Infected Mushroom



Infected Mushroom, an Israeli psy-trance group now based in Los Angeles and fronted by Amit Duvedevani and Erez Eisen, is nothing if not prolific. Since forming in 1996, IM has dropped seven albums, appeared on more than three-dozen compilations, and rocked clubs from Moscow to Milan. The darkly rhythmic mix of trance and phat beats issued so far is the musical equivalent of a dose of psilocybin (without all those troubling hallucinations). IM's latest disc, 2009's Legend of the Black Shawarma, features a killer remix of Matisyahu's "One Day" plus collaborations with such big-name cats as Paul Oakenfold, Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, and Korn's Jonathan Davis. Try to listen to a track and not get hooked. We dare you.
