This specially produced album was a closer look into the world of Laurent Veronnez, it brought out his musical genius in many ways. Combining lots of different styles showed us that this guys still has much more to offer. We first saw Sagittaire in 2006 with 1982 and In My Faze, and both of these tracks feature on the continuous mix within the release. It would be seven years before we saw another one from this guise. In 2013 we got a new, upgraded Sagittaire with One Twenty Five.
Laurent Véronnez, Ludovic Meyer and Peter Schiettekatte made up the progressive trance trio Cape Town and were responsible for a string of top trance tracks in the early to mid 2000’s. Aviateur brought together the trio’s hits under one roof to the delight of many. There can be no doubt that Cape Town created some timeless classics that still resonate today.
Remix version of the original album of the same name, this one incorporated a fine selection of remixes that focused on trance and progressive trance with a nice helping of ambient thrown in. Wonderfully put together to create a sublime listening experience, the discerning collector found this one irresistible.
If you’re a progressive trance/trance lover then this album is an absolute must have. 11 of the very best in trance from Planisphere aka Laurent Veronnez and George Petkidis. Spanning 6 years of releases from this duo, 1998 – 2004, they covered everything and cemented themselves as top artists in their field. A seriously fantastic addition for any collector.
Georges Petkidis and Laurent Véronnez are the men responsible for all the greatness that Planisphere has given over the years. Cyborganic was the pinnacle of all this and it was also an album that so enriched the progressive trance sound, a sound that lots of up-and-coming producers aspire to as well as already established artists. The album is a mixture of original works and remixes for other artists which shows off the diversity of this duo. A worthwhile addition to any collector.
Another pivotal moment in Airwave’s career came in 2008 with the release of the highly anticipated album Touareg which came packed to the gills with fresh new hits and a full complement of revamped classics. The superb Urban Touareg resides here and remains one of Airwave’s personal favourites. Save Me, Lightspeed, Above The Sky, Division Bell and Sky Blues all get a 2008 makeover here to the delight of many.
Airwave’s 2005 album Trilogique was a defining moment for the status he held within the scene, already regarded with legendary status due to his total commitment to his sound, here he catapulted his profile further reaching a greater audience all over the world. Already heralded as a great, this album solidified that sentiment in concrete. A three part journey filled with all sorts of hidden gems that both surprised and astounded. The title track, Trilogique, got a single release in 2007 on Bonzai Trance Progressive and was pimped out with some fantastic remixes.
The Trance Edition is by far one of the most enigmatic collection of works by a single artist. Featuring instant classics such as Sunday Break, Hello Sunshine, People Just Don’t Care and the immortal When Things Go Wrong 2005. This one also carries collabs with the likes on Markus Schulz, Antidote (with Marnik Braeckevelt), Jon O’Bir and Armin Van Buuren.
