Guy Gerber has quickly emerged as one of the most respected names in dance music. His first release, Stoppage Time on Bedrock Records, quickly reached anthem status at Amnesia, one of Ibiza’s famous clubs. Subsequent releases, as well as performances at Fabric, Goa, Panorama, and Cocoon, reinforced his name and placed him on electronica’s “A List.”
“The Mirror Game” EP marks Gerber’s first original production release since 2010 and keeps the intensity and quality you’d expect from the Tel Aviv native. It’s a blend of progressive electronic that is as moving as it is moody. The title track, “The Mirror Game,” is dark and cryptic with ratcheting drums, intense pianos and oozing bass. The Snake Pit dub plays more like a soundtrack, with the drums stripped down just to a sharp, stabbing, snare. If you’re looking for a dancefloor track, the b-side “One Day In May” has the punchy drums and more friendly harmonies to get people moving.
This release is a prelude to the “Steady” EP, slated to be release this May. “The Mirror” EP is out today—April 16, 2012 on Visionquest Records.
