#017 A Guy Called Gerald

Manchester in the late 1980s was as vibrant a musical environment as you could wish for, and following the second Summer of Love in 1987 societal barriers were crumbling as the combination of music and ecstasy provided the catalyst for eventually became the all-conquering leviathan that we now know as the global rave scene.

A Guy Called Gerald made key contributions to that moment, but the experience of releasing transcendent music via an industry that made today's seem like a paragon of professionalism was far from straightforward. His subsequent journey through genres, performance, and legal wrangling, has left him with a deeply held sense of independence.

We discuss all of the above over two highly interesting hours, in addition to digging into the specifics of how the industry might develop and many other sidetracks.

This week on Hotflush we welcome Psyk into the fold with his forthcoming EP 'Scattered'. Stand by for release news from Locked Groove coming this Friday... hotflush.bandcamp.com
