It’s that time of the year again: promo mixes are thrown at us like sweets at Halloween. More mixes are uploaded during the darker days of the year, due to the fact that most DJs and producers are back in the studios. The Summer has ended, and for once I’m happy: the heat was killing me. Also the tunes being released killed me (some in a good way, some in a bad way). Time for some new music, and I think I found a very nice mix you should all listen to, if you like Oldskool being updated to the present day. The Flashback Project is a project (duh) focussed on bringing the Breaks to the masses, using a lot of Oldskool tunes, updating them to the present year. You will know bits and bobs in each tunes once you’ve pressed play.
The Flashback Project a.k.a. Flash Cats (isn’t that some kind of meme?) has been delivering music via Soundcloud for quite a while, and I’ve been reviewing his music for the same length of time, and I’ve been drawn to his music from the moment I heard a Flashback/Flash Cats mix for the first time. This man has a passion, and it’s quite contagious. Not many artists keep the Oldskool sound alive, maybe make one or two tunes and that’s it, but Flashback isn’t one of those artists. Check his other mixes if you don’t believe me!
I was actually planning on writing a review on his September mix, but then this mix was released. So, to be a bit up to date, I decided to give this mix a go. Is it worth writing so many words?
01. Flash Cats – Love Begins
02. Zedd & Grey – Adrenaline (Otter’s Lit Af Re-Dub)
03. Flash Cats – Light Up
04. DJ Hybrid – Get Hype
05. DJ Fixx – Drizzle
06. Flash Cats – Get Ready
07. Adam F – Circles (Nixon vs TobyONE Re-fix)
08. Dee – Takeshi
09. Flash Cats vs D’Silva – Make Some Noise
If you’ve got a good sound system at home, or in your car, press play right now! The music will demolish your car/house, which is always a good thing!
The mix is carefully made by The Flashback Project, and it contains 9 amazing tracks! This has made me smile from ear to ear, and it’s been a while since I last heard a proper Breaks mix. It’s such an underrated sound, people like it a lot, but not a lot is being produced/mixed. Thank you The Flashback Project for uploading this amazing mix!
Anything bad about this mix? Erm… not hing if I’m honest. I tried to find something to moan about, but that’s simply impossible: this mix is just perfect.
What’s my favourite track? ‘Love Begins’ is a quality anthem, got piano bits in it! Who doesn’t want to hear that?
Check out The Flashback Project on Soundcloud and on Facebook, and indulge yourself into his world of music. Let me warn you: once you indulge yourself, you will become addicted! The music is just too damn good.
