The City Rises #105 with special Christmas guest A Guy Called Gerald

The last of our Sunday shows fell on Christmas day and after much food and revelry, and buckets of hail and rain, a sodden Dan Dare and Rambl threw down some serious beats from Thundercat, Raja, Blue Daisy, Black Star and Zomby before playing a pre-recorded interview with acid-house and jungle legend, A Guy Called Gerald.

A true innovator, Gerald has been delivering the goods for over 25 years and his music has influenced a generation of djs and producers. After speaking with Rambl about dancing, producing, passion and his search for something different, Gerald played a few of his favourite tracks for us. Enjoy!

Check the man out when he plays New Guernica on NYE, for more musings check out his blog, and for loads of great tunes, click through for his soundcloud. Interview starts at 55:30 for those who want to skip forward.
