Racing Beat – Psytrance, Rock’n’Roll & more
Racing Beat is an electronic music project which combines live instruments from the worlds of hard rock, jazz, classical music and trance. We love here at Trancenral people trying to do things out of the box (We are talking about psychedelic music, right?) and we recommend you check these guys out.
Racing Beat is a rock trance musical group that was formed in 2012 by Shiko Berkovich (Electric Guitar) and Eitan Rosental (Saxophone). During their studies of musical production at MUZIK College, the two started discovering a connection that led to many diverse collaborations. These collaborations led them to find their strong common ground, which they both loved each in his own way – trance music.
THE ALBUM WAS INSPIRED FROM MANY ANCIENT TRIBAL CULTURES AND ALSO FROM THE DIGITAL WORLD THAT ALLOWS A MUSICAL JOURNEY IN REAL TIME. MAIN MUSICAL INFLUENCES FOR THIS ALBUM CAME FROM FOLK MUSIC, ROCK AND PROGRESSIVE TRANCE.
Eitan and Shiko’s musical background was different and varied between Classical music, Metal and Rock & Roll but both love Psychedelic music.
In September 2012, Racing Beat released their debut EP “Forest of fortune”. The EP was influenced from their love to the worlds of “film noir” and Metal music and from their journey to find a joint musical language.
Racing Beat have just released their debut album “Lost in time”. The album was inspired from many ancient tribal cultures and also from the digital world that allows a musical journey in real time. Main musical influences for this album came from Folk music, Rock and Progressive trance. Guest musicians in the album: Daniel Gabriel Shweitzer (Cümbüş and Cümbüş Saz) and Yael Oriyaev (Vocals).
