HOMmega celebrating 20 years with massive compilation
HOMmega Productions is one of the cornerstones of the Psytrance culture. The label that started as a private unrealistic passion of three young man that were swept over by this new amazing fresh music that they discovered have turned into one of the most influential bodies of this culture. Discovering and releasing music by names such as Astrix, Infected Mushroom, Xerox, Juno Reactor, PsySex, Domestic, Pixel, Sub6, Illumination, Cosma, Space Cat, Freedom Fighters, Animato, On3 and so many others, HOMmega helped shape what is Psytrance today.

From the three young man that started the journey: Eyal Yankovich, Moshe Keinan (Xerox) and Meir Cohen, it is Eyal who stayed at the helm and have been navigating the ship on his own for quite a long time now.

HOMmega had a leading part in many events and musical journeys that shaped Psytrance to what it is today. From the massive “Full On” compilation series; Through the more experimental ISRaliens compilations series; By discovering and pushing key artists and groups such as Astrix, Infected Mushroom, Xerox, PsySex, Illumination, Cosma, and many others; By experimenting and giving space to different music, as with their classic chillout compilation series “Life is…” (with the now defunct BNE); And the list goes on… HOMmega has also played an important part in bringing Psytrance to new territories around the world along its 20 years of existence.

We are super curious for those new remixes, and to hear the remastered versions, as we have been dancing to this music and it has been part of the soundtrack of our parties for a very long time – it’s all coming out in less than a week on May 5th.
