Yet another Airwave release I almost missed (thanks YouTube though!).

I think this is much better than his previous one. Great production. The remix is pretty amazing as well, has some great atmospheres there.

Worth listening through, it is. Its a proper tune and I'll say its around a 6.5/7 out of 10.

And yes, i also found it well-produced. Theres some nice subtle elements in their along with the percs that stick out. The best thing about is that you actually wanna hear how it plays out, and I'd say it doesnt dissapoint in that aspect. Having said that its not the most exciting thing I've heard either. Its tricky to say what have made it better. Its a little flat maybe, aaaaand a little slow, but it fits this style I guess.

The only thing I dont like is those claps. It sounds like they sampled a bunch of persons clapping at the same time and then they made it sound so damn snappy and artifical. To my ears its pretty off-putting.

The(se) claps don't seem out of place to me. I think they are preferable to snares in this style.

Liking it. Airwave is pretty good with the percussion in his modern work and initially I agreed with Daysleeper that the track is not hugely interesting and I felt like it needed some kind of groove or perhaps more emotion behind it to elevate, but actually after 3/4 listens on my headphones now I feel its trying to get into a different space and I find the whole thing pretty relaxing and considered.

Something 4mins in needs to be introduced ( a baseline?) to keep me engaged, otherwise its just a stale track that has been produced very well. It needed to go somewhere.

The style seems to fit the modern Bonzai releases and format, so I was expecting something like this and for that reason I enjoyed. I also have that similar feeling, that it could say (or do) more
