1 versammelt Blome in der Ritterstraße nun ein Killer-Lineup aus Sender-Artists, bei dem die lebendige Vergangenheit und Gegenwart von Sender in einen produktiven Dialog treten und die Antennen mit voller Sendeleistung auf die Floors des Ritter Butzke ausgerichtet haben.
Die Garde Genre- und Zeitgrenzen überschreitender Heroen des Abends stellen der seit den Anfangstagen der UK-Ravekultur der späten 80's wohl mit einflussreichste und vielfältigste Botschafter des Acid House Manchester'scher Prägung A Guy Called Gerald der hier mit seinem Mitstreiter vor dem selben Background und nicht minder wandlungsfähigen Mastermind Baby Ford gemeinsam der Hütte im Butzke zeigen wird, wie man Innovation in Würde über die Jahre rettet, unterwegs unzählige Genres mitbegründet und formt, diverseste Labels rockt und dabei verdammt tanzbar ist.

Die Brücke in die musikalische Gegenwart Sender's schlagen an diesem Abend der unglaubliche Langzeit-Sender-Acid-Rocker Pan/Tone, der mit seinem Label Cereal/Killers und einer elektrifizierenden Liveperformance im Gepäck sicherlich eine Klasse für sich ist.

Ihm zur Seite steht der der Berliner Vollblut-Drummerboy und Benno Blomes musikalischer Sidekick auf Sender, Jens Bond der immer wieder mit Bomben-Releases auf Highgrade glänzte.

Die würdigen Remixer des auf der Re:Sender #1 vertretenen "Minimal Man"-Klassikers Plastic Smile und umtriebigen Local Heroes Kotelett & Zadak sind im Dunstkreis der Hauptstadt und darüber hinaus mittlerweile mit Bescheidenheit, unermüdlich kraftvollen Szeneaufmischens und tighten Releases auf, unter anderem , Hi Freaks! und Acker zu wohlverdienten Koryphäen hießiger Undergroundkultur geadelt und somit die denkbar geeignetsten Botschafter für das Konzept Re:Sender. Sie stellen zusammen mit dem höchst produktiven und engagierten Tausendsassa SID, der im Kater Holzig sein zweites Wohnzimmer hat , die Basis des Abends für eine zeitgemäße, Interprätation und Re:flektion Ihrer und Sender's Einflüsse im Koordinatensystem Berlin, Chicago, Detroit, Köln, London ...

That's all.

So people: Gather round! RE:TURN TO SENDER! RECLAIM THE ANTENNA! ...

A GUY CALLED GERALD
presented by ELECTRIC UNDERGROUND

Live Upstairs, Fri, July 6th, 11:00pm
Admission: €10 before 12am | €12 after

A Guy Called Gerald is the stage name for the musician, record producer and DJ Gerald Simpson. He is best known for his early work in the Manchester acid house scene in the late 1980s and the track “Voodoo Ray”. At that time, he specialised in techno music produced using equipment such as the Roland TB-303 bass synthesiser and the TR-808 drum machine. Gerald’s Black Secret Technology LP was released in 1995, including contributions from Goldie and Finley Quaye, and is regarded as the first full-length Jungle album ever released. In 1998, the label closed, with Simpson relocating to New York.

PromoterFacebook PageFacebook Event

Details

A visual art exhibition celebrating the early years of acid house in the UK kicks off with a very special event on Saturday 30 June which is also the launch party for a superb compilation of classic British house on Strut Records*.

The event presents the graphic art of DAVE LITTLE; the photography of DAVE SWINDELLS and a private preview of GORDON MASON's acclaimed documentary film ‘They Call It Acid’.

The launch party will also feature a live performance of the first British acid house tune, ‘Voodoo Ray’ by A GUY CALLED GERALD feat. DIANE CHARLEMAGNE**, as well as DJs NOEL WATSON (Delirium), KID BATCHELOR (Bang The Party, Confusion), RICHARD SEN (Strut Records), and other pioneering house DJs alongside current acid house renegades PARIS' ACID BALL (Hannah Holland and Dan Beaumont).

It will be held in Westbourne Studios, an ideal location to exhibit artwork and project it onto triple-height walls and screens, with a 64-seater cinema room, an intimate bar-come-dancefloor and a huge central area which is by turns a performance space, an exhibition area and a chill-out zone to kick back and watch the visuals…
More details will follow shortly.

