SONG OF THE DAY: Yinon Yahel ft Alon Sharr – “Reach Out”
Looking back at 2012, one of the best trends in club music has been the rise of male vocalists. Major hits featuring Matthew Koma (“Spectrum” and “Years) and John Martin (“Don’t You Worry Child”) led the way. Teaming with producer Yinon Yahel (Offer Nissim, Maya Simontov, Meital), Israeli singer Alon Sharr is another one to watch. His raw vocal performance on “Reach Out” elevates the progressive big room track to an emotional anthem. The universal message of questioning the start of a love relationship can be embraced by anyone. DJs will definitely gravitate towards the track as an opening track (with lyrics like “come down on take me, reach out and touch me”) or as a great bridge between progressive house and harder electro tracks. Either way, “Reach Out” sounds like it might be the first big male vocal anthem of 2013.
