2022: the birth of my record label Progressions


It’s been a while and what a crazy period it’s been… Here are some updates of what’s been going on with me.

After 25 years of collaboration, I have left my long time record label. I don’t wish to share all the details, but it was a necessary step in the direction I want to go. I will also no longer appear at these events, and my sets at Tomorrowland 2022, which were originally scheduled for 2020, were the last 3 ones.

Now begins an exciting new chapter and I am happy to announce my own new record label Progressions!

Progressions already has several new releases including: Adelaide’s Voyage – a 7 track EP of mine, and followed soon by my new single Kitchen Paper, Paper Towel – a techy progressive track I’m very happy with. More info coming this September ! I will also be releasing two collaborations with top vocalists from Belgium by the end of the year.

Plus, very soon will be releasing two singles by Christian Monique and Gai Barone on Progressions.

I’m also very happy to announce that my award-winning original soundtrack for Borrowed Time 3 was released earlier this month. A bit late I know! The OST album contains 39 music cues I made for this 3rd episode of this movie trilogy. I was especially honored to win 3 awards for this soundtrack. You will soon be able to buy the album in mp3 format on my store, and you can already listen on Spotify and Apple Music. The movie is available on Youtube, depending on the country you live in.

From now on I will be posting more here and we have great things in store for the next few weeks and months!

All the best,

Airwave – Those Silent Hills (JOOF Recordings)

Dance music vanguard of subsonic purity, Airwave returns with Those Silent Hills. The drums are big and effervescent, alongside an unforgettably captivating melody, and celestial and empyrean atmospheres. We quite simply can’t get enough of the sanguine vibe here at the JOOF office.

Uplifting yet underground, Those Silent Hills is an unmistakable dance music wonder.

Airwave – Flying Paper Planes (Bonzai Progressive)

Airwave is back, and he’s here to give us yet another special track, constructed from his wonderfully creative mind. Flying Paper Planes is his latest creation and once again, he knocks it outta the park, as does Rick Pier O’Neil who returns to Bonzai Progressive on the remix. Airwave remains one of electronic music’s greats. His prolific prowess has stood him well throughout his career, earning him great respect among his peers and his worldwide fanbase. For us, it’s always a pleasure when he turns out new material and, no doubt, we can all say we’ve been extremely lucky to have witnessed his talent for over 20 years, here’s to 20 more.

Airwave takes us on a deep progressive journey with his Original Mix. Right from the off, you can feel the abyssal depth, manifested in tough beats and dark basses. Captivating voices slice through the murk, electrifying the atmosphere. The drum track is highly distinctive as an Airwave style, wide, tribalistic and dynamic with an accompanying cinematic trait. Tension builds with each added layer, with the voices playing a big part in the groove. On the break, swirling pads create a hair-raising experience before a rich melodic arpeggio comes through. That deep, rumbling bass remains for the break before the track slams back to full on mode with a flurry of voices. A wonderful piece, enchanting and dark and thought-provoking, not to be missed.

On remix duties we have Rick Pier O’Neil. Another veteran in the world of electronic music, Rick has delivered so many tracks over his long career. His last outing here, Itzamna, proved popular among many, as did his raft of other original and remixes he made for us over the years. Here, Rick lays out a superb, deep and chunky progressive slice. Taking cue from the original, Rick stays in the darker echelons of prog, where thick beats and sub level basses rumbles the bins. Slicing, cosmic FX and gritty notes add intrigue as a delicate arpeggio delivers a sweet melody. Enchanting voices give the track character and combine beautifully with the epic scale of the groove. The break reveals a deep hypnotic streak, complete with synth stabs which take us back to full-on mode for the duration. A top-notch effort that is not to be missed.
