When your heart is in the right place, rhythm shall follow. This path is a journey of discovering your inner groove. Reshef Harari from Israel, began this trip when he was 15. Fascinated with the experimentation of sounds, Reshef started to collect vinyl and practiced mixing records all day, encapsulated by the groove and curious to know where it could take him. At 17 Reshef was landing regular gigs at parties, where he learnt to tune into the crowd and create an experience for everybody on the dancefloor.
Drawing inspiration from some of the biggest names in minimal trance such as, XV Kilist, Bitmonks and Paste, Rashef began to work on his deep crunchy tone and thoughtful musicality which is still prevalent in his music today. Landing a job with a sound design company, he learnt the processes involved in compressing and EQing using analogue equipment. During this time Rashef was introduced to the realm of psytrance by his older brother and Israeli psytrance pioneer Asher Haviv, from that moment he was compelled to journey as deep into this rabbit hole as possible. In 2003 Domo records owner Avi Nini, was impressed by the level of technical ability Rashef displayed behind the decks which quickly lead to him becoming a label DJ. Later that year Rashef teamed up with Adi Ashkenazi forming the massively popular duo “Quantize”. Releasing music on various labels until the 2009 release of their debut album “Time” on Iboga Records. This was followed by a swarm of “single” releases, until the duo parted ways in 2010 focussing on their solo projects.
It was then time to wear the captain’s hat. Keeping his close ties with Iboga, Reshef started to remix, displaying his interpretation of older tunes, while at the same time collaborating with producers who he had been inspired by in the past. Popularity sparked with his debut album “Human Design”, released in 2011, which took him on an expedition across the world for the next 3 years. This album was a mile stone in his career, where he collaborated with Ace Ventura, Liquid Soul, Perfect Stranger, Loud, Tetrameth Freedom Fighters and ill.Gates, while giving each track unique sound design, texture and colour.
Travelling across the world and performing at festivals expanded his artistic horizons, and filled his mind, body and soul with new energy sources. While on the road he was working for 2 years on a double remix album “Akashic Library”, hand picking his idea of the finest most unique pieces of music. At the moment he is collecting material for a new album, but the best way to understand the essence of the music is to tune into the frequency and feel the pulse of the Hook in what will be his finest performance at the Colour of Sound – psychedelic experience.
