We wanted to do something special for this year's grand finale and begin 2018 with a bang so what could be more special than getting to hear the legendary A Guy Called Gerald play an awesome acid house set to commemorate the legacy of the Hacienda in Manchester, where it all started in 1987.
Gerald has been making and playing music for around 30 years, taking music production and live sets to a whole new level.

Because we want to step things up with this event we prepared trippy decorations and visuals in order to create an atmosphere worthy of the old school warehouse parties.

Supporting the acid maestro will be local acts Lysergic Action & Intrepid Soul.

For the complete experience 90s dress code is recommended but not mandatory, however the best dressed ravers will be rewarded with ice cold delicious drinks.

To make things even more interesting and to help you get in to the holiday spirit we will have special prices for entering this event.

The Acid House Orchestra

The sound that took house music worldwide ...

This December we take a journey through the history of acid house with a live show and clubnight celebrating the genre's most iconic sounds.

The night begins with a live performance from the incredible Acid House Orchestra followed by an extended DJ set from Hacienda original, A Guy Called Gerald - the man behind the seminal anthem 'Voodoo Ray'. Get ready 9 hours filled with acid & hedonistic sounds providing non-stop dancing & feel good vibes until sunrise.

A 9-piece ensemble comprising live electronics, brass, percussion and more, The Acid House Orchestra will perform unique renditions of the most defining tracks from the sound's birth in Chicago clubs to its arrival in the UK raves. Expect a live journey through the early sounds of 808 state, A Guy Called Gerald, and LFO right through to the later sounds of The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers.

Following the live show we're honored to be welcoming one of the genre's original OGs for a historic acid house DJ session.

THAT Acid House tune, nothing defines the birth of dance music as we know and love it than A Guy Called Gerald's stone cold classic Voodoo Ray.

Artists on the night;

A Guy Called Gerald & JB - Selecta Bros
Where do you start with A Guy Called Gerald? A hidden gem, the gateway between Chicago house / Detroit Techno and the UK dance music explosion in the late 80s. He is one of a few special producers who entered dance music in the jacking zone. He is the first UK acid house producer and probably the first producer to have two instrumental dance tracks in the UK charts at the same.

Having shared the same passion for House & Techno, recognized on an international scale and across the London underground House movement, JB partnered with Gerald to create dynamic duo Selecta Bros, a platform to distribute their vibe to a dedicated audience!

Jef K - Silver Network
We're super excited to announce a Parisian legend: Jef K to the Apt: stage. With groovy and sexy house sets that made him quickly earn a reputation as one of the fastest rising DJs amongst the French house scene!

// start blurb-

In collaboration with AWAMU, Digital City is proud to announce the most intimate 'A G__ Call_d G_rald' performance you're ever likely to see, set under Peckham's Bussey Building amongst the towering speakers of the Rye Wax record shop.

An iconic name in dance music, 'A Guy Called Gerald' stands out for consistent innovation, excellence and refusal to compromise. 'A Guy Called Gerald' kick started Europe’s acid house frenzy with his '88 classic 'Voodoo Ray' and 'Pacific State' (as part of 808 State) and went on to lay down the blueprint for jungle / drum n bass. Nine albums and 25 years of independence later, he continues to push the boundaries of electronic dance music, touring worldwide bringing his "true school" flavor to a world overloaded with pop pap.

The rollcall or artists that G has worked with attest to his 'originator' credentials as the force largely responsible for the birth of British dance music as you know it today. From collaborations with Derrick May, to David Bowie, Tricky, The Orb, the Stone Roses, Cabaret Voltaire, Lamb, Black Uhuru and Goldie, it is G’s own productions and refusal to plow anyone’s furrow but his own which has marked him out.

To this day, he continues to explore what is possible both in the studio and in the club with his performances, which use a vast patchwork of past, present and future, experimenting effortlessly between early acid house through abstract tech breaks into dreamscapes of futuristic oscillations .

Peckham's very own FYI Chris (Rhythm Section) jump in to deliver their hot-off-the-press productions. With an early release on Church, two very well received releases on Bradley Zero's Rhythm Section International and having now contributed to one of the first outputs on the recently formed Lionoil Industries, it's clear these boys have a taste for good music. Their signature sound boasts rhythmic unconventional structures that fall just into place, with groove changes at every corner. Riddled with samples that have no home but aggregate with the other bodies of the track to keep you second guessing on the dance floor.

Support is pure: Bustmasta BarryDark, Remote & Tentonatom drop the DC residential techno, beats, bleeps, bass, electro, jacking house and disco, while Parallax and guest VJ, Visual Mist bring the cutting edge visuals.

As a term, Afrofuturism appeared in the 1990s to describe an Afro-American artistic trend which had found expression in sci-fi, fantasy literature, music, the visual arts, comics and movies. Today, it is an inexhaustible field of academic, political, artistic and scientific investigation and production which incorporates elements from the cultures of Africa, America, Britain and the Caribbean.

The history and roots of the Afro-American community were systematically eradicated from the white, slave-trading consciousness. What started as the kidnapping of people from Africa between the 15th and 19th centuries developed into the post-colonial mindset of the contemporary world. The community's need to construct myths of origin, to recover their stolen past and reshape their futures found expression in sci-fi, music and technology.

Afrofuturism bridges past and future to liberate the present through musical, visual, narrative and political terms that transcend all and every historical limitation of race and gender. It constructs myths, conjecture and fantasy by linking the black experience to the techno-culture of the 20th and 21st centuries. It draws its ideas from the African cultural and philosophical tradition, the art produced by the African diaspora, and criticism of the post-colonial condition, and seeks to rewrite the Western narrative on colonialism, technology, race and time.

