As usual, I do browse a lot and had a look on Soundcloud, to see if there were new mixes for me to listen to. I found a couple, sadly no tracklist, so that’s a definate no. I found one, which is an unusual mix, made by someone I’ve never heard of: Father Dude. Not really a proper mix, more a teasing mix. Filled with own productions, so if you have never heard of him before (like me), it’s a good introduction. Father Dude, who’s he? There isn’t much info on his Facebook page, it only says that he sings to Epic R&B, Chill and Electronic, he’s a vocalist, and he’s from New York. That’s all. So let’s sit back and see if his mixtape is any good.

After hearing it for the first time, I was blown away! Such a mellow mixtape! Exactly what I was looking for. Father Dude sings throughout the whole mixtape, and his voice is quite soothing. Rich voice, sings right from his heart. A unique voice, and I do love it. Expect only the best, and you won’t be disappointed. I haven’t heard of Father Dude before, but I will from now on follow him. He has got such a good voice, pleasant to listen to. If you want to hear how he sounds like, you can and should go to Soundcloud, and press play.

Tracklist is quite important,isn’t it?

WOW! Normally I would say ‘wow’, but this time it’s worth to be written in capital letters. This wasn’t something I was expecting to hear when I started my computer this morning!

Absolutely fantastic mixtape! This is such a fresh sound, unique and, if you are a woman, quite sexy. The tracks are solid, and Father Dude’s voice fits each track perfectly! I’m not talking technical terms, I am not a vocalist-expert, but I do know that Father Dude’s voice is the next best thing! Fantastic voice.

He makes each track much more beautiful. He gives each track character. Normally I wouldn’t listen to this, but I gave it a go, and now I’m hooked. This is beautiful.

There are too many great tracks in this mixtape, I can not pick one favourite. I can say that I don’t like the last track at all. That’s because I know the original, and I really don’t like the original at all. I forgot who did it, but it’s one of those tracks that will haunt you all day. Not a good track. Sorry Father Dude, but no version can make this dreadful track better.

A good mixtape. Serious stuff. This is the perfect mixtape to listen to when you are driving in your convertible on the highway, towards a sunny destination. Or when you are sipping a cocktail on the beach. You can listen to this when you are at the North Pole, but it doesn’t have the same effect. I will listen to this when I’m driving to work, and I reckon the journey is going to be epic.

Father Dude. A name you should bookmark!

It’s a common fact that most of you already know, I’m a huge Sc@r fan. And who isn’t? The hardest girl in the UK Hardcore scene has dominated the scene for many years now, with many international gigs, but also weird gigs too. Last year she performed at the Color Run in London, and I had no idea what this party was all about. It’s about colours, obviously. But the way they raved, is quite unusual. Covered in coloured powder? I had to look for video’s to believe it, and yes, it’s true! This concept is all about getting people in shape? They seem to run first, and after running (and being covered in colourful powder) they party until their feet get tired. Sc@r dominated the Color Run with her UK Hardcore liveset, and if you go on her page, you will find pictures and videos of her smashing out the Hardcore. Thousands of ravers stood in front of her, and danced/raved. And this year she’s back!

I don’t know if she’s going to play UK Hardcore again, seeing as this new mix is filled with Electro House tunes. Hope we haven’t lost Sc@r, we need her influence within the scene. But it’s a nice mix, a nice and summery mix. Something we don’t hear often from Sc@r. Quite unusual, but still nice to hear. She’s really versatile, and even though I’m not a fan of getting powdered on, I wish I could be there, dancing until my feet won’t carry me anymore.

Why isn’t Sc@r covered in powder? She’s quite colourful, but not powdered. This year you all should go on a mission: get coloured on, and make sure that Sc@r is covered too!

The tracklist… it’s a short one. On her Soundcloud page it says that the 6th track is Sigma, but I reckon it’s a mistake. So here’s the correct tracklist.

01. Sub Focus – Turn Back Time
02. Clean Bandit feat Jess Glynne – Rather Be
03. Faul & Wad Ad vs Pnau – Changes
04. Calvin Harris – Summer
05. David Guetta & Showtek – Bad
06. Martin Garrix – Animals
07. The Chainsmokers – #Selfie
08. Kernkraft 400 – Zombie Nation (Remix) 

A wonderful mix by the legendary Sc@r. If this is what she’s going to play at the Color Run, make sure you bring your danceshoes with you!

The tunes she selected are all sunny and very interesting. Not her usual genre, but it’s still good! This should persuade you to get your running shoes out of the cupboard, and check when the event will take place this year in the U.K. Click here, and look when you can see and hear Sc@r, play… erm… or UK Hardcore or Electro House. You won’t be dissappointed, you will love her set.

I wonder if Sc@r runs too?

A cool and short mix. Sc@r’s so versatile, you can’t stop loving her enthusiasm for every kind of music. Go and download this bad boy now!
