Behind the Ace Ventura project is Yoni Oshrat - one of Israels biggest talents in electronic music, with a career on top of the scene, stretching for over a decade. Already from an early age Yoni was heavily influenced with music.
He was born in a musical family with his father being a famous Israeli composer and song writer (for instance behind the Eurovision song "Halelujah"), and it was there
fore no surprise that he went for a career in the sound-business; at first in the TV and movie-industry as a sound producer.
After several years of intense touring, playing at some of the biggest parties and festivals worldwide, Yoni's taste moved more and more towards the slower, groovier side of music though, and from 2006 he took the decision to leave the Psysex project and form the two soloprojects SCHATSI and ACE VENTURA. With Schatsi he was quickly featured on labels like Hadshot and Mylo's Breastfed Recordings, and top DJ's like John Digweed played some of his material on numerous occasions. More attention was put into the Ace Ventura project though, and using a fusion of the hard, pumping dancefloor-oriented style from Psysex and the deeper, groovier influences of progressive trance, the Ace Ventura project became a big success, and in a matter of just a few releases, such as the now classic debut "Cardiac Arrest", he was already considered among the top producers on the progressive trance scene.
Despite playing all around the globe, at major events from Boom in Portugal, XXXPerience, Tribe and Universo Paralello in Brazil, Solstice in Japan, Glade in the UK ,Ozora in Hungary to Indian Spirit, Tshitraka, Antaris and Full Moon in Germany, Yoni isn't resting on the laurels – Working on other projects such as EASY RIDERS – together with fellow friend and partner Roy Tilbor (aka Rocky) – as well as on the newborn project ZENTURA, together with Wouter Thomassesn (aka Zen Mechanics) and last but not least, on the longtime collaboration LIQUID ACE, together with Nicola Capobianco (aka Liquid soul).
Besides producing tracks for various labels, Yoni complied a few successfull compilations, namely the 'New order' series for HOMmega records, which was the first progressive release of the label, as well as 'Digital beings' for Echoes records. Recently he compiled the double CD 'Dance Computer' for Iboga records, and now the 3rd chapter of the 'New order' series is ready to be unleashed as well. These days, final work is underway on the 2nd Ace Ventura album – 'Paradise engineering' – to be released by the end of the year on Iboga records.
