    Airwave - What It Takes (20 Years)

    Airwave's video on 10 things that have made his career into what it is today. What a guy.

    20 years of Airwave, 20 years of ups, downs, happiness, at home, 32000 feet up in the air, or up to 15000 miles away. I’ve always seen what I’m doing as an experiment made of trial and error, so it reads as an open book. Here’s IMHO what it takes to have a great, sustainable, and passionate career. #airwave20

    This is exactly why I'll always respect him as a human being and as an artist and will always wish him the best, regardless of what style/genre he's producing at the moment. He truly means what he just said, and he's been living it.

    The GREATEST of all time! 20 years of delivering music.... The most gigantic and alias bursting back-catalogue of any Trance artist ??Filled with countless gems masterpieces that I am still discovering from today. Showed talent across multiple syles of Trance, and across multiple genres. Always humble, always honest. NEVER sold out. Still DJing and Producing with a smile on his face and each new year I am excited to see what he is producing as it is never the same and always unique. I hope this guy produces for another 20 years and more, what a LEGEND!

    Actually, just to correct you, this year he's celebrating 20 years of Airwave, not 20 years of producing (or releasing music). His first records came out in '97. Though I think it is a mistake anyways, his first release as Airwave was in '98, I Want To Believe, so it's been 21 Years of Airwave if my calculations are correct.

    Other than maybe Mike Dierickx nobody can really brag about such an extensive discography when it comes to trance. I am a huge fan of Airwave yet when I look at all those aliases I feel like I've only scratched the surface.

    Every time I just even think of his discography, I get blown away. A huuuuuge output of, in the purest sense of the world, the classics of this genre. He explored lots of sub-genres, pioneered and defined some of them even. Especially when you think of his early years, who but him has even produced in his style(s)? Always unique.

    And then there's his personality. Always humble, always passionate about music, always there to talk to his fans. I remember once I asked him how he made a bassline sound in one of his releases, and he geeked out a bit about FM8 and additive synthesis, went out of his way just to explain me. He's got loads of tutorials and product reviews on YouTube as well. With this new series, you just know he cares about sharing knowledge...just like Junkie XL!

    And, basically, that's why I'll always respect him and wish him the best.

    Just a quick homage to his first ever single as Airwave. Still gorgeous.

    Seen that on Discogs while I was researching before I wrote the post, and somehow completely forgot about that once I started writing. Thanks, fixed it.

    Whats fascinating about him is....how underground hes stayed. Back in '99 he was on a level playing field with Tiesto,Armin,Ferry etc. and look how everyone careers have changed...he did a collab with Armin with 'Sunspot' and look at the alternating directions they took. Laurent is still regarded as one of the best producers of them all.

    Just makes it all the more crazy when i see my remix on his album...nothing would top that for me tbh - a ASOT play,a Beatport number 1 - nothing.

    Laurent is still passionate about what he does. Armin, Tiesto, etc lost their passion. That's the big difference. Airwave is a role model for Trance.

    I once did a thread about this sort of thing and I think the number one most prolific trance producers is a three way tie between Dierickx, Torsten Stenzel and Oliver Lieb. But anyways, good thread and I'm so glad Laurent's still in the game after all this time
