The best psy trance artists ever.
Erez and Amit Duvdevany from Israel have sold more than 250,000 albums world-wide and more than one million people have flocked to see them live. Brothers who were classically trained, hated it, but now extremely grateful towards their mother because their classical music skills greatly contributes to writing their own music.
Infected Mushroom playing live is simply astonishing. They actually PLAY LIVE, with synthesizers, electric guitars that are crazily tuned, and singing. In Israel and Brazil they are treated as proper rock stars.
Even though psy trance is much deeper underground than trance, Infected Mushroom has sustained places in the top 50 DJ Mag polls. Their albums include Israliens and one of their best tracks is Arabian Nights on Mescaline.
OMGuh just listen to IM's tracks! You'd have to be on magic mushroom

Infected Mushroom's coming to Peru? Let's go and get infected!
Totally F-ing sweet psy-trance techno group from Israel.
When I heard Infected Mushroom play at Organix last night, I totally shit my pants. God they are sweet.
N. An incredible trance artist or group. I honestly have no idea which.
Did you hear the new Infected Mushroom track?
Producing music together since the late 1990s as Infected Mushroom, Amit Duvdevani and Erez Aizen have gained much recognition and fame for the style and prowess of their music making abilities, especially in the area of blending electronic and organic sounds together. But in the last five or so years of IM’s existence, controversy over style has made many devoted fans bitter over the artists’ attempts to expand their sound. Type “Infected Mushroom” into Google, and you will easily find dozens of forums of people complaining about IM's new direction. For future reference, IM’s "old" stuff is music produced mainly from their albums Classical Mushroom, BP Empire, The Gathering, and Converting Vegetarians, CD 1. IM's "new" stuff is everything from Converting Vegetarians CD2 and later. This classification is not exact, just a vague categorization of art.
Often, people’s complaints are that they hate the "lame" lyrics, the "simple" chords, the "poor" singing abilities of the artists, and especially the drift away from their original sound, GOA Psychedelic Trance. Conversely, many fans love the new trend in IM’s sound. It might be possible to say that the negative reactions are caused by people who are closed-minded to change. They liked the original sound, and want more of it; they don’t want the artist to move on to new stuff they don’t like and aren’t used to. They hate the addition of significant lyrics, and other "new" sounds.
IM has already proved that the...
A good psytrance/goa group. Ruined by 15 year olds who obsess over them and say "OMG YOUR SO EMO" if you don't listen to it.
Infected Mushroom is a great group.
