Gidi Snapir - Quantum - was always obsessed with collecting music and finding new sounds. Coming from a family of musicians, he studied piano as a kid but his first encounter with electronic music came in the late 1980’s when he first heard new wave dark industrial music.

His discovery of trance in 1991 and his travels through Goa in 1992 really got him hooked. He collected a huge mass of trance music and in 1994, Eitan Mahleb, one of Israel’s first trance DJ’s, asked him to play his music at a party. He agreed and that was the turning point. Electronic music would become his life’s passion and profession.

Since 1994, Gidi has DJ’d extensively at almost every possible venue in Israel and throughout the world. Over the last decade, he performed at festivals, raves and small underground parties and was mainly associated with the Hovek Olam project for which he toured worldwide and compiled 2 albums.

Quantum- a virtual rock music band, formed in 2010 and has one album so far, Circle.

Along the way, in 1998, Gidi started Newzeek, the Israeli electronic music magazine (RIP) and he established his own weekly radio show - Tranceformator - at the “Kol HaKampus” radio station at Tel Aviv University.
