Gerd Janson is running the German label Running Back together with Thorsten Scheu (aka Glance). 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.

Gerd Janson has been serving the hottest deep house, garage and disco cuts at Frankfurt’s Robert Johnson where he has been hosting the Liquid club nights together with DJ heavyweights Thomas Hammann and Sven Hellwig for the past few years. Without a doubt, Gerd Janson is one of the hottest talents on the German DJ circuit. The word has spread, and so he’s travelling a lot as a DJ now. And when not spinning records he’s known as a prolific music journalist writing for Groove magazine or Spex, or he’s busy working at the Pentagon Recordstore in his hometown Darmstadt.

Currently Gerd Janson is in Seattle as part of the Red Bull Music Academy staff. When he will be back in Germany in mid-December, his label Running Back will be continued after a longer break. Hot newcomer Mute will release his second EP in early 2006 – four raw and basic house tracks with an analogue feel.
