When you browse for hours online and you find mixes so dope, you can’t stay offline. I found one, which will blow your mind away, and this time it’s no joke. It’s a set by DJ Pat B, a familiar name, recorded last year at Reverze Flashback, and it’s a 45 minute long set, with 88 tracks…wait, before we continue, let’s underline the 88 tracks. 88 tracks! That’s impressive. That’s what got my attention in the first place, because of the awesome tracklist. Second of all I became interested in a diverse mix. I’ve been hearing Pat B bits and bobs here and there, but never really heard a liveset. Well, today things are about to change!

I was waiting for a good Jumpstyle mix, but to find a set by Pat B, with a shit load of Jumpstyle tracks in it, I wasn’t ready for that. But not only can you find Jumpstyle tracks, but also a few Hardstyle tracks, and also an added bonus, which I will talk about in a minute. For now let’s focus on the liveset, which was recorded at Reverze last year, but it was called ‘Deception’, and yet this mix is called ‘Flashback’? I don’t get it, but maybe that’s because I’ve never been there. Maybe it’s the after party?

Anyway, however you look at this set, you’ve got to embrace the big task that Pat B had, to mix so many great tracks together. And the one bonus I was talking about earlier: you can hear the crowd interacting with Pat B. I seriously love that! The crowd should always be heard on each liveset. And when you hear the crowd loose themselves as much as they did during Pat B’s set, you know he did an excellent set!

Here we go, finger arthritis (or however you spell it) will happen….

And after typing this I had to take a short break. Sweet Lord, this has hurt my fingers.

Pat B does it extremely well, and I’ve got to give the man all the credits he should get. This is an effortless set, and how the hell he did it is still a mystery to me. How can you mix so good and not make one mistake? I haven’t spotted one, and I’ve been listening to this mix again and again!

I love the crowd’s interaction, and I love the records. All of them. Yes, even the ‘Cherie’ one. This is to me as great as the ‘Sensation White & Black Megamix 2002′, during which you heard the crowd screaming out loud too, and you would hear the finest tunes coming through your speakers.

This had everything I wanted, this has seriously ended my weekend in a good way. A smile from ear to ear. Pat B is a boss, a serious boss. Who needs cake throwing idiots or f**king celebrities mixing when you’ve got Pat B?

Download this mix right now, and burn it onto a disc / plug your phone onto the computer and add it to the memory card. This is a set you really want to hear when you are on your way to work the next 5 days!

Best track? Can’t pick. How can you pick? Too many to choose from. Aargh.

It’s Saturday, and what’s the most logical thing to do? Correct, chill out and listen to your favourite style. Mine is obviously Hardcore, and I woke up especially for this mix (not really, couldn’t sleep really). Ran to my computer, turned it on, and been listening to it since. Blasting out the Hardcore at 8 o’clock on a Saturday morning. How lovely can life be? A nice cup of coffee and breakfast, and my life’s superb.

This liveset was recorded last year at ‘Welcome To The Jungle’, and the DJ in question is DJ Cruze, accompanied by MC Frikshon behind the microphone. It’s a short set, only 50 minutes long, but it contains a lot of amazing tracks by well established names. It’s mainly focussed on the happy side of Hardcore, from Dutch to UK Happy Hardcore can be found in this mix. And I think the tracklist will please you as much as it did me.

tracklist

01. Charly Lownoise & Mental Theo – Wonderful Days
02. Hopscotch – Midnight Express (Steamtrain)
03. Silk Cuts 6 – Soul Of An Angel
04. Force & Styles – All Over
05. Demo & DNA – Wildstyle
06. DJ Dodgy – The Stomper
07. Critical Mass – Burning Love (DJ Ham Hard Mix) 
08. DJ Seduction – So In Love (DNA Remix) 
09. Dougal & Mickey Skeedale – Don’t Go Breaking My Heart
10. Silk Cuts 8 – Forgiven
11. Scott Brown – Healing Mind
12. Force & Styles – Follow Me
13. Paul Elstak – Luv U More

A very good looking tracklist, and it’s funny to see that the first and last track and the one exactly in the middle is proper Dutch, and the others are British. It’s like he planned that, and it worked.

The tracks are good. They brought back some good memories from the 90s, dancing the night away. Not every track is liked by yours truly, don’t like ‘Midnight Express’, but that’s just me. It’s a personal thing.

MC Frikshon does his best to hype up the crowd, and he does it well (as usual). His voice can be clearly heard during this recording, sometimes you hear him better than the music. The quality of the recording isn’t really great sadly, you can still feel the vibe, but it lacks the oomph, if you know what I mean.

Great tracks, great MC, shite recording lol. Could be an issue on my side, or maybe it is indeed not good. But don’t let that fool you: go and listen to this liveset, and let Cruze take you on a cruise through time (see what I did there?)

Now this is an event I really want to go to. Have seen many promo videos of it online, and each and every video has caught my attention. For many years I’ve been a fan of Drum and Bass, and Jungle, and what better place you can release your love for these two styles than Jungle Mania. To me this is one of those events you need to go to before you die, just to capture the atmosphere and the music. And I’m not the only one who’s intrigued by it: the people who have been have rated it 5 out of 5 stars on Facebook. I don’t know when the next event is, but in the future I’ll do my best to get there, and experience it.