A Little Summer of Love will be free before 9pm, £8 after (incl £3 donation to music charities)
* ‘Richard Sen presents This Ain’t Chicago, the underground sound of UK house and acid 1987-1991’, will be released by Strut Records on June 25.

The CD will have its launch party at A Little Summer of Love. The sleeve notes and photography are by Dave Swindells.

** A Guy Called Gerald’s seminal track, ‘Voodoo Ray’, is set to be re-released with fresh remixes by A Guy Called Gerald and Francois K on July 2.

Promoter / Pfingstweide

Grosse Namen geben sich in dieser Nacht die Klinke der Pfingstweid-Pforte in die Hand: Verantwortlich dafür ist das Berliner Label Sender Records…

Wo beginnen bei einem Act, welcher sein Leben voller Inbrunst seit Ende der 80er Jahre der Musik widmet: Zuerst war Gerald Simpson Teil von „808 State“, bevor er sich von der Gruppe loslöste und als A Guy Called Gerald seine Solokarriere lancierte. Als Musiker, DJ und Produzent pendelt er zwischen House und Drum ‚n’Bass, ohne aber generell in einem Stil festgefahren zu sein, denn hat er doch auch schon mit Grössen wie Herbie Hancock oder Goldie zusammengearbeitet. Dabei spielte er schon von den grossen House Clubs wie dem Space auf Ibiza und dem Fabric in London, bis hin zu den anerkannten Festivals wie dem Glastonbury Festival in UK. Dass man ihn durchaus auch als stilprägend bezeichnen darf, zeigt auch sein jüngstes Engagement: Seit 2005 lebt der gebürtige Brite nämlich in Berlin und betreibt dort ein eigenes Studio im Kunsthaus Tacheles – ein vor dem Abriss gerettetes, ehemaliges Kaufhaus in der Oranienburger Strasse in Mitte, welches heute ein wichtiges Kunst- und Veranstaltungszentrum mit internationaler Ausstrahlung ist.
Mit Benno Blome kommt zudem der Label Owner von Sender Records mit nach Zürich. Geht es nach dem renommierten Groove Magazine, so definiert niemand das Herz des Techno so wie es Benno Blome schafft. Und dies kommt nicht von ungefähr, ist er doch gleich auf drei Ebenen tätig: Einerseits als Kopf des 1999 gegründeten Labels Sender Records, aber auch als weltweit tourender DJ, und auch als Produzent, als welcher er unter anderem mit Tigerskin und Martin Eyerer bereits Releases hatte. Daneben ist er auch für das Projekt „weltZwei“ tätig.

Ebenfalls von Sender Records kommen zudem auch noch Franklin De Costa, selber Owner des Labels Fusion Records, und Adrian Martin mit nach Zürich.

The LongPlayer #10 | A Guy Called Gerald with pre midi Acid House Workshop
Wednesday, 20 June 2012
19:30 until 23:30

"Stop multi-tasking, sit down, open your ears and do some heavy listening."

Inspired by Classic Album Sundays, a monthly event in North London.

A growing number of music lovers unsatisfied by the way music is enjoyed in a pick-and-mix fashion decided to take action.

The Berlin-based iCrates magazine heard the call and created a fortnightly event with two hosts presenting two theme-based LPs to be listened to in full.

The Longplayer.

In collaboration with the artists themselves who introduce the music coloured with their personal stories, the Longplayer aims to be a collective strike against "'download culture" and the sense that music has just become an endless compilation of random songs used as background noise.

The rules are strict. No talking. No texting. You must listen to every song on the album.

A Guy Called Gerald

Iconic producer A Guy Called Gerald will perform another of his exceptional live show @ Nomad Club London on Friday 15th June – 10pm till 5am

Where do you start with A Guy Called Gerald? A hidden gem, the gateway between Chicago house / Detroit Techno and the UK dance music explosion in the late 80s. He is one of a few special producers who entered dance music in the jacking zone. He is the first UK acid house producer and 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.

He made one of the greatest dance music records of all time. Voodoo Ray defines an era and as A Guy Called Gerald, trod a path somewhere between down right dirty music whilst all the time pushing the boundaries of the technology at the time with equipment such as the Roland TB-303 bass synthesiser and the TR-808 drum machine.

