mp3: infected mushroom astrix remix

    Two titans of the psychedelic trance world, Astrix and Infected Mushroom, have come together to release this free MP3, the former's remix of the latter's "Killing Time." Go figure, it doesn't exactly sound like a killer psytrance tune. I will try not to let this affect my judgement of the song, a decent but somewhat flat progressive trance/house sounding track iced with some melancholy vocals. While Astrix's music always has elements of that sound in it, I was really waiting for that "rolling" kick and bass groove that practically defines the psytrance sound that both parties helped bring from the Israeli underground to a wider audience in the early 2000's. Ah well, can't win 'em all.

    Astrix, nee Avi Shmailov, is coming off the release of his latest studio album Red Means Distortion, which includes the "Killing Time" remix. He was voted the world's 55th hottest DJ in DJ Magzine's top 100 poll in 2009, with 2010 results to be released shortly. He is spinning at festival dates all over the world in support and will embark upon a brief tour of India, although he won't reach the US in the near future.

    Infected Mushroom, officially only multi-instrumentalist Erez Isen and singer and multi-instrumentalist Amit Duvdevani, are in the midst of a massive world tour backed by a full band that will take them into next year. They will be in the North America through early November, and will return in December and stay through the New Year. Their last album, Legend of the Black Shawarma was released during the summer of 2009. They hit number 12 in the 2009 DJ Magazine poll. -peter menniti
