You have released so many songs since 1997. How has technology and changing sounds influenced your music?Technology has made making music a whole lot easier. These days, there are children popping out of their mothers’ wombs with computers. It is also evident in the quality of our music. You can see a stark evolution over the last 15 years.
How has your sound matured over the years?When we first started Infected Mushroom, the project was almost exclusively psychedelic trance — quick, aggressive beats. Over the years, our style has evolved to incorporate elements of rock, electro, and now even dubstep, which is stuff you wouldn’t have heard on The Gathering (1999, first album), for example.
You performed in India at Sunburn last year. What are you looking forward to this time?Sunburn was great. This year, we are looking forward to visiting some big cities. It has been a while since I had a good shave in Mumbai. A shave and some curry will do me right.
India seems to be the new destination for many EDM acts these days.
You are completely on point about that, as evidenced by the Swedish House Mafia headlining Sunburn this year. The scene has changed. Now you have sponsors pushing the boundaries of events and talent, which is a great thing, as it widens the possibilities — something I wouldn’t have been able to imagine all those years ago when I lived in Goa.
