EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Infected Mushroom

Infected Mushroom, comprised of long time pals Erez Eisen and Amit ‘Duvedev’ Duvdevani, is one of those names that just resonates. Everyone has an early memory of what their music meant to them as fans came into their electronic music own. They have a prolific discography, having just produced their eighth studio album ‘Army of Mushrooms’ out May 8 on Dim Mak Records, which shot to #1 on the iTunes Dance Music chart its first day available. Having created music from across the electronic spectrum, with roots in the psy trance movement, ‘Army of Mushrooms’ is a reflection of the impact of today’s relevant dance music on the duo, namely the rise of electro and dubstep. Whether you have fond recollections of ‘Deeply Disturbed’ or Infected Mushroom’s cover of the iconic Israeli song from Barry Sakharof ‘Birthday,’ ‘Army of Mushrooms’ has something for you. Make sure to listen to the whole interview to learn a tasty tidbit about their unannounced NYC show coming in the fall, which will bring their new never before seen live imaging show to the fair city.
