Very, very underwhelming return for Jonas Steur. It sounds laughably bad, it's like he heard a random acid techno track from 7 years ago and said "imma make this", and then proceeded to sloppily throw random sounds from a "club dance" soundpack together in a few hours. Wtf happened to him?

To be fair his 80's sounding track didn't sound too bad but it's not trance.

I can't believe how these producers (mostly Push and Airwave) with more than 20 years of experience in the music field voluntarily choose the most generic sounds of the modern times to create super plain music, this track from 'Jonas' sounds even amateurich to my ears

@TRANCEBLASTER gotta agree this sounds both generic and amateurish.

in Jonas defense - he hasn't been around all this time unlike Push or Airwave so after a long hiatus he has to start somewhere, if he'll release music for a couple of years from now and it will still suck that would place him in a row with Mike or Airwave.

You do know Jonas Steur has had like 5 releases under his Estuera alias in the last few years?

Yeah it is not for me as well.

He had made a couple good tracks as Estuera a couple years back, not sure if he will keep giving us trance productions, I hope too though.


is also a nice track from CD3. In ISOS 19 at CD 3 we got good productions from names like Mark Norman, Re:Locate, Cor Fijneman, Jonas Steur, Fonzerelli, Leon Bolier.

In general I loved the CD3 of the latest ISOS, great mix with real flow and many good tracks themselves too. Proper ISOS vibes mix. :D

Both Airwave (46 ATM) and Push (51) have been producing music since they were 7 years old and they have more than almost 40 years of experience actually.Well, to be fair with Airwave most of what he had has been sold off. Sadly, there is no love for music anymore because everyone who is established or has produced a hit is chasing $$$ or likes or fans or DJ gigs or make a pretty terrible sounding track. Most of them think there is no point in putting in the effort anymore or some of them don't want to hear constructive criticism or they get super sensitive whenever someone says they don't like it and shut down the forums completely *cough* Anjunabeats forum, Armin forum and JOOF Forum*cough* You can tell that in Airwave's recent productions that he is slacked off a lot some of the mastering of the remastered version are terrible and even some of the releases sound vague, generic and no real heart and soul being put into them just typical tech house derivatives or watered down trance tracks.

Meh, not bad. His making of video I find to be more entertaining and insightful than the track itself tbh. But decent work nonetheless

I said derivatives and I didn't say were actually tech house releases.
I read that correctly yea. his melodic/progressive stuff still has obvious trance roots, hearing that coming from a tech house area makes just as much sense as from dubstep or whatever. guess you're just disappointed for not playing the role somewhere around Laurent's career that you used to
