Bright Lines as it’s name suggests is the complete opposite of it’s dancefloor partner, ‘Dark Lines‘. Still it’s almost impossible to entirely dissociate it. The reason for that is simple to explain. Bright Lines is as much as Dark Lines part of a Story, that started out with those intricate soundscapes, those non-dancefloor tracks, and the need for Laurent aka Airwave, to explore unexplored territories for him.
For that purpose, Airwave decided to collaborate with many artists known for their passion about electronic music: DJs, electronic freaks, turntablists, respected producers, trance vocalists, and lyricists with a passion for dance…
An improbable 15-tracker that will not leave you cold, a good example of what to do in the digital era, rejecting boundaries of styles and genres, habits. Most obvious while listening to Bright Lines is the omnipresence of a specific 90’s sound prior to the emergence of format into electronic music. And finally, extra bits of life and humanity were purposely put in those 15 pieces of music that took in total almost 3 years to complete.
For sure, Bright Lines will be a ‘Love / Hate’ thing for many, but its humanity and its imperfection will finally reveal it’s true essence. Simple music that doesn’t cheat.
A true piece of music made by true and down to earth people. Ladies and Gentlemen, here’s ‘Bright Lines’:

Bright Lines’ opener is one of the first sketches and took about 11 months to achieve completion. An example on how to break the number one rule in dance music: 4/4. A perfect summary of everything that’s present in ‘Bright Lines’.
