Eastern Spirit are Ran Salman & Nir Azilov. They started working together on 1997 dealing with House and Trance and djing in a few local clubs in the holy city playing House music and became a part of Radio Jerusalem in a few programs, playing sets once in a while.
Their music was played inightclubs by the leading djs in Israel. Ran was playing the guitar in his youth while Nir had been a piano man. They both were influenced by artists like Pink Floyd, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Miles Davis, Bob Marley and more.
By the time they were 15 they started working on Electronic music separately (with a few synthesizers & a sequencer) and met each other at Radio Jerusalem, they decided to unite. On 2001 they joined the Chillout scene, involving trance elements with jazz and ambient sounds and containing ethnic and oriental elements and percussions creating a wide angle soundscape which suits the term Eastern Spirit.
On October 2004 the label Aleph Zero Records released "Natural Born Chillers". a chillout compilation. and the track "Under Water" was chosen to end the compilation and that was thier officaly first release. On march 2006 they released 2 tracks on Freeze Magazine cd, that was mixed by Kukan Dub Lagan,later on they signed a few tracks to compliations, one of them is a remix to Irina Mikhaliova.
