GUY GERBER plays the Digital Dreams electronic music festival Saturday (June 30) at the Flats at the Molson Amphitheatre. See listing. Rating: NNNN
For over 10 years, iconic London nightclub Fabric has released monthly compilations that showcase the most compelling names in techno, house or electronica. In the newest instalment, prolific Israeli-born DJ/producer Guy Gerber (gabbed about for his mysterious 11:11 collab with P. Diddy) shames other Fabric contributors who often recycle songs or remix existing material.
Gerber offers up 16 diverse original creations (seriously, when does this guy sleep?) in his signature lush, driving, melodic style. Highlights include the moody 80s-pad-heavy Running Through The Night (featuring Footprintz's Clarian North), the upbeat hypnotic house groove of Lady Falkor (featuring the eponymous producer) and Shady Triangle, which hints at Gerber's teenage obsession with Joy Division and My Bloody Valentine.
