Guy Gerber is a DJ that earns his bread and deserves his cred. The restless Israeli musician and producer is known for his feats of endurance – spinning for 12 hours straight at Burning Man, for instance – as well as for his continuous genre-spanning creative production. He's collaborated with Puff Daddy, remixed New Order, and travelled the world throwing clandestine underground dance parties all while consistently releasing albums that do that increasingly rare thing in the world of electronic music: sound like nothing else. He synthesizes influences that range from My Bloody Valentine to R&B, creating an instantly recognizable brand of shoegazey progressive house. But do all these words really give you a sense of the man? Not really. So we caught up with Gerber on the eve of the return of his much-loved RUMORS party to Los Angeles (April 1st in Chinatown, with DJ Harvey!) to answer the all-important question: What's in your fridge?

  Cooking - I don't consider myself a good cook, but food is definitely a huge passion in my life, and is always more fun when drinking wine. I keep a big stock of my favorite wine, to host, or to give to the host.

Solitude Is A Luxury - I could spend my entire life between my musical instruments and I would never get bored. I am never more myself than when playing. Outside of this room there are many me's - but the real one is the one in the studio with a guitar.

Boots - Rock n Roll - the most rock and roll thing you can say is "I'm quitting the band." You had better do it while wearing leather boots.

Getting Inspired - There's nothing i like more than a view of city lights. If its just nature i get a little depressed. Here in LA the view from my house is something that inspires me everyday. The contrast between the hills and humanity, you can almost see people's dreams floating up to the sky amid the lights.

Escape - recently i discovered a little piece of heaven - Santa Teresa, Costa Rica - I met some of the nicest people there and can't wait to go back the most beautiful sunsets. A perfect place to lose myself for a few days.
