You'd definitely do well with reviews :D

Airwave is simply a genius and what I truly like and admire about him is his ability to captivate, seduce and comfort with his creations. Now, don't get me wrong, this is only how I understand and feel his music. To me he is a creator, not just a plain musician. He holds that emotion so elegantly and you can connect through his music in a most special way.

This track is indeed something! Beautifully described and felt! Impressive! Which is Why his tracks are one ultimate masterpiece!
👌


And about the Wa Wu We's touch, very artistic and unusual vision!

That makes at least two Airwave superfans in Serbia! :D Yeah, a proper artist, which is not that common actually in the trance scene. Most are just producers, IMO. And there's nothing wrong with (good) producers, just that Airwave is something more.

Agreed! :D I thought I was the only one frankly speaking. 🙌 He is definitely something more, from a different universe more likely. And I love him because of that!
I'm with you on this one!💪:cool:

Since this is by far my favourite thread here :D I'll share one interesting Lost Language track. Very classy and progressive... Generally, entire Lost Language opus can fit to this type of sophisticated, classy, mysterious and deep music. I can't express the love I feel for LL - its ethos, artists, music it's pure magic and I encourage everyone to take a listen to some of their releases. It's truly different and authentic!

Sasha - Xpander.

Definitely hearing it now. It's not complex in terms of elements, but its simplicity is deceiving. The lead melody itself is complex. The way it goes up and down, suddenly hits hard and then goes soft again...is brilliant and very playful. And then there's the following elements, which really add to the track and make it a pleasure to listen to for the entire 11 minutes and 37 seconds. And it's so well made it sounds incredible even today.

If i would define sophisticated Trance music in my own way it would be tracks that are subtle in nature, with a pleasing pace, no big melodies or huge uplifting moments, no rushing drums and of course 0% cheese. Each element fits together, with nothing trying over-do the last or take centre stage. It's emotional, but not overly so. The kind of Trance you could play to non-trance lovers, who would not be put off by the intensity or over-emotion, but probably find too boring to the un-trained ears.

Wanted to post this a few days ago, forgot I guess. Quite possibly one of the most sophisticated trance tracks (to me, at least)! Agree with the rest of your statements as well.

Although I always choose the original, I still love this remix and actually I think it is a more refined and sophisticated approach to the track

Everyone has their own definition of sophistication. To me, in layman's terms it means something opposite of simple. In the context of trance and prog it means a track which makes you go crazy, makes you want to dance and move your body without relying on some simple feature like, for example, a loud and repetitive riff. A track I consider sophisticated is below which was produced by some of the best producers of classic prog. It has so many features and effects, they all blend together well and are all congruent with one another in creating a dark atmospheric track. Most importantly for a dance track it makes you want to dance every step of the way. It's like cooking a great casserole with so many quality ingredients all mixed and blended together into a single dish for a great taste, as opposed to some steroid trancer which is the equivalent of a Mars bar made of 60% sugar and having a sickly sweet taste.
