    Airwave - Venus Of My Dreams [1998]

    If I'm not mistaken, this is his first release (according to Discogs - definitely the first one under Airwave). The more you listen to it, the more it becomes magical and one of his best works. What a journey.

    This kind of (dated (labels say)) produtions is missing these days. Excellent track indeed. L-Vee releases are also marvelous.

    The production is pretty dated, but it's so warm and beautiful you actually don't give a damn. This can be achieved even today, with modern production standards, but it takes a pretty special talent to pull it off - like it did in 1998.

    BTW, love how the pads (and other elements) seem like they weren't processed almost at all. Even if there was an EQ, it's so subtle, and certainly not clinical. The focus was on making the right sounds from the start.

    True - theres about 4 or 5 main elements that make up the track,and before you even make it, you really have to check if they work all at the same - which they do here. I hear he used the V-One hats in this hehe - classic sounds.

    No label will sign it these days because of that. And that's a sad thing, because masterpieces like this, dated production it is, are losing feeling/emotion with modern production (too many elements for example) imo. Dated trance productions are only on you tube (not signed demo's) by producers loving the classic trance tracks.
    Anyway, classic section forever it will be or will dated production like this make a comeback ever?.Guess not I'm afraid.
    Some will stated that the new Neon album by The Digital Blonde is also dated production, and that's is the best trance album this year imo. Ridiculous imo ,but times change unfortunately in this case and for my ears/taste.

    But if this was made today,it would be using more modern instruments and would get signed - the original is only dated because of the era it was made in....but i agree with you,classic melodies like this are so overlooked and never played - looking at Youtube,this has about 25K views in its lifetime,which is ridiculous, whereas the latest Arnej track will get that in a day haha.

    The latest Digital Blonde productions are a lot more polished and higher quality than he used to make - go listen to his old 'Synthology' album. But that actually what i liked about him,very raw and barely mastered.

    I don't get why some of your tracks won't pick up by the bigger labels. But that's me, in that period you mentioned above it was released by the bigger trance labels out there. But the style is changed a lot also.
    Anyway the talented Laurent V. 's got a very big discography to dig into;-)
