August 25th: New Gerald Remix - Quad In Blueblackness - Atlantic 22 (A Guy Called 808 Mix)
DJ Quad In Blueblackness feat. DJ interlude - Bangtraction E.P.

A new remix was released on 1st July 2013 (which I hadn't noticed until now!). It's by DJ Quad In Blueblackness and it's called "Atlantic 22".

Here's the blurb from the press release:

"The 2nd song, produced by “Dj Quad IN BLUEBLACKNESS”, called the “ATLANTIC 22 (A Guy Called 808 mix)”, flirts with an updated Swahili-version of the classic 1989 original release of the song “Pacific State”, paying homage to the original group “808 State”, with “A Guy Called Gerald” as the remixer! Fasten your seatbelts, this track is taking flight to the east with a very haunted sax and world-Trans-Atlantic strings!!"

July 19th: New Rebuild (Gerald/Graham) date announced in Gent, Belgium on September 7th
Retro Acid, Gent, Belgium - featuring Rebuild

A new date featuring Rebuild (A Guy Called Gerald and Graham Massey of 808 State) at Retro Acid in Gent, Belgium, on Saturday 7th September 2013:

They have reunited to perform all-analogue live acid jams with a distinctly retro approach. When the men responsible for seminal tracks as ‘Pacific State’ and ‘Voodoo Ray’ get back together, we got excited. They will be using all the old Roland gear as the 101, 303, 808 and 909. Graham: “To some extent it’s slightly nostalgic but it’s not really about tunes we’ve written before. About 70% of it is pure improvisation. It’s all about setting the system up using drum machines and monosynths with little sequencers in them, then jumping off the cliff holding hands.” This will, without a doubt, be a remarkable performance!

Felipe Valenzuela & Pier Bucci - Ocurrencias

Released:

TBD 2013.

Press Release:

Andrea Appolloni’s Room 9 label is back with a fantastic new EP from the chilean producers Felipe Valenzuela and Pier Bucci, supported by the great touch of the former acid house uk producer A Guy Called Gerald.

Felipe Valenzuela is at his second Ep at Room 9 and he has built a superb reputation for producing quality house, always mixed with his own South American vibe. His releases and remixes for labels including Cadenza, Melisma and Metroline Ltd, have granted him fantastic support from the best international artists. For this Ep he worked in studio with his friend Pier Bucci.

Pier’s sound is a personal blend of lush, colorful melodies, wrapped inside elegant techno, all tied together with a Latin twist.

A Guy Called Gerald’s touch increased the quality of this Ep, thanks to the refined taste of the uk producer. AGCG marks more of 20 years of production in dance music and his style is a gateway between Chicago House and Detroit Techno.

Ocurrencias, music by Pier and Felipe, is a percussive groove track characterised by lots of organic elements and powerful percussion that progresses into a wave of acid naughtiness.

ACGC worked with the chilean producers in order to realize the track “Mas”, a perfect combination of the styles of all artists, with deep acid haunting synths creates an impressive crescendo to drive the emotions in this sophisticated melodic elegant track.

April 26th: Gerald track "Thu The Diehold" on "Bosconi Stallions NEGED" - due 22/05/13
Bosconi Stallions NEGED

For the second installment of the Stallions saga, Bosconi Records entrusts the fate of the muscular thoroughbred Neged. The stallion is flanked by five stallions at an older age and with four tracks have a responsibility to drive the seductive ride, set synergy between Uk, bass and balearic sounds.

The first maximum weight is A Guy Called Gerald, with a melodic and other times The The Diehold, following close behind Altered Natives that lay snares for between environments dreamy and epic of The Legend Of Neglect. The B-side turns on a wide range of positive feelings derived from spatial Testacorta melodies, written by Alex Picone and Mass Prod aka Brothers in Low, and Virata Rupa by Edoardo della Calle, who is a great travel companion for a ride reached only half of the final goal.
