When was it when I last reviewed a Nizzle mix? Not that long ago, was it? I can’t remember, see so many mixes fly by. But for those who have been waiting for it, he’s back with a brand new mix series, called ‘Homegrown and Potent’, alongside Unity MC. At first I thought it was a documentary about how to grow your own plants. You know, I am not wrong, because the picture does show something unusual lol. No plants like those in my garden. Anyway, it’s not about plants, it’s about homegrown acts, giving them a stage they deserve.

The first MC to join this mix series is MC Octane. No introduction needed. Alongside him they made an hour long mix, with tracks by artists such as: Nizzle, Stonebank, Sy & Unknown, Scoot, Technikore, Macks Wolf, etc. You get a mix with three well established names from a wonderful scene, and 23 amazing tracks that will enlighten your Sunday. It won’t be a dull weekend, especially as most of you lot will have the Monday off (I don’t, sadly).

So what can you expect? Madness. And banging tunes coming through your speakers. Only uploaded yesterday, so the plays are low at the moment, but let’s get the plays right up, right now! This mix deserves more credits, so share it with anyone you know. Oh, it’s not downloadable, which is a pity, really wanted to burn this onto a disc and play it whilst driving to work tomorrow (when you all chillax)…. ah well. Let me show you the tracklist, and you will listen to it immediately!

tracklist

01. M-Project & Havoc – Searching For The Stomp

21. Jake Swann & 4Man – The Journey
22. Stonebank – The Only One (Darren Styles Remix) 
23. Sy & Unknown feat Lou Lou – Caught Up In Your Love

You get what you were waiting for. So many unknown tracks (to me), and a few classic anthems. And you get Nizzle, Unity MC and MC Octane! What a gift, this made my weekend even better!

The tracks are all very good, dancefloor smashers. Yeah, the new tracks are good for the dancefloors all over the UK, but come on, we can have a discussion about it, but the one track that still blow our minds into a billion pieces is obviously the last one by Sy & Unknown. Sadly they don’t make tracks like this one anymore….

The MC skills are really good. It keeps the entertainment level very high. No mucking about.

There are a few tiny cross fading errors, but nothing major. Nothing that can make you dislike this mix at all.

Homegrown and Potent, a mix series you must look out for. This won’t disappoint you at all. This will show you how diverse our scene is, and what our scene actually has to offer.

Check it out right now!!!

When a title of a mix(tape) is all in capitals, it must mean it’s fire. I saw this promo video the other week, and I got intrigued. Someone using the word ‘fuck’ so many times, that’s interesting. And also the music in the video was interesting. The name of the person? SPYRO. Yes, you recognise the name, and now there’s no hiding it: he’s after everyone, making sure you get this mixtape and play it out loud, waking up the whole area with his new sound. What does he call his new sound/style? Is it SPYROCore?

Wasn’t he Lethal Theory’s latest signing? And he releases his mix right on time, before the Summer kicks in and people are out and about. People can download this beast right now, and listen to it for months in a row. Why? Because we are the turn generation. If you are not, you are not allowed to download this mix. Read the title, and realise secretly that you are turnt.

Don’t know much about SPYRO, only that he’s made several tracks with Alex Prospect, which I’ve heard in many mixes before. It’s basically his promo mix for this mix that intrigued me a lot. According to the video, he’s in search for a brand new sound, and with this mix he has achieved it. Yes, it’s still UK Hardcore but with a twist. What’s that twist? Don’t have a clue, but it does sound good!

tracklist

01. Intro 
02. SPYRO – Diamond Mouth
03. SPYRO – How Deep Is Your Love
04. DJ Snake – Turn Down For What (SPYRO RE-FLEX) 
05. SPYRO – Drop It Low
06. Migos – Look At My Dab (Bad Royale & Diplo Remix) (SPYRO RE-FLEX) 
07. SPYRO – Throwin’ Hunna
08. SPYRO & Alex Prospect – Heads In The Clouds
09. SPYRO – Gotta Get Lo
10. SPYRO – Original Bad Boy
11. SPYRO – Green Drink Paint Party
12. SPYRO x Alex Prospect – Intoxicated
13. SPYRO – Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit
14. SPYRO & Alex Prospect – Need U 100%
15. SPYRO & Alex Prospect – Up 2 No Good (SPYRO FESTIVAL FLEX) 
16. SPYRO – Don’t Let Me Down x Better Off Alone (RE-FLEX) 
17. SPYRO – Mad Ting Mashup (Come With Me)

This mix is fire. And yes, it’s unique. The sound that he makes is unusual. It combines several styles into one. Like Gammer did before, but SPYRO perfected it. There’s still no name to it, but if it’s going to be named EDMCore, let me all warn you: months ago I was the first to come up with that term.

