Guy Gerber
Israeli pioneer of electronic music Guy Gerber has repeatedly startled the world with his personal vision of techno which he intertwines with unique and cleverly designed melodies that never leave the listener indifferent. Owner of the label Supplement Facts, he has found the best means of communicating his passion for harmony and rhythm. All this success may have been a surprise to Guy if you’d told him when he was 15 how his life might turn out. As a member of his native Israel’s under-16s national football team, he started to play guitar. Very quickly his love of football was replaced by an obsession with music. Listening to bands like Joy Division, My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, Soft Cell, and The Beach Boys, Guy established a unique understanding for music that has informed his musical development, and from which flows his unique sound of bittersweet harmonies, natural mixture of strong and deep grooves, and futuristic basslines. Awards in his homeland have come thick and fast, with him collecting Israeli Music Association’s award for The Best Israeli Electronic Artist in 2003, while Israel’s MTV and leading dance music magazine awarded him Best Electronic Producer in 2003 and the award for Best Export Artist in 2005. Guy has also received acclaim in his homeland for his composing for contemporary dance arts in Israel, working alongside the world-renowned choreographers Ohad Naharin and Sharon Eyal. In his field he is in the premier league of touring DJs/producers. He spent this summer in residency at Space in Ibiza, winning the much-coveted prize of Best Minimal House DJ. With his own label receiving rave reviews his status can only grow - a status that had already caught the attention of major transatlantic r’n’b stars, (rumours are rife of a collaboration with P Diddy in 2010). Recently moved to Paris, Guy is currently finishing off his second album (‘Life Transmission’) and nurturing new releases on Supplement Facts.
