Let The Joy Rise exudes happiness and togetherness and was a beautiful example of the signature sound in its day. If you want to feel good, listen to this, it’s the kind of positive sound that gave so many people joy and continues to do so to this day. On the flip Midnight In Beijing is one of those tracks that keeps you elevated making it the perfect go to track to keep the party rocking.
After a string of hits under various guises alongside many different producers, Jurgen Leyers embarked upon a solo effort that he remains committed to. In 2001 he released the fantastic Ulan Bator to a great reception, many more followed and then in 2007 he decided to compile all his solo tracks into one location, something his fans and collectors were delighted with. Rendez Vous is the result and would become his first album. The album features all his works which includes unreleased gems as well as a bonus track from Fire & Ice.
DJ Fire’s Summermorning epitomises the more uplifting side of progressive trance with wonderfully textured sounds combing beautifully into a solid arrangement. On the B-side of the original 12″ we got the much edgier Himalaya with its tougher beats and darker tones. Also in 2005 this one got a reissue on MP3 with 2 extra tracks thrown in – Flying and Medieval’
In 2007 we got this tasty treat from Jurgen – The Closest Thing To Heaven delivered a beautifully rich melodic journey that captured the hearts of many with its uplifting qualities. A perfect example of how trance is made from the heart, a very inspiring slice. The main track here was the Trance mix with the Electrance mix on the flip.
DJ Fire’s 2009 progressive trance cut – Transatlantic brought an international flavour to his progressive sound. A wonderful piece with a fresh sound that builds and builds into an almost euphoric climax filled with big heavy synth stabs and accompanying bass. Antidote provided the remix for this one with Laurent and Marnik delivering yet another blistering electrified slice.
