Airwave – In The Mix 007 – Progressive Sessions

Published

on

It was Airwave who fired the starting shot for Bonzai’s now three-years-and-running ‘In The Mix – Progressive Sessions’ series back in the summer of 2015. Maintaining a clockwork-regular two-per-year release-tempo, it most recently dropped Gai Barone’s Feb-released ‘006’ edition. (“9/10 – the ethos of progressive captured” said MIXMAG upon its arrival). ‘ITM007’ – out this autumn, sees its mix-baton passed back into the hands of the Belgian. In the pursuit of conquering even ‘ITM 001’s dizzying heights, Laurent has gone the extra mile brilliantly networking 28 tracks into 150 mind-expanding minutes of progressive eminence.

Along its path you’ll make contact with freshly sourced studioware from Gai Barone, Jerome Isma-Ae & Alastor, John 00 Fleming, Eelke Kleijn, Oovation & Yoachim, The Stupid Experts, Stan Kolev and a progressively star-filled sky of others. It also includes material from Airwave’s own most recent release (the DJ Mag 8/10 scoring ‘Bliss EP’), as well as hot-from-the-studio production ‘Attraction’ and two purpose built intro pieces, which establish the feel for each of its discs.

 

With mixing skills almost otherworldly in their ability to blend without margin and a blackbelt understanding the composition of its assembled music, Laurent serves the album a cultured, layered and textually intense experience unlike any other.

In the most classic of senses, Airwave overtures with his bespoke ‘ITM007: Intro Part 1’ creation. It places the anticipatory sounds of an orchestral string section tuning up against atmospheric pads and intruding drum march. Scene luminously set, it cedes to allow the air-spun melodics of Eelke Kleijn’s ‘The Calling’, Slam Duck’s drumatic retake of Narel’s ‘Circle Sky’ and Airwave’s own swirling prog-noir ‘Gravy Train’ in. Around its midpoint, Rauschhaus’ rebuild of Oovation & Yoachim’s ‘Open It Wide’ finds common ground with the bassy prowl of  ‘Night And Day’ from The Stupid Experts. As Mix1 thunders hypnotically towards its terminus, Laurent feeds ‘Bliss’ – the lead track from his latest EP – into its system, before reaching its atmospheric apex through brilliantly vivid ‘Eclipticum’ from Cortex Thrill.

Storm’s-coming drums & scudding bass notes herald mix 2’s arrival. Giving tone, tempo and sonic tenacity a nudge, Laurent also allows a shot-glass’-worth of trancier liquor into his mix. Basil O’Glue’s netherworldian ‘Shrine’ flashes the steel; Stan Kolev’s ‘Utopia’ (in its Audio Noir Trip version) adds darker, even more sonorous notes, while ‘Voyage’ from Andromedha ups its celestial ante. Midway through, Airwave slips his newie ‘Attraction’ in, which makes a lightning connection to Gai Barone’s ‘Flash’. As the ether turns darker again, Jerome Isma-Ae & Alastor’s ‘Timelapse’ bring the moodily rolling bass and crunchier percussive elements in. That sets up John 00 Fleming & EEEmus’ (per DJ Mag “chunky, warpy and not without its funkier moments”) ‘Drop From The Vile’ up to deliver the release’s final coup de grace.

More about Airwave:

Laurent Veronnez aka Airwave aka many many other guises was born in Brussels in 1977, he is a naturally gifted artist and this manifested in him at the age of just 7. Influenced by the 80′s and 90′s sounds and by greats such as Kraftwerk, Jean Michel Jarre, Orbital, Oliver Lieb and BT, he honed his skills in music knowledge and technology. Laurent would then see demos picked up by the infamous Bonzai imprint in 1996 and the stunning Airwave – “I want To Believe” was released. In 1998 this was picked up by many top DJ’s including Sasha and Oakenfold and later on by an up and coming DJ, Tiesto. Airwave’s sound was and still is prominent in the UK and Dutch trance scene and this has helped a host of today’s top DJ’s be where they are now. His infectious music spread further in 1999 to Germany, Italy and the world and now Airwave is a very popular name on the EDM scene with a huge, loyal fan-base.

Versatility and great skill in the studio led to many collaborations including with his friend Jurgen Leyers forming together Fire & Ice and E.N.E.R.G.Y., with Georges Petkidis on some Planisphere tracks and with Marnik Braeckevelt as Antidote. The list continues with many other greats including Yves Deruyter, M.I.K.E., Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Tale, Marcus Schulz and John 00 Fleming, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Breaking boundaries and turning his hand to many genres of music Laurent has as many as 500+ productions and remixes under his belt. Laurent then started to develop his DJing and live performances and has played in some big venues, Slinky, Gatecrasher, Godskitchen, The Gallery, 1015, Dopler in Bratislava, and many others back in the day.

