Style: Psy-Trance
Total Tracks: 01

Astrix (Avi Shmailov) is a Psychedelic Trance DJ and producer specialising in the sub-genre of Full On Psychedelic Trance. He was born in Russia in 1981 and grew up in Tel Aviv, Israel. He began recording music under the name Astrix (sometimes misconcieved to be taken from the "Asterix" comic books. An interview on UK clubbing website Harderfaster revealed the name was chosen for simply sounding good, and not directly influenced by anything in particular) in 1997 and has used the name since.

In 2006 Astrix reached #41 (+34 raise) in DJ Mag's "Top 100 DJ's" yearly rank along with raise of several other Israeli musicians (the highest being Infected Mushroom ranked #12) marking significant worldwide popularisation of Israeli electronic music scene.

In 2007 Astrix reached to #18

Astrix's music is known for his solid, driving basslines and ascending melodies. It is very uplifting and, as far as psychedelic trance goes, fairly "hard" and is also usually played during sunrise and the morning at outdoor trance parties. Many would consider his style to be a crossover between "full-on" and the "clubbier" end of Trance, exemplfied by his Psychedelic Academy Mix
