Facebook, I would like to say ‘thank you’, for giving me the opportunity to hear new music every so often. The other day I found a mixtape via this social media platform, a mix made by Kit Hype. And it’s been a while since I last reviewed a mix by him. To be precise last year in May, when he made a mix with The Viper for Foolish Festival. But this time he doesn’t need help from his friends, he can do it on his own. And this ‘Ragga ‘N Rave’ will be a nice addition to the usual crap we listen to during the weekend!
There’s one thing I do not understand, only a handful of plays so far? How’s that possible? That’s about to change: I’m doing my best to get this brand new mixtape into the wider world, because it’s one we need to listen to. What’s actually in this mix? The finest Hard Dance, Hardstyle, Freestyle, Jumpstyle and Rave tunes Kit Hype has got in his possession. From his own mashups to bootlegs to originals.
But what makes this mix so unique? Well, judging the tracklist, it does contain records you wouldn’t normally find crammed into a 47 minute long mix. But Kit Hype was careful with his selection, and his mixing is on spot, and he made this mix worth while, and all the records blend in smoothly.

Yep, this is an unusual mix. It might seem that Kit Hype just does whatever he wants, but he’s on a mission: to mess up your head, and keeps you moving wherever you are. I am currently sitting at home, and going to do the dishes, and I can say in all honesty that the volume goes right up, and I will wake up the neighbourhood.
I love Freestyle mixes. I don’t see them very often (and when I do, it doesn’t contain a tracklist, which is a huge bummer: I don’t review without a tracklist).So it was nice of Facebook to show this mix to me. You can also check this out on Kit Hype’s own Facebook fanpage, where it’s added as a video.
This does contain slammers, and a few weird records. But highly enjoyable. The best record in this mix is ‘Charge Up’. Even though it’s played short, it will leave a long lasting impression.
He starts off the mix with his own record, and goes on to entertain us with the dopest tracks available. And who would have expected Snoop Dogg and Dre, or Armin van Buuren, to be in a Freestyle mix? Or even Cascada? But that’s just the thing: you are free to play whatever you like, as long as it fits. And it does.
Not a fan of ‘I Like To Bootleg’. The original version winds me right up! Probably the most overused 90s vocal ever!
But anyway, get this mixtape right now. Go to Soundcloud and press play! Let’s get the weekend started!
