We had the chance to do a little interview with one of Israel’s most talented and worldwide beloved artists Shlomi Aber. Being a super skillful, multifaceted and experienced producer and dj, it was only the next natural step to establish his own label Be As One Imprint. His goal when founding the label was to give a push to “Highly Intelligent Music ”, as he says “No matter if it’s hard or soft, it just needs to touch your mind, body and soul at the same time”.
His latest release on Be As One is “Shlomi Aber Live At Sankeys Ibiza”! 71 minutes of the finest of electronic music, approved by thousands of people celebrating every single bass drum!
Shlomi Aber shows his solid and unique taste, bringing back the best of the previous label regulars and welcoming new artists like Yaya and Marco Faraone. The excellent tracklist with lots of unreleased songs combined with his gift of creating the perfect soundtrack for the night – this release is bringing the vibes of one of the world’s best clubs right into your home!

My name is Shlomi Abergel but you might know me as Shlomi Aber. I was born in Israel and grew up in Ashkelon. When I was a child my idol was bat man, because he is a bat man… and acting in the dark. When I was 13, I started to dj at my school parties . It was then when I realised that it will be my first and last thing I will ever do and decided to dedicate my life to experience electronic music. Since then I ‘ve been living my dream.
One of my best gigs I played was probably one of my first ones. It was so much fun because it was so naive and natural back then and I could feel the magic sparks.
One of the best gigs I have been to was at tomorrowland festival. I loved the unique location and the rockin vibe.
Now I live in Israel with my fiance, Noemie. In my house you can find lots of food, books and my beloved studio and my refrigerator is usually full with sauces…Any kind you can think about, I’m a fan. I enjoy to cook and I improved my skills a lot. I can spend hours in my studio, about 7-10 hours every day. One of my favorite places to visit is Japan, because of the amazing food and the magnificent culture.
On weekdays I am usually locking myself at home and on weekends I am usually taking the plane to a new adventure.
My favorite song at the moment is Deadbeat – I D 3. A film I watched lately and really liked was Life of pie. The last series I watched and loved was Mad Men.
I am very inspired by jazz music. My dream is to produce a Detroit jazz album with a bunch of players. My worst nightmare is to become deaf.
I love spending my evenings having dinner with my girl and hate travels with connections.
I am addicted to sweets, cakes and food in general, I just cannot stop eating as if it were my last day.
I get totally fucked up, when I play long sets and have a late flight the day after… vodka only though. The next day I need to sleep at least 10 hours to recover.
Local Suicide reminds me of how no one commits suicide in Israel…Life is just too good in here.
Tomorrow I am definitely taking my car to have it washed. Next month I’m getting married. Next year I’m moving to Ibiza. In 10 years I hope I will still be working with music.
If I wasn’t a fish, I would be a cat. If my life was a Hollywood movie, it would actually be a bollywhood movie and I would have the main role, because who can play me better then me? If I could have sex with anyone, it would be hmmm.
If I was a car, I would be one with a big fuel tank. If I was an animal, I would be a bird. If I was a drug I would be chocolate cake.. worst drug ever. If I was an invention, I would be the wheel. If I was an object, I would be a remote control. If I could date myself, I would fast realize that it’s not going to work between us.
If I could play with anyone it would be with Radiohead. I would like to collaborate with Dave Gahan.
If I had only one wish, it would be to end up the ongoing war situation in Israel.
I would never stop doing music, because it’s the only thing I can do.
My word of advice to the reader would be: there is no after life…So enjoy every moment on this planet.
