Pitchfork on Gerry Read’s Debut Album

Image Check out what Pitchfork had to say about our February Guest:

Gerry Read is just 20 years old. But it would be wrong to call him “precocious” or an “upstart”; for the most part, the British producer stays quiet and releases tracks. His relative anonymity– press photos obscure his face; if he’s on Twitter it’s a really good disguise— and steady release schedule have a lot more in common with the old Chicago and Detroit heads than the current generation of UK producers.”

“Credit the aggressive samples or the distinct friction created when Read pushes those drums against them. Jummycloses with “Sidecar”, a ghostly, pale piece that that screams “album closer!” Its formless, dim neon proposes that Read has bigger ideas for an R&B hook than a great house track. But right now, Read is full of great, idiosyncratic house tracks and Jummy is packed with them.”

You can read the rest of their review here. If you’ve already been vibing to Jummy like we have don’t forget to RSVP to his US debut on the 22nd. You can also cop advanced tickets for a reduced price here.