This all takes place within the intimate surroundings of Nomad Club (58 Old Street, London, EC1V9AJ) The venue has finally completed its sound overhaul & new soundproofing now installed we can go Louder. Add to this a booming new Martin Audio system and we've got ourselves a proper party :)

This isn't just a chance to hear some incredible music up close and personal, it's all about hanging out with your friends in a comfortable space - serious music without serious attitude.

Cost / TBC

Three weeks after a strong global reception for its first wave of performers, MUTEK 2012 returns with a second wave that is equally strong in fleshing out the festival’s scope. Joining the growing pool of talent converging on Montreal from May 30th to June 3rd are respected pioneers, hotly tipped emerging artists, adventurous sonic manipulators, and a significant number of Canadian artists who represent the wealth of digital creativity currently at work in this country. MUTEK’s second wave features:

A GUY CALLED GERALD [UK] / ALICIA HUSH [CA] / ATHEUS [CA] / BENOIT & SERGIO [US] / BERNARDINO FEMINIELLI [CA] / CLARK [UK] / CONTAINER [US] / DENIZ KURTEL [US] / DKMD [CA] / ESPRITS FRAPPEURS [CA] / K.A.N.T.N.A.G.A.N.O [CA] / KEITH FULLERTON WHITMAN [US] / KRAUSE DUO [DE] / LARRY JAMES [CA] / LE RÉVÉLATEUR [CA] / LEBOEUF ET LAVIOLETTE [CA] / MAGNANIME [CA] / MARTIN TÉTREAULT & NANCY TOBIN présentent TÉTO [CA] / MOR† [CA] / MICHEL PLAMONDON [CA] / NELLY-EVE RAJOTTE [CA] / SALVA [US] / SENDAI [BE] / SHLOHMO [US] / SIBIAN & FAUN [CA] / SIMON CALLED PETER [CA] / SOLVENT [CA] / THE GULF STREAM [CA] / TONEPUSHERS [CA] / VALENTIN STIP [CA] / WOLF + LAMB [US]

Leading off today’s announcement is British acid-techno producer A GUY CALLED GERALD, a central figure in the first incarnation of legendary trio 808 STATE, whose appearance at MUTEK constitutes not only a Canadian premiere of his “Live In Session”, but also the famed producer’s first show in the country in over five years. At the other end of the spectrum is American composer KEITH FULLERTON WHITMAN, considered by many to be one of his generation’s most critically acclaimed disciples of electronic music’s avant-garde classical roots.

Whitman will be joining Toronto synth-electro veteran SOLVENT (Jason Amm), who returns to the festival after a decade’s absence. Amm will be leading a showcase that includes Whitman, UK Warp act CLARK, American indie-techno producer CONTAINER, and more, to take place at Montreal’s new Satosphere, a truly original planetarium-style dome for digital-arts performance. This showcase will be filmed for the upcoming feature-length documentary “I Dream of Wires”, which explores the resurgence of the modular synthesizer. In the month of May, MUTEK TV will be featuring exclusive weekly excerpts from the film.

MUTEK’s new partnership with Red Bull Music Academy, which began with a successful cross-Canadian tour, comes to full fruition with a three-day Red Bull Music Academy Stage at this year’s festival. Of the exciting collaboration, Red Bull Canada’s Culture Marketing Manager André de Pape says, “MUTEK as a festival provides an exciting opportunity for collaboration with Red Bull Music Academy. Both organizations focus on pioneering artists, unique performances, and music discovery. Our stage will feature participants from past Red Bull Music Academies, in addition to contemporary artists who've helped to shape the sound of 2012 and beyond. It's a diverse lineup that will bring some exciting artists to MUTEK and will look forward to the Red Bull Music Academy in New York this fall.” That line-up features new names announced today, such as bass practitioners SALVA, SHLOHMO, and SIBIAN & FAUN, as well as techno producers SENDAI (featuring Peter Van Hoesen). They join previously announced figures such as KODE9, NOUVEAU PALAIS, PAUL WHITE, BNJMN, NAUTILUSS, DANUEL TATE, and KINK.

No MUTEK festival is complete without international talents on the verge of critical breakthroughs, and today’s additions build upon that reputation in spades. This year the festival spotlights a new generation of exciting American producers, among them Brooklyn label bosses WOLF+LAMB and their current roster highlight DENIZ KURTEL, as well as DFA-affiliates BENOIT & SERGIO. From Europe’s electronic scene, the festival adds Germany’s long-running KRAUSE DUO, a pair closely connected to a family tree that includes The Wighnomy Brothers and Mathias Kaden.

