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!

It’s been a long time since I last heard a Louk mix. Maybe a bit too long, if I’m brutally honest. Don’t even think I’ve got any mixes of him on this new website? Nah, don’t think so. It must have been years ago, and I feel dreadful. But thank God I found a new mix we can all listen to and appreciate. It was his set at the mighty Defqon.1 in the Netherlands ofcourse, where he played a majestic set. A Hard Trance/Hardstyle/Tech Trance set. According to the information provided, it was his first international booking, and it also happened on his 24th birthday. How cool is that, to play at Defqon.1 is already a dream coming true, and also to celebrate your birthday on stage, doing what you love doing?

This set already reached the 86th position in the Hardstyle chart on Mixcloud, which is an achievement, seeing as it was only uploaded 3 days ago. But there’s a catch: no download. You can only listen to it when you are on your phone or behind your computer. Well, that’s not really a worry, is it? You can still appreciate this brutal set, which will blow your mind away. It’s Louk, playing at Defqon.1! What else do you need, or want?

Really digging the set, it’s what I was after to get me through this weekend. A very enjoyable set by someone who should get his own event. Louk, the Festival. Wouldn’t that be another dream coming true? He deserves it, just listen to this set and you will know why he deserves his own event!

A beautiful mix, isn’t it? Louk’s set from Defqon.1 is definately one you want and need to get you through the weekend. A smashing mix, I can imagine the crowd loosing themselves when Louk entered the stage and dominated this event. He wasn’t the only one who played at this event, but he must have left a long lasting impression on those who witnessed him!

I can talk for hours and hours, but I will not. I think you just need to listen to this liveset, and enjoy it as much as I have. From the first moment to the last this kept me moving. Something different, sometimes a bit quirky, but highly enjoyable. The weather ain’t good this weekend, but there’s only one cure that might get you through this weekend, and I’m guessing you already know what it is: this wonderful liveset.

Louk, you deserve your own event. Or maybe your own stage at Defqon.1. The Louk stage. With Louk styled dancers, Louk styled lights and Louk styled speakers, everything should be focussed on Louk. Louk is a legend. Powerful set. Let the weekend start with a bang! Thanks Louk.
