Soundcloud is filled with billions of mixes. It has to be a billion at least. Which means it’s my kind of heaven. Not many mixes are really liked by me as such, the majority is EDM stuff I really don’t fancy, or mixed really badly, but sometimes you find a mix, and before you press play you already judge the mix by a) the name or b) the artist. In this case I saw the name ‘Mark Archer’ and I immediately assumed that it was an oldskool Rave set, filled with dark and nasty tracks. Oh, how wrong was I? This is the complete opposite. If you were looking for a mix which would astonish you, here it is!
No Oldskool Rave music, but lovely Techno/House music. Calm and sophisticated music, music they only play at clubs where you can’t get a bog standard Coke, but only something in a Martini glass. Clubs where something so normal gets called something so posh (and costs you 10 times more). This music suits this club beautifully. But this isn’t what I was expecting, in all fairness. I would be thinking of Oldskool stuff, so Mark’s mix astonished me once I’ve pressed play. And it was indeed a surprise, but a pleasant surprise.
The tunes he picked are all unknown to me, but once I’ve heard them, they’ve entered my heart forever! Beautiful tracks!

Do you know any of these names? I’ve never heard of any of them, don’t even know how to pronounce half of them. Gnork? Bakradze? Anyhow, it’s all about the music, and the music…oh… the music is heavenly!
RIOT wrote underneath the mix that the first track was one to listen to, and absorb it. Well, they were right. ‘Blorp 93′ is definately one of the greatest records ever made! So much depth, full of emotions… basically everything you want music to be. This track has blown me away, and I thought that this was the best bit of the mix….
I was wrong. The whole mix is just superb. Quality tunes, and mixed together seemlessly. Nothing to mention which could affect the outcome of this mix, there’s nothing, and I do mean nothing, wrong with this mix. I’ve heard several Mark Archer mixes in the past, and they were all Oldskool mixes, but this tops everything. This is quality over quantity.
I can not point out how awesome these tunes are. ‘Blorp 93’ is just magnificent. But even ‘Gemini Lounge’, or ‘Flight’, or ‘Ion 2a’. You’ve got to hand it to Mark, he knows which tracks to pick, and how to please the listeners.
Yep, it’s a fact. Mark Archer is a God. If you can listen to this mix without shedding a tear, you are inhumane. This will create emotions you haven’t felt in a long time. Breathtaking. Stunning. Excellent!
