A Guy Called Gerald Discusses New Technologies In Music

The second instalment in this Native Instruments video series features the legendary Mancunian producer

Native Instruments launched their Traktor DJ app in February 2013 and has amassed over 5 million purchases to date. After winning “iTunes Global App of the Year” in more than nine markets, they have now decided to issue a series of web films demonstrating how the portable technology has found it’s way into DJ booths & studio set-ups around the world.

The first instalment to the series featured Sarah Farina, and the second instalment now features Mancunian producer A Guy Called Gerald. Establishing himself as an integral part of the early UK dance scene with breakthrough acid house anthem ‘Voodoo Ray’ in 1988, A Guy Called Gerald has influenced generations of producers following him. Gerald is still embracing technology today and uses the Traktor app on the regular.

Running alongside the video series, Native Instruments are now running a DJ competition titled ‘Everybody Dj’. Applicants have the chance to win an all expenses weekend getaway to Berlin which includes a tour of the Native Instruments HQ, VIP entry to a selection of nightclubs a NI DJ controller & more. A panel of judges from diverse music backgrounds will decide the winners, it  includes DJ Sarah Farina, producer Arthur Baker, lifestyle and fashion tastemakers Felder and Felder, and A Guy Called Gerald himself. The closing date is October  30th. Further details here.
