Guy Gerber (born in 1974 in Holon, near Tel Aviv) is an electronic DJ/producer and musician who specializes in making music with synthesizers and live instrumentation in the techno scene and beyond. Gerber regularly DJs across the globe.

At the age of 15, Gerber was a member of the Israeli Under-16 national football team but soon developed a passion for music and found himself drawn to English guitar acts like Joy Division and Irish guitar acts like My Bloody Valentine. Consequently, his harmonic, shoe-gaze inspired sound was a style that saw Gerber record for various European electronic labels including ‘Stoppage Time’ for John Digweed’s Bedrock imprint.

Gerber’s first full length album ‘Late Bloomers’ was released on Sven Väth’s Cocoon imprint in June 2007 and featured two worldwide club hits in ‘Belly Dancing’ and ‘Sea Of Sand’ which he recorded with his Israeli production friend Shlomi Aber. In addition to his productions, Guy also found time to remix New Order and Dominik Eulberg as well as setting up his own label Supplement Facts. More recently, he’s remixed ‘The L Word’ by Deniz Kurtel and ‘Hungry For The Power’ by Azari & III.

Now living in Madrid, Supplement Facts has just celebrated its 5th anniversary with the compilation album ‘Heartbeats’. As well as releasing Gerber’s own productions like ‘Disorientation’, Supplement Facts is also home to exclusive music by Lee Curtiss, David K, Michel Cleis and Varoslav feat dOP.

In 2014, he cooperated with Puff Daddy for the album 11 11, a title which Gerber once said was meant to indicate "a date when a mystical gate is open and two worlds collide.".[1]
