Seems like he has taken inspiration from other tracks, at least earlier in his career (I can't speak for recently since I haven't followed). Sasha - Arkham Asylum and Belfunk are templates for many of the early Planisphere releases, and the breakdown melody in Fire and Ice - Never Ending Melody is practically lifted from Gouryella.

I'm sorry but Rain Upon My Skin is complete garbage and I'm so disappointed in Airwave for heading in this direction. He was on a roll early last year, what the hell happened?

Complete garbage how?

A slight change of perspective/style is what happened.

Entropy happened.it's also not his fault. He owes nothing to us. He has already given us 20 years of Trance music. I think he's one of the most under-appreciated trance artists of our time and I didn't like how a few found his music boring.I think what he has given to Trance is more than any of the tiestos could ever do. We have asked for so much from him and look where he is at the moment. Most of the so called newer generation haven't even heard of him or his music.


Maybe it's time that he goes on a different journey. All the best to him. Let him be.He deserves better than what he got with the Trance crowd which is pennies and years of pain and struggle.

Another one: Angelica has a definite Holden vs Thompson - Nothing (93 Returning mix) vibe to it

LV may have taken a bit of a new approach, and personally I am very interested to see how he's going to develop this in the time to come, but it's not like Rain Upon My Skin is so massively different from his output of the past couple of years. Even if he's now taken a bit of a different trajectory it's not like he's actually turned to a wholly different sound with this particular track. I think we can dispense with the drama.

I honestly can't hear any difference between Rain Upon My Skin and the rest of his output over 20 years...?

Agreed - and I think it's a brilliant track too

Here is his newer remix of Gai Barone. He tried to capture the 90s Trance feel with this one.

The problem is this “progressive” sound Airwave is suddenly doing is played out. People like 16Bit Lolitas were doing what he’s trying to do like ten years ago. It just feels like he took a major step down. Maybe he got burned out with Trance? I mean he really OUTDID himself (in a GREAT WAY) during the last 5 years, pouring out EPIC trance records one after the other. Maybe he has “writers block” when it comes to Trance and this “progressive” is the easy way out.

You are talking absolute rubbish here. Firstly, the track doesn't sound anything like what 16 Bit Lolitas were doing a few years ago. I can only presume you're another cloth-eared trance cracker who thinks everything without a massive melody is "boring" and "progressive".

Secondly, have you ever actually been to see Airwave DJ? This track is an ideal momentum-sustaining bridge between the kind of tracks he's been making and playing since 2012. Not every tune in a set should be a cry-your-eyes-out unicorn moment, and the reason Airwave is one of the handful of trance DJs worth seeing is because he does actually space the big tunes out and lets you dance, rather than just jump around like an idiot at the end of a snare roll over and over again, like Pavlov's particularly cretinous dog.

Honestly, I'm not even a big fan of this sound anymore (it's all a bit over-produced for me, but I suppose that's trance for you), but what you've written is such complete drivel I had to angrily turn on my laptop at 7.30am this morning to write this response. No wonder trance has gone so completely down the pan when people like you are the biggest fans.
