31st May: Benno Blome - Nausicaä (featuring Gerald on vocals) - 12" Single out now
"Nausicaä" the female hero fights for survival through ecological desaster. With undeviating force she struggles to revitalize Nature. The japanese manga art movie inspired Blome to his new release on Sender after the 10th anniversary compilation. Track one on the A-site "Nausicaä opens with an instrumental amplitude which creates a soulful width. Swinging bass weave a well constructed atmosphere of a sensitive play. Circulating, flexible sequences combined with sensible used vocals of A Guy Called Gerald creating an impulsive, drifty sound aesthetic. A synchronization of body and motion, of moment and expansion. On the "Calamaris Street" we travel more accelerated through the Universe Sender. With tentacular sense Calamaris Street spins strings of sound and voice to a hypnotic bustle. SEND 087 is concatenating Nausicaä and Calamaris Street in an ecstatic synthesis of Sound and Vision to an new euphoric synthesis.

10th May: New album - "Tronic Jazz The Berlin Sessions" released on 10th May 2010
"Tronic Jazz The Berlin Session" was released on 10th May 2010 and is A Guy Called Gerald's 8th full length studio album. Linear in structure, the album is a collection of audio snaps with a melodic symphony of textures where rhythm and bass collide to create a tapestry of musical colour. Tronic Jazz builds on Gerald's early influences and is inspired by the Blues and Soul-infused Techno introduced by the first generation of Detroit DJs and producers, with an edge attributable to his base in Berlin."