Anyway, SPYRO’s mix is indeed fire, but why so short? I don’t know why this mix is so short, I was really digging it, and then I realised that the mix was over. Only 20 minutes long. Why? Most mixes are at least double the length, but maybe it’s to tease people even more, getting hyped up for the sensation that is SPYRO.

What’s the biggest track in this mix? ‘Drop It Low’. Which is the ‘not the best track in this mix’? ‘Up 2 No Good’. Really like the original too much.

The speed at which these tunes hit you is unreal. 20 minutes of SPYRO madness. Have you listened to this mix already? You haven’t? Check it out on Soundcloud, it’s worth all the hype around it. Even me, TCD, got hooked on the ride, and promoted the video on my mainpage. But now the mixtape is out, it’s time for us all to appreciate it. And so should you!

SPYRO. Big mix!

Soundcloud has got hours of fun hidden away from the majority of us. But in all fairness: if you think it’s necessary to listen to everything on Soundcloud, you will be on it 24/7, and you wouldn’t be able to have a life outside of Soundcloud. Thankfully we all just go on Soundcloud and listen to everything in our timeline, but sometimes you need Facebook to guide you to a mix on Soundcloud. One sponsored message grabbed my attention: it was for a promo mix, made by a DJ called D-Lyte, and the mix is called ‘South Coast Business’.

I haven’t heard his name before, so this artist is completely new to me. But after listening to this mix it’s clear to me that he’s one DJ you need to follow. This mix is jam packed with tracks by well known names such as Kurt, Macks Wolf, M-Project, Jakazid, Fracus, and more. But also his own productions can be found in this. Which is a good thing for me, I know now what D-Lyte is capable of. Not just a DJ, also a producer. And representing the South Coast.

Let’s see the tracklist. 15 tracks in 56 minutes. Well, 14 tracks and an intro.

tracklist

01. Ridiculous Intro 
02. D-Lyte – Neon Dreams
03. Stormtrooper – Fiyah
04. Liqo & M-Project – Higher
05. Macks Wolf – Orgy Of Terror
06. Xavi BCN, Ruboy & Oscar Elemento – Kyoto (DJ DEPATH & M-Project Remix) 
07. The Prototypes – Rocket Guns Blazing
08. D-Lyte & Fracus – Miami Heat
09. D-Lyte – Knuckle Supper
10. DJ Kurt – Muka Puka
11. D-Lyte – Champion
12. DJ Kurt – Party Starter
13. In Effect – Travelling
14. Jakazid – Amnesia
15. D-Lyte & Fracus – Fat Pants

A lot of D-Lyte’s own productions in here, it’s a good introduction to what he’s capable of. Oh, and you also get an extra bonus: some serious scratching skills. Yep, I’ve used four words in that last sentence all starting with the letter ‘s’, that shows how serious I am. The scratching is done beautifully. You are going to dig this mix a lot, unless you don’t like UK Hardcore/Powerstomp.

It’s always good to explore Soundcloud and find new artists, and today’s find is one which grabbed my attention from the first second to the last. A wicked looking picture and an ace mix. Sometimes you see mixes and you think ‘is this going to be any good?’. Well, after hearing those 56 minutes fly by I came to the conclusion that this mix is good and D-Lyte is too! A very interesting mix, which should get you through this dull and boring weekend.

I am impressed. Never heard of D-Lyte before, but have become an instant fan of him. The tracks are good, the mixing skills are good, and the scratching is ‘DJ Sy’ worthy. The track that grabbed my attention the most was DJ Kurt’s ‘Muka Puka’. So extremely catchy, and for a strange reason it made me want a pukka pie.

D-Lyte has made my Sunday better. Thanks for this ace mix, can’t find anyting wrong with it. And that’s why it gets 5 out of 5 stars. It’s obvious why.

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!
