Review: The trance fraternity was pleased to welcome back Airwave this year, a true pioneer of the genre who found a great new home in JOOF and deliver two brilliant LP's. To wrap up the 12 months they bring 'Dark Lines' and 'Bright Lights' together for a special bundle addition and what's more there are two exclusive bonus tracks, a 2012 remaster of 'Save Me' and an Unplugged mix of 'When Things Go Wrong'. Two albums for the price of one, so if you missed out on either of these journeys through trance the first time round, make sure you grab them now!
Review: The legend that is Airwave is back with his 5th studio album, and for this much anticipated return he has ventured back to his routes, and lands on the perfectly fitting JOOF imprint. We are sure that label boss 00 Flemming has had much input across the 13 tracks (which can never be bad thing), and the LP kicks off infact with their collaboration 'The Absolute Reality', other highlights in this wonderful collection of uplifting tracks that have underlying delicate progressive soundscapes and twisted psy.. include his works with Nico Parisi, Astropilot, DJ Fire and 'Reset', 'Cathedrals of Hope'.
Review: Australian label Balance Music welcome back the Georgian duo Michael & Levan Dunamalyan, once again in collaboration with Croatian artist Stiven Rivic - who altogether head up the imprints Mistique Music and Kunai Records. The Eye Candy EP features some wonderfully melodic progessive house action: from the glassy-eyed and bittersweet dancefloor drama of the title track which is reminiscent of German legends like Wighnomy Brothers or Extrawelt, while the slinky and hypnotic bounce of "Portal" is proper headrush inducing material that's perfect listening under the strobe lights.
Review: Giving hope to words which otherwise evoke the opposite, Mistique Music and Kunai Records founders Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic return with Agony. Trance is the name of the game here, with the lead track's skipping groove weaving through a sonic field of synths, melodic progressions, soft, glass-like percussion and swathes of pads and breathy textures. "Neglected" delivers a more club-concentrated mix that's reduced in texture but big in dub and warehouse bounce. A little more tech house than trancey but all good!
