Since bursting onto the scene in 2013 with their galloping brand of progressive psy-trance, Israeli duo Vini Vici have quickly become the face of the genre. In little over four years, Aviram Saharai and Matan Kadosh's productions have amassed millions of views and their breakout remix of Hilight Tribe's 'Free Tibet' was the first psy-trance track in history to break into the top 10 of Beatport's overall chart. “Our main goal since we started Vini Vici has been to spread the psychedelic spirit to the wider world,” they tell DJ Mag.
Since then they've performed their energetic brand of in-your-face psy-trance at almost every festival imaginable, including Ultra, Tomorrowland and A State Of Trance. Whilst their success might seem like it happened overnight, that couldn't be further from the truth, as the duo spent 13 years honing their craft as Sesto Sento before they created Vini Vici. With nods from the trance elite — including Armin van Buuren, who regularly spins their tracks and collaborated with the duo for the 'Great Spirit' — Vini Vici have also been tipped for big things by psy-trance demigods Infected Mushroom, who declare the duo the most exciting psy-trance act of the moment. What makes their success so impressive is they've managed to bring psy-trance to the masses without watering down the genre's pulverising aesthetic.
