New York dance music history with a man who was there every step of the way

Interviewer

Gerd Janson

He holds residencies at two of the best clubs in the universe, Robert Johnson and Panorama Bar; reviews the latest 12" singles for German music reads Spex and Groove; and, of course, releases some of today’s most daring dance music on his own Running Back label—it’s all in a day’s work for Gerd Janson. A true DJ’s DJ, Gerd might dabble with production and remixing, but his natural habitat will always be the DJ booth. From classic house to dreamy disco, just give the guy two turntables and an audience, and the rest will follow.
