Airwave – The Man, The Legend – returns to Bonzai Progressive with a delicious helping of the most beautiful trance in The Quest For Beauty which comes complete with two superb remixes from Jam El Mar and Airwave’s own Fuel Terrace Remix. What more can be said about this guy, he just keeps on giving and surprising his army of followers with every production and with a career spanning over 20 years, Airwave’s profile just keeps on rising. More recently he has been delighting his fans with a mixture of videos that cover everything from production tutorials, reviews and critiques as well as some very interesting live casts that take place on the way to or during his gigs, check out Airwave’s social media spots for more on these as they are fast becoming quite regular and much anticipated. This Summer has already been a very busy one for Airwave, Legacy Festival, Tomorrowland, Luminosity, Retro Beach and others are just a sample of where you got to hear some classic sets. Coming up very soon you lucky people down under can expect to hear an Airwave set at Bad Habit in Perth which follows a return to Gatecrasher for their Reunion bash. Lots more to come from this guy so it’s well worth staying tuned in.
The Quest For Beauty – Original Mix boasts a long intro made up of some wonderfully crafted soundscapes that lead into a powerful driving trance groove full of melodies and euphoria. The cinematic qualities that we know and love are present making this another epic slice from the man himself and we’ve no doubt this one will be a firm favourite among many. First up on the remix we have the legendary Jam El Mar, an artist who championed the trance sound from the very early days alongside his friend and studio partner the late, great Mark Spoon as Jam & Spoon. For many years this guy has brought his super-charged sets to countless festivals and parties across Europe, as well as producing some of the most memorable tracks ever to be created (Stella, Follow Me, Odyssey To Anyoona, Tripomatic Fairytales 2001 and 2002 anyone?) We’re delighted to have him on board at Bonzai Progressive and hope to see more in the future. Here he delivers a solid, deep and moody progressive groove full of lush tones and a pounding, driving beat. The break features a sublime vocal sequence that fits the sound perfectly before we get back into full on mode for the duration. Up next is Airwave’s own Fuel Terrace Remix which is inspired by the Beach Bar at Fuel in Amsterdam. This time we go full on driving progressive with a chugging bassline and some tasty synths, strings and pads. An underlying acid line moves the sound beautifully while the super sweet melodies draw you in.
Get this one in the bag, you will not be disappointed!
