A Guy Called Gerald

DJ night

Editorial Review

A trip through the discography of Gerald Simpson - the DJ and producer known as A Guy Called Gerald - is a quick history of the past two decades of electronic dance music. The Manchester, England, native worked on seminal techno tracks as a member of 808 State, helped create the soundtrack for acid house and rave with hits such as “Voodoo Ray,” and then led the music into the darker breakbeats of jungle and drum ‘n’ bass on his own Juice Box Records. Gerald’s most recent album, “Tronic Jazz: The Berlin Sessions,” finds him toying with that classic, late-’80s house-techno fusion, and on his latest tour, he’s bringing his whole studio setup along, remixing and revamping tunes from his back catalog live onstage. Should be an interesting experiment in live dance music.
