It's another bumper year for the Israeli trance contingent and Yahel is up at the front of the pack with one of the clearest insights into the psy-trance world.
"Aside from Israel, the whole of South America is going crazy for psy-trance at the moment," say the 31-year-old. "I've been playing Mexico, Argentina, Brazil… all over that area this year. The culture and the weather are very similar to Israel, so they are very receptive to it and are putting out some great music of their own".
"Asia's about ready for the psy invasion, I think. I was in China for the first time this year and the people there were really wonderful and extremely receptive to what I'm doing."
Aside from the DJing, Yahel has been pushing on with his FTP label, building up his DI:FM show, and last January released 'Superset 2', his seventh artist album.
"I'm finally back in Israel now and about to start work on my next album," he reveals.