For now I’ve got one set to listen to, which captures the night. DJ Twista and MC Deefa’s set from last year’s Jungle Mania – Carnival Special. Recently I reviewed a mix done by Twista, now it’s time for a liveset. You can heard the fans going absolutely insane, and in all fairness, if you see the tracklist you will know why the people went ape shit! DJ Twista picked the right tracks, and they kept the ravers on the dancefloor going through the night.

Oh, just found out that on the 1st of April they are celebrating 24 years of Jungle Mania (1993-2017). And Twista’s going to be there too. The line-up looks sick. Damn, I wish I could go, I really wanted to go…

20. Taktix – It’s The Way (Serum Remix) 
21. Glamour Gold – Feel

This is a dope ass tracklist. I know it’s Sunday morning, and we normally listen to chilled  back music, but come on, let this mix destroy your speakers for once. Your neighbours will thank you, press play right now!

Loved the pace, loved the tracks. And this mix only had 149 listens? How’s that possible?

Twista and Deefa destroyed the dancefloor. MC Deefa (never heard of him before) does his thing well, and gets the crowd hyped up, the way an MC should get the crowd hyped up. No pull-ups, or anything similar, but just pounding beats coming through the speakers.

This combination is one I really should look out for. Twista has done an amazing job at Jungle Mania, and the result is an astonishing liveset. If this doesn’t move you, you’ve probably have your speakers off, or you have an ear infection and can’t hear anything properly. But this liveset is a bad ass one.

Check out this liveset, and be intrigued. I must go to Jungle Mania, I must! If this is what people experience throughout the event, it’s heaven on earth…..

I can’t pick a favourite track, they are all good! Wicked set, wicked tracks!

Wow, it’s been weeks since I last heard a proper Hardstyle mix. And I reckon it’s been months since I last heard a proper Hardstyle liveset! Why don’t they pop up more often on my timeline? I need more Hardstyle. Yes, Rawstyle is good, Hardcore excellent, but sometimes you just want to get something different, and Hardstyle is exactly that. And today I’ve found a liveset which is 4 years old, but still fresh as a daisy. A set done by the well known Atmozfears. Yeah, you are probably a massive fan. I bet you are and you’ve already heard this mix a million times.

Well, I haven’t. This only popped on my timeline today, and I thought I might give it a go, and I wasn’t disappointed! Two great things: a) it has a tracklist and b) it’s a free download. I am Dutch, and we are cheapskates. So everything free is always something we grab with both hands. That’s our nature. But would you leave this mix aside?

This was recorded at Freaqshow 2012, which was held on the 31st of December, and if you were there you probably had an awesome NYE. Listening to it I wouldn’t be surprised if you were absolutely knackered the week after the event, because this set literally blew my mind away. I don’t know much about Atmozfears (at least I’m honest) but I’ve seen the name in several mixes before. But this is my proper introduction into the wonderful and atmozpheric world. And it’s really good!

Tracklist was kindly provided, so why not share it with you all?

tracklist

01. Atmozfears – Just Let Go
02. David Guetta & Nicky Romero feat Sia – Wild Ones Two (Wildstylez Bootleg) 
03. Atmozfears – Another Day

05. Various Artists – Just As Easy Again
06. In-Phase & Atmozfears feat Yuna-X – Time Stands Still
07. JDX feat Kelly Q – You & Me (Atmozfears Remix/Bootleg) 
08. Atmozfears – Restart
09. D-Block & S-Te-Fan – Sound Of Thunder
10. Various Artists – Huh? (Atmozfears Mashup) 
11. Noisecontrollers – Astral (Audiofreq Remix) 
12. JDX feat Sarah Maria – Live The Moment
13. The Propher – Really Don’t Care (Atmozfears Remix) 
14. Atmozfears – Connected

16. Atmozfears – Living For The Future
17. Wildstylez – True Rebel Freedom (Defqon.1 Australia 2012 Anthem) 

I might not know much about Atmozfears, but I am a fan. This mix blew me completely away. So many great anthems. I know Hardstyle is still around and it still draws huge crowds, but it’s so rough and tough. This music back in 2012 was much more melodic and beautiful, a bit calmer, and just perfect for me!

Seriously, I can’t mention anything bad! The tracks are spot on, the crowd is abolutely blown away by Atmozfears, and so am I. The tunes are carefully selected, and if you don’t know who Atmozfears is, let this mix be your guide, like it was mine. I’m seriously digging the music alot, a huge shame that it took me 4 years to get to know about this liveset.

The only thing which annoyed me was the constant announcement that it was live aired on a radio station. That’s all!

The music is simply astonishing. All, and I do mean all the tracks are dope. This is the way I like my Hardstyle. No mucking about, get me straight into paradise. Melodic and euphoric Hardstyle, and Atmozfears set has lifted me up into Heaven. Seriously, if this doesn’t do that to you, you are insane. And you should seek treatment.

Atmozfears, I am your fan. And I will browse through everything you’ve uploaded onto Soundcloud. I need more Atmozfears. But who doesn’t?
