Surprised with the sound, sounds quite oldschool-ish and not very Fable-ish :D I can definitely hear some analog sounds in the last track. My fav seems to be the second one tho :)

Easily the best thing Airwave's done in years.. Nice late 90s trance sounds!

Style fits the project name very well. Cool release! Bummer about the very hollow kick.
Track 3 reminds me a bit of Des Mitchell

Would never have guessed this was Airwave, especially after a few years with only boring deep trance stuff. Unfortunetly these tracks are all way to short for my taste

All three fun little tracks. Mainly the 1st and 3rd for me.

They are indeed a tad short, the tracks might have benefited from adding some more ideas into them, maybe even merging track 1 and 3, into one.

I usually don't mind the length of a track if it justifies it. However, I think all of these would benefit from a few extra minutes, cause I get the feeling that something is missing in each one.

Still, liking the overall sounds here. #1 and #3 are my picks as well.

Yeah the top one is indeed 'luvstruck'y.

But don't you think the song could have used... something more? Luvstruck for example has that stabby synth as well, and some vocal samples that are instantly recognizable. Makes it more complete.

Nope, loving it, less is more
