Given that nearly every track uses a slight variant of a throbbing bass-line which all but demands a strobe light, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Infected Mushroom only have one ridiculously long song. But it’s a great one–a keyboard couldn’t hope for a better filter and arpeggiator jockeys than these Israeli psychedelic trance-heads, whose ADHD concoctions are jam-packed with so many propulsive musical ideas that they can start to seem a little incoherent and/or incomplete.
