One Night With has been Wire’s staple in house party for just under two years now. The concept of the party is simple, one DJ, all night long. With guests picked for their ability to provide extended journeys through several styles and sounds, One Night With has had an exceptional run so far and only gets better with their next invitee, Gerd Janson. The event takes place Friday 4th Nov at Wire Leeds.
A resident of the world famous Robert Johnson in Frankfurt and the Running Back label boss, Gerd Janson is described by Red Bull as “a DJ’s DJ”, which is usually a good sign before you look into how good he really is. As one of the most esteemed DJs on the German circuit, he has had residencies in and around Frankfurt since an early age, with his regular slots at Robert Johnson providing only the best house and disco cuts around. This doesn’t mean to say that he keeps his vision set thin, as his last appearance in Leeds saw him hammer a heavy closing set at Canal Mills, hence being picked to return to the city for an extended performance to let his true colours really shine.
It’s a pleasing sight to see that One Night With will be returning for the new academic year; last year we were treated to performances from Joy Orbison and Daniel Avery, showing that standards are always high. This is one hell of a kick off to the new year, so it will be exciting to see who else is in line to play throughout the remainder of it.
