Due to other party commitments Get Diverted didn't get to celebrate last summer so it is double celebrations this time round! Acid House pioneer A Guy Called Gerald is headlining this special event with support from Farley & Heller. We can’t believe it’s been 7 years since that first wet Sunday afternoon on the then open terrace and we thank-you for your support in cementing Get Diverted as one of London’s leading outdoor parties and a true South London house music institution!
Our first headliner, A Guy Called Gerald pretty much kick-started UK acid house with his ’88 Hacienda classic ‘Voodoo Ray’ and ‘Pacific State‘ (he was one of the founding members of 808 State) – gatecrashing the charts in the process – and went on to lay down the blueprint for jungle music - and has since continued his role as one of the UK’s most dedicated producers. On top of releases on seminal labels like Perlon, Sender, !K7 and Beatstreet over the past 10 years, GCG released his 9th album ‘Tronic Jazz: The Berlin Sessions’ last year on specialist Berlin label Laboratory Instinct. We welcome one of dance music’s most unassuming heroes to take us way back to a time when US imports were streaming into the underground record stores in Manchester.
Supporting Gerald are Farley & Heller, who have had a huge recent resurgence including the first ever official vinyl singles number 1, with their collaboration with Underwold and Frankie Knuckles tribute, Baby Wants to Ride. Although prominent house DJs and producers individually, London-based remixers Terry Farley and Pete Heller enjoyed their greatest notoriety working as a duo. They first surfaced in the early '90s as part of Andrew Weatherall's Boys Own collective, making their debut with a hugely popular remix of the Farm's "Groovy Train"; hits for Espiritu ("Francisca"), Sunscreem ("Perfect Motion"), K Klass ("Don't Stop") and Secret Life ("As Always") followed. They have also had chart success with Ultra Flava and Pete’s solo release Big Love.
Tred Benedict completes our line up of guests, who you will all be familiar with from his popular Daytime terrace party “Spilt Milk”. Tred is a modern example of the rising talent emerging from the London underground and rocked the terrace at our opening party
The final piece of our line up is our trusty residents Elijah Collins, Rob Alldritt and Russell Wayne with Meet. taking over the Boudoir.
