We Europeans are good in many things. But especially two countries, in which many styles have originated, like Hardcore/Gabber, and Jumpstyle. We’ve seen the rise and fall, and with Hardcore the fall meant that it would climb back up again and become bigger than before. Not Jumpstyle, not at all. This sadly faded away after a dreadful period in time for the style. It grew and grew and it became so succesful, it blew itself up by its commercial success, and the media ridiculing it. It was a shamble, the whole thing.

We’ve seen it grow, and all of a sudden it became cool. Too cool. You saw idiots on TV giving Jumpstyle lessons, and idiots basically ridiculing it. Every channel had a show dedicated to it, and like TMF did to Hardcore, it died out. Kids who did not understand the concept of music started liking it, and it did hurt me a lot when it faded away, because I liked Jumpstyle a lot! It became my favourite style for a while, and I wasn’t one of those people actually bothered about jumping, I liked it because the music was good.

Over the years it has made a small comeback, and now it has joined forces with Hardstyle to emerge as Freestyle. But the sound that dominated the early 00s will never appear. Unless you find a mix made by someone who knows a thing or two about Jumpstyle: Pat B.

He kindly added a tracklist, and it made me smile from ear to ear, because I know each artist and each track! Taking me back to my 20s, when music mattered. When music moved me, not like it did when I was a teenager. You start to develop a extra sense, knowing what good music and bad music is. And Jumpstyle, it had its flaws, had also good music. You will see a few good tracks in this tracklist!

Crikey, these tunes are so amazing, these take me right back! F**k the present day music, I’m back in my time machine (made by Professor Barabas) and jumping back into time. Sweet Lord, how I miss this.

Yes, the music was good, and the tunes that Pat B has selected are good. Even the cheesy tunes by Jekyll and Hyde (thank God he didn’t put in DJ Porny, what an embarassement). You can still feel the vibes it generated all over the world!

The tunes are good, so many tunes are just genius! Sadly they aren’t played as often as they should, because they deserve a stage. It’s mainly Freestyle nowadays, in sets they do sometimes play Jumpstyle, but mainly updated Jumpstyle tunes. I wish this kind of Jumpstyle came back, because it was so excellent. And yes, this word isn’t pleasant, but f**k me, this music is eargasmic.

Yes, I was a dork. I liked Jumpstyle, so what?

Pat B’s mix is really tight, and cool. I know I recently reviewed one of his other mixes, but I couldn’t let this slip by. This is just too good, and 10k+ listeners agreed so far. Epic mix, Pat B, epic!

Can’t pick a favourite, it’s too damn hard. It’s like picking your favourite character from Suske & Wiske, you can’t. Even though we all don’t like Sidonia, we still love her (yes, I just said something extremely Belgian, but hey, who cares?)

On dreary days such as today you just want music which hypes you up so much, you’ve got enough energy to get you through the last hours of the weekend. And I think I have found a mix you really want to hear, if you are a fan of Freestyle. This mix is made by DJ Potato, and it’s a fanmix. Technically it’s the second instalment of the fanmix, so if you are digging this, you could browse online and find more mixes by him.

Never heard of DJ Potato before. Never expected someone who would name himself after a potato. Maybe this DJ is so obsessed with potatoes, he named himself after it? Never heard of him before, but then again I’m new to the Freestyle scene, so I still need to learn more and more every day. But in all fairness, those Freestyle mixes are emerging on Soundcloud every day, so I get to know the scene and the artists a bit more every day.

Not only is this just a mix showcasing the DJs skills, but also his own skills as a producer: this mix is packed with DJ Potatoes own records. It’s time for us to check it out, eh? A nice tracklist was added, and it’s full of potatoes….

tracklist

01. Potato – Criminal
02. Potato & Ransom feat MC Creature – Rebel MF
03. Potato & Pat B – Good Times
04. Potato – The Power
05. Potato – Mashed Potatoes 03
06. Dr. Phunk & Potato – It Goes Like
07. Potato – Heartbeats
08. Potato – Street Kombat
09. Potato & Ransom – Get Dirty
10. Potato & Luna – Departure
11. Potato – Mashed Potatoes 02
12. Potato – Turn It Up
13. Potato – Supernatural
14. Potato feat MC Tha Watcher – Beast Mode

A lot of potatoes. And also collaborations with well known names such as Luna, Pat B and Dr. Phunk. If you make records with these legends, your status is everymore changing. Not a bedroom DJ/producer anymore, a potential groundbreaking artist you become.

I’m digging Freestyle more and more each day, and when I pressed play to hear and feel this mix, I was in for a shock: this made my whole body more. Well, bounce on my chair, that’s more like what I did. Digging Potatoes approach to the Freestyle scene.

This mix was carefully mixed, and the tracks are all ace! I’m new to the Potato world, but he’s gained a new fan. To celebrate me becoming a fan, I will serve a dish tonight, containing potatoes.

When you make my girlfriend sing along one song, and she really doesn’t like anything EDM related, you’ve done something I’ve been trying to do for quite a while, and haven’t succeeded. Thanks Potato.

