So there's house for dancing and chillout for relaxing, but what if you want to unwind but not end up horizontal dreaming of the Café Del Mar? Enter Jakatta with his debut album Visions: not upfront enough to drag you onto the dance floor but certainly not drowned in contrived chillout synths and meandering downbeats. Having been DJing and making thumping music for many years under various guises, Joey Negro aka Raven Maize aka Dave Lee aka Jakatta has toned it all down and gone cinematic on us. His first hit under this moniker was the American Beauty sampling "American Dream", up-tempo and uplifting yet more ethereal than your average house tune. Much of Visions is made in a similar way, taking a good idea and running with it although depending on moods and personal taste, this can get a bit samey and start to sound like the same song repeated over and over again. The standout has to be the collaboration with Seal on "My Vision", same as the rest; nice beat, hook, bass etc but the vocal lifts it far beyond the rest of the album. --Georgina Collins

“It Will Be” reminds me off a song off The New Deal’s self-titled album, “Exciting New Directions” because it has a female vocal sample that seems to build up to something. While in that song it tends to lead into a jam session, in this song, the melody weaves tighter and expands as the ‘time’ passes in the song. Its got a great groove and laidback feel.
“My Vision” starts off with a spine tingling female vocal woven into a sample from the Shawshank Redemption soundtrack, and as she says, “wonderful things are about to happen”; then the beat comes in, perfectly joined with the rest of the tune. Unexpectedly, its Seal’s voice that comes on, and you can already feel the energy from his first words, as songs like “Crazy” come back to mind. This is definitely my favorite song on the album.
“Ever So Lonely” has been featured on other compilations like ‘The Karma Collection” so its not a new tune. Sheila Chandra provides the mystical vocals on this track. Maybe I’m more used to a single version, because this one feels a little too long. But like other tracks to follow, Dave Lee does not force Jakatta into any fixed sound, so this shows off some of his variety.
“Feeling Blue” has a simple piano melody and a relaxed gentle feel. There is a female vocal in it, but the words sound wispy and breathless. I can’t imagine it not being featured on any other chillout albums in the near future.
“I Don’t Know” featuring Ty, has a hip-hop sound above another melodic sweeping sound and the snare hits. There is the sound of a muted trumpet as well, giving this song a great variety. It is another head bopping tune.

I had barely heard of Jaktaa when this album was given to me as a gift, but now I doubt I could live without it. Every song has a different character, and I am completely unable to say which is my favourite, unless you take 'Strung out' which is a sort of megamix of the whole album. The music is sophisticated, and can be either devastating or heart-warming, depending on which one you are listening to, and what mood you are in at the time.
I would definitely give this album the best rating possible.

Last week, I browsed the web for a new CD. Dunno why, just decided I wanted another to add to my collection. I almost gave up after stumbling across Jakatta's "Visions." After being massively impressed by the mega-hit "American Beauty," I bought it on a huge whim!
And, boys and girls, I wasn't disapointed.
This is one of the most magical and uplifting albums produced by a DJ this year. As each track floats into the next, the album itself acts out a film-score, taking us on a journey through a storyline conveyed by the imagination of each set-piece - wether it be the haunting "My Vision," (with guest vocals from Seal), the Indian-inspired "So Lonely" or the smooth tones of Beth Hirsch on "One Fine Day."
The flagship track, is by far, "American Dream," with its sample - taken from the Sam Mendes film "American Beauty" - popping up alll over the album. However, this just shows how crucial the world of film is to Dave Lee - or Jakatta as he now like to be know! - exploring new themes, yet returning to the ones we want to hear over and over again.
This album is truly different, with moods to reflect the pre-nightclub teenager and the relaxing couple by the fire. Not a classic, but a must-buy for Winter 2002.

Jakatta's debut album certainly doesn't disappoint - there are some excellent tracks on here. It's hard to define Jakatta's style; some would call it easy listening with relaxed, memorable phrases, whereas others would say it borders on house. Either way, his style is extremely unique, characterised by moving melodies and stirring use of the piano. It's a great album to chill out to, but does have some rousing numbers that make you want to get up and dance!
My personal favourites include the tracks 'American Dream', which has been a popular number in clubs for the last 2 years; the outstanding 'My Vision' which features the welcome return of Seal, 'Ever so Lonely' - although be warned - it is much slower than the single release; and 'The Other World' which samples a track from the Bond film 'Diamonds are Forever'.
Basically, all the songs on the album are good - some are really haunting and evocative. In a nutshell, it's an excellent buy - plenty of memorable melodies with catchy lyrics and an amazing ethereal sound. I look forward to Jakatta's next work.

I have long awaited this album on the basis of the first two singles So Lonely and American Dream. The defining moment for me was acheived with securing Seal on the recent single My Vision (which I feel is his best work since his first album).
All tracks are lush and varied, with that 'film soundtrack' quality. Although there is heavy sampling of works from other film soundtracks including American Beauty and Betty Blue, they are so gorgeous and inventive that they are world's away from the original works.
This is somewhere between Moon Safari and Simple Things. Perfect for those who were waiting for Air to revert back to their earlier style (like me!)
