AIRWAVE – PARALLEL LINES (JOOF RECORDINGS)

 

 

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.

Airwaves 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 fanbase.

Versatility and great skill in the studio led to many collaborations including with his friend Jurgen Leyers with Fire & Ice and E.N.E.R.G.Y., Georges Petkidis on Planisphere and Marnik Braeckevelt with 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 Bonzai Records with his long time partners and friends, 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. Laurent’s works under many of his guises of which Airwave is his most known one.

Parallel Lines is the bundle version of Dark Lines and Bright Lines, both parts of this final concept album, with two surprise bonus tracks.

AIRWAVE – OYAMA (L*C*D RECORDINGS)

 

[soundcloud id=’69156653′]

 

Taken off Airwave’s Hit Album “Dark Lines”, this Brand New Single takes you on a serious Journey. Coming in 3 flavors this time. The Alternative Mix sends us back to the 90’s sound when everything was so simple and just great, Terra Ferma’s remix, made by Platipus Legens Kaukuta Saint, is another kind of beast, psychedelic and hypnotic, miles beyond what mainstream “Trance” has to offer today, and finally the Original Mix, taken off Dark Lines, closes another great selection of mixes.

BONZAI PROGRESSIVE PODCAST – WEEK 17 – 2012

EPISODE 166: Tiago Ribeiro – Grooviest Cat (AU Records)

AU Orange is proud to present its third release. Deepest than ever, Tiago Ribeiro’s “Grooviest Cat” is an EP full of surprises, containing the original version and 3 wonderful remixes from Joao Teixeira (Portugal), Filipa Rebelo (Portugal) and Jazzam (Ecuador).

Tiago Ribeiro made its original version very pleasant to classic deep-house lovers with its “chicago beat style” fused with delayed saxophone sounds, typical delayed house music female shouts and the unusual using of “mafia style” vocals and flute sounds. This very simple composition has been tested and approved in the dance floor, making the crowd move to its groove.

Joao Teixeira, portuguese DJ and house music producer is the newest acquisition on our artist team. His remix shown how perfectly he fits AU Orange’s philosophy, delivering his meaningful mix, enabling the listener to take a trip while listening to his track. Beautifully sculpted, this version is marked by its random sounding percussion and every little detail in its production, from the usage of the right sounding pads and stabs, ambience violins and brilliant vocal treatment. We asked, Joao delivered!

Filipa Rebelo presented a solid sounding mix with a beautiful composition between different synth sounds, building a beautiful sounding deep-house track. Very well produced, this mix has a different basis, changing the classic “chicago house beat” with very powerful and effective new-school percussion. Once more Filipa’s done it and made her magic, grabbing the “old schoolish’ original mix and recreating in a completely different way, while keeping all its feelings and beauty.

Jazzam brought to the EP his techie vision of “Grooviest Cat”, spicing it to ground shaking levels! If every version in this EP has its own hour to be played, Jazzam’s version is definitely the 6AM version. Outrageously dance-floor effective, this mix counts with beautifully synthesized arp’s and great overall arranging and its our big trump to hit the most demanding crowds.

EPISODE 167: U.O.K. – Emperor’s Palace (Bonzai Elemental)

Debut album from chillout artist U.O.K. in Bonzai Elemental.

EPISODE 168: Goksel Vancin – Veni Vidi Vici (Sounds R Us Recordings)

Göksel Vançin, born in 1984 in Istanbul, where he started his musical career on a Akai deck on the age of 8.

His brothers effected Göksel to new wave, new age and techno styles. All that influence brought him to the sound of techno, tech house and deep house.

His first release was in the year 2008 on the infamous imprint of Ahmet Sendil’s Bosphorus Underground Recordings.

For the very first time Göksel is proudly presenting his 2 magnificent tech house & techno tracks on Sounds R Us Recordings.

EPISODE 169: Zas & Sanze present Mindgamers – Hold You (Bonzai Progressive)

This young & dynamic producer duo from Tallinn is worth keeping an eye & ear on.

Mindgamers was created by two talented DJs from Estonia – Zas & Sanze. Both of them are Tallinn natives and started their career in 1999. In the year 2009, they founded the musical project Mindgamers. The main genres they are producing are progressive and tech house.

This release comes with a brilliant Stefano Noferini remix with early support from Slam, Luciano, Anderson Noise, Benoit C, Funkatron, Scan Mode,…

EPISODE 170: Ittai Barkai – Canadian Forest EP (Eyepatch Recordings)

Fast rewind a few years back and you’ll find Ittai gently leaning towards a turntable, headphones on, listening to music. May it be African chorals, early techno or the Beatles, it all lay side by side on the long & endless shelves of musical ideas.

Years have passed and the magic is cautiously blended into know how – Amplifiers and compressors, Drum arrangements and notes, Cutoffs and wavetables all put together side by side to reproduce and recur similar musical ideas.

After producing music for the World Wildlife Foundation and other soundtrack projects, Ittai is lately focused on producing simple yet aesthetic electronic tracks well aimed at both home listeners and club DJ’s.

strong>EPISODE 171: Airwave – Cathedrals Of Hope (L*C*D Recordings)

God, this is one hell of a cracker!

Cathedrals Of Hope is an outstanding piece of music. Credible, Strong, with an Attitude.

Reset marks Airwave’s return to heavier sounds for a trancer that’s larger than life.

And Last But Not Least: a Brand New Version of his last Smasher Atlas Winds, this time featuring great vocals by Francesca Genco. Should justify its presence into every actual dj’s recordbox for the next months to come.

Essential Release.
