Some DJs do need an introduction, some do need no introduction at all! One of those DJs is Joey Beltram, a pioneer from the early days! This man has done so much for music in general, it’s unbelievable. This man has shaped the scene with his pioneering music, and even to this day he keeps on pushing his love and dedication forwards, spreading his passion for music. When I grew up as a young lad during the 90s, Joey Beltram was there. He penetrated my eardrums with his tunes, and I would like to say thank you for making the 90s memorable.
Many DJs who were once great faded away, or sadly passed away. Not Joey Beltram, he keeps on doing what only he does best. And when it comes to Techno, only one can satisfy the people, and that is Joey. His music has obviously changed from quite ‘basic’ to well composed music. Back in the days it was all about Roland’s and Casio’s and Jupiters, but today it’s all about software and some hardware. Has that changed the strength of the music? Not really. It’s not how it’s made, it’s all about the impact it has on a crowd. And to me music is timeless, and I couldn’t care less if it was made on an old Mac PC, or a brand spanking new one. Music is music, and what Joey has created in the past is timeless!
He has made this mix for Transmissions, and is syndicated worldwide by Syndicast (never heard of that before?). And there’s also an added bonus: a nice tracklist. Feast your eyes on this beauty!

Seriously, after listening to this mix at least 10 times it proves to me again and again: during the 90s he was a superstar and he has never lost his touch! My God, this mix is tight! From the lighter side of Techno to the quite dark and edgy stuff!
In this section I would normally write something bad, but I can’t: it’s a mix by Joey Beltram, one of the world’s finest producers. He still knows how to get the people at home hyped up, and at the moment this 33 year old man is bopping his head and moving his body and feels like he’s 12 again, when he heard Joey Beltram for the first time.
My God, it’s good to see these pioneers being recognised for their contribution to music in general, and I reckon it will be one of the best played mixes of all time. Or at least the most enjoyed mix on Soundcloud ever. Name one mix better than this one? Name one! And don’t pick one because the DJ is your mate, pick one on quality. That’s right, you failed.
Joey Beltram, a pioneer, a legend, a superstar. And above all: a music lover.
This mix has made my birthday a very special one. So good, it’s frightening. This is quality, pure quality. Keep up the good work, mr Beltram, we salute you for your experience, knowledge and dedication. I will made sure that I’m dancing tonight, tomorrow and many days to come to this mix!
