These last couple of days have been quite difficult for me. I really wanted to quit reviewing. I don’t know what caused it, but I wasn’t happy. I wanted to terminate my blog permanently, but before I did, I wanted to know if anyone agreed with my opinion. Clearly they persuaded me to continue, unless I was unhappy doing reviewing. I wasn’t. So I was drawn back into the wonderful world of reviewing, and have I got a mix you should listen to! One of the greatest mixes ever made! And that’s not something I say often (I do say it every couple of months, but thankfully not every week, otherwise my job would be boring!).
The latest mix you can find on the world’s greatest reviewing website (ahum…) is made by DJ Louk. And after a.. let’s say a weird moment in my reviewing life.. it’s good to start with such a smashing mix. It gave me faith in what I was doing, and why people should actually listen to what I’ve got to say!
DJ Louk is a DJ I’ve been following for quite a while, and he has made good mixes, but his latest promo mix (promoting his own skills obviously) is one epic mix! This is how I want to hear a Techno mix! In all fairness: I’ve been listening to a lot of Techno mixes by the greatest DJs on God’s given Earth, but no mix can compete to this! And even though it’s a bold claim by someone who’s got no skills whatsoever… but it’s the truth!
This is how a mix should sound like. Beginning DJs, learn from this! This is beautiful, magical, pure music. Quality!

There you go. A jam packed tracklist, with a beautiful mix attached to it. This is a nice package you need to download now, because you won’t find anything this good on Soundcloud!
I’ve had journeys to and from work, and they’ve been pleasant to say the least. This has been so good, this made me want to stop on the motorway, get out of the car and start raving, putting my hands in the air, and giving it all I’ve got. Seriously, this is why I do reviewing: to find those hidding jewels and share them with same minded people!
Louk had created this epic and beautiful mix, and it has entertained me from the first to the last second. Even the ending is so good: always end with a very relaxing and mellow-kind of track. And that’s what he did. And what he put in between the first and the last second is just beyond belief!
My favourite track…. that’s a no brainer! ‘I Hate Models – Daydream’. Someone called this the tune of 2016, but that’s not enough credit: this should be the tune of the decade! If you are into NASA and space exploration like I am, this is the tune you expect to hear whenever you listen to a documentary! This, to me, is the essence of not only Techno but also Acid House. If this doesn’t move you internally, you are a non-music lover. Get off this planet.
‘Daydream’… I can talk about this track forever and ever. Louk, great choice, putting this in your already smashing mix!
Louk should be praised for this mix. Seriously good, and a good representation of what the scene has to offer. And the offer today…. is LOUK!
