LOUD[edit]

  • Reiter's leading project is the Electronic music band LOUD, together with Record Producer & Sound Engineer Kobi Toledano they have been producing original electronic music since 2006, blending old school roots with cutting-edge fresh new psychedelic sounds.[10][11] They currently have 4 studio albums together and they are working on the 5th studio album which is going to be released in Nano Records.[12]

Collaboration with A. Balter[edit]

  • This collaboration between Reiter and A. Balter happened in a land where Psy-trance reigns supreme and at a timing which the Psychedelic scene was boiling hot. They created something different, something unique with different texture, bringing the Techno scene and the Minimal music to the Israeli consciousness. Both have managed to produce together super fresh sounds that build on fine tune elements from an array of difference genres. They signed almost immediately in the known label Digital Structures and released together massive hits that landed directly on the dance-floors all around the globe.[13]

Unoccupied[edit]

  • Reiter had a recording studio near his home town where he was producing his own music, Reiter had so share his studio time and it was shared with Nadav Katz which is a very talented Audio mastering and Audio engineer which was a part of mixing first 3 albums by LOUD. It was just a matter of time until both of them will produce together and then Unoccupied formed and they released Everyday Life album. Unoccupied paints a vivid picture of daily reality and combines the electronic and the acoustic, downtempo electronica and soft rock, ambient pop and alternative music, and is called "captivating music for everyday life".[14]
