Producer Sessions 007: Guy Gerber Late Night Sketches
Producer Sessions is a series from Dancing Astronaut meant to shine a brighter light on the producer community. Each volume will guide producers towards some of the freshest sample packs, plugins, FX, and presets out there.
House stalwart Guy Gerber uses unpredictability in sound to create some of his dancefloor heaters. The DJ and producer from Israel released a tech house sample pack on Splice called “Guy Gerber Late Night Sketches.” It contains 159 high-quality loops and one one-shot, from one of the industries veteran sound explorers.
In addition to the sample pack, Gerber released two videos with Splice, outlining tips on using a randomizer plugin, arpeggios, and effects to create movement in produced music. He also does a mini-tutorial on editing drum samples by manipulating transients, layering polyrhythms, and other groove techniques.
Gerber is well-known in the underground DJ scene as his residency with Pacha in Ibiza caught mainstream buzz. Shortly after his stint in Spain, he began his own label, Rumors, with Dixon and released a collaboration album with P. Diddy, 11:11, in 2014 off the imprint.
