The latest instalment is the work of 20 year old Suffolk lad turned worldwide House phenomenon Gerry Read. His raw edged EP’s for the RAMP Recordings sublabel Fourth Wave last year were hard to categorize, and even harder to forget, leaving the most hardened Bass, House and Techno heads with appetites of the moist variety. This year has been even more rewarding for the young producer, with the diva-sample heavy peak timer 90′s Prostitution Racket cementing his claims as a hit machine, followed up by Techno institution Delsin releasing his heavy handed Yeah Come Dance EP to similar global effect.
It may be hard to believe that this is all the work of a cheeky laptop wielding 20 year old, but it’s what makes it all the more intriguing. His mix is of equal interest, 45 minutes of frenetic changes and dance floor goodness with the BPM’s up for good measure.
We also managed to grab Gerry for a small chat, here’s what he had to say..
I was 14 and did the whole immigration thing to Perth with my family because my dad got a job, it didn’t work out so we moved back.
My studio is my laptop on my lap on my bed, sometimes downstairs in the lounge but recently i’ve been taking it into the dining room.
Yeah I find it quite cool going into a club when you’re there just to play because I feel disconnected from it, because the majority of people are there to get fucked and you’re not. You feel like you’re spectating.
But I also find it one of the most annoying environments to be in if you’re not fucked, especially if the people on before you are playing a load of bollocks [laughs].
It’s basically just every sort of music i’ve ever been into from black metal to jungle to shoegaze to grime etc.
I’ve recorded it on turntables/cdjs and it features Presk, Subhead, Gerald Mitchell and loads more.
Theres my debut album called Jummy which is out next month, a limited CD thing. Also me and Kevin Mcphee are going to be releasing our own stuff.
No Tracklist Available.
