Live old and newskool set of at least 2.5 hours ! ! !
Mining Israelian Goa trance of its hottest intensities, Infected Mushroom remain one of the Middle East's biggest international cult successes. Erez Aizen's cheap background in obsessed bedroom computer tinkering had led him into and out of a number of crude dance efforts, and when a mutual friend suggested he should get together with Amit Duvdevani, a trash metal fan who had just returned from an aborted career path in India, the two found enough in common to surreptitiously explore the rising psychedelic trends pouring out the nation's clubs. The results -- 1998's The Gathering, which was heavily inspired by the surreal ambient dance of Simon Posford, X-Dream, and Transwave, and 2000's Classical Mushroom, an aggressively melodic trance LP that broke the European, Japanese, and American markets -- elevated Infected Mushroom to one of Israel's key trance producing duos.
nowedays they give a full live show with 5 people
Hallucinogen is Simon Posford, a producer of psychedelic trance music from England. His first album, Twisted, was one of the most widely influential psy-trance recordings. The follow-ups, "Deranger" EP and "The Lone Deranger" album only cemented his influence. Simon Posford is also known for his collaboration with Raja Ram, together they form the cult psychedelic chillout act Shpongle. He has many other side projects such as Younger Brother (with Benji Vaughan), Celtic Cross (with Martin Glover, aka Youth), some tracks with The Infinity Project, Beast, and many others. While he has only released two Hallucinogen albums, he has remained very active in many projects.
His album "Twisted" is the best selling psy trance-album ever.
SPHONGLE DJ set
The members of Shpongle include Simon Posford and Raja Ram, in addition to many collaborators and guest musicians.
Simon Posford is also the driving force behind Hallucinogen and the label Twisted Records, while
Raja Ram is member of 1200 Micrograms. He also works with Graham Wood, Anjee Sian and other contributors/collaborators as The Infinity Project. Raja Ram is also founder of the indo-prog/raga rock group of the 60's/70's Quintessence.
Their sound is a mix of mainly eastern ethnic samples and western contemporary psychedelic synth music. Posford is responsible for the synth and studio work while Raja Ram contributes with flute arrangements. They are both responsible for the visionary input. According to one interview, they commonly visualize the music together before and during the creation process.
Shpongle's first tune, Vapour Rumors, was released on TIP Records' Infinite Excursions compilation in 1996. Their debut album, Are You Shpongled?, was released 1998 on Twisted Records. The high sound quality, successful mix of samples, instruments and synths along with the story and progress of the music through the album made it one of the most cutting edge releases of that time. Are You Shpongled? and Twisted Records' first downtempo compilation, Eclipse, made a huge impact on the psychedelic trance scene in 1998.
