Infected Mushroom - Killing Time

Israeli group Infected Mushroom have been recording for nearly 11 years now and are virtually unknown to the mainstream in the U.S. However, their latest single "Killing Time" could change all that. Featuring the vocals of Perry Farrell (of Jane's Addiction), the song is very catchy and treads that fine line between commercial and underground seamlessly. Perry's vocals are really great. The production is layered and has a raw, industrial quality to it. There are some remixes of this by Paul Oakenfold, Astrix, John '00' Fleming, and Infected Mushroom themselves. Paul Oakenfold strips away the industrial edge and gives it a lush dance/rock feel. Astrix's mix has a Deadmau5 or Morgan Page type of sound. John '00' Fleming's mix is in a beautiful chilled trance style. The Infected Trance mix by Infected Mushroom is a twisted adventure from start to finish. Hard and industrial one minute and chilled the next then a little hard rock and back. It may sound like an odd mix, but it somehow works. All the mixes on the package are great, but Paul Oakenfold and John '00' Fleming's are the standouts.
