Even though times have changed, in contrast to the early 90s, there is still a core that attaches great importance to the true culture of techno. Clearly Gero is one of them. The music is in the foreground for him. The business behind it, which has developed more and more in the wrong direction over the years, rather causes sickness, because many have forgotten the true meaning. With Gero you know, he does what he does with his heart and soul and out of love for music. Gero's motto is: Who dances techno, can understand it. If you don't understand it, you have to keep your mouth shut. Techno is a way of life!
Gero Jansen sees the light of day in the early 90s. A heart rate of 127 bpm, a magic number it will be telling. At the tender age of 7, Gero started to learn his first instrument. Shortly afterward, he played his first concerts, but it is not enough for him to play other musician’s work. He wants more, namely to compose his own music.
In his youth, it is the sound synthesis, which gives him an appearance of perfection. He begins to deal intensively with electronic music and its creation. Initial projects arise where he tried different genres and eventually he found himself in the field of techno again. The first gigs did not take long in coming.
Despite many nights in various clubs, he still finds the time to drive his own productions ahead and to create a unique sound. The motivation
for this is his love for music.
In 2020 Gero Jansen starts strongly with his track Close your Eyes on Steve Mulder's Orange Recordings. Orange Recordings is one of the leading techno labels worldwide. The track entered the Beatport Charts after only 2 days and stayed there for over 4 weeks. Best position was #7.
In 2019 Gero Jansen starts with his first own EP on "Carl Cox" "Intec Digital.

The track is called "Breaking Good" and had huge early support from well known artists like "Pleasurekraft", "Enrico Sangiuliano", "Karotte", "Victor Ruiz", "Gabriel Anada" and many more. Maybe this is one of the reason why the Compilation jumped on place #59 in the beatport techno album charts only after three days.
