Dance is a very well travelled phenomenon. It first came to the fore in Chicago, then flew to Manchester via New York, before taking up more permanent residence in London. There were vacations to noticeable destinations such as Amsterdam, Australia, Barcelona and, of course, Italy, before a massive relocation to Berlin. However, its current holiday destination of choice is, without question, Israel. And why? Two words – Shlomi Aber.

Over the past Two Years Shlomi’s had the kind of impact usually reserved for inbound meteors, the reason for which is buried in a ground swell of genre-defying appreciation and support. Be it Sven Väth, Carl Craig, Pete Tong, John Digweed, Richie Hawtin or Francois K, all are championing this young prodigy; a comment taken from a recent Radio 1 interview provides a probable insight as to why his productions are hitting such a broad mark, “No matter if it’s hard or soft, it just needs to touch your mind, body and soul at the same time. That’s what I call a good record.”

This personal approach, married with 8 years production experience that takes influence from jazz, funk, minimal, acid and, in particular, techno means he now boasts some of the world’s most prestigious labels on his ever-expanding CV: Cocoon, Ovum, and Renaissance to name but a few. Tracks such as “Sea Of Sand”, “After Love”, and “Tel Aviv Garden” have become engraved on Top 10 bestseller lists for 2006, whilst his release “Crop Duster” has already been described in M8 as “… a classy piece of main room fodder … a real dance floor hit.” till his worldwide techno hit with Ovum Recordings “Freakside” which no need even to mention why it becomes Shlomi’s trademark.

The accolades from the press don’t end there either; his sets have also been cited for their unique ability to cohesively traverse genres; DJmag positively wrote in a recent article, “Shlomi’s sets are full with warm and unique sounds that makes you feel like you are going back to the better days of music, it was something I can’t define just by one word, if I must I will call it something between house and techno. With his fascinating technical skills, accurate programming and music selection, you can just feel the magic in the air.” Quite a statement.

His rise through the DJ ranks of his native Israel is the house fairytale in its purest form, beginning with throwing regular parties for his mates in his parent’s garage when he was just 14!, support soon developed and he was able to take on bigger underground venues, increase his local profile to massive events as The Love Parade, Gay Parade, Dance & Levis and many others.

Back to the present, and things look just as bright. He’s increasing his international touring with already full schedule for few months ahead, and has more single releases on the slate with Renaissance, Cocoon and Ovum. Plus, as if that weren’t enough, he’s just about to release his upcoming new album “Chicago Days Detroit Nights” on Ovum (release date: 24.09.2010).

Still feeling he has a lot to fulfill; Shlomi has also recently launched his own record label. This heralded the birth of Be As One Recordings. The label’s focus is on releasing quality underground music from the wide range between house and techno, with the only constant being that “a track must have the right feeling and stand out in its own way”. With already massive worldwide support from many of the top DJs, features in both magazines and many charts, Be As One Recordings established itself as one of the top leading labels in the underground dance music scene.
