Infected Mushroom is in a league of their own. The Israeli music duo creates music described as psytrance, psychedelic and dance. The group is known for their consistent sound evolution and are a huge cult favorite in the Middle East. The band’s live shows feature guitars, live drums, vocals and usually a multi-media backdrop.
Together since 1998, Erez Aizen and Amit Duvdevani released their first album as Infected Mushroom in 1991. The album titled The Gathering, included one of their more popular songs “Release Me.” Infected mushroom’s most recent album is titled Army of Mushrooms. Some claim that the duo sold out their psy-trance soul to dubstep but critics like Consequence of Sound’s Alex Young disagree. Young said this about the album:
“Granted, two tracks on their newest LP, Army of Mushrooms, feature the downtempo beats and signature womp-womp bass sounds that immediately suggest EDM’s red-headed stepchild of a genre. Yet Infected Mushroom, the Israeli-born duo of Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani and Erez Aisen, infuse their dubstep experiments with plenty of psychedelic touches and unexpected twists.”
