We are pleased to welcome Les Hemstock (Of Hemstock and Jennings trancemeisters fame) to Lost Language. Here he teams up with Minoo to present the Arabic / Trance hybrid soundclash "Redemption". Los Angeles based, Les Hemstock comes with an impressive dance music pedigree via his top 20 hits and collaborations with Paul Van Dyk. Minoo originally hails from Cairo and is now US based. He is a big fan of pianist / composer, Yanni.
The personnel and influences on this record all come together to for the cinematic track "Redemption". A track that is not only widescreen in scope & ambition but also driving and dancefloor friendly. Robert Vadney is first up on the remixes sounding like the lead track from a 1998 Perfecto Fluro compilation. Lead protagonist Minoo is next up with his Arabic tinged driving floor filler. One for the hands in the air.
Les pairs with Ric Scott next for their percussive "Nile" remix. Next up it's the "Score" version sounding like it is direct from the opening scene of the latest Hollywood block buster. Big screen all the way. The Shiva mix also heads right for the cinematic angle. To round things off we turn up the tempo and beat quotient once more for peak time outings from Hungary's Richard Sander and Columbia's Der Mystik (also known as Paulo Munoz).
