You may be familiar with this local dj from Toronto. His name is Gera, and he’s Russian ; )
You’d never know you bumped into him in a club, as he is certainly a quiet man, but for god sakes he knows his music. If given a choice, he’d play an entire evening of house music <100 bpm and he’d be in heaven. To make a point of this, we’ve heard of him requesting sets just to open clubs like Footwork Bar & Afterhours and Wrongbar, just so he can play the sultry low bpm’s that he loves so much.
And so here comes this dude’s resume for opening gigs. In the past 6 months, Gera has opened events for the likes of The Revenge, Maceo Plex, Eats Everything, Nina Kraviz, Subb-An, Maya Jane Coles, and wow…..most recently…SASHA!!! Do you know of another DJ with those types of gigs under their belt? Man, if you do, please hit us up and let us know. We’d love to work with them!
Here’s a taste of what Gera has to offer his listeners and fans:
You can only imagine how elated we are here at houseaddict that this dude has agreed to work with us on the SUMMER MIXTAPE SESSIONS (SMS). Gera will be opening the event at Wrongbar on June 22, as we kick off SMS with Kate Simko straight in from Chicago!
houseaddict would like to express our sincere thanks to this Toronto DJ who really takes the “up and comer” stigma and tears it a new one!
SMS aims to offer Toronto a summer of performances with underground artists who demonstrate how being different should be the norm. All in the heart of Parkdale…
Vodka shots are on us!!! :O
