Hailing from a small, small town just outside of Vancouver, Canada, Max Graham isn't someone you would expect to find associated with the latest Transport (formerly "Tranceport") disc. After all, the first in this esteemed series was done by trance superstar Paul Oakenfold, and the other two by already rising stars Dave Ralph and Sandra Collins. However, after breaking into Oakenfold's center of influence with his slick and effective production work, featured to maximum effect on Oakenfold's Perfecto Presents Another World, Graham has been thrown a very big bone. He doesn't waste it; Transport 4 comes close to being a masterwork. It's trance without the progressive tag, served up straight, bold, and unadorned with neither Ibiza glowstick-wavers nor the sinister (though still-brilliant) edge that artists like John Digweed have increasingly brought to the genre.

The first disc, a studio mix, is a carefully planned slice of euphoria, with high points such as Blackwatch's mix of Greed Feat Lesley's "Strange World," "Sudden Journey" from Mad Dogs, and Graham's own "Tell You." Centering around a slippery, quick little piece of hyperactive keyboard melody and a dreamy vocal, "Tell You" is an impossible-to-resist, bravura piece of production work. The second disc is performed in the studio live and further illuminates Graham's heretofore unheralded DJ skills. One example? Mixing Timo Maas's amazing "No Trance" into Ayumi Hamasaki's "Vogue" cleverly keeps the same skittery vibe alive while allowing for a quick and necessary pause. Or what about his ultrasmooth blend of Hybrid and Underworld toward disc's end, which sets up "Kittens" for the maximum impact that track should always, but rarely does, have? It's not flashy, it's just smart, and it delivers the goods like you wouldn't believe. And that pretty much sums it up. --Matthew Cooke

2001 has been a glorious year for fans of what's come to be called "progressive," a kind of electronic hybrid between trance and progressive house, with an occasional added dose of techno. There have been outstanding mix cd's released by Britons John Digweed, Dave Seaman, and Nick Warren, and also a spate of superb mixes from lesser-known North American dj's including John Debo, Jerry Bonham, DJ Hardware, Liam Kennedy, Emit, Max English, and on and on.
With this veritable torrent of terrific music already crowding the music shop shelves, there was the danger that Canadian Max Graham's contribution, the fourth installment in the popular Tranceport series (now renamed "Transport") might be relegated to "me, too" status, just another good-but-not-memorable cd to place on the stack of discs next to one's player.
But noooooooo. . . This is instead one of the very finest releases of 2001, a brilliantly mixed package that stands up to repeated listenings and still provides new pleasures with each new exposure. It's not simply that Graham has selected fine compositions and remixes for his set; he's also sequenced and mixed them to veritable perfection. CD one begins slowly, including some alluring East Indian effects at the start of the first track, "2 Heavy" by Deep Funk Project. By the third track, things head toward the highly percussive/housey with Peace Division dub of Boy Versus Girl's "Boom," followed by Ben Pound's hypnotic "Turned."
Throughout the set, Graham knows just when to pick up the tempo and energy levels and then when to slow things down.

Max Graham is an amazing DJ, this double CD only reinforces my belief that more people should be made aware of this great untapped talent. Part of Max's career was spent spinning at the premier club in Ottawa "Atomic". Just earlier this year he returned and played an amazing set at Atomic, it was the first time I'd ever heard him spin live. This double CD set manages to take the energy he puts into his sets and lets you bring it home. Anyone who like trance or progressive should DEFINITELY pick up this CD, otherwise they'd be missing what could be the best release in this genre so far this year and perhaps longer. I would put the quality, track selection, and mixing right on par with any CD set ever released by Global Underground, Tranceport, ar any major label by that matter. Essential.

After the first three Tranc(s)eport releases, i was thoroughly anticipating this release from a then relatively unknown canadian Dj, max graham. You may hear people talking about good technique, and good mixing skills by people like Paul van Dyk or Dj Scot Project, but that is NOTHING compared to what Max graham has pulled off with this release. His mixing flows so flawlessly that even a trained ear has a hard time distinguishing the subtle changes in the music, and it will take you several listens to even begin understanding how he pulled most of those transitions off.
Naturally, with such great mixing come sacrifices in track selection, and even a prog fan will admit that "substructure" by elektronik is just a filler, for example. BUT. Max completely redeems himself as you get deeper into the mix... he really takes you on a musical journey that touches the core of your soul if you really have an appreciation for trance, and a good system to listen to it on. CD one has such awesome cuts as "2 Heavy" by Deep Funk Project, one of the best intro tunes i've ever heard.. and follows it up by such tremendous masterpeices as Yoogie van Bellen's remix of "Vernon's Wonderland" and his own "Tell You". The CD is also masterfully closed by a James Holden Production, which always have that "finishing touch" feel.
CD 2 is more geared toward track selection than mixing, but this still does not mean any rough spots.. the mixing is still liquid cool. This CD features one of my all time favorites: "Hi Life" by Hybrid. Wow, what an amazing track!! Other highlights include a brand new cut by the then also relatively unknown Ayumi Hamasaki, who is since a superstar, remixed by the likes of Armin van Buuren and Airwave.

Max Graham has been pegged as one of the Next Big Things for a while now, and a lot of people have liked what they've heard of his production and remix work on other compilations, but to be handed the fourth installment of the Transport series as a major-release rookie is still a pretty big deal. The folks at Kinetic obviously knew what they were doing, however, because he's created one of the best progressive mixes around.
His style is definitely the modern progressive house/trance that's all the rage, but he's also managed to carve out a unique sound niche of his own. In a world of darker and darker music (which I generally like), it's nice to find a guy who, while credible and hip, is not afraid of a melody. Some of these tracks are simply gorgeous, and he does a better job of balancing both the progressive and the music in "progressive music" than much of what we hear these days.
Reminiscent of his original songs and remixes, the musical noise of this album builds, breaks, and washes over you as more of a cohesive whole than as separate basslines, drums, and vocal samples. It's hard to describe, but Max Graham doesn't muddy the sound, he just integrates it a bit more. As is typical of both progressive trance and compilation albums (as opposed to live sets), the music tends to be more subtle than pounding and energetic, but there are still moments that'll get your feet tapping.
As far as track selection goes, I'd argue that this album is smarter and makes more sense than any of the Tranceports before it.
