Guy will be celebrating with a huge closing party, bringing an impressive lineup of names to the Talamanca setting. First up is Kenny Glasgow, who has long been a friend of Guy and RUMORS. Whilst he’s most well known for having been part of Art Department for five years, the Canadian DJ and producer has been immersed in the scene for over two decades. Likewise, Bill Patrick is a close friend of Guy’s – the DJ’s DJ is a popular guest of the RUMORS parties, both in Ibiza and abroad. Having honed his craft in New York’s legendary clubs in the city’s nightlife heyday – The Limelight, Vinyl and Arc – he’s deeply respected within the DJ world for his selection skills, whilst never having produced a record. Meanwhile, Spanish duo Acid Mondays released a well received EP on the RUMORS label towards the end of last year, and regularly play at respected clubs internationally; Circo Loco at DC-10, London’s fabric, The Warehouse Project, BPM Mexico and Warung Brazil to name but a few. Lastly influential Ibiza Sonica founder Igor Marijuan will be on hand to provide authentic Ibicencan beats.

Don’t miss this final chance to catch the respected artist in his element on the island, before he embarks on a busy autumn season of touring across Europe and North and South America.

The party’s unique ethos and stunning production has made it a standout event in Ibiza. With acts like Sasha, Dubfire, Chaim, Cassy and Nic Fanciulli having already put in appearances at RUMORS so far this season, it’s been the party’s biggest summer yet – join the team as they celebrate a monumental 22 week run in style this Sunday.

Guy Gerber Secret Encounters

Guy Gerber returns to his own RUMORS label, with his first release since the success of last summer’s ‘Rumors On The Dancefloor’ EP, featuring Miss Kittin.

Guy’s RUMORS label has quickly established itself as a breeding ground for innovative and progressive techno, thanks to it’s steadily-growing catalogue of high- calibre productions: RUMORS was the home for Gerber and Puff Daddy’s album 11 11. A fusion of spoken word, rap and diverse shades of electronica that was released as a free download, 11 11 proved Gerber’s willingness to take risks.

‘Secret Encounters’ is Guy’s first solo EP on RUMORS, and more than lives up to the high standard he’s set for the label.
Featuring lead track ‘Secret Encounters’ and B side ‘Full Circle’, the EP strongly channels the atmosphere that Guy aims to create at his RUMORS event series and Ibiza residency; the producer previously revealed snippets of both tracks to the public in a recorded mix live from RUMORS at Destino earlier this summer.

Despite his increasingly busy touring schedule, the ‘Secret Encounters’ EP proves Guy’s love for the studio is as strong as ever. His attention to detail shines through across both tracks, each of which fit in perfectly with the kind of dark, enigmatic house and techno that has become the hallmark of the RUMORS brand.

Red Axes join Guy Gerber for RUMORS this Sunday

With the Ibiza season now in full swing, revered producer Guy Gerber is gearing up for the fourteenth edition of this year’s RUMORS residency on Sunday, 21st August. Held in the beautiful outdoor setting of Destino, a plush events space set atop the cliffs of Talamanca, every RUMORS party promises bespoke, detail-orientated production alongside quality underground house and techno; this week, it comes courtesy of Red Axes and RUMORS residents Jenia Tarsol and Sean Doran.

Also hailing from Guy Gerber’s own hometown of Tel Aviv, Red Axes will be bringing another diverse and exciting set to RUMORS – their previous appearance at the party was recorded and is on the RUMORS Soundcloud. The duo, DJs and producers Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi, were raised on a diet of post-punk, new-wave, and Italo-disco at fogged out warehouse and basement parties. Their own productions and remixes have appeared on labels such as I’m a Cliché, Correspondant, and Hivern Discs. Regulars at some of the world’s most respected parties and brands, the pair’s summer touring schedule takes in Belgium, Croatia, New York, Montreal, San Francisco, Germany and London.

Guy’s RUMORS sets have become the stuff of Ibiza legend amongst those in the know, with the parties consistently attracting a clued up and international crowd. Expect a mixture of Guy’s own new and unreleased materials, that of his RUMORS compatriots and a few twists and turns along the way. For a taste of what Guy’s unique RUMORS sets sound like, listen back to a live recording from the 26th June on Soundcloud.

Cassy, Sasha, Dubfire, Kenny Glasgow, Chaim, Nic Fanciulli, Ryan Crosson, Dubfire and Thugfucker are just a selection of names also confirmed to put in an appearance at RUMORS this summer. One of the longest residencies of the 2016 Ibiza season, RUMORS will continue its well curated musical ethos, expanding and building on Guy’s famed residency with a plethora of special guests and magical surprises.

Outside of Ibiza, Guy’s also brought his RUMORS parties to a selection of other special European locations this summer, with two successful parties in Mykonos and Sardinia having been held so far.

With the Ibiza season now in full swing, revered producer Guy Gerber is gearing up for the tenth edition of this year’s RUMORS residency on Sunday, 24th July. Held in the beautiful outdoor setting of Destino, a plush events space set atop the cliffs of Talamanca, every RUMORS party promises bespoke, detail-orientated production alongside quality underground house and techno. It’s a special week this week, as Guy is joined by genuine musical legend Sasha.

