DKX004: Patterns/Last Time by Gerry Read
on 12″, March 28th, 2011

Gerry Read’s much-loved “Patterns” receives a vinyl run backed by the phenomenal new track “Last Time”. Since his first release in November last year, Gerry’s reputation has spread with MJ Cole, Gilles Peterson and Ben UFO all playing his productions.
“Patterns” lays out a web of delicate percussion, vocal ticks and dub atmospherics, before a charging woodblock drum pattern and locked synth chords launch the track. It’s a strong blend of moody dub atmospherics and euphoric dancefloor energy. The track was supported by forward-looking selectors like Untold, Starkey & Mumdance – and played on the world’s smarter radio stations, Rinse FM, Sub FM, Subjam & Fevah. New track “Last Time” is a slab of reverse-engineered 2011 house music, a reconstruction of an obscure George Fitzgerald white label. 2-step and classic US house sounds are pulled apart and recombined to create a masterful piece of bittersweet London house music. Expect to hear this track everywhere, from grimey backrooms in Bristol to Ibiza beach bars.
Bio & Influences
Since receiving widespread acclaim for his first release from the likes of FACT, Sonic Router and other forward-thinking blogs, Gerry is now working on a number of different label projects, and collaborations with up and coming artists. Gerry recently returned to the UK after spending several years in Australia. The separation from the UK bass scene helped him craft his unique sound, while retaining a deep understanding of his musical influences. Sonically, comparisons range anywhere from Actress to James Blake, with a love for dusty, crushed, vintage sound.
