The perks of being a reviewer are tremendous. You get sent mixes, t-shirts, CDs, etc. And today I’m going to talk to you about a mix made by MrPanda. Yes, the name might sound familiar, and you’ve guessed it: it’s not the first time this name appears on my website. So you are in for a misleading treat. Why am I saying that? Well, that’s because this is a preview, and the actual mix ain’t being released yet: it will be released on the 11th of February, so keep an eye out for this mix via MrPanda’s Facebook page.
This mix is so exclusive, I completely forgot about it. I do mean it, MrPanda sent me the link, and because I was so busy, I forgot about it. Thankfully he asked me to listen to it, and I’m happy that I did. I’m sorry MrPanda, I truly am. It’s not often (sadly) that I get to listen to previews, so I should embrace them with open arms.
As you all know, I’m a huge fan of diversity. And MrPanda always delivers awesome mixes, not bound to one style or one genre. And in this mix he touches several styles, such as UK Hardcore, Drum & Bass, Freeform and more. Definately worth a listen (once it’s out)….

Diversity is what matters, and it’s what you get in this mix. Yes, the main focus is obviously UK Hardcore, but it turns out it blends in nicely with other styles such as Drum & Bass and Freeform and Powerstomp. And MrPanda knows how to grab your attention.
He used 4 decks (if I am correct) for this mix, and it’s quite impressive. The tracks he has selected are not the easiest tracks to mix together, but it sounds effortlessly. A few tiny mistakes here and there, but it’s really good what the end result is.
There are some slammers in here, some serious dancefloors smashers! ‘Let It Roar’, ‘Party Like Us’, ‘Anything For You’, ‘Killah Sound’, ‘This’, ‘I Can See It’, but my favourite track in this mix … well, there are three:’Give My Love’, ‘Feeder’ and ‘It’s Gonna Get’.
A couple of tracks aren’t my cup of tea (of coffee, whatever you prefer). But all in all a very entertaining mix, and if you want to hear a really diverse and to be fair, quite sexy mix, you don’t need to look any further. Just like MrPanda on Facebook and on the 11th you will get a notification about this mix being aired on Soundcloud!
Ps. Obviously once it’s been released, I will add it underneath this review. But for now you’ve got to wait!
