"I made 'Disorientation' after a tour in South America in January this year. Some of my friends describe it as a futuristic Ennio Morricone sounding track, which is pretty amazing. I had the saxophone sample from a friend for a long time and was always playing with it, but all the time it was too 'pretty' for me. Until a few friends joined me for a late night session; about 8am, I was twisting it through a very cool effect and I got this very weird harmony out of it, and I knew that it was made…"
'Disorientation' is Gerber's first solo EP release since his 'Belly Dancing' EP last year on Cocoon Recordings, taken from his 'Late Bloomers' album - released later in May - an album which won him massive worldwide support and with which he toured Live around the globe. "…I always like to tell a story in a track - to build a drama, then make the situation a bit chaotic and finish with an optimistic look into the future, which is also bitter/sweet …"
With 'Disorientation', Gerber's sound has taken a more natural, housey direction than his previous workings. Just as his describes, 'Disorientation' spends the first half layering: We start with a clean kick drum balanced between a ping-pong ball batting back and forth, synths descend and wash over, a violin strings through the top layer, the base drops in, the reverb works in between and The Saxophone hits for the mid-way drama… Coming down, the tension keeps a steady pace as the layers gradually become less, the bass departs and we are left with only the sounds with which we began.
"…For the remixers, I choose Johnny D because he is my favourite artist of the moment - I have to admit that his melodies touch me like no other artist from the present (I'm very picky with that) - and I want Supplement Facts to go in a more housey direction this year, his sound is fantastic for this. I also wanted this release to be a perfect after hour record and Reboot is great for that too…"Johnny D delivers exactly what is expected of him; 7.30 minutes of pure and raw house energy keeps rolling and rolling. Reboot strip it back but keep a bounce for the early hours.
"…Last year I was mostly busy with my album tour and just wanted to have my own label to release tracks. But now I'm much more focused and I want the Supplement Facts sound to be much more defined. And for sure that all the tracks should try and be special, and not just dance floor tunes." - Guy Gerber
Guy Gerber, based in Tel Aviv (Israel), released his debut album 'Late Bloomers' on Cocoon in 2007 to great world-wide support. He spent the latter half of 2007 touring and building and developing his Supplement Facts imprint to become a solid home for his own productions and those of his friends - including Chaim, David K and Re:Shuffle. As we look forward to 2008 Gerber continues to build Supplement Facts through its artist roster - with forthcoming releases already scheduled from Chris Carrier and David K - and worldwide touring. He is currently working on his Live Project album, due for release in late 2008.