In 2000 he embarked on a new wave of performance with gigs all over the world in England, Scotland, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Canada, Netherlands, Spain, Finland, Norway, Switzerland, South Africa, with totally improvised keyboards while DJing and the Triloset was born and continues to this day. Fast approaching 20 years in the business, Laurent can never be pigeon-holed to one genre as his impressive list of albums will attest. His first album “Believe” in 2002 performed very well and this was to do well again in the 2004 album “I Want To Believe”. “Trilogique” soon followed and it is now that Laurent’s passion starts to come through in a big way. Released first in 2006 this album contains three parts, bringing the audience three different tastes of electronic music into one single package, “Trilogique” would go on to be a huge success reaffirming Laurent’s position in EDM. Many more albums followed and each have made their mark on the world.

Time saw him finally running Banshee Worx with his long time partners and friends Marnik and Fly, and also expanding his knowledge of acoustics in order to develop his career as a producer and as a sound designer among others. Laurent runs a monthly radio show called Progrez where he showcases a wide range of music, this is followed religiously by his army of fans the world over. Music that is full of emotion, special and unique with expressed feelings, many have claimed it has changed their lives for the better. When there are discussions on greats of EDM the name Airwave-Laurent always crops up.

He has a deep respect among his peers for his beliefs on the industry and he speaks honestly about how he feels and where he sees his musical vision take him. One of the most gifted artists of our time and with a passion still very strong we are sure to see a lot more from this man. Laurent’s works under many of his guises can be found at all good download stores and a comprehensive list of his various aliases can be found at Bonzai Music artist pages or Discogs.

Real Trance Addicts Have A Listen! Chicane – Lost You Somewhere (Interstellar Remix)

Published

on

By

About a month or two ago, I posted on my social media that I had already established my favorite tracks of the year. After watching Interstellar – “Creations” Live @ Luminosity Beach Festival 01/07/2018, the duo brought back the real essence of trance music not only for myself but for countless others. Their second track consisted of a remix of the classic “Chicane – Lost You Somewhere” and it’s one of those tracks where you just take it all in and lose yourself in the music. Check out the video above and let me know what you think.

Stellar Collision = A coming together of two stars caused by gravity, gravitational radiation, and other mechanisms not well understood.

Apply this to trance with two creative talents and the result is Interstellar.

Andrew Alexandrov (The Noble Six) & Dan Willis (Neptune Project) are now well and truly embarked on their galactic journey in 2018 bringing you their special ‘Creations’ Set which features solely Interstellar only productions.

Heavily inspired by the likes of Chicane, Above & Beyond, The Thrillseekers, Paul Van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Tiesto, Sander Van Doorn, Oliver Lieb, Airwave and many others, the Interstellar productions are reflective of a sound and production art seemingly lost in today’s trance, but still deeply desired from fans.

Expect driving bass, emotional breakdowns, nostalgia, goosebumps and most of all no creative boundaries.

Solarstone pres. Pure Trance Vol.7 (Mixed by Kristina Sky, Solarstone & Lostly)

Published

on

By

Autumn… and as Pure Trance’s datebook runs, the end of its seventh year as a scene force. This, like the six before it, comes marked in the time honoured way through ‘Solarstone Presents Pure Trance’.

From within” is where the architect-absolute of the movement, Rich Solarstone believes every Pure Trance-worthy track begins. “When you’re compiling these albums, you know within the first 90 listening-seconds, he says, whether it’s a producer pushing the physical or metaphoric buttons. Or, if it’s a musician truly making music that comes from within”. It’s the acid test each of 50 tracks on ‘Pure Trance VII’ have taken and passed.
Divine intervention perhaps, but latterly, with every 365 that goes by another two new Pure Trance proponents rise to co-mixing prominence, reckoning #7 being no exception. That said, the argument could be made that Kristina Sky’s been in contention far longer. Well-established darling of the US West Coast’s trance scene, she brings 15+ years expertise to her mix. Lostly however is the ne-plus-ultra of the above. Only 12 months ago a ‘one-of-many’, through an unstinting gig & music-making stream, the last 365’s seen Andre Frauenstein’s visibility rise to compilation mixing levels.

 

Naturally Pure Trance lives and breathes through its ability to discover and supply you with the very finest new audio from the freshest talent. As ever then, don’t expect a run of fare from the mainstream’s usual suspects. For every BT, you’re going to find a Dark Matter, for every Matt Darey, a Vadim Zhukov, or for every Scott Bond, an Everlight, a Sam Mitcham, an Astrosphere, etc, etc. Naturally, there’ is an abundance of newness from Lostly and Solarstone’s studios too, and even the usually DJ-booth-bound Kristina has headed into the studio for the album’s gleaming.

