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.
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 forward to 2007, 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 singer, Jonathan Davis. By no coincidence on the title, did Smashing the Opponent album-hit #8 on the Billboard charts.
