Gerd Janson never wanted to become one of the world’s most beloved DJs. He was, like many of us, just a huge fan. A music journalist to begin with, he took off once becoming a resident at Robert Johnson in Frankfurt, Germany. Around then, he started a label– Running Back –where he could sign his favorite music.

Boom. The rest is history.

Red Bull Music Academy Radio Bio:
One of our most treasured Academy team members, Gerd Janson is the quintessential DJ’s DJ, unearthing the gems that get other music lovers hot and excited. The man has his plate full. Whether at the helm of the long-running Liquid club night at Frankfurt’s Robert Johnson with DJ comrade Thomas Hammann, dishing out simmering analog House as co-owner of label Running Back, or penning many a story for Germany’s Spex and Groove magazines, not to mention his scholarship of American studies, he seems to run on more powerful batteries than the rest of us.

Janson is joined by resident DJ Mike Swells and a special opening set from Deano Sounds , a/k/a the propritor of Cultures of Soul, Somerville’s great record label. Gerd Janson recently remixed “Flash a Flashlight” for that label.

So, a night of simply amazing music. Bring cash for wax!