As always, the festival’s commitment to homegrown artists who explore the fringes of sound manipulation stands strong, and this edition’s reach spans further across the country than ever before. Montreal’s enigmatic dark ambient and dub techno producer ATHEUS, a well respected figure on the international scene, makes a MUTEK debut performing his first-ever live set in his hometown. Longtime Quebecois favourites MARTIN TÉTREAULT (appearing this time with NANCY TOBIN) and K.A.N.T. N.A.G.A.N.O. return to showcase new works. Winnipeg is represented by minimal-techno duo TONEPUSHERS, while LARRY JAMES constitutes a collaboration between Vancouver’s Max Ulis and Ryan Trann. Toronto’s upcoming talents have a fitting ambassador in ALICIA HUSH, of the Hushlamb Free Range Radio Show.

All this and more makes up the second wave of performers for what is shaping up to be a banner 13th edition for MUTEK. More performers, along with full showcase details and individual tickets, will be made available on April 17th. Discount passes for MUTEK 2012 are currently available at www.mutek.org until April 17th, at which point the prices rise. A five-day festival passport costs $195 (+ txs & sc), while a weekend pass costs $110 (+ txs & sc).

The Manchester scene in the late 80s radiated from the Hacienda. It was a place which grew to be a breeding ground for the likes of Laurent Garnier and Chemical Brothers and in the Summer of Love the Hacienda had a theme tune called Voodoo Ray. It was A Guy Called Gerald's first release in 1988 and became a seminal classic that put British house music firmly on the map.

He continues to tour bringing his studio into the clubs worldwide playing anywhere from 2 to now legendary 14 hour LIVE sets – no DJ software, no gimmicks, just raw, pure, undiluted AGCG riddums strictly for the dancefloor.

Promoter / NTS Radio

It's been a year since we launched, and we're immensely proud of what we've achieved since last April, not least is the station running smoothly with over 130 shows but we've been out to Spain to broadcast from Sonar, to the Isle Of Wight for Bestival, down the road for Field Day and over to Wales for Freerotation.
On top of that the list of guests we've had in our little studio shack is nothing if not impressive: Thundercat, James Pants, Mark Pritchard & Steve Spacek (both as Africa Hi-Tech and individually), Kassem Mosse, Samiyam, Moodymann, Kyle Hall, Joy Orbison, Kan Zulu, Owiny Sigoma Band, Gilles Peterson, Ron Morelli, Bo Ningen, Roots Manuva and no doubt many more we can't remember.

Not forgetting our own programming that exhibits as much breadth and diversity as anywhere else we know of; with shows ranging from arts discussion pieces to the most weird and wonderful music, and hosts from those who are old hands to those who had never done any radio before.

In honour of all this we're having a party, and we've invited some extremely special guests to join a few hosts from our own roster and we'd love you to join us.

A GUY CALLED GERALD
Where to start... Pioneer of Acid House and producer of the classic 'Voodoo Ray', founding member of 808 State, provided the blueprint for what would become jungle and drum and bass with early releases on his Juice Box label, collaborative work with Goldie and still prolifically releasing music... An undisputed legend, we feel priveleged to have A Guy Called Gerald headline our birthday.

MARCELLUS PITTMAN
We're proud to welcome one of the Motor City's finest to play our birthday, known for his own output across Theo Parrish's Sound Signature and Omar-S' FXHE labels as well as on his own Unirhythm imprint he also constitutes one part of The Three Chairs alongside Rick Wilhite, Kenny Dixon Jr. (Moodymann) and Theo Parrish and with Parrish and Omar-S as the T.O.M. Project - some CV. Famed for his rugged, deep house DJ sets (check his FACT mix here: http://www.factmag.com/2010/11/12/fact-mix-201-marcellus-pittman/) we knew we wanted him for our party.

