A Guy Called Gerald (Live - 4 hour set) on Sunday 25th August 2019
A Guy Called Gerald (4 hour live set)
With our 'Rave in a Bagel Shop' series ending on a high of sell outs we thought it was time to light a new fire. With the festival season in full swing, we felt it was only right to bring the party back to the real home of house music, Manchesters original underground spot. We'll be transforming Souths Basement into a scene from the 90's acid house era that once thrived amongst our city.
A Guy Called Gerald is an innovator, an originator. Together we'll be celebrating his 30 years independence and work in the game.
In his 20s, he was already making tunes with artists like Derrick May and co-founded 808 State, producing music that would go on to influence generations of artists all over the world. Gerald has been described as a ‘self written bible of dance music’, collaborating with seminal artists like Frankie Knuckles and releasing notable remixes of The Stone Roses, David Bowie and others. From the huge hit ‘Voodoo Ray’ to ‘How Long is Now’, Gerald has been forever forward-thinking and his art forever evolving.
