A GUY CALLED GERALD
An iconic name in dance music, A Guy Called Gerald stands out for consistent innovation, excellence and refusal to compromise. A Guy Called Gerald kick started Europe’s acid house frenzy releasing the first UK acid house record, the ’88 classic ‘Voodoo Ray’ and 'Pacific State' and went on to lay down the blueprint for jungle / drum n bass.
Nine albums and 25 years of independence later, he continues to push the boundaries of electronic dance music touring worldwide bringing his "true school" flavour to a world overloaded with pop pap.
Although his remixes are relatively enviable including the likes of David Bowie, Cabaret Voltaire, Black Uhuru, Finley Quaye, Lamb, Tricky and The Stone Roses, it is Gerald’s own productions and refusal to plough anyone’s furrow but his own which has marked him out. A Guy Called Gerald is responsible for the birth of British dance music as you know it today and continues to explore what is possible both in the studio and in the club with his "Live in Session" performances.

A Guy Called Gerald (Live In Session)
An iconic name in dance music, A Guy Called Gerald stands out for consistent innovation, excellence and refusal to compromise. A Guy Called Gerald kick started Europe’s acid house frenzy with his ’88 classic ‘Voodoo Ray’ and 'Pacific State' (as part of 808 State) and went on to lay down the blueprint for jungle / drum n bass. Nine albums and 25 years of independence later, he continues to push the boundaries of electronic dance music touring worldwide bringing his "true school" flavour to a world overloaded with pop pap.
His Live In Session shows use a vast patchwork of past, present and future experimenting effortlessly between early acid house through abstract tech breaks into dreamscapes of futuristic oscillations.
"I have decided the only way to give music to the people is raw and straight from the true school. I don't have to hide behind any trend or gimmicks. ie. analogue equipment and vinyl fetishism. I'm sorry to say but I still feel like I'm blazing the way forward only because everyone seems to be stuck in "retrogression" mode. Maybe they need a stop / start to get them out of the loop? I refuse to compromise when it comes to my sound. I realised that I'm the only real deal within dance music when I found it was impossible for me to sell out. This is the True School."

|1 July: Kelvedon Bash, Kelvedon Hall, Brentwood, Essex, England|
A Guy Called Gerald at Kelvedon Bash, Kelvedon Hall, Brentwood, Essex
Date / 1 July 2017
Kelvedon Bash - A brand new intimate arts and music festival
30 June - 2 July
Kelvedon Hall is 19 miles from London. It was built it 1715 by Sir John Wright. It was bought by the Channon family in the thirties by “Chips” Channon a politician and socialite. Henry and Katie Channon now live at the house and have decided to run an event on the grounds. The idea of the “bash ” is the intimate feel, a house party that you are a part of. The site looks across at the impressive Queen Anne house, which we will project images onto, in a direct contrast the old and the new. Modern meets the old.
Although music is an integral part KelvedonBash is not simply a music festival, it is about all of the Arts. As significant art collectors themselves it is important that it promotes what Henry and Katiebelieve in. Paul Saunders owns and runs both Westbank Art Gallery and Urban in Ibiza which will travel to Kelvedon with leading street artists who will decorate and perform throughout the weekend stamping its unique edgy brand on this beautiful country house. Leading street artists will decorate the arena. As part of the interactive ethos of our festival, we will also be having: graffiti walls an art hunt and Kids Paws, something for everyone.
A large attraction of the weekend will be a search for ‘The New Young Face of Essex.’ With a celebrity model coming to judge the final. We will be collaborating with local and London fashion schools; we want our models to wear innovative clothes designed by the up-and-coming generation of designers as well as more established names in the business. Our preferred styles and ideas will be showcasing breakthrough designs with themes including recycling and reinventing.
A large film tent will be in situ run by Lara Agnew, documentary maker and teacher at NFTS (National film school). This multi-dimensional project will include crowd participations creating a constant live feed. Film entertainment for all ages. With an onsite editing suite, young filmmakers can get hands on experience and learn some new skills.
Although small, it is vital to our ethos that Kelvedon Bash is special, interesting and original. The best of what street food has to offer will be available. Seoul comes to Essex with Kogi, traditional English with a Hog roast, the Viet Van and of course The All Day Breakfast Bar.

A Guy Called Gerald
Summer is approaching and we’re kicking it off with a party that takes rave back to it's roots – a night filled with acid & hedonistic sounds providing non-stop dancing & feel good vibes until sunrise. To say that we have a legend of the scene headlining would be a massive understatement; we’re overwhelmed to announce that none other than 808 state’s A Guy Called Gerald will be topping the bill…
Few people can claim to have had the impact on a musical scene as Manchester’s A Guy Called Gerald. Starting out in the late eighties and inspired by the emerging Hacienda scene around him, one of his earliest releases literally changed the musical landscape: his ‘Voodoo Ray’ track with its gurgling bassline, reversed samples and otherworldly atmospheres came to define the new acid house sound and has remained a timeless classic to this day.

