Undoubtedly the best ambassadors for the progressive scene in Israel for over a decade.
The duo consists of Lior Maimon and Shay Tiab, and over the years they have been consistently been on top of the game, from the dark tech and psychedelic trance inspired sounds on their first album 'Dejavoodoo' in 2002, to the mellower, melodic progressive trance sound on 'Free Fall' and their more progressive house and tech house inspired sound in recent years.
Lish's debut album "Dejavoodoo" was released on February 2002 in U.S.T.A - under ground sound of Tel Aviv (a.k.a. Krembo records). The reviews of the album were: "they successfully combine European sound, tolerance and Israeli sweeping energies with blend of progressive trance and tech trance at its best quality". The impact of the album dragged world wide recognition and a huge crowd of fans and mark them as pioneers of the Israeli progressive music.
Their second album "Free Fall" was released on March 2005 in Compact Records, and was a huge success.
This original creation ranked Lish as one of the leaders in the global progressive trance scene, and the album has been chosen as the album of the year
One of Lish's biggest hit "Fresh" of their second album followed by a unique single "Fresh - remixes - single malt" was made for Dj's of all genres and included nine different remixes from chill out through progressive trance.
The 3rd album 'Miles Away' has been in the works for a while, and it oozes with quality.
The grooves are uplifting and aimed for the dance floor, and the duo have carefully selected some of the best elements of the techno and minimal wave, while still maintaining elements of their past in trance.
Lish collaborated and remix producers such as Weekend Heroes, Magitman, Johnson & Haske, Ticon, Flippers, Thomas Penton, Alter Breed, Freq, Liquid Soul, Karl Johan, Vibrasphere, Ace Ventura (on "The Light", a huge hit from his debut album), with Yotopia (on the powerful groovy track "Intoxicated" also from their debut album) and with Michele Adamson on "Concrete Jungle".
These releases were on top labels like Iboga, Plastik Park, Stereo Seven Plus, Echoes, Tribal Vision, Blue Tunes, Spin Twist, Flow; Alpha Zero and many others.
All in all their music is a prime example of why their sets are in such high demand across the globe; from underground outdoor parties in their homeland of Israel, club parties in Europe, festivals in Japan or the mega outdoor events in Brazil:
Boom Festival (Portugal), Tshitraka Festival & Indian Spirit (Germany), Soulclipse (Turkey), S.O.S Festival (Japan), Ageha Club (Japan), Solar Vision Festival (Mexico), Universo Parallelo (Brazil), Xxperience (Brazil), Tribe (Brazil), Pacha (Brazil), Earth Core Festival (Australia) and many more.
In the begining of 2012, Lior & Shay decided to bring the project Lish back to the roots and to focus only in progressive trance music with this project.
They also formed another project Stereo Talk which aimed to the progressive house style.
