Israel has had a huge effect and influence on the global trance scene with such pioneers like Astral Projection, Oforia, California Sunshine and Space Cat. Most of them continue to shape the scene till this day. The journey to India after finishing the army became an Israeli ritual that helped develop the scene and made this genre the most popular for young people in the country. The constant wars with the mandatory army (three years for men and two for women). Hot weather and hot Mediterranean temper combined with growing high tech industry spiced with a search of something different made Israel the perfect habitat for trance to have it’s first steps and then spread like Infected Mushrooms. Israel (Hebrew: יִשְׂרָאֵל; Arabic: إِسْرَائِيلُ) officially the State of Israel is a country in the Middle East located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan the east, and Egypt on the southwest, and contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Also adjacent are the West Bank to the east and Gaza Strip to the southwest. Israel is the world’s only predominantly Jewish state with a population of about 7.37 million people, of which approximately 5.57 million belong to the majority Jewish ethnoreligious group. The largest ethnic minority group is the segment denominated as Arab citizens of Israel, while minority religious groups include Muslims, Christians, Druze, Samaritans and others, most of which are found within the Arab segment.
