Chicago Days/Detroit Nights
Recognized as one of the main techno pioneers and influential artists of recent times, Shlomi Aber has a personal approach, married with 12 years production experience, that takes influence from jazz, funk, minimal, acid and, in particular, the old-school Detroit techno movement. Aber has created some of the most recognizable and unique techno of modern times, boasting some of the world's most prestigious labels on his ever-expanding CV: Cocoon, Ovum, R&S and Renaissance, to name but a few. Growing from the classic Tel Aviv '90s underground dance scene, Shlomi's rise through the DJ ranks of his native environment is a house fairytale in its purest form, beginning with throwing regular parties for his mates in his parents' garage when he was just 14, to playing massive events such as the Love Parade, Gay Parade, Dance & Levis, and many others. Shlomi was selected one of Beatport's artists of the year for 2008 and also received a respected "Worldwide DJ Awards" nomination, placing Shlomi in the first tier of electronic music artists, headlining every prestigious club, festival or venue worldwide. 2006 saw Shlomi launch his own imprint, bookings, and artist management agency. This heralded the birth of one of the most established and top-leading labels of the underground dance music scene, the Be As One imprint. The label, with its broad range of quality underground house and techno, has become a firm favorite with the world's elite, with the only constant being that "a track must have the right feeling and stand out in its own way." After another successful EP release in 2010, Shlomi finally brings us his debut album on Ovum Chicago Days/Detroit Nights. Shlomi really shows his diversity on this LP, from the driving main-floor monsters of "Groove Mechanism" to the melodic beauty of "Taped And Gorgeous." Shlomi takes you on a journey and reveals why he is one of the most sought-after and respected producers at the moment.
