While Tel Aviv has emerged as a small empire in the international electronic music world, fielding renowned acts such as Infected Mushroom and Guy Gerber, the local scene had always suffered from a lack of legitimate venue options to house its talent. Yaron Trax, DJ and nightlife entrepreneur, sought to break with the status quo, founding a club that not only met global standards, but also immediately became a favorite venue for DJs and fans alike. Unfortunately, problems with city hall ended the dream prematurely. Yet within two years Trax has resurrected the club once more, with its trademark pristine sound-system now gracing an even larger space.
Named The Block, the venue evokes the underground vibration of Electronic music’s more clandestine days, when parties were located in warehouses, garages, and every other expanse of the urban jungle left neglected by night. The current incarnation of the club is in the main Bus terminal, a monolithic building otherwise avoided by most locals at any cost.
As always, Trax draws an elite roster of world-renowned DJs and live acts that would stand up to any major venue in Europe. Beyond the world famous sound system and a mixer that has become legend, the never-tiring crowd of Block faithful leaves every DJ waiting for their next visit to the White City.
