Quantum is Gidi Snapir, also known as DJ Gidi (Hovek Olam). Gidi was born 1970 and lives in Tel-Aviv, where is studio is as well. Gidi comes out of a family of musicians, studies piano as a kid, and has always liked music of all kinds. As far as he remembers he was always obsessed with collecting music and finding new sounds. His first encounter with electronic music was with new wave dark Industrial music in the end of the 80s. He discovered trance in 91 and got really hooked while traveling through Goa in 1992. In 1994, after collecting a huge mass of trance music, one of the first trance DJs in Israel, Eitan Mahleb, asked him to come play his music in a party. He agreed and since then did not stop making it his profession and life center. He has DJed extensively in almost every possible spot in Israel and all over the world. In 2000 he decided to start fulfilling his dream and make his own music. He first collaborated with few artists as Gorlation Corporation, BLT, Alien Project, PPS Project & others and all the while worked on his own music, until he finally got his own Quantum project going, and signed with BNE. Along the way, in 1998, Gidi also started Newzeek, the Israeli electronic music magazine (RIP) and he has his own weekly radio show- Tranceformator- in Kol Hakampus radio station in Tel Aviv since 1998.