An iconic name in dance music, A Guy Called Gerald stands out for consistent innovation, excellence and refusal to compromise. A Guy Called Gerald kick started Europe’s Acid House frenzy with his ’88 classic ‘Voodoo Ray’ and ‘Pacific State’ (as part of 808 State) and went on to lay down the blueprint for Jungle and Drum ‘N’ Bass. Nine albums and twenty five years of independence later, he continues to push the boundaries of electronic dance music touring worldwide bringing his ‘true school’ flavour to a world overloaded with imitation House and pop pap.
Although his remixes are relatively enviable including the likes of David Bowie, Cabaret Voltaire, Black Uhuru, Finley Quaye, Lamb, Tricky and The Stone Roses, it is Gerald’s own productions and refusal to plough anyone’s furrow but his own which has marked him out. A Guy Called Gerald is partly responsible for the birth of British dance music as you know it today and continues to explore what is possible both in the studio and in the club with his ‘Live in Session’ performances.
Since 2012 he has been working on a side project with Graham Massey (808 State) called REBUILD performing live jams on the Roland machines. ‘How Long Is Now’ was released on Bosconi Records in 2012. A live album Silent Sound Spread Spectrum followed from the Society of Sound Series – a collaboration between Bowers & Wilkins and Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in 2013.
In 2016/17 he continues to be in demand worldwide with his Live In Session shows using a vast patchwork of past, present and future, experimenting effortlessly between early Acid House through abstract tech breaks into dreamscapes of futuristic oscillations. At Glastonbury Festival this year he will be performing with Funktion One’s Ambisonic Experimental system – a six stack Ambisonic full-sphere surround sound technique that is ‘capable of recreating accurate three-dimensional sound stages from original recordings’.
In the studio he is busy recording a steady stream of releases on his own digital label and a new album due out in mid 2017.

Seja qual for o tópico, é necessário que a História aconteça (os anos passem) para se verem claramente os momentos definidores. Assim foi com "Voodoo Ray" e acid house. A Guy Called Gerald acabava de deixar os 808 State, com quem tinha gravado o álbum "Newbuild" (1988). Para Aphex Twin, que reeditou esse disco mais de uma década depois, era o passo seguinte em relação ao acid de Chicago: "era mais frio e mais humano, ao mesmo tempo". Sozinho, Gerald continuou a explorar esse equilíbrio difícil de conseguir, esticando a influência de Manchester na cena electrónica inglesa de dança, que vinha pelo menos desde "Blue Monday" dos New Order, em 1983. A sua origem jamaicana, a colecção de discos do pai, o amor pelo electro e a postura b boy, a importação das novidades de Detroit e Chicago por lojas de discos em Manchester, tudo junto resultou na visão singular que criou "Voodoo Ray", o álbum "Hot Lemonade", o arranque dos 808 State (que se encontraram na cena hip hop) e a evolução para alguns dos primeiros discos de drum & bass, culminando em "Black Secret Technology" (1995), considerado por alguma imprensa como o melhor álbum de jungle de sempre. Gerald tinha o dedo mesmo no nervo do movimento, da mesma forma que, em 1988, "Voodoo Ray" aparece creditada como a primeira faixa acid house a ser produzida em Inglaterra. E ele vai estar cá. Que cena.

A Guy Called Gerald (3 HOUR LIVE SET)
Saturday 25th of March we are back in the infamous basement "club vaag” and it will be a special night.
A night guided by a true Manchester hero called, Gerald Simpson aka “a guy called Gerald”, who has been active as dj & producer since the 80’s. After forming the 808 State, he left the group in 1988 after a few problems. Like this he was able to concentrate more on his solo work in his little attic studio, with "voodoo ray” as a result.
As being the first UK acid house producer and pioneer, he achieved the rare feat of having not one but two instrumental dance tracks in the UK charts at the same time. He is a self-written bible of dance music and we are happy to have him over for a 3 hour live set!!
We also invited the guys of vice city for some funky monkey business.

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.

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.
An iconic name in dance music, A Guy Called Gerald stands out for consistent innovation, excellence and refusal to compromise.

☻ A GUY CALLED GERALD
A Guy Called Gerald (U.K.) is de artiestennaam van acid-housepionier Gerald Simpson. In 1987 richtte hij met Graham Massey en Martin Price de groep 808 State op. Hiermee werkte hij mee aan het album Newbuild, dat het eerste Britse acid-housealbum is. Ook is hij betrokken bij de monsterhit Pacific State. Voor hij uit 808 State vertrok was hij al begonnen met een solocarrière. In 1988 verschijnt de ep Voodoo Ray. Het titelnummer hiervan broeide een tijdje in de underground en werd in 1989 een Britse top 20-hit. Gerald speelt zich hiermee in de kijker van John Peel, die in 1989 een korte Peel-session met hem opneemt. Een jaar later kwam zijn tweede album uit. Op Automanikk werkte hij samen met de Detroitse technoproducer Derrick May. Hierna richtte hij Juice Box Records op. https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Guy_Called_Gerald
