September 16th, 2022 — With a career spanning a quarter century, legendary Israeli duo Infected Mushroom celebrate their 25-year anniversary today with the full-length masterpiece, ‘IM25.’ From the reggae-infused “Business As Usual” to the Hebrew cyber-pop single, “Zazim Beyhad (We Move Together),” the album is chock full of diverse records across genres and languages that demonstrate their legacy in electronic music. Having worked with disparate icons like Lady Gaga and Korn, the duo have cemented themselves as highly skilled producers with experimentation at their core.

Infected Mushroom explore new techniques on ‘IM25’ that achieve their kaleidoscopic vision for the package, as seen on tracks like “Billy On Mushrooms,” an unexpected yet brilliant pairing of glitch hop and thrashing electric guitars. As they continue to reinvent themselves without straying from the project’s roots in the late ’90s, they welcome a melting pot of collaborators to flavour the milestone LP with eclectic sounds and perspectives from Ninet Tayeb, Hope 6, Nick Hexum, Bliss, May Sfadia, Joseph E-Shine, and Mr. Bill.

Infected Mushroom share,Each and every album of Infected Mushroom is a defining moment in time that displays the prolific nature of our work. ‘IM25’ is definitely experimental; it pushes the boundaries of dance music and celebrates a quarter century of the evolution of our sound. It’s impossible to capture our gratitude for this crazy ride, and for all of the wonderful people in our lives. Here’s to another 25.

Earlier this year, the duo brought their immersive ‘IM25’ show to their native Tel Aviv, performing some of their most beloved tracks and new album singles to over 20,000 fans. Next, they’ll take their career-defining body of work on a global tour covering 30 cities, including shows at LA’s Exchange, Le Trianon in Paris, Brooklyn Bowl, and a return to Tel Aviv for back-to-back shows at BARBI.

Infected Mushroom Bio

After twenty five years making waves in the scene, Infected Mushroom has earned their reputation as a groundbreaking legend in electronic music. Twice ranked amongst the world’s “10 Best DJ’s” by DJ Magazine, with streaming numbers in the tens of millions and a cult following of die-hard fans, the Israel-bred, LA-based duo has created one of the most powerful kingdoms in the world of electronic music.

The combined force of Israeli producers Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani and Erez Eisen, Infected is world-renowned for their sonic innovations, genre-defying sound, and unrivaled production quality. This trademark sound is cultivated through hypnotic arrangements, layered melodies, and a willingness to blur the lines of genre.

While widely recognized as pioneers of psytrance music, over the years Infected has demonstrated an ability to not only break the rules, but create their own rulebook entirely, and inspire other artists to do the same. Since 1999, they have been on a non-stop worldwide tour, selling out shows and headlining festivals around the globe.

This year Infected Mushroom is celebrating twenty five years as a powerhouse of electronic music, and they are honoring this milestone with a new album – aptly named ‘IM25.’

When the Covid-19 pandemic shuttered live shows in 2020, Duvdev and Erez took advantage of being off the road by cooking up yet another album of bangers. Infected has always been a master of collaborations, and ‘IM25’ is no exception with tracks featuring Bliss, Hope 6, Ninet Tayeb, Nick Hexum from 311, and more.

‘IM25’ is out now on Monstercat.
