MFG – 10 Essential Tracks
MFG are Aharon Segal (born 1970) and Guy Zukrel (born 1970). Aharon learned to play the organ when he was a kid and was playing keyboards ever since. He also wrote for other instruments as well, though he didn’t play them. Guy has a similar background, he took organ lessons when he was 6 years old for 2 years, until he discovered the world of synth & midi.
In 1995 they decided to write a real electro-industrial album together under the name Message From God.
They met in high school, through a mutual friend who knew of their interest in music, and got them together. They didn’t really separate since then. They grew listening to Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Kraftwerk & The Human League, and later Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Front 242, Klinik and a lot of others.
In 1995 they decided to write a real electro-industrial, with Goa Trance elements album together under the name Message From God. They wrote a few tracks till a friend that was into trance introduced them to a couple of tracks by The Infinity Project (TIP). They were amazed by the combination of sophisticated electronic music and melodies, and decided to write a couple of tracks and see what happens. It didn’t take long till they got to Oren Kristal at Phonokol. He introduced them to Let There Be Light by Astral Projection, and they fell in love with this track and with Astral’s sound. The outcome was Desert Sun. Oren signed them for 3 albums immediately after he heard that one.
Since then they released 6 albums in total and more are in the way. Undeniably, MFG is one of those pillar projects that helped shape the Goa Trance scene.
