Legend! That 98-02 era mustve been a magical time.

Although at the same time it kind of despairs me that Laurent should have a lot more followers and plays of his music in this day & age. His channel has been there since 2007 but only got 2K subs so not sure what has happened to this side. Espeically when you compare to what has happened to the likes of Armin & Ferry,who were on an even keel back in the late 90's. I do speak to him occasionally and give him tips on how to grow his YT audience hehe,because it should be in the millions imo. Hes made some real bonafide classics of the Trance genre.

Greatest ever producer in trance along with Oliver Lieb? I would say Lieb just edges it.
I'd say Airwave does. I think he was more successful, more diverse and had a larger body of work. Plus, his tracks are a lot more memorable as well.

In my opinion, Oliver Lieb's best tracks are better than Airwave's best tracks, but Airwave has more consistent work and remained a "true" trance producer for far longer.

I'd like to see the comparison of what you think their best are.

I'd disagree on all of those points. Oliver Lieb has been producing trance since the early 90s and has released a larger body of work on more labels, especially some legendary ones from early to late 90s.
I'd say his productions are more diverse too because he is superb at producing straight up techno as well as tech trance, euphoric trance, progressive trance, prog house, chilled trance, pretty much anything. I know Airwave is diverse too and there's not much between them but I think Lieb's technically better. Compare most of their stuff from the 90s and I'd say his work was definitely more spacious, crisp and clear sounding compared to Airwave.
And finally I'd say Lieb's most memorable productions and remixes like Hearts and Netherworld are generally regarded in the trance world as bigger classics. In the last 10 years though Airwave has produced more and better work.

I can't believe you'd argue my point about diversity. What hasn't Airwave done? Probably psy or goa but that's it.

Anyways, as they say, agree to disagree. It's great to have two giants of the genre.
