I've got A Guy Called Gerald on the phone

For those not in the know, A Guy Called Gerald is a Mancunian, acid house hero. He's been in the game for time but played an important role in the advent of electronics in the UK and beyond with his beats laying down the blueprint for what went on to become house and jungle.

He's basically big in the game and before Christmas I got him on the phone for an interview. He's right opinionated about his music as well as the raw deal the industry has given to him and fellow artists who are only in it for the music. Man. Considering he's viewed as a pioneer (and rightly so), he's got a chip on his shoulder the size of the Hulme Arch Bridge about the state of dance music today. Interesting business which you can check out in our chat below...
