If you have Facebook, and you are friends with Shaun Banger Scott, you know what I’m probably going to say. You’ve probably been tagged a million times, and seen this mix on your timeline so much. If you do know what I’m talking about, you are part of the entourage. The SBS entourage. He’s tagged you for a reason (and myself included), to get everyone hyped up for the event which took place a few days ago. Niche, a legendary club, is back. Has it really left? Has it really? I don’t think it has. It’s still alive and kicking in the majority of those who went clubbing there during the heydays of Bassline music.

I was too late. Not only for the last event, but to actually go to the original Niche club. I was so into Bassline music, I became a Niche member (well, membership). Bought myself a jacket, and was hyping myself up to the max to visit the club, and then the news hit me: the club was closed. I was so gutted. Maybe cried a bit. But seriously, I was this close of actually going out and experience what everyone already has. It’s good that it’s still alive and kicking, with one of the pioneers of the sound still pushing it forward: Shaun Banger Scott.

His set was recorded back in 2006, when Niche was touring and hit London. I can’t say anything about that event, because I wasn’t there, and there’s no information online. It’s all about the music, and thanks to SBS for sending me the tracklist. It’s been a while since I last heard a Niche/SBS mix, but it’s time for it. And here’s the tracklist!

I was talking to SBS earlier, and I asked him if this set was really recorded back in 2006 and not in 2016. He confirmed it, it was  2006. 11 years ago, and it’s still sounding fresh as a daisy. 11 years old. These tunes might be ‘old’, but they still have the capability to destroy speakers.

These tunes made me happy, and they made me reminisce to those wonderful years, when I discovered Niche and SBS and all those wonderful artists, DJs and MCs. It dominated my life, even though I lived (back then) in the Netherlands. And I was probably the whitest person who enjoyed this magical music.

It’s good to hear that it’s still alive, and that there are people all over the UK still dancing to the wonderful tunes from the late 90s until the mid 00s. Shaun Banger Scott is one of those names who keeps it alive, and you can tell that he loves it. Not only the fact he tagged us 1643823 times in a post, but also because of the fact that his Soundcloud page is filled with hours of fun, and his latest mix is a good ‘un. It’s got some bangers in here, and probably the finest tune he saved until last!

A wonderful liveset, 11 years old, but still sounding fresh. SBS might have dominated in the past, truth be told: he’s still dominated the present and the future, and he’s still one of the leading names in the 4×4, Bassline and Speed Garage scene.

After hearing this mix I will forgive him for tagging me. It was worth it!

More new music for you all to embrace. A brand new mix was sent to me the other day via Facebook, and it’s a  new mix made by DJ Retro and Nition, and it’s called ‘The 4×4 Skank & Vibes Volume 1′. You should really give this one a go, seeing as it’s a good one, judging the mix and the tracklist. It’s filled with 17 bangers, and were carefully mixed by Retro & Nition. Worth a download, to be honest.

This isn’t the first time I’ve reviewed a Nition mix, but I can’t remember if I had the honour of reviewing a Retro mix before. The previous website got deleted, and the reviews have disappeared completely. So sorry if I’m not sure, but at least I’m listening and reviewing this mix right now, eh?

The mix is jam packed with a lot of Organ House/Speed Garage/Deep House/Tech House/Bassline tunes, and the feeling you get when the mix is playing, is of pure bliss. Nothing can change your mood, this is really a good mix, the tunes they’ve selected are all good, even the ‘Call Me Maybe’ remix. I know it’s the world’s most annoying song, but this version makes the song acceptable. Curious yet? You want to see the tracklist?

15. Nay Nay – Im On It VIP
16. Retro & Nition – Never Say Never
17. Nastee Boi feat MC Bonez – Roll Like That

See, I told you that the tracklist does look gorgeous. It’s nice to see and hear their own productions and remixes in it aswel, and before you all get hyped up too much, you should press play and download it at the same time.

The mix is rather excellent, and even though there are a couple of small errors (mixing into the next track does go slightly bonkers sometimes), it’s a good mix. A nice and calm mix, one mix you really should embrace.

The best track in this mix? Oh, that’s a difficult one, but I have to choose ‘Never Say Never’. Such a wicked track, good vocals, nicely balanced track by Retro & Nition. They are on fire.

A solid mix, with excellent tracks in it. Carefully selected by Retro & Nition. A good first instalment, can’t wait for the second instalment.

Damn, I can’t get ‘Call Me Maybe’ out of my head. Arrrrghhh.