Sasha is well known for his groundbreaking past, starting his career at Shelley’s and The Hacienda before moving onto true superstar DJ status during the early 2000s. However, not one to rest on his laurels, Sasha is constantly innovating and pursuing new sounds, whether that’s through his successful label Last Night On Earth, his landmark Involver series, and his surprisingly ambient ‘modern classical’ album for Late Night Tales ‘Scene Delete’, released earlier this year. He’s still the master of the atmospheric build up in his DJ sets, which are always packed full of fresh material from his label and friends. He makes a perfect match for the RUMORS parties and Guy’s musical ethos.

For a taste of what Guy Gerber himself has to offer at the residency, make sure to check out a live recording of his set at RUMORS on the 26th June on Soundcloud.
Cassy, dOP, Dubfire, Kenny Glasgow, Chaim, Matthew Dear, Nic Fanciulli, Ryan Crosson, Dubfire and Thugfucker are just a selection of names also confirmed to put in an appearance at RUMORS this summer. One of the longest residencies of the 2016 Ibiza season, RUMORS will continue it’s well curated musical ethos, expanding and building on Guy’s famed residency with a plethora of special guests and magical surprises.

Outside of Ibiza, Guy’s also got three more major European RUMORS events lined up so far this summer. The first is in the idyllic setting of Alegamou beach club in Mykonos this Friday 22nd July, whilst a special date at Sardinia for Guy’s birthday at Phi Beach is set for the 4th August. Later in the month, he’ll be presenting a landmark RUMORS label showcase in Room 1 of London’s notorious fabric on August 20th.

This week at RUMORS – Guy Gerber, Lauren Lane and Echonomist

With the Ibiza season now in full swing, revered producer Guy Gerber is gearing up for the ninth edition of this year’s RUMORS residency on Sunday, 17th July. Held in the beautiful outdoor setting of Destino, a plush events space set atop the cliffs of Talamanca, every RUMORS party promises bespoke, detail-orientated production alongside quality underground house and techno; this week, it comes courtesy of Lauren Lane, Echonomist and WHO.

Lauren Lane first cut her teeth on the fast-paced underground New York club circuit, which provided a solid grounding for her now hectic worldwide tour schedule. With a number of major clubs and festivals under her belt (Paradise Ibiza, elrow Barcelona, SW4 in London, EDC New York and BPM Mexico), Lauren’s DJing prowess has seen her become a RUMORS favourite. As a producer, she’s released EPs both on Nic Fanciulli’s Saved and Eats Everything’s Edible records.

Hailing from Greece, Echonomist has been active since the late 90s under various guises. A prolific and diverse producer, he will also be joining Guy at his upcoming RUMORS label showcase at the respected fabric in London. Support also comes from WHO, an elusive French DJ/producer who has swiftly made a name for himself in Ibiza, thanks to a star turn as resident of both HYTE and the Zoo Project last summer.

For a taste of what Guy Gerber himself has to offer at the residency, you can also now check out a live recording of his set at RUMORS on the 26th June on Soundcloud.

On the other hand, the RUMORS events have spread worldwide with showcases during Art Basel Miami, BPM Mexico and events in London, New York, LA, and Buenos Aires. However, it’s the Ibiza residency that set partygoers’s tongues wagging; with the likes of Sasha, Miss Kittin, Kenny Glasgow and Matthew Dear gracing the lineup with Gerber last year, it’s set the standard on what we can expect this season with a long list of special guests already lined up.

Guy Gerber brings RUMORS to Mykonos on Friday 22nd July

Acid Mondays release ‘Tacos Per Minute’ on Guy Gerber’s RUMORS imprint

The duo Acid Mondays have brought their quirky forms of house and techno to a wealth of respected labels over the years – Warp, Circus and 2020 Vision to name but a few. Now, Negghead and Lex Wolf can add Guy Gerber’s forward-thinking RUMORS to that list, with their humorously-titled ‘Tacos Per Minute’ EP which looks set to add to the imprint’s hard-earned reputation as a breeding ground for innovative techno.

The eponymous lead track features skittering metallic echos, a pulsing sub-bass, distorted vocals and futuristic synth chords for an atmospheric opener.

The first of the B-sides, ‘Mezcalid’ takes things darker and deeper. Rattling, mechanical percussion combines with a satisfyingly heavy, rhythmic bassline before joining skipping riders for an irresistible groove.

That characteristic sub-bass makes a reappearance in ‘Techno Wellies’, a track whose driving drums and uptempo claps set the scene for a multitude of echoing effects and shimmying percussion eventually developing into a samba-esque piece of techno.

The ‘Tacos Per Minute’ EP is a danceable yet quirky techno release, whose attention to percussive detail and slightly dusty feel mark it out as a characteristic Acid Mondays production, sitting comfortably amongst the high-calibre catalogue of RUMORS releases.
