A Guy Called Gerald: How Long is Now Label: Bosconi Records

This is a really fun and highly entertaining release from one of the legendary names of acid-house, A Guy Called Gerald. There's an entire story to how this EP came to be. When Gerald moved to Berlin, he set up his studio inside the famous Tacheles, a massive & historic squatter's building where decades of artists and musicians have set up shop. But the Tacheles has just been demolished, and this EP was released as one of its final products.

All three tracks are funky and entertaining funky electro-house. Try them all for fun!

1. "How Long is Now" - Tribal-tech house with huge analog bassy grinds, cut-up/broken-up percussion layers, and slightly spooky ambience. Dark & moody goodness.
2. "Groove of the Ghetto" - Wonderful analog-bass-laden funky house mixed with old-school inner-city soul vocal samples. Fantastic and funky.
3. "202" - Playful analog electro synth bubbling, great pumping beats. Neat buildups around halfway through. Extremely entertaining.
