<p>&nbsp;</p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Amit Duvdevani and Erez Eisen have been making music as Infected Mushroom since forming in Israel back in 1996. The complex variety of musical influences and instrumentation that they use has seen them forge an extremely individual identity, which has also basically defined the whole psy trance genre. </span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Their own website declares that to "pioneer your own sub genre of electronic music in the music industry today is no simple task”, and goes on to liken them to "Chuck Berry inventing rock music in 1955 or Massive Attack effectively originating trip-hop in 1983". </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;">2013 has seen the FungusAmongUS Tour rolled out, featuring 3D mapped images landscaped onto pods which project psychedelic visuals that form the backdrop for their show. When DJ Mag asked them what their own definition of the word 'psychedelic' is, they tell us that they aim to induce "good and strange feelings while listening to our music". Going on to cite Muse as their favourite non-dance act of 2013 and declaring "I'll go with real" when asked if different levels of consciousness are all in the mind, plans for 2014 include "new music, new parties, new shows and much more good times".</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p>
