Gerd Janson is back. The running back honcho and selector par excellence returns to Jaeger two years on from his last visit. The enduring brilliance of his skills as a DJ remains unparalleled, and he’s still one of the most sought-after figures in the DJ booth today. He plays the world’s most esteemed clubs and party concepts, a musical chameleon that can accommodate any dance floor, from Panorama bar to Fuse. When he is not touring you can find him at home in Frankfurt at the legendary Robert Johnson where he continues to host his residency. Frædag’s g-HA & Olanskii extend a hand yet again to their friend and have asked Olefonken to join them to set the tone for the night.

Gerd Janson is one of the most highly respected DJs in the world of house and techno. Quite often, “highly respected” goes hand-in-hand with “underrated” but over the past few years, audiences around the world have also found out what insider types already knew: Janson is a DJ that reconfigures the classics you already knew in an unexpected way – and introduce you to new classics, a few months (or years) before you’ll hear them played everywhere else.
A genre-free philosophy has been a theme throughout Janson’s career. House and techno have been an underlying theme, but listening to his DJ sets, you’ll often hear different types of things filtering through: UK funky, synth pop, industrial. It’s a cliché, to be sure, but he’s the type of DJ that digs so that you don’t have to.
Janson is one of the most modest DJs you’ll find, and he’ll very often point toward his frequent DJ partner Thomas Hammann as a reason for this versatility. Together with Hammann, Janson has held down a residency at Frankfurt’s Robert-Johnson club since 2000.
g-HA & Olanskii
Two pivotal bodies in the sphere of Norwegian electronic music, g-HA & Olanskii are an event, a club, a DJ duo, and a musical authority for Norway. Individually adept as DJ, selectors and tastemaker, Ola “Olanskii” Smith-Simonsen and Geir “g-HA” Holger’s musical voices unified for Sunkissed, an events series that has become the backbone of Oslo’s electronic music scene and beyond.
Olefonken is a musical savant. A musician, an artist, a producer, a DJ, a label owner and a promoter, he embraces and works in every faction of music. An eclectic soul, Olefonken’s rich biography is reflected in his work in the booth. He first started making music, playing in various bands in school, and eventually formed hubbabubbaklubb. hubbabubbaklubb got a lot of early attention with their single Mopedbart, which they followed up in 2018 with the acclaimed LP, drømmen drømmerne drømmer. While working in that group Olefonken has concurrently established a career as a solo artist with two EPs Quaaludes and Till Hanne finding the ears of Norwegian listeners and audiences abroad.