So, strap in, sign off those safety waivers and buckle up your dancefloor-pounding boots: Pure Trance is heading to seventh heaven!!!

Out November 9th  – Order Pure Trance VII Here: https://solarstone.co.uk/product/pure-trance-vol-7/

 

In it’s now destined manner, 2018’s ‘Solarstone Presents Pure Trance’ follows the natural arc of a flawless clubbing night. Someone who’s blazed the opening set trail many times for Solarstone, Kristina Sky’s instincts couldn’t be sharper. Of her 20-strong track set, no less than 16 are drawn from the ranks of Pure Trance Recordings latest & up-comers. Frontend of that train, you’ll find producers like Mike Saint-Jules, Elfsong and Revolution 9 delivering purity in the form of ‘Parachuting’, ‘Crenshinibon’ and ‘Awakening’. Kristina’s Resurrection Mashup of BT vs. Attila Syah ‘Journey To Gravity’ marks the midpoint, while (respectively) New Ordinance, Shacada and Tim Verkruissen bring ‘calm-before-the-storm’ moments ‘Beyond Gravity’, ‘Sunset’ & ‘Radiant’. Carrying her set to its conclusion, she works in the Blizzard’s remix of ‘Like A Waterfall’, Solar Movement (aka Activa)’s newie ‘Where We Dream’ and her own latest stunner (alongside Roger Shah), ‘Ocean Flame’.

Remarking on her participation in the album, Kristina said: “I’m truly honoured to have been invited by Rich to contribute to ‘Pure Trance Vol. 7’. Solarstone’s music was a huge inspiration to me early on, well before I started DJing, and I’ve been so impressed and proud to watch him grow the Pure Trance movement over the years. He’s been a great friend and mentor, so to be able to mix this compilation with him has – hands down – been one of the biggest highlights of my career. I hope you all enjoy the music… and Vive la Trance!”

Solarstone catches the closing flow of Kristina’s disc perfectly and with his own Reconstruction mix of Vadim Zhukov’s ‘Heart Connected’ puts the release onto its main-set footing. Tracks like Dark Matter’s ‘When Faith Fades’, ‘False Memory’ from Finland’s Allende and his Pure Mix bring-back of Pink Bomb’s underground classic ‘Indica’ set the mercury rising. Neil Bamford rewire of ReOrder’s ‘Beyond Time’, Astrosphere (aka Driftmoon & Robert Nickson)’s ‘What Lies Between The Stars’, and Mr. Nickson’s remix of Solarstone’ ‘Motif’ each further its ascendance. That only leaves the likes of ‘Something Out Of Nothing’ from Bryan Kearney, Sam Mitcham’s title-apt ‘Whopper’ and Craig Connelly’s revision of Rich’s own epic ‘Jewel’ to shatter disc 2’s thermometer.
Of his co-mix picks for album #7, Rich said: “I’m delighted to have Kristina and Andre joining me this year. I first met Kristina at my Circus L.A debut some 15 years age. We remained friends ever since & I can’t overstate how much she has done for trance in the USA. I chose Andre aka Lostly for this year’s Disc 3 after he played for us in Thailand at the Unkonscious Festival. His energy blew me away, as did his exacting ‘pünktlichkeit’ during the compilation progress, which was absolute professionalism”.

 

Lostly currently reigns supreme”; “better with every track and remix”; “every release finds the net”; “yet more brilliance from Lostly” – just some of the plaudits that DJ Mag alone have placed at the German’s door of late. Whilst Andre Frauenstein’s enjoys an all-times-of-the-night DJing ability, for ‘Pure Trance VII’ he’s handling ‘the final set’. He wastes zero time in weighing in with recent voltage from Simon Bostock, Everlight, Sneijder, Liam Wilson, Indecent Noise and others. A man who always has a healthy resource of his own music to work with, he intermixes his disc with his own studio fare. Katherine Amy pairing ‘Forever’, Factor B union ‘Strandloper’ and (in solo-mode) ‘Reflection’ all land early craters. Latterly meanwhile, Scott Bond & Charlie Walker collab ‘Tides’, his own ‘Distant Shores’, and Allen Watts remix’s of ‘Trans Karoo’ likewise prevail.

 

Having compiled and mixed his disc, Lostly commented: “I wanted to find the right balance between showcasing a number of different artists while still keeping that Lostly sound. By approaching a number of artists to do collaborations, I felt it would be a great solution in yielding as many originals for the album as possible. Not only did I find myself growing personally as an artist but I also found it interesting working with others and seeing their workflow. Alongside these collaborations are originals by other artists of which I enjoy listening to as well as solo album-exclusive originals of mine, which have become near and dear to me”.
