A Guy Called Gerald
Volume 2 (Disneyband/Anything) EP

Gerald, on the other hand, is ahead of the game again. 'Volume 2" is wild; pumping and tuneful with lots of intricate little Kraftwerky touches.

A GUY CALLED GERALD
VOLUME 2 EP
(WHITE LABEL)

Ah, the sophisticated ambience that is A Guy Called Gerald. Not one to throw the towel in and cobble together a raving cash in, Gerald continues his singleminded mission to bring an organic feel to electronic music. 'Baby Face' is a shimmering and subtle grower that's timeless. 'Anything Can Happen' takes a swipe at current rave frenzy, using a familiar break and adding a moody, lingering atmosphere. 'BLK 1' revisits the quirky pop appeal of much of the 'Hot Lemonade' material, with added industrial FX. 'Wonderful World Volume 1' with its Les Dawson hammed up piano and jumbled edits is insane. It would seem that Gerald approaches his brand of house in much the same way as a freeform jazz musician. Straight from the 21 st Century, this cerebral EP has to be sought out. Get there first as there aren't many about.
