Infected Mushroom (Live, plus Classic Psy DJ set)
To pioneer your own sub genre of electronic music in the music industry today is no simple task, it is essentially equivalent to
Chuck Berry inventing Rock music in 1955 or Massive Attack effectively originating Trip Hop in 1983 . . .
Electronic music, mega-revolutionaries, Infected Mushroom, are renowned for being the sonic innovators of crafting hypnotic
arrangements, complex layered melodies and synthetic rhythms known as “Psychedelic Trance,” leaving behind all their dying “Trance” cousins in the mainstream . . .
Twice ranked as the world’s “10 Best DJ’s” by the Bible of the
Scene (U.K.’s DJ Magazine), the Israel-bred, L.A. based duo Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani and Erez Eisen have established their self invented genre among the highest in the scene.
One could easily scour pages of the Internet in vain to find the
epic level of music history defining the Infected Mushroom
“kingdom.” Their most notable achievements include: 1999
breakthrough debut album, The Gathering, which gained immediate attention on club dance floors and in the hands of Goa/Psy-Trance DJ’s . . .
Fast >> 2007’s their critically acclaimed and highest-grossing
album Vicious Delicious, catapulted the duo onto new levels. The success of that album was met with high anticipation for another which was dropped in 2009 with the The Legend of the Black Shawrama. The album included noteworthy hit track, Smashing the Opponent, for featuring guest vocals by legendary Korn lead Jonathan Davis. By no coincidence on the title, did
Smashing the Opponent album-hit #8 on the Billboard charts.
If that’s not impressive enough—there is the band’s average 120
live performances a year including, repeat, sold-out shows from
the Ultra Fest in Miami to the Virgin Festival in Baltimore, from
Mexico’s OMIX to Cali’s Coachella, to Brazil’s Ipanema Beach, and from Melbourne’s Metro Club to the 2009 and 2011 Burningman Festival in Black Rock City for Opulent Temple, Nevada. Not to mention collaborations with big Rock legends; Ray Manzarek (The Doors), Perry Farrell (Jane’s addiction) and then their insane amount (roughly 14,000,000) hits on You Tube simply cannot go without mention . . .
The best is always yet to come with Erez and Duvdev; in early
2012 they released the Army of Mushrooms, their most multifaceted electronic album delivery to date since 2009’s “Legend of the Black Shawarma.” Army of Mushroom’s doesn’t hold back for a second, doing what the guys “do best”−invent, experiment, create, re-arrange, flip-up, bend-over, twist-sideways while staying true to their electronic roots diced with their own flavor—dash of added breaks, dubstep, and of course, always trippy and psychedelic. 2013 marks a year of reinvention for the duo as they embark on the "FungusAmoungUS Tour" with an all new 3D mapped experience. Infected's new
production is truly one of a kind. Stimulating 3D mapped visuals are landscaped onto "pods", projecting psychedelic visuals that
become the backdrop for enigmatic vocals, hypnotic arrangements, and psy-trippy synthetic rhythms . . .
Adoring fans continue to descend below Infected’s stage en masseat festivals and stadiums shows–Nocturnal Wonderland (Texas/Los Angeles), World Electronic Music Festival (WEMF) in Canada, Electric Daisy Carnival (Las Vegas, Nevada), and the Opulent Temple at Burningman (Black Rock City, Nevada).
All walks of life to experience Infected
Mushroom, the world’s greatest Psy-Trance band of the decade.
Because of their constant musical development, Erez Aizen and Amit Duvdevani were able to gather a huge international fanbase around them.
After the release of their third album "B.P.Empire", they moved away from the established Israeli Psy-Trance sound, giving their music an experimental character.
Infected Mushroom relocated to Los Angeles in early 2006.
