Since the late eighties A Guy Called Gerald has been a force in the world of electronic music. When the history of postmodern dance music is written he is ubiquitous: his visions, his stylistic versatility, and musical open mindedness had a huge influence on the development of global dance culture. Very early on he experimented with techno and acid house and helped pioneer the style that was later called drum n'bass. And now the man from Manchester presents his newest album, To All Things What They Need. Again, A Guy Called Gerald has produced a piece of sonic innovation! For To All Things What They Need, A Guy Called Gerald freed himself from all musical barriers and genre fixations. The groove fundament on which his melodies rest freely varies from track to track, ignoring the common rhythmic formats. Masterly, A Guy Called Gerald fuses oriental harmony fragments with electronic sounds, combining the spoken word poetry of Ursula Rucker with a jazz beat or diving into beat-free musical depths where an intense, soulful sensation reverberates. To All Things What They Need is an album that is shaped by a gentle and deep atmosphere that exudes an irresistible sensuality.
