Infected Mushroom is an Israeli psytrance/electronica/psychedelic duo formed in Haifa in 1996 by producers Erez Eisen and Amit Duvdevani. They are one of the best-selling groups in Israeli music history, in terms of both domestic and international sales.
They employ a variety of musical sources, including acoustic guitars and complex synthesized basses, and their compositions often contain changes of drum beat and tempo. Infected Mushroom’s live shows feature vocals and analogue instruments in performances that are set against a multimedia backdrop.
Erez Eisen was born on 8 September 1980 in Qiryat Yam, Israel. He began classical training at a young age, learning to play the organ at the age of four and studied classical piano at the Haifa Conservatory from the age of eight. Eisen became involved with computerized music at age 11, beginning with Impulse Tracker and later moving to more advanced musical composition software.
