Earlier today I reviewed a nice Freeform mix, and now I’m about to review a mix from 2016 by the Blapps! Posse. Some of you might know the name, and it does ring a bell, but that is all. Don’t know who’s behind the Blapps! Posse, but what I do know is that they made a very interesting Old Skool mix. Well, when I say ‘they’, I mean DJ Aston. And it does contain a few big anthems from the golden age, Acid House-ish. So what are we waiting for?
DJ Aston is one half of the Blapps! Posse. And as I said before, he has mixed a few big anthems together in this hour long mix. Not only by themselves, but also a few you need to know about, if you want to know the roots of everything EDM related. These records are ground breaking, and even to this day they stand the test of time. Play these records at any gig, and people will love them. You can’t sit still. So guess what I’m doing right now? Moving my body to the beats. Yep, the Old Skool has got the power to get everyone moving. Even those who dislike it.

If you have never heard of this posse before, this is a nice introduction. And truth be told, I’m probably a bit thick for not knowing them like all of you do. But it’s never too late to hallucinate, eh?
I have pressed play, and have not stopped listening to this mix.It’s been on for a few hours, and I’m still amazed by the tunes selected by DJ Aston. Nice, smooth, and extremely sexy. I was not aware of their strength as a posse, but they do bring the heat. The records fly through your speakers towards your ears, and there’s no stopping them.
Normally I would go on and on about mistakes, or talk about something uninteresting. But let’s focus on the best record in this mix. I’m deeply in love with ‘Just A Break Freak’ by Break Freak. Big anthem. This is what causes damage in my house right now!
Let’s not underestimate the other records too. So many brilliant records. An hour of pure filth. Old skool finest records, carefully selected and mixed together. The weather is perfect for it, so let’s enjoy it to the max.
