REVIEW: Airwave - Pray For Happiness out on JOOF recordings

Airwave is an artist of the highest calibre and Pray for Happiness is cut from a different cloth. Embellished with a mysterious yet uplifting melody, an emotive atmosphere, and his quintessential eastern percussion, this release is poised to create magic moments on dance floors across the world.

On remix duties DeCode and JOOF legend The Digital Blonde each take the reigns and add their own unique flair with their mix.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]There is always huge anticipation about what new Airwave is producing and when is released everybody in the scene talks about it. His incredible new release on JOOF is called Pray For Happiness and I will summarise it as classic Airwave sound that will please all his followers. Energetic pumping basslines along with tough drums while he adds magnificent classy melodies and epic orchestral strings along with the heavenly voices as he lead us nicely in his long atmospheric breakdown. If you like cinematic soundscapes that you enjoy with hands in the air this is the moment for you. His climax takes all the brilliant elements together and brings mayhem on any dancefloor. Epic Trance at its extremely best. DeCode remix is an excellent slice of classic progressive techno meets trance sound that recalls Oliver Lieb trance music from the past. Powerful, energetic, hypnotic, mesmerising with less melodies but more drive and dark moody atmospheres. Lastly The Digital Blonde deliver the straight to the point psy trance version but with many elements of the original making it perfect for uplifting trance sets as well. Dynamic razor sharp basslines and punchy drums along with percussion and sound effects along with the heavenly voices and the anthemic classy melodies. Particularly the climax is truly special and this remix should get the maximum of support! #PureGold Love It [/content]