VERONICA VASICKA
Co-founder of East Village Radio in New York, where she also hosts a weekly show focusing on unearthing synth -based electronic pop music from the 70s and 80s, a genre which has come to be known as 'minimal wave'. Inspired by the music for her shows, 'Minimal Wave' the label was born; forming an outlet for re-issuing her discovered gems. Brought to a wider audience when she and Stones Throw's Peanut Butter Wolf compiled 'The Minimal Wave Tapes' last year, volume two is out later this month. After seeing her play a brilliant set of italo-disco, house and her own minimal wave rarities last year at Huntley & Palmers we had to get her over...
Check out an archive of old Minimal Wave radio shows here: http://www.eastvillageradio.com/shows/nowplaying.aspx?contentid=1280&showid=63754

FUNKINEVEN
You can catch FunkinEven monthly on NTS' airwaves, his show, much like his music, is dedicated to electronic music through the decades from Kraftwerk to the Neptunes via Masters At Work and Prince. Responsible for a slew of heavy tracks on Eglo Records, and more recently his own Apron Records.
Check him out on NTS here: http://ntslive.co.uk/?author=138

KUTMAH
Host of the inimitable Sketchbook Radio on NTS, Kutmah made his name as a talented DJ in LA as part of the dublab crew, one of the key bases in the LA beat movement. Now residing in London, he has just compiled the second compilation in Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Family series. Listen to his NTS show here: http://ntslive.co.uk/?author=27

THESHINING
THESHINING is the united talents of Morgan Zarate and Acyde. Zarate, known as one third of Spacek and off his Hyperdub EP from last year collaborates with Acyde to create music with shreds of hip-hop, psych, soul, check their single on Young Turks 'Hey You' - not only making fine music they combine to make a fierce DJ pairing.

NONSENSE DJ's

Meist unterschätzer Techno-Live Act Berlins, würden wir mal so sagen. Come on in and check it out!

Ein Abend voller Qualitätsmusik!

SABATO 31 MARZO ZUBAR ON TOUR presents
ZUBAR NEVER DIE with us THE STORY
A GUY CALLED GERALD ( Perlon // United Kingdom )
Zubar, Via Salara Vecchia, 65100 Pescara, Italy

A Guy Called Gerald, all’anagrafe di Manchester conosciuto come Gerald Simpson, è un personaggio di punta della scena elettronica. Dopo un passato da collaboratore in uno dei gruppi rave più importanti d'Inghilterra quali gli 808 State e un singolo trascinante uscito per una delle famose session di John Peel nei primi anni '90, Gerald Simpson iniziò ad avvicinarsi alla nuova scena drum&bass inglese, movimento che proclamò l'album Black secret Technology un capolavoro di ritmiche profonde e cariche di energia che ha guidato il passaggio generazionale dall’acid-house alla jungle. Con questo album, A Guy Called Gerald ha dimostrato che il drum&bass in chiave pop è una delle vie migliori per la modernizzazione del soul e del funk. L’ultimo lavoro “To All Things What They Need”, uscito su K7! nel 2005, è un cocktail di sofisticate produzioni dance, che rubacchiano da stili differenti, dimostrando un’eccezionale trasversalità di stili e suoni, dal drum&bass al synthpop, una delle vie migliori per la modernizzazione del soul e del funk.

00:30-06:00 at Mondo, Calle Arlabán, 7
Price: tbc

Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp Madrid presents Kode9, A Guy Called Gerald & Patrick Pulsinger
The application phase for the 2012 edition of the Red Bull Music Academy has started! To pave the way for the New York edition of the RBMA we will touch down in selected spots worldwide to spread the Academy vibe. From March 2 to 4 Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp Madrid will give you a taste what the Academy feels like. After offering offering such an amazing surrounding for last year's Academy, Matadero Madrid will be hosting lectures and workshops once again. Have all your questions about the Academy and the application process answered, learn a thing or two and have some fun along the way. Hyperdub's mastermind Kode9, Austria's mixing wizard Patrick Pulsinger and Berlin-based techno pioneer A Guy Called Gerald will take place on the couch for the daytime RBMA Sessions, and as no Academy day is complete without some proper late night mayhem they'll also come out to play in Siroco and Mondo afterwards.

Si Austria cuenta en el mapa electrónico europeo es gracias a nombres como Patrick Pulsinger. Nacido en la antigua DDR aka la Alemania comunista, Pulsinger se convirtió con el tiempo en representante cualificado de la escena vienesa -Austria será su país de acogida cuando huye de las miserias de la parte comunista de Alemania-, que gracias a sus colaboraciones con sellos del prestigio como Disko B, Mo Wax, Tension, Morbid o R&S, entre muchos otros se ha convertido en el más internacional de los Djs de su país. Sus composiciones de electro o electrónica elegante son el núcleo de las producciones para Cheap, uno de los sellos europeos mas vanguardistas e innovadores de la escena de los 90's.

