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 2015 album “Converting Vegetarians II”, Erez and Duvdev have since delivered the “Return to the Sauce” album and “IM21, Pt. 1 Remixes." 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.
DJ Icon
Without doubt, DJ ICON has become an iconic figure in the U.S. dance music industry and beyond. With a career spanning almost two decades, she has captivated audiences the world over with her signature bass-heavy cross-genre Bass Music sound; magnetic stage presence, skillful DJ mixes and productions. It’s no wonder why she’s been dubbed one of the leading ladies of this domain.

Starting in 1996 at age 16, ICON diligently rose through the ranks of the San Francisco underground at a time when female DJs and promoters were few. In just a few years, her skills and growing reputation had already landed her numerous residencies in San Francisco, as well as a steady flow of stateside and international bookings. ICON has also gained success in radio and television in addition to rocking dancefloors. Among her accolades are releases on well-known labels, features in two TV series, a spot in Shejay’s “Top 100 Female DJs”, being voted one of San Francisco’s best in the Nitevibe “Top 10 DJ Dreamteam”, scoring a coveted sponsorship from Pioneer Pro DJ and building a huge fanbase on her social media pages and Soundcloud.

ICON has toured the world performing throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Europe and Asia at world renowned clubs such as 1015 Folsom and Ruby Skye in San Francisco, Limelight in NYC, Fabric and Matter in London, and Avalon in LA; as well as world-class music festivals such as Coachella Music Festival, Ultra Music Festival, Burning Man and Fuel Festival in Singapore. ICON has shared stages with top tier artists such as Underworld, The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, Ladytron, Paul Oakenfold, Adam Freeland, Armand Van Helden, Deekline & Wizard, The Stanton Warriors, The Freestylers, Evil Nine, Elite Force, Uberzone, Bassbin Twins, DJ Icey, DJ Rap and many more.

Aside from being busy behind the decks, ICON has also been busy behind the scenes promoting events in San Francisco and NYC over the years. She has also coproduced many events with former affiliations Reverb Records, Femme DJs and Sister SF, the first ever female DJ collective of which she was an integral member. Currently she is a core member of Opulent Temple, a predominant DJ collective that is responsible for producing a large scale sound camp annually at Burning Man Arts and Music Festival, as well as year-round events that are staples in the San Francisco nightlife.

ICON has had extensive history on the radio waves with past residencies and guest spots on respected dance music programs such as Thump Funk and Boombox Mix Sessions on SiriusXM, Liquid Todd’s Solid State on K-ROCK in NYC (Infinity Broadcasting); IBreaks and NuBreaks in London, Radio Record in Russia; and a plethora of dance music radio shows in her hometown, including House Nation on Wild 94.9 FM, Subsonic on Live 105, Zendada on Energy 92.7, and Future Breaks on KUSF. She has also made her way onto the small screen: In 2001, she was featured as one of twelve up-and-coming American DJs in “Disc Jockey,” a 12-part documentary series that aired on Showtime™, alongside artists such as Reid Speed, DJ Craze, the late Disco D, Stareyes and more. In 2004, she was the DJ on the internationally syndicated MTV™ series “The Wade Robson Project,” a dance competition hosted by the self-titled super choreographer.

Lastly, ICON’s production endeavors have proven to be as exciting as her DJ career. Her releases on Illeven Eleven Records: “Welcome To My Dancefloor” with Dustin Hulton featuring Nikki Carabello and “Wha?” a collaboration with Bay Area producer Ground_Control had steller reviews and support by leading artists in the industry. “Dancefloor” charted at #8 and #22 on the Beatport Breakbeat and Electro charts with a great review in Mixmag. The KMFX remix of “Wha?” charted at #12 on the Beatport Breakbeat chart. ICON & GC have also done remixes of “Reload” for Deekline and Ed Solo feat. Million Dan on Rat Records and “Draggin” for Enough Weapons on Vibrance Recordings.

So what’s next for this powerhouse bass princess? More mixes, productions and remixes are in the works, as she continues to make her mark in the worldwide dance music industry. And if the last nineteen years have proven anything, the future will continue to bring big things from this driven and versatile artist.
