This was a special track from Lolo aka Airwave. I remember it being pretty popular in this forum, with a lot of positive feelings towards it. I wouldn't say it sounds like a typical Lolo track really, but it has a beautiful atmosphere and balance to it none the less. It also has the dramatic sounding percussion Laurent was using a lot in this time from 2012-2016. Was this the last Lolo release?

My daughter was born in 2014 and named Laia after this track 😊

Yes, this was the last (hopefully not final) Lolo track. Laurent said he's not too keen on reviving his aliases, because of marketing reasons (everything that's not Airwave gets overlooked).

As far as this track goes, a gorgeous one and definitely a future classic. I think it was one of the most commented threads in the upcoming releases section on the old forum, and all of the comments were extremely positive, which is an achievement in itself.

@DazTC that's so beautiful! I think Airwave's daughter is also called Laia, and he dedicated this track to her. It sort of has a child-like vibe to it.

I think it was written for Laia, his now ex-partner mate, but it’s not important 😊

Yeah, and the previous one was for his daughter (Myla's Theme)? Sorry, not really up to date with the man's private life. :D

It is currently the most-viewed track on this section by a wide margin (90 views vs. 65 for the Ayumi Hamasaki Alex MORPH remix).
I like it, it's really good. It hits different from the Middle Eastern style, and instead feels like something from Anjunadeep.

Just rediscovered this track. What a pleasant surprise - loved the fantasy feel in this track.

Best of the 2010-2020 for sure. Top 5, if not 3, if not #1.

A future classic indeed. In general these were very sad years for the trance scene, but this was one of the highlights. Great track.

Super... I love the way it builds and builds and then peaks, the accompanying keyboard melody and the ethereal sounds in the background. The main melody is a mix of melancholic and uplifting emotions despite being relatively simple. 8.5/10
