Well, this isn't really crossing trance areas too much, but it is a good chill CD mostly, compiled nicely from licensed tracks, grazing different ambient fields, more in the loungy and mainstream ones. BTW, for the non-Israelis, Shuki Zikri is not a DJ but a hair stylist, Israel's most famous one (hell, even I heard of him). I dunno what brought him to invest in music, but it's a nice move, may more come. A shame he didn't choose to promote some more local talents that make some great music that can take part here without hurting the high standards. As for the music, it goes through different styles: touching ethnic realms (African, Indian & Spanish), dub, triphop, acid jazz, psychedelic ambient, a bit of everything, and mostly very good bits. Some tracks I find a bit too soft, sliding to the elevator music section, but all and all this is mostly great music, well chosen and flowing excellently. There are some real gems you must have here as well. Two down points are that one of the best tracks here, the Private Taste remix, somehow doesn't fit in, and that the bonus track is not really a bonus, it's not produced well enough and it's totally out of sync with the musical line. At least it's the last one.

Bottom Line: Excellent diverse musical journey for the more freestyle relaxed moments of your day- good for siesta! Favorites: 3(!), 4(!!!), 6(!), 7, 8-10, 11-12(!), 13.

probably he made this comp so ACUM won't demand royalties from tracks he plays at his hairdresser shop [and if someone read that article about ACUM in marriv he know exacly what i mean!]           u can find "Anything U Want" using the search...

Actually it's Musica Plus who compiled the CD, one Ronen Guttman (who also takes credit for mixing it on the cover, though this isn't mixed). Phonokol released it, and Shuki Zikri probably just put the money and of course the hair styling on the cover (check Isratrance).
