Few karmic meetings in the studio resulted in Alpha Portal’s big bang birth. It set brothers-in-sound Avi Shmailov (aka Astrix) and Yoni Oshrat (aka Ace Ventura) on a promising path to become one of the scene’s most successful electronic music acts. They enhanced their music to the highest psychedelic reaches and through their amazing on-stage performances, Avi & Yoni will create unforgettable dance floor moments. This is the perfect union of musical minds with a mutual belief in border-free psy trance music.
Astrix has been one of the leading trance producers and DJs in the world for more than a decade, carrying his musical message of psychedelic emotional uplifting trance to every corner of the world, to the biggest urban clubs and far away beaches, huge festivals and underground events. Devoted to his art and a true perfectionist, Astrix is known for his massive hypnotic explosive sets on the dancefloor and for his precise detailed production in the studio. Both always laced with tons of feel and musicality. His music has been topping the charts and his albums are considered milestones.
Behind the Ace Ventura project is Yoni Oshrat – one of Israels biggest talents in electronic music, with a career on top of the scene, stretching for over a decade. Already from an early age Yoni was heavily influenced with music. He was born in a musical family with his father being a famous Israeli composer and song writer (for instance behind the Eurovision song “Halelujah”), and it was therefore no surprise that he went for a career in the sound-business; at first in the TV and movie-industry as a sound producer.
The new Psy-Progrressive outfit by no other than Moshe Keinan (a.k.a Xerox) and Hanan Gorenshtin (a.k.a Volcano). This dynamic dou has been active in the studio in the past six month writing & polishing their tracks & they are ready to blast the dance floors!
Xerox is Moshe Keinan. He is well known for his funky baselines and original grooves. His style of story telling and energy flow will always give you the “will to dance”, as many original ideas are always thrown into his tracks. Varying from the dark and heavy to the melodic and uplifting, each track is guaranteed to cause a major commotion on the dance floor. Huge, epic trance full of psychedelic power and sonic richness with lots of mutations that keep it captivating. Massive, pumping trance with the kind of energy level that only Xerox’s full-bodied trance music can deliver!
