The next mix I’m about to review is one made by the legendary Andy Whitby! Now, normally I would write down a short section, explaining the artist, but for Andy Whitby it isn’t necessary. EVERYONE knows who he is. From Australia to Nigeria, from Holland to Brasil, everyone knows this man. The man who pushes Hard Dance forward, be it via mixes or his recently released album. This man breathes Hard Dance. Imagine a scene without Andy Whitby, life would be dull!
When I saw the mix for the first time, I thought it was only for people who do workouts. I got annoyed by the title: why only those people? But after reading the info section, it became clear to me that even I, the one who never went to a gym, can listen to it. And that made me smile. I am not fit, or have a six pack, but I can still listen to this Summer mix by the mighty Andy Whitby!!
This mix is filled with Hard Dance smashers, and carefully mixed by Andy Whitby. You know it’s going to be a good mix if you see who made it. Andy is the master of mixes, never have I heard a dull mix by this man.

This is a very tasty looking tracklist, it has to be said. And it does have a nice build-up.
Andy knows how to please a crowd, be it in front of him, or sitting at home. And you don’t even need to go to a gym, you can sit down like I am, and enjoy it. I have, as always. Andy never disappoints.
The tracks are good, carefully selected and as I said before, the build up is good. And a bit diverse too, but not fully diverse. There’s a lot of Andy and Audox stuff in here. But that’s not a bad thing!
Which track made me bounce the hardest? Well, easy to pick: ‘Save The Day’. Big anthem, big and famous vocal section.
Got to take away points for having tracks in here which include Lil Jon. This man is as talented as a bag of crap. And useless as one too! I really dislike his ‘skills’, billions of people have got more skills than this man. The track itself might be good, but to hear this man do his thing is the thing that kills my mood.
Andy, you are a hero. And if you (reader) agree with me, why not check out his latest album? Check it out via Andy’s Facebook Fanpage. I really think that Andy deserves the biggest stage at each and every event (but not at Justin Bieber in concert). This mix will improve my Summer!
Still not in shape. Ah, who cares?
