A Guy Called Gerald - Tronic Jazz The Berlin Sessions Vol 3 / 12"
Tronic Jazz The Berlin Sessions Vol 3
Second in a series of four limited edition 12-inch singles constituting the vinyl release of A Guy Called Gerald's killer new album 'Tronic Jazz : The Berlin Sessions' - a powerful statement of intent that communicates more persuasively than ever Gerald's vision for techno in its third decade of existence. 'Tronic Jazz' follows a certain minimalist impulse, but it's far too lush ever to be mistaken for the dread "mnml" of recent years. This stuff is wide-eyed and full of life. When it funks, it funks hard, and when it smoothes out, it can be as intimate as a hand-written note left on a lover's pillow. Yet as "classic" in tone as 'Tronic Jazz' may be, it's no retro trip ... instead, Gerald uses the foundations of house and techno as a language of his own, and speaks volumes with them. This plate carries four tracks; A1. Iland A2. Just Soul B1. Round Eco B2. The Dip