"Enter Afrofuturism" is a 6-day festival that maps Afrofuturism as a cultural and political movement through concerts, talks, workshops and film screenings.

The concerts will be held on the OCC's Main Stage and at Six d.o.g.s. and will feature the following artists: Sun Ra Arkestra, Actress, Dopplereffekt, Moor Mother, A Guy Called Gerald, Voltnoi, ATH Kids, Nkisi, Black Quantum Futurism, Black Athena.

The guest speakers at the lectures and open discussions will include: otolith group, Reynaldo Anderson, Louis Chude-Sokei, Rasheedah Phillips, Nkisi, Abdul Qadim Haqq, Tabita Rezaire, Erik Steinskog, Nathalie Mba Bikoro et al.

Moreover, in association with the Goethe Institut Athens and Johannesburg, short films and documentaries will be screened which explore Afrofuturism through the history of black music. Jazz, Detroit techno and the contemporary music produced in Africa's metropolises are some of the featured subjects in a collaboration that will also include the screening of virtual reality films.


Curated by: DETACH (Voltnoi & Quetempo)
Organized by: Pasqua Vorgia, Chara Mourla

The series of screenings is staged in association with the Goethe-Institut Athens and the Goethe-Institut Johannesburg.

18: 45-19: 15 A Guy Called Gerald: Ιn conversation with Black Athena

Since the late 80s, producer and dj A Guy Called Gerald has been at the center of the UK’s club scene and club culture. Drawing early influences from his Jamaican roots, he danced in Manchester’s vibrant club scene in the early 80s, immersed himself into Electro, B-Boy culture and became an instrumental figure in both Acid House and Jungle.

What is the common thread that runs all through these different styles and forms, what was the role of the new digital technologies first made widely available at the time, what inspiration did he draw from science fiction at the time? Did the new cultures and technologies offer a new type of escapism for young people coming through at the time?

Ticket information


International music and talent booking agency MN2S are proud to announce details of their always-packed ADE showcase for 2017, with three absolute legends and pioneers of house music at the helm. MN2S have handpicked three of the true architects of the genre as we know it to give the ADE crowd a serious house music history lesson.

Roger Sanchez has been a majorly resurgent force in the scene in recent years, launching a second label, Undr The Radar, to provide more underground sounds alongside the well-established Stealth Records. Back in the studio with various collaborators, his productions have once again laid waste to dancefloors the world over, continuing his impressive heritage that included chart smash ‘Another Chance’ and countless classic tracks throughout the ‘90s. His incessant touring schedule continues to take him far and wide across the world.

Few producers have a body of work so prolific and influential as Todd Terry, whose seminal work begin in the acid house heyday of the late ‘80s before he defined the sound of a genre through countless remixes and aliases in the‘ 90s. The GRAMMY-winning producer continues to deliver dance floor bombs at an incredible rate, with his InHouse Records label supporting the new generation alongside his own formidable output. Taking in all walks of house music in his sets, he has an incredible catalog to draw from and has spawned hundreds of imitators over the years.

A Guy Called Gerald flies the flag for the UK, reminding us that it wasn't just the American legends who helped to build the sound we know as house. From the stone-cold classic 'Voodoo Ray' through to his excursions into drum & bass and more recently his sublime analog house and techno workouts that join the dots between his origins and the output that followed, he has always been one of the scene's most innovative forces. His resolutely underground sounds create the perfect compliment to Sanchez and Terry, making this a truly special line-up of DJs who will cover much ground across the night.

Taking place as always at the intimate Sugarfactory, MN2S’s ADE party will be driven by the venue’s thumping sound system and electric atmosphere and is always one of the highlights of the Dutch festival’s schedule.

A Guy Called Gerald on 808 mastery, 21st-century acid and helping make electronic music in the UK what it is today.

This guy called Gerald Simpson has done much to shape British electronic music into what it is today. Starting off with his early crew in Manchester, the Scratchbeat Masters, A Guy Called Gerald was a founding member of 808 State - he released his seminal acid house classic “Voodoo Ray” in 1988. Instead of resting on his laurels he started Juice Box Records , a label that helped lay the foundations for what became jungle and drum & bass. His classic record 28 Gun Bad Boy was the very first artist album in the genre. His next album, Black Secret Technology, followed in 1995, and in 2008 it was re-released in an overhauled and remastered version; the record is cited by many as an influence, including Burial. After relocating to New York in the late ’90s, then Berlin in the early 00s, Simpson focused on his techno and house roots, releasing tracks on! K7, Laboratory Instinct, Perlon and Bosconi, proving that his musical mastery works everywhere.

Founded by Mehdi Ansari and directed by Siamak Amidi, middle east based is throwing the finest underground electronic music with real artists from all around the world. It's all about experience. Quality sound, moments. The showcase for Italy.

>> A Guy Called Gerald // Manchester // Bristol (UK)

When the history of postmodern dance music is written he is ubiquitous: his visions, his stylistic versatility and open mindedness has a huge influence on the development of global dance culture. The ideator of european acid house himself helped pioneer a style that was later called jungle and drum'n'bass. Gerald is a true legend in underground (independend) electronic music, still today he is a highly respected musician all over the globe. Through fresh and future oriented sound, Gerald's live is one of the most respected analogue sets on earth.
