Yahel – For The People / Sound & Melody – Transient (UK)
Release date : 28th January 2001
Yahel is one if Israel’s leading trance jocks, packing out parties with his trademark uplifting trance sound. Here Transient’s Classics pro-psychedelia imprint signs up a couple of of tunes that have helped Yahel make his name as a producer – and if you can imagine a sea of thousands of Israeli trancers going very very mental, you’re already halfway there. For The People is an anthem-in-waiting, which picks you up by the scruff of the neck and throws you to hands-in-the-air heaven. Sound & Melody is perhaps a little too melodic, but it can’t be denied its place – this is attention-grabbing, effective trance which might be a little predictable, but you can’t deny Yahel knows how to work crowd, and these tunes will do just that in a devastating style.
