A-Lusion - Live At Last World 2013

You know when you are browsing through your music folders on your PC that you will find within those folders hidden and forgotten records. And seeing as I've got thousands of them, I came across a record that I completely forgotten about. A-Lusion's 'Too Close'. Remember that song? 'Don't feel my body, boy, feel the rhythm'. That was truly an amazing record, and when I went through my Hardstyle folder and I heard this one again after a few years, I decided to go Soundcloud and see if I could find it there. I did, and it was part of this liveset, recorded back in 2013 at Last World. A half hour set with 8 wicked A-Lusion records, and of course 'Too Close' included in the set.

I've never heard of this event, if I'm truthfully honest. Seeing the party history on Partyflock it shows that the last Last World was held in 2015, but after that it disappeared. The line-up of the 2013 edition looked good, with several awesome areas such as the Cenobite Records area, Fresh Beats, Theracords, T-Town Masters, and of course the mainstage, where A-Lusion played. The whole event got good reviews, and now it's time to judge A-Lusion's set. But first we need to see the actual tracklist. And it's a short one.

01. A-Lusion - Start Living (Live Edit)

02. A-Lusion - Electric Sky

03. A-Lusion - Don't Wanna Know (2012 Edit)

04. Linkin Park - Burn It Down (A-Lusion Bootleg)

05. A-Lusion - Make Up Your Mind

06. Bastille - Bad Blood (A-Lusion Bootleg)

07. A-Lusion - Too Close (Live Edit)

08. Sylenth & Glitch - Music In You (A-Lusion 2013 Live Edit)

This is such a wicked set, sadly only lasting for 30 minutes. I do love a set to be a bit longer, but hey, at least the people in Belgium got a bit of A-Lusion. And that's always a bonus.

Within the space of 30 minutes he demolishes the stage. And especially when 'Too Close' started, that's definately a goosebump moment. Don't get me wrong, the previous records were awesome too, but 'Too Close' is just wicked. But is this version as good as the version I've got saved on my PC?

I'm not a fan of Linkin Park, and normally find the vocals used in records by the vocalist of that band not great. But in this song 'Burn It Down' it's slightly tweaked, and the result is probably the first ever Linkin Park used song that I like. Oh, and what about Bastille's song? Never even heard the original before, but it's catchy as fuck.

The big moment you've been waiting for: is this live edit of 'Too Close' better than the original? It's okay, but I would still prefer the original. But without a doubt this is a dancefloor smasher: there's no way you are going to sit still and pretend nothing is happening around you: you will rush to the dancefloor immediately once you hear this anthem.

A wicked mix. And it's also free to download, so what are you exactly waiting for?
