Ace Ventura – 10 Essential Tracks
Behind the project Ace Ventura is Yoni Oshrat, an Israeli artist coming from a talented musical family. His father being a famous Israeli composer and songwriter (for example the Eurovision winning song “Hallelujah”), unsurprisingly Yoni started to work in the sound industry, first in the television and then in the movie industry as a sound producer.

After discovering the emerging trance-scene in the mid 90’s, he started DJing and teamed up with his friend DJ Goblin to form the psychedelic trance project Children of the Doc, which later became PsySex. Together they released 3 highly successful full length albums on HOMmega Productions, and played a big part in establishing Israel as one of the most important trance countries of the world. After several years of intense touring, playing at some of the biggest parties and festivals worldwide, Yoni’s taste shifted towards the slower, groovier side of music, and in 2006 he moved on to form the two solo projects Schatsi (an Electro project) and Ace Ventura. Using a fusion of the hard, pumping dancefloor-oriented elements from the PsySex sound, with the deeper & groovier influences of progressive trance, the Ace Ventura project quickly became very popular.

After just a few releases (for example the classic track “Cardiac Arrest”) he was already considered among the ambassadors of the progressive trance scene. In 2007, he released his debut solo album on Iboga Records,”Rebirth”. Undoubtedly considered as one of the biggest releases of the year, it resulted in Ace Ventura winning the Psytrance category at the Beatport Music Awards in 2008. About a year later the album was followed by a 2CD remix album “Re:Boot” with remixes by leading artists in various genres, which together with other EPs and singles, also resulted in Ace Ventura winning once more the Psytrance category at the Beatport Music Awards in 2009, for the second year in a row. During the following years, Yoni released numerous single tracks, EP’s (including great collaborations with many artists), on various labels such as Plusquam Records, Echoes Records and of course Iboga Records. It was not until 2015 that the 2nd full length Ace Ventura album was released, “Paradise Engineering”, which was a huge success and resulted in a massive worldwide tour afterwards.
Yoni has been playing in numerous events and festivals all around the globe, among them : Boom, Ozora, Antaris, Psy-Fi, Summer Never Ends, Symbiosis Gathering, Dreamstate, XXXPerience & Solstice in Japan to name a few. Recently, he has revived his solo Schatsi project, spreading dubby beats as “Schatsi In Dub”. Additionally, he’s been involved in 4 other collaborative projects : Alpha Portal (together with Astrix); Easy Riders (together with Rocky Tilbor); Zentura (together with Zen Mechanics). Last but not least, Liquid Ace (together with Liquid Soul).
Today, Ace Ventura is considered by many as one of the leading and busiest DJs & artists on the progressive and Psytrance scene.
