Chakra is Rami Shapira. Few people can claim to be at the pinnacle of their career for such as sustained period. Rami started working with alternative electronic music at the age of 13! He soon established himself as one of the true pioneers of the Israeli electronic dance scene with his productions under his Witchcraft project. Then in 1996, under the name of Chakra, Rami teamed up with Edi Mis to release the award winning ‘The Promised Land’ album. This platinum selling album has become one of today’s true classic Trance albums; an accolade Rami is truly honored by.
Rami’s production success resulted in him performing live sets at almost every corner of the world, playing along side such artist as: Juno Reactor, Underworld, Front 242, Paul Oakenfold, at all major festivals and clubs. High profile radio and TV appearances on such stations as MTV only added fuel to his growing success.
Chakra’s music was remixed by artists like Armin van Buuren, Jon The Dentist ,Quirk, The Visitors just to name a few. It was while traveling that Rami found a love for Japan where he settled to concentrate on running his own record label, Optimus records. Still today one of Trance music’s most prestigious labels
