A Guy Called Gerald speaks to Pulse | Features | MN2S

UK dance legend A Guy Called Gerald spoke to Pulse Radio this week, talking through three decades of his career.

The interview also sees him give his opinion on the dance music explosion of recent years and people’s attitudes towards hype. “What’s happened is the people who try to monetise the cool are almost sat there waiting for the next new big thing” he said, “which I feel, is putting everyone off. As soon as something that is underground is monetised then it loses its soul.

“Reason being you can’t take any chances so there’s no room for experimenting. And experimenting is the essential component for creating a new vibe of some sort. It has to be something untouched by a scene already – it needs to be something new, something fresh. It can’t be the thing that everybody knows or everybody’s got.

“It has to be special. If we are all jumping on something before it’s developed and watering it down it goes nowhere. Basically it seems that the “tastemakers” are in trouble trying to find the next new trend.”
