Gerd is considered by many to be one of the most timeless house producers and DJs out there. This true house veteran is as comfortable crafting classic bangers (as NY Stomp) as he is Chicago indebted tracks (as Geeeman) and also turns out deeper fair under his given name on labels like his own exciting new label Frame of Mind, as well as his home away from home, Clone Records. He might have been around for years, then, but his vast passion, knowledge and experience still very much separates him from the crowd and makes him as relevant and vital as ever.
“I prefer a selection with a lot of variation, maybe even use genres that are extreme compared to each other when put together into one mix.”Gerd
Testament to his house credentials is the fact he often works with majorly influential heavyweights including Larry Heard, Romanthony and MK. Such versatility in the studio is mirrored by Gerd’s skills in the booth when DJing. Not a weekend goes by without him playing some top club or taste making festival somewhere in the world, playing wide ranging sets (as proven by his always eye opening shows on Red Light Radio) from his vast record collection, they range from house to techno and from disco to boogie, all blend into one big seamless mix-up.
“The most fun part of making music is making the basic sketch”Gerd
2017 marks his 25th year at the very top of his game, and also brings with it a new label, Frame of Mind, which will again showcase his vast taste for dance music and will put out a selection of forgotten classics from non specific genres, but that all sound effortlessly timeless. With more solo works also in the pipeline, long time and hugely consistent talent Gerd is rightfully acknowledged for his club-owning dexterity on the decks as he is loved for his skills in the studio.
