Gerard has published the playlist and guest Takamasa Owaki for his weekly show 'The Hit List' 49 this Tuesday the 20th of October from 10 PM to 12 AM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeating Saturday from 10 AM to 12 PM (ICT). Scientific Sound Asia is the English language electronic music radio station for China, India, Malaysia, Vietnam, Korea and the rest of the region.
Gerard is a DJ and producer from Florida, the USA with a great natural flare for the production of genres such as Deep House, Deep Tech, Tech House and Techno. He stands as a revolutionary figure across all that is House music whose works of genius have left audiences mesmerized where ever he’s performed.
Starting out as part of DeviceRATT with F.L.I. Records, It wasn’t long before Gerard’s interest in electronic music grew into a deep-seated adoration for the genre. It was here that he discovered his path, electrifying audiences with those entrancing beats and sounds.
He performed all across South Florida’s underground scene, including venues such as Treehouse and Nocturnal. The budding artist soon skyrocketed to the top, with rave reviews, sold-out shows and an ever-growing fan base.
In 2014 Gerard released his debut with Aerotek Records, and ever since then has continued to grow and forge a place for himself on the electronic scene. With further releases with a number of labels including Pure Pitch and LTHM, Gerard has become a prominent figure across all that is electronic music.
Gerard has not just been a success at home but across the border as well. He scored a string of residences in venues across East Asia. Laying down beats and producing magic before audiences he soon began to repeat the same achievements he’d had in his native land.
After gaining a gigantic following and becoming a firm favourite across venues, Gerad soon secured himself as a prominent figure on China’s music scene. Sadly though, he was unable to continue his path in the Far East. After enjoying success in that region, he made the move back to America when the pandemic struck, leaving a big hole in many music lovers' hearts.
Since his return to the states, Gerard continues to wield his craft and enchant audiences. With his fan base growing ever bigger, his name reaching heights and his sounds transcending across the world, Gerard has made his mark on the music scene and secured himself as one of its top contenders.
