He is a veteran of the psytrance scene and is considered a part of the wave of inspired Israeli electronic music acts to make it big in the international electronic music scene. He has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the industry including his Israeli peers Infected Mushroom in the track Astrix on Mushrooms.

He is well received internationally for his “Full on” Psytrance style which combines strong bass lines with progressive, uplifting beats that are perfect for Outdoor/Big stadium trance and saw him reach #18 on DJ Mags top 100 DJs list in 2007. He has been busy touring and working at his long-awaited new album “he.Art” that is slated for release towards late 2015. He is looking at bringing his wealth of new experiences on the decks to the new album and after his hit album “Red means distortion” for HOMmega this one promises to be a masterpiece. It’s been a long wait but we could catch a glimpse of what he has up his sleeve for the new album at his gig in Gurgaon as he finally comes back to the land where Goa trance originated.

Astrix holds India close to his heart and spoke out about his love for the country in his 2008 interview with Rolling Stone magazine where he quoted, “It’s a kind of closure. I had wanted to return to India for a long time and now that it is planned, there’s no one happier than me. There is a certain feeling in the trance world that psychedelic trance is going back to its roots, to its old school, only now it has better production values. And with the vast knowledge of artists concerning the influences of the new high-tech elements into the old Goa vibe I expect my visit to India will be a ‘return to the source’ experience.” This homecoming promises to be a gift to psytrance fans all over India.
