Gerd Janson has been one of the key players of electronic music in Germany for years now. Head of the Running Back label, home to many super good artists (Hunne, Todd Terje, Suzanne Kraft, Lauer, Octo Octa to name a few) and their stellar releases, he is now touring the world regularly from his home the Robert Johnson club in Offenbach (close to Frankfurt). Not to forget, Gerd Janson is also a journalist and writes for some of the best quality german music magazines like Groove Magazine. Oh, and he is also a key member of the Red Bull Music Academy team, having conducted lectures with Theo Parrish or Henrik Schwarz for more than 10 years now. And I like the RBMA a lot (find out more here and here).
This DJ set has been recorded during the one-day australian festival Sugar Mountain, which takes place every year in Melbourne. In this set, Gerd Janson shows off his incredible skill at mastering the crowd and literally taking it where he wants to. The selection of tunes is flawless, includes hits and classics all along, mixed with a constant search of keeping the energy at the highest level. A truly euphoric set that will take you to the moon and back within an hour. Very impressive and totally enjoyable at the same time. Very well done Sir.
