Biography

1) Basic is Benny Risher & Shahar Fahima. The duo, both hailing from northern Israel, met at a party a little over two years ago where Shahar was the DJ. They teamed up and started producing together under the name Basic.
Benny, born in 1974, started his psy days as early as 1994 while in his twenties. After 4 years of travelling in Goa, India and Thailand, he came back to Israel in 1998 and formed the “Diablo” project together with Avihen Livna (a.k.a Cosma R.I.P ).

Following the release of the “Diablo” album, Benny suffered a serious back injury and didn’t write music for a couple of years. In 2003, he produced & released a track under the name Experience X which was a tribute to “Cosma”.

Shahar, born in 1982, studied composing and started making music at the age of 16. He experimented with different kinds of sounds and by the time he was 18, started producing psytrance tracks under the name “Spasm”.

Both of Basic’s drivers, Benny & Shahar come from similar musical backgrounds that include classical music, reggae, rock, and even the blues.

Since starting to produce music as Basic, some of their tracks have been signed and released on various compilations worldwide:

“Master System” - (BNE/YoYo) Israel
“Facing The Sun” - (BNE/YoYo) Israel
“Basic Technologies” - (Hyperflow/Flow Rec) Portugal
“Japanic” - (Sirius Records) Japan
