What is it about Canadians and our Tim Hortons? Despite posting a picture on Twitter of his Ferarri 458 Italia with a cover over it, ready to be retired for the winter on Twitter, Deadmau5 brought it out again for a coffee run with Amit “Duvdev” Duvdevani of Infected Mushroom. Over the 45 minute drive across Toronto, the two talk about Tim Hortons’ donuts (speaking from a lot of personal experience), Infected Mushroom’s live stage setup, a theft at the Roseland Ballroom, and a few of their favorite venues. Joel also manages to squeeze in a few quick details about his upcoming album.Posted by
Back in October, a Twitter thread nearly revealed one of the records Zedd had produced for Lady Gaga. Calvin told Gaga he was excited to hear the her work with Zedd, and following a shout out from the producer himself, Gaga responded; “Were all good [Zedd] miss you buddy been listening to **rq* all day.” The five-letter word could only be assumed as a track title with three hidden characters, but it seems to finally have been revealed as a demo from Lady Gaga’s forthcoming ARTPOP has leaked. The track is dubbed “Burqa,” revealing October’s cryptic tweet. The leaked tune reveals Zedd sticking to his artistry for Gaga’s newest work, a polished sound that would fit in with Clarity. But that’s only the half of it, literally….
While the demo is also rumored to be a duel record with a two-part title, it’s believed that Infected Mushroom are responsible for the second half known as “Aura.” Their contribution had been originally posted to SoundCloud one year ago without a name and could be found here.Posted by
After slaying the Ultra Live Stage, flying to Israel for a quick Tel Aviv show and returning home to prepare for Coachella, Infected Mushroom have taken a moment off from touring to release a remix package for Army Of Mushrooms’ “Never Mind.” Out on Dim Mak, the package features a slowed down gritty rework from Sweden’s Liquid Stranger and an infectiously dubby take from Minnesota-based Nostalgia. Both mixes keep the glitchy tone work of the original but leave their own distinct mark, creating a package that shares a concept but executes it in gloriously different ways.

Israeli psytrance phenoms, Infected Mushroom are back this week with Friends On Mushrooms Vol. 1, a four track EP released through Dim Mak. Though their sound has evolved from hardcore to psytrance to dubstep and hit several genres in between, Duvdev and Erez prove they’re still fully capable of infecting fans with this latest release.
The duo teamed up with Hope 6 on opening track “Where Do I Belong,” a dubby reggae tune sounding nothing like moombahton but somehow more relevant. “Bass Nipple” hits next and sounds exactly like what you’d expect from an electro house Infected track; grimy, melodic, and mind-melting. Their collaboration with Astrix, “Astrix on Mushrooms,” is as close to classic psy-trance as the evolved band is likely to get and “Mambacore” channels the beloved glitch-hop elements of Army of Mushrooms into a charmingly psychedelic trip through hi hats snares and off tempo kicks.
Though Infected Mushroom is continuously experimenting with genres, this latest EP proves that the Infected skill will never change.