Cheap Recordings fue creado junto a su socio, y compañero en muchas de las producciones de este sello, Erdem Tunakan, en el verano del 93, para dar cabida a todos los productores de vanguardia que trabajan en Viena. Desde entonces Patrick Pulsinger se ha convertido en uno de los puntos de referencia de la música electrónica europea trabajando con artistas como Robert Hood, Christopher Just, Gerhard Potuznik, Chicks on Speed, Sluta Leta o Herbert Gollini. En 2002 presenta un álbum con un título larguísimo, Presents - Easy To Assemble. Hard To Take Apart. The Album. In The Shadow Of Ali Bengali y está editado en Zomba Records donde demuestra sus buenas artes con el nu jazz. En marzo de 2007 edita el que será el último capítulo de su serie Dogmatic con Sequences - The Series 1994-2006. Una colección de tracks en los que Pulsinger demuestra su interés por el jazz más abstracto. En otras palabras, 'high-tek-jazz' de muchos quilates.

A Guy Called Gerald es el nombre artístico del músico, productor y DJ Gerald Simpson (nacido el 16 de febrero de 1967 en Moss Side, Mánchester, Inglaterra).

Es más conocido por sus primeras obras en la escena acid house de Mánchester en los años 1980 cuando formaba parte del grupo 808 State. Comenzó su carrera en solitario hacia el final de esa década, labrándose una carrera gracias a grandes éxitos como el tema "Voodoo Ray". Posteriormente se especializó en el techno, muy influido por Detroit, produciendo música utilizando equipo clásico como la caja de ritmos TR 808 o el sintetizador de bajo TB 303. Está considerado como una figura importante en el nacimiento de las escenas hardcore y jungle en Londres

03 de Marzo
Hora: 16h.
Institución:
Matadero Madrid

RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY. Los participantes de esta pequeña Academy tendrán la ocasión única de trabajar mano a mano con el icono de la música electrónica Gerald Simpson (alias A Guy Called Gerald). Fundador de la banda mancuniana 808 State, Simpson ocupó en 1988 los puestos más altos de las listas de ventas con ‘Voodoo Ray’, que pronto se convirtió en himno del frenético acid houseque nacía en aquel momento. En 1993 asentó las bases deljungle con el LP de darkbeat experimental 28 Gun Badboy y dos años más tarde con el aclamado Black Secret Technology, ambos publicados en Juice Box Records. Como uno de los productores más reputados del Reino Unido ha colaborado con artistas como David Bowie, Lamb, Goldie o Tricky. En 2010 publicó su noveno álbum, Tronic Jazz: The Berlin Sessions (Laboratory Instinct).

FUNKENFLUG´S SENDER NIGHT
Saturday, 4 February 2012

Feldstrasse 66 (5.Stock), 20354 Hamburg, Germany

Funkenflug auf Sendung – live aus dem Bunker

Erstmal noch vorweg einen Dank an die tollen 24 Std mit Euch am 1.1 gaaanz großes KINO....daher geht´s gleich weiter mit:

Das erste Fernseh, die Jüngeren werden sich noch erinnern, kam aus dem Bunker Feldstrasse, da saß der NDR drin, nach’m Krieg. Weil schön hoch, super Sender, das Ding.

Zur selben Zeit (gefühlt, in Wirklichkeit: vor 12 Jahren) gründete BENNO BLOME in Köln mit Blick auf den Fernsehturm das Label SENDER und zog damit um nach Berlin. Wer Herz und Verstand und sehr guten, strammen Techno auf Tasche hatte, sendete von da an auf SENDER RECORDS.

So liest sich der Releases-Katalog wie das Wer-is’n-wer der deutschen Elektro-Geschichte. Mit dabei A GUY CALLED GERALD, PAN/TONE und BENNO BLOME, die ihren Sender am 4. Februar in Terrace Hill aufbauen und die alte Sendestation Bunker wieder zum Strahlen bringen, hast du nich gesehn!

