Infected Mushroom, aka Erez Eisen and Amit Duvdevani, had something of an epiphanic show this year, among the most important of their careers. The Israeli production duo were invited personally by the mayor of Jerusalem to play an unheard-of gig in the ancient city.
The LA residents, though originally from Haifa in the north, could not refuse.
“We didn't know what to expect, but it drew 14,000 people, religious and non-religious, all jumping in one place,” says Amit. “Hopefully it will now be a tradition in Jerusalem, and we can bring some international acts with us to show them how it is. We do shows in Tel Aviv and Haifa, but to do it in this holy city, it was so special.”
As if that wasn't enough, they're flipping their style for their next album, due out early next year. The last saw them flirting with heavy metal, but this time, it's pure electronic, taking in dubstep, electro and drum & bass along with their trademark psy-trance.
“We've always liked to experiment, and we like some of the artists that are bringing dubstep to the dancefloor,” he says, citing US star Skrillex as a producer to have blown them away this year. “So we thought, 'let's give it a go'.”
And why not?
