Gofman & Tsukerman
Igal Gofman & Michael Tsukerman are the names behind the Israeli duo – Gofman & Tsukerman. The two met 10 years ago and discovered that they both share huge passion for electronic music – a passion that in time will bring them to produce music together.
Michael (1982) has been producing music since he was just 14 years old. As a child he discovered his big passion for music and was influenced by artists like Depeche Mode, Pink Floyd & Queen. He discovered trance when he was 12 years old and instantly fell in love, producing his own tracks was only a matter of time, and 2 years later he already started working on his own tracks. His first breakthrough came in 2003 when he released his first track “The rise of nations” under the German label “Drizzly”. The track was a big success on the dance floors around the world and introduced his name to the global trance scene.
Later on tracks like “Memories from the future”, “My name is sawtooth”, “Are you mad” & “Tel Aviv” were played by the biggest names in the industry including Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Tiesto, Judge Jules, Cosmic Gate & many more.
His latest track “Sivan” has left quite an impression on Armin Van Buuren and was selected to appear on the highly acclaimed “A state of trance 2009″ compilation.
Michael has also a monthly radio show on sense.fm radio station called “Music Refinery” where he delivers each month a 2 Hour DJ set for many of his listeners.
The other half of the duo is Igal Gofman (1984). Igal has been listening to music since he can remember himself – growing up on artists like Michael Jackson, Daft Punk & the Prodigy – he knew that producing music was his future and what he wanted to do most.
At the age of 16 after saving some money he finally bought his own equipment and started working on his dj’ing skills playing on both vinyl’s & cd’s. Eventually his love for music brought him to start producing his own tracks and after few years of producing various styles of electronic music, he decided to expand his technical knowledge and skills and went to the Israeli college for sound & music – BPM.
2008 was the year Michael and Igal decided to join forces and started producing music together under the alias “Gofman & Tsukerman”. Michael’s love for trance and and Igal’s house influences generated their unique and original fusion of styles.
In 2010, after a lot of work their first EP “One way back” was released on Armada’s sub-label Pilot 6 and was supported by Armin Van Buuren on his weekly radio show – “A state of trance”. Later on they released their second EP – “Ethnica” – with their new and familiar sound.
This year is looking very busy for this duo as they are currently working on numerous projects planned for the near future. We suggest you keep your eyes open out for them as many new materials are waiting to be released!