A very dope mix, very entertaining. The mix is tight, the tracks are all good. Got nothing bad to say about this fanmix. Worth checking out right now, and improve your dull Sunday!

On the 11th of March you are probably in Eindhoven, aren’t you? You must be, seeing as you are a Freestyle lover. You are not? What are you doing here? Anyway, you are probably getting excited for this event, seeing as the line-up is immense, and this ‘new’ style is the hottest thing at the moment. The line-up has got the following names: Paul Elstak, The Darkraver, Ruthless, The Viper, Deepack, Kasparov, Rob & MC Joe,Mystery, Nowaxx, and it’s hosted by MC Ruffian.That’s an impressive line-up, and one name on the list that I haven’t mentioned has made a promo mix, to get everyone happy for this awesome event: Genius.

And I know nothing about this DJ. Absolutely nothing. I’m new to the Freestyle world. I know the artists who have been in the game since the early 90s and early 00s, and it could have been that Genius played for many years, but he slipped underneath the radar. Thankfully I found this mix, and now I’m going to indulge myself into this wonderful mix. Yes, it’s looking good, if you should judge the tracklist added to the mix.

I will look into this DJ and will know more about him by the time I’ve finished this review. But here’s the tracklist first.

tracklist

01. Diplo & DJ Snake – Drop
02. DJ Francois & Pat B – Yeah Yeah
03. Bestien – Deep In The Jungle
04. Lethal MG – Youeternal (Ronald V Remix)

22. DJ Duro – Cocaine MF (Alpha2 Remix) 
23. Da Tweekaz & Sub Zero Project – DRKNSS
24. Masters Of Ceremony – Bottoms Up (Digital Punk Remix) 

This is an excellent mix to listen to on a boring Saturday night. Unless you are going on: this could be an excellent mix to listen to when you are on your way to a party. Whatever you do, stay safe. You don’t want to injure yourself and not being able to go to Pussy Lounge’s excellent party.

The music is just good. I’m really digging this new style, which is basically the following combined: Hardstyle, Jumpstyle and Hardcore. Play whatever you like, whenever you like, and do it as hard as you can.

I’ve got nothing bad to mention about this mix. Maybe only track I don’t like, and that’s because it’s got the dreadful and horrible lyrics from ‘Wonderwall’ in it. Boring lyrics. But besides that, Genius has done an excellent job in making a very interesting and very entertaining mix.

Sadly I can’t go to Pussy Lounge – Freestyle Wintergames. But what’s keeping you? Nothing should stop you, in all fairness! Let this mix be your guide, and let Genius get your excitement level up to the max.

Oh yeah, I’ve learned something about Genius: he’s a man. Now, aren’t I a genius?

The year 2016 has finished with a bang, and we can look back at a tremendous year. Music wise it has been kind to us: many styles have progressed forward. And many DJs and labels have made a yearmix, which you can find on Soundcloud very easily. And today I found another one, uploaded by the mighty B2S, and it’s the Pussy Lounge Year mix. Before you go ape and think it’s probably a hipsters place where they can send their cats/kittens to, you are absolutely wrong. Google Pussy Lounge (and I reckon you need the letters B2S behind it, otherwise your internet history will be a tad filthy), and you will find all the information regarding this institution.

Before you turn judgemental: this is all about partying to the max, not just a 100% but 250% and more. Literally re-inventing partying again, and making sure the crowds will have a great time. Yes, there’s a lot of eye candy walking on stages and it does increase not only the atmosphere, but that’s just part of it all. Love, peace and party, that’s the focus of Pussy Lounge (I reckon), and to loose your mind completely. Many have been, and every party has been sold out. Tickets always go extremely quickly: before you blink your eyes they are gone. I tell you, it’s an institution, Pussy Lounge is the place to party.

They bring the smiles back on the dancefloors. Music wise it’s a mish-mash (or however you spell it), a bit of Hardstyle, Hardcore, Gabber, Jumpstyle… basically Freestyle, doing whatever you fancy and play whatever you fancy. And it this mix you can find exactly that!

I love the fact that via parties like this one Jumpstyle still continues, maybe a bit rougher and tougher, but it’s still alive. It might have changed attitude, but it’s good to hear it still going on strong.

See, I told you. This is diverse, just as I said, and it’s good! It sound good, this will enlighten your day. If you are open-minded. If you aren’t, maybe you need to let this mix go. If you like your music to be diverse, quirky and exciting, this is the mix for you!

Don’t know who mixed this, but the person who did this, did it well! You get into the party zone from the first to the last second, don’t you? Especially with records such as ‘Banaan’. Come on, that’s got to be the record of 2016, such a party anthem. You can add that to any set, and it will make the crowd explode. If you don’t know the lyrics, who cares? It’s all about bananas.

There are a lot of anthems in here, and I’m feeling each and every one of them. This makes me wish it was Summer, and I was at a big rave. I can see myself at the Pussy Lounge stage, loosing myself completely. Oh boy, I do miss the Summer.

The mix is tight, the tracks are awesome.. everything is perfect! This is really an excellent yearmix. If this doesn’t move you, you could have the volume too low. Or you are weird. Please don’t be weird. Raise the volume, and ga met die banaan!