Der Typ, der Gerald genannt wird, ist seit 1988 dabei, also von Anfang an. Sid LeRock, der sich auch Pan/Tone nennen lässt, war einer der ersten auf Sender, ist also auch ein alter Hase im Geschäft. Benno Blome will Benno Blome genannt werden. Was die drei Jungs verbindet: Sie laufen keinem Trend hinterher. Und das hört man. Da werden Nägel mit Köpfen gemacht!

Samstag 4.2.12 Terrace Hill, Bunker Feldstraße, auf Sendung:

Sound of Manchester feat A Guy Called Gerald & Jon Dasilva + Drunken Buffoons (Malmö)

Fre 3 Feb

A Guy Called Gerald (Perlon, Labratory Instinct, !K7) är en av få inom den elektroniska världen som bär titlarna legend och pionjär med lika rakryggad som ödmjuk hållning. Hans epokgörande ”Voodoo Ray” tillhör de mest bootleggade skivorna i dansmusikens historia och formar ett stycke acid house historia levererad från Manchester i konserverad form, när han var en del av lika legendariska 808 State.

Geralds innovativa period under senare delen av 2000-talet för honom ständigt på turnér till Japan, USA och regelbundna gigs på Berghain, Fabric och många andra av världens största klubbar.

Han är albumaktuell med sin åttonde fullängdare ”Tronic Jazz – The Berlin Sessions” utgiven på tyska Labratory Instinct, och albumet har fått lysande kritik i Mixmag, DJ Mag, BBC Music Online, Boomkat och många fler.

Genom sina nätbaserade labels SUGOI och PROTECHSHON fortsätter Gerald släppa nya och exklusiva låtar, SUGOI med en fokus på experimentell dance och PROTECHSHON med fokus på jungle och breakbeat. Gerald har utvecklat en unik metod att använda sig av programmet Reason på två laptops under sina live-set, där han som en Picasso väljer ”färg” ur sina två ”burkar” och mixar dem live, en oerhörd dynamisk och innovativ teknik. A Guy Called Gerald är en legend som inte får missas!

JON DASILVA
Den legendariska klubben Fac 51 Haçienda i Manchester blev odödlig genom New Order, Joy Divison och inte minst, filmen 24 hour party people. Haçiendas resident-DJ sedan två decennier, Jon Dasilva, var en av arkitekterna bakom denna mytomspunna klubbkoncept och hans tidiga set i slutet av 80-talet/ början på 90-talet bidrog starkt till housemusiken och DJ-kulturen som vi känner den idag.

Fac 51 betecknar katalognumret Factory 51, som avser just klubben Haçienda, och visar på hur intimt förbunden klubben Haçienda var med mytomspunna skivbolaget Factory Records med bolagsbossen Tony Wilson och monsterproducenten Martin Hannett som spjutspetsar. Vi ska kanske droppa att Joy Division, New Order, Happy Mondays, Primal Scream, Madonna, Laurent Garnier, Sasha med flera gjorde några av sina första bejublade framträden på Haçienda, som började som en konstkulturlokal och växte till världens största och, enligt många, bästa klubb och det är även därifrån som genren Madchester kommer. De har fortsatt att inspirera artister, DJs och producenter världen över och att vi får äran att presentera ingen mindre än Jon Dasilva, som var resident på Haçienda fram till klubben slutligen stängdes 1997. Jon turnerar flitigt världen över med Haçienda World Tour och egna projekt, remixar och remixas och har tjugo års skivspelande bakom sig. På senaste fullängdaren ”Love Is All We Need” som utkommer i Juli tar Jon hjälp av sångaren Donald Vaugh för att innovera och återupptäcka sina rötter inom house och göra en houseklassiker som aldrig fanns. Genom ett öppet och äventyrlig sinne bibehåller Jon Dasilva ett fräscht sound av acid house som slipats till perfektion genom hans aldrig sinande engagemang för musiken, så bring on ya danceshoes, mate!

Obs, tiderna är ej exakta, kom i tid!

23:00 A Guy Called Gerald (UK)
Den brittiska skivproducenten och DJ:en Gerald Simpson, mer känd under artistnamnet A Guy Called Gerald, räknas som en av pionjärerna i acid house-vågen som uppstod i Manchester i slutet av 1980-talet och är mest känd för sin banbrytande danssingel "Voodoo Ray" från 1988. Sedan dess har han hunnit med att släppa ett gäng album.

