Grab your passports kids, we’re venturing to the east for a taste of Israel.
Israel’s electronic music scene has endured something of a rollercoaster ride over the past three decades or so. Exhilarating progress across the Eighties and Nineties preceded schism and disruption – mapped to a wider, severely turbulent socio-political backdrop – in the early stages of the 21st century. But now, unequivocally, the scene is back to rude and booming health.
Fuelled by a love of psychedelic rock, it’s not hard to see patterns in genres inside the boarders of Israel.
There is a distinct sound you can hear coming from artists like Moscoman, Red Axes, Guy Gerber, my personal hero – Hakimonu + more of our emerging underground fave names.
Join me as I explore the sound of the underground in the Holy Lands of the Middle East.
