Biography

H̱efa, Israel (1998 – present)

Infected Mushroom is an music group. Originally formed as a duo by Erez Aizen (also known as I.Zen) and Amit Duvdevani (also known as Duvdev), in Haifa, Israel. Both currently reside in Los Angeles.

Infected Mushroom is known for their consistent sonic evolution exemplified by the following albums: “The Gathering” (1999), “Classical Mushroom” (2000), “B.P. Empire” (2001), “Converting Vegetarians” (2003), “IM the Supervisor” (2004), “Vicious Delicious” (2007), “Legend of the Black Shawarma” (2009)’ and “Army of Mushrooms” (2012)’

Their live shows feature guitars, live drums and vocals, with a multimedia backdrop.

In 1998, Aizen and Duvdevani began playing together. At first they released a few tracks as “Shidapu & Duvdev”. These tracks were ‘happier’ and on the simpler side of trance. Later on, they formed the duo “Infected Mushroom” and started working on their first album. The name “Infected Mushroom” was taken, without permission, from a disbanded (1989 to 1993) punk rock band of that name also of Israeli origin, which Duvdevani knew and saw perform at a concert in Israel.

1999’s “The Gathering” was the breakthrough debut album for “Infected Mushroom”. The album featured a dark, rhythmic atmosphere exemplified in the song “Psycho”, which gathered much acclaim and popularity. This album was one of the first albums to bring Israeli psy-trance to more ‘mainstream’ audiences, and contributed to the gradually growing popularity of the genre world-wide. The following year, the duo released one of their most well known albums, also being one of the most well known albums in the genre today, “Classical Mushroom”.
