Magnetic chats backstage of Avalon w/ Infected Mushroom
Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope you made your weekends vast and epic as you should. I just wanted to touch base with everyone, catch up, and recap some time I spent last weekend with Infected Mushroom. The Israel-bred, LA based duo is made up of Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani, and Erez Eisen. They started collaborating in 1997 in Kiryat Yam, Haifa District, Israel.
In addition to twice being voted into the top 10 for DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJ’s, they have also left footprints in both dance and rock genres, having worked with Perry Farrell from Jane’s Addiction and Jonathan Davis from Korn.
The two have released such hit albums as 2009’s Legend of the Black Shwarma, which peaked at #9 on Billboard’s Top Electronic Albums chart, scored such dance hits as “Killing Time” and “Smashing the Opponent,” and to top it all off, they average about 120 live performances a year. Boom goes the dynamite. Also, out today on Dim Mak Records, “Friends on Mushrooms, Vol. 2.”
Now these live performances brought about a revolutionary live show, which I’m sure you’ll know what I’m talking about if you’ve ever been to one of their gigs. The set is a 3D landscape designed by Vita Motus Design Studio and V Squared Labs; it is truly one of a kind, and they brought it to the Avalon this past Saturday, July 7th to have a little playtime with the L.A. fans. I had the good fortune to steal a quick conversation with them before they hit the stage. (via MAGNETIC MAG)