22:00 Jon Dasilva (UK)

A GUY CALLED GERALD

イギリス、マンチェスター出身で現在はベルリンを拠点とするA Guy Called Gerald。25年に及ぶキャリアで9枚のアルバムをリリースし、DJ/ライブアクトとして世界各地で活躍するベテランアーティストである。reggaeやjazzをバックグラウンドに、detroitやchicagoから影響を受けたGeraldのサウンドは一度聴けば感情が刺激され、体をゆさぶられるエネルギーに満ちている。

初期808 Stateの一員としての活動、更には名作“Voodoo Ray”のリリースによりイギリスにacid houseムーブメントを巻き起こしたGerald。黎明期のhouse/technoシーンを支えた後にはdrum 'n' bassの源流ともいえる“28 Gun Bad Boy”をリリースし新たなサウンドを切り拓いてきた。また、最近ではPerlonやSender、Beatstreetといったレーベルから新作をリリースする傍らで、自身のレーベルの初期作品をオンラインで配信するなど、現在も現在進行形のアーティストとしてシーンの先頭をひた走っている。2010年にリリースしたアルバム“Tronic Jazz: The Berlin Sessions“は最新のソフトウェアを駆使しつつも80〜90年代のテイストを随所に感じさせる作品に仕上がっており、時代を越えて活躍し続けるアーティストとしての力量が存分に発揮された力作である。

An innovator, still innovating. A musician, still resonating.

From ‘Voodoo Ray’, the track that practically defines acid house, to modern day live gigs that will become the template for DJing of the future, this Berlin-based, Manchester-born pioneer, with 9 artist albums in a 25 year career, is an international name that has defied genres and continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in the world of electronic music, both in the studio and in the club.

Music is a way of life for A Guy Called Gerald, an individualist since childhood, when he refused to conform to how a piano should be played, he instead began a personal adventure exploring new rhythms and sounds as well as testing the often disregarded relationship between sound and body. In other words discovering and challenging the shared moods and emotions of people in a club, who are quite literally on the same frequency each time a different pulse, rhythm or tone is introduced.

His genre busting reputation traces back to his heritage in black dance music, particularly reggae, jazz and electro funk. Of course his early contributions to acid house and techno cemented his place in dance music culture folklore but his sphere of influence also went deep into the beginnings of drum ‘n’ bass, before coming full circle to today and his proto-acid sound, descended directly from Detroit and Chicago.

On top of releases on seminal labels like Perlon, Sender and Beatstreet over the past 2 years, Gerald continues to release exclusives and rare back catalogue via his web-based labels A GUY CALLED GERALD RECORDS, SUGOI and PROTECHSHON.

An iconic name worldwide for sure, but it is as a forward-thinking pioneer that 20 years later A Guy Called Gerald is still leading the way, one step ahead of the pack, shaping the future just like he shaped the past.

ARTIST

A Guy Called Gerald: ア・ガイ・コールド・ジェラルド

イギリス、マンチェスター出身で現在はベルリンを拠点とするA Guy Called Gerald。25年に及ぶキャリアで9枚のアルバムをリリースし、DJ/ライブアクトとして世界各地で活躍するベテランアーティストである。レゲエやジャズをバックグラウンドに、デトロイトやシカゴから影響を受けたGeraldのサウンドは一度聴けば感情が刺激され、体をゆさぶられるエネルギーに満ちている。初期808 Stateの一員としての活動、更には名作「Voodoo Ray」のリリースによりイギリスにアシッド・ハウス・ムーブメントを巻き起こしたGerald。黎明期のハウス・テクノシーンを支えた後にはドラムンベースの源流ともいえる「28 Gun Bad Boy」をリリースし新たなサウンドを切り拓いてきた。また、最近では [Perlon]や[Sender]、[Beatstreet]といったレーベルから新作をリリースする 傍らで、自身のレーベルの初期作品をオンラインで配信するなど、現在も現在進行形のアーティストとしてシーンの先頭をひた走っている。2010年にリリースしたアルバム『Tronic Jazz: The Berlin Sessions』は最新のソフトウェアを駆使しつつも80〜90年代のテイストを随所に感じさせる作品に仕上がっており、時代を越えて活躍し続けるアーティストとしての力量が存分に発揮された力作で ある。

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.
