Infected Mushroom @ Infected Mushroom

Infected Mushroom, an Israeli-based psy-trance group fronted by Amit Duvdevani and Erez Eisen, are nothing if not prolific. Since forming in 1996, they've dropped seven albums, appeared on more than three-dozen compilations, and rocked clubs from Moscow to Milan. Their heady mix of trance and phat beats has produced darkly rhythmic and entrancing mixes that are the musical equivalent of a dose of psilocybin (just without all those troubling hallucinations). Their latest disc (2009's Legend of the Black Shawarma) featured a rather killer remix of Matisyahu's "One Day," as well as collaborations from big-name cats like Paul Oakenfold, Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, and Korn's Jonathan Davis. Try listening to one of their tracks and not get hooked. We dare you.
