A Guy Called Gerald is UK Dance Music royalty, and we’re thrilled to bring him to play Live In Session at DEYA. Voodoo Ray anyone?
He kick started Europe’s Acid House frenzy releasing the first UK acid house record, the ’88 classic ‘Voodoo Ray’.
As part of seminal group 808 State he was responsible for the club classic ‘Pacific State’.
And with ‘Black Secret Technology’ he charted a new course for Jungle, an album frequently cited as the best in the genre (FACT puts it at the 4th best album of the ’90s full stop).
He is one of dance music’s most unassuming heroes (DJ Mag) and we’re thrilled to bring him to DEYA to perform Live In Session. These shows see Gerald using a vast patchwork of past, present and future sounds, experimenting effortlessly between early acid house through abstract tech breaks into dreamscapes of futuristic oscillations.
A Guy Called Gerald regularly preforms at the likes of Fabric and leading festivals including Red Bull and Gala, so it’s a real treat to have him here. We’re bringing in additional speaker capacity for this one.
Don’t sleep on the tickets as this one will sell out.
