Guy Gerber Premieres New Single With Miss Kittin 'Rumors on the Dancefloor, Part 2': Exclusive
Guy Gerber knows a secret that most Ibiza partygoers do not: “It takes a minute to start a rumor but a lifetime to stop it,” he says. For the Israeli producer, it’s more than a catchy bit of wisdom, but the presiding theme of his imprint and annual party on the White Isle.
Fittingly enough, it’s also the subject matter of his new single alongside Miss Kittin, “Rumors on the Dancefloor, Part 2.” It’s the second track in the eponymous series, and in many ways, a label anthem for Gerber and crew.
Listen to the full premiere exclusively on Billboard:
The collaboration with Miss Kittin -- a French musician and fellow underground icon -- came about quite naturally. “I’ve always been a fan of hers,” Gerber says. “She was visiting our party last year and I said, ‘hey why don’t you do a release for us?’ Then she came up with this and offered to collaborate.”
The song finds Miss Kittin’s seductive, spoken word lyrics gliding over Gerber’s relentless beat. It’s a dark and sexy single -- just the kind of tune you’d expect in the waning hours of daylight on the Ibiza shoreline. As with all of Guy’s work, special attention has been given to constructing the perfect groove. In this case, it’s the kind of rhythmic proficiency that holds its own for the entire ten minutes of the composition.
For Gerber, it’s quickly become one of his favorite additions to his arsenal: “I’ve played in every set since I finished it,” he says.
“Rumors on the Dancefloor,” and its corresponding versions, will be released Friday on Guy Gerber’s label, Rumors.
