Guy Gerber has always favoured the road less travelled. The Israeli DJ thrives on confounding expectations. What other underground DJ could collaborate with one of hip-hops biggest moguls, Puff Daddy, or start a left-field night at one of Ibiza’ s most commercial clubs, Pacha? What other producer blends the worlds of melancholy and euphoria so effortlessly, or turns in a breakup album as an official mix for a revered club brand? It’ s these kind of contradictions that define Gerber’ s compelling duality. Before he was fiddling with drum machines and synths, Gerber was all about groups like Joy Division and My Bloody Valentine. Whether it be his hypnotising live performances or contemplative, moody productions, these influences still echo clearly in his music today.
