I can imagine Ilan Bluestone remix of this to add some modern pump to it

the track itself.. I guess I can say it about any of Airwave's recent releases - you don't need to be Airwave to produce it. guess it's better to lower the expectations, then they're all more or less decent records as for now

I was waiting long years for any reference to Rank 1 - Airwave title in Laurent’s track :D

Sound… surprising and enjoyable :) Definitely the best one from already released AM’s tracks ✌️


Lowki waiting for this joke title for ages to finally clarify he's not rank 1 cos of rank 1 anthem being titled Airwave lmao

Finally a solid, melodic track from him. Title is funny as well. Looking forward to this :)

Tbh this feels like a melody that you could have written around 2007-10
It is kind of my style and was my alley back then (maybe I should make something like i did then?), but I never can keep melodies simple enough .D This is just perfect from Airwave, he nailed it

Finally. I mentioned it few times already to Laurentt, haha.
And I'm glad I can now share my meme from few years ago about another dude guessing one of Airwave's tracks and after hearing the artist name, he said "Rank 1, no?"

I think it sounds like Rank 1 & that might be the actual pun behind calling it im not rank 1 yet I can produce a rank 1 style lead.


Im finding the main melody to be super repetitive and boring, annoying infact. #Meme fail

that's true, I don't get how it can be likeable, it's pure primitive shite and far worse than the solid melodic basis that he has in the principle of forgiveness just to compare with the other his new track

He definitely has intended to go for an obnoxiously commercial sound with this one, I'm curious if any DJs will pick up on this. Simple and repetitive melodies like that are what the mainstream players like to play.

Why fail, it's just as annoying as many Rank1 tracks are, lol

But despite it being repetitive and commercial sounding, there are many things about this track that I enjoy.
Especially the summery sound of that lead and that overall sunny, euphoric vibe.

Lead is absolutely inspired by "modern" Rank 1. You can't make a track with that title and not trying to poke a bit of fun of Piet and Benno.

Surprisingly, I track I can get behind after years of soulless music from Laurent
