A-Trak b2b Baauer
A-Trak b2b Baauer
At a time when the DJ sits firmly at the center of popular culture, A-Trak stands out as MVP, the key participant who holds together all facets of the craft. Very few share his mastery of turntablism while also sitting at the forefront of musical innovation, looking keenly to the future with history tucked in his back pocket. A true connector, Trizzy hops effortlessly from colossal festival stages to sold-out concert venues and sweaty underground clubs, building links between hip hop and electronic music while watching genre barriers crumble.
Infected Mushroom
Infected Mushroom
Electronic dance music legends Infected Mushroom are best known for their sonic innovations and pioneering of the Psychedelic Trance genre. Twice ranked amongst the world’s “10 Best DJ’s” by DJ Magazine (the bible of the EDM scene), and with over 14 million hits on YouTube and a #8 position on the Billboard charts, the Israel-bred, L.A. based duo Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani and Erez Eisen have created one of the most powerful kingdoms in the world of dance music.

Following the success of Infected’s 2009 album “The Legend of the Black Shawarma”, Erez and Duvdev delivered their most multi-faceted electronic album to date with “Army of Mushrooms” in 2012 on Dim Mak Records. More recently, the duo released “CVII”, a long-awaited sequel to their critically acclaimed 2003 album “Converting Vegetarians”.

Adoring fans continue to congregate en masse for Infected Mushroom’s averaged 120 show/year tour. Their jaw-dropping live performances never fail to impress with psychedelic visuals, their trademark enigmatic vocals, hypnotic arrangements, and psy-trippy synthetic rhythms.

Infected Mushroom continues to sell out shows around the globe and all walks of life gather in attendance for the same reason: to experience the world’s greatest Psy-Trance band of the decade.
