Gerd Janson is running the newly set up German true school house label Running Back together with Thorsten Scheu (aka Glance). Mute’s “Direct Cuts” EP has just been released in Spring this year. This four tracker brings back memories of classic Bobby Konders bass lines or early Prescription releases. Needs’ Yannick heralded the “Direct Cuts”. The limited first edition has been sold out in one day. Strong support from DJs such as Jazzanova or Steve Kotey convinced the Running Back guys to re-release this 12″ soon.

As many kids who have grown up in the early 90s in the South West of Germany, Gerd Janson was a regular guest at Mannheim’s legendary Milk Club. Although this venue was most popular for putting jungle on the map in Germany, Gerd always used to wait eagerly for the early morning hours when the pace slowed down and US styled house was the ruling sound. In the following years, his deep love for house and disco music was fed in Frankfurt’s Wild Pitch Club by Heiko MSO and Ata. In 1998, Gerd Janson finally had his first DJ residency at Darmstadt’s Café Kesselhaus. Today, he is serving the hottest deep house, garage and disco cuts at Frankfurt’s Robert Johnson where he is hosting the Liquid club nights together with DJ heavyweight Thomas Hammann and Sven Hellwig. Recently, Gerd rocked the house basement at Groove Attack’s very own Spread Love party with his old school bad ass b-lines. No doubt, this man is one of the hottest talents on the German house DJ circuit. When not spinning records, Gerd Janson is known as a prolific music journalist writing for Groove magazine or the OUK fanzine.
