Maor Levi is an Israeli musician. The Breakout Artist of 2005 was ilan Bluestone's mentor. In episodes of his podcast 'MAOR BASS', he pronounces his name as 'MÖ-er LEH-vee'. After branching off from psytrance to play the glittery, uplifting style of trance that maintains a steady presence on both iTunes & Beatport charts alike, Levi took a three-year break from the EDM community to serve in the Israeli military as per the laws of his homeland.Also speaking of Israel, you were required to spend three years in the Israeli Military – the most active military force in the world. I tend not to talk about the military ’cause I’m not allowed. I try not to mix it in my interviews, but whatever happened happened. I had a great time in the army & that’s all I can say.
Well you’ve mentioned before that some of the best stuff you came up with that got you really recognized was during difficult times. Would that be during that period?
Well the Middle Eastern conflict is – like, if you think about the positive side of it it’s inspiring. Y’know like we have to stay strong, & stay stable & sane. But I think that politics in the EDM scene is not a good thing. I get people talking about politics every time they see me, & I tend to avoid it.
