Voodoo Ray" is a 1988 acid house single by Gerald Simpson, recording under the name A Guy Called Gerald. The single was released in the UK in 1988, in the 7" and 12" vinyl formats, on the Rham! label. It reached number 12 in the UK Singles Chart, and was the best-selling independently released single in 1989. It was released in the United States in 1989 by Warlock Records.
It was A Guy Called Gerald's first release in 1988 and became a seminal classic that put British house music firmly on the map. As part of 808 State’s first incarnation he co-produced another Hacienda classic, Pacific State. He soon decided to concentrate on his solo project and toured worldwide (and with a quarter of a ton of equipment!) performing live. In the early 90s he launched his own label Juice Box and released a series of 12"s that were the blueprint to what would become jungle. 1998 Radar Systems, Fallen Prince Of Heaven (JB) 1996 The Curse Of Voodoo Ray (Promo Only) (JB) 1996 So Many Dreams Remixes (JB) 1995 Finley’s Rainbow Remixes (JB) 1995 Finley’s Rainbow (JB) 1993 Darker Than I Should Be, Gloc Remix (JB) 1993 Nazinji-Zaka (JB) 1993 Strange Love Remixes – Ricky Rouge (JB) 1993 When You Took My Love – Ricky Rouge (JB).

The hit: Voodoo Ray peaked at No 12 in March 1989, a year after its first release. Although it was his only big hit, Gerald remains a key figure on the electronic music underground circuit.

I had a good life so I was never really bothered about releasing another record. Then in 2008 Big City Beats got somebody called Klaas to remix Infinity and it sold about 6m copies and was No 1 all over Europe. It was more successful the second time round.
