A Slice Of Freeform [Reloaded] (2019)

Freeform is life! There, I've said it. Freeform has got to be one of the most underrated styles in the whole world. Besides Nazi Death Rock (who wants to listen to that?). But Freeform is a style that deserves more credit. Who needs this EDM stuff when this could be played at the mainstages all over the world? So underrated, yet so beautiful. And uncompromised. The DJs and producers are still within the scene, keeping the music alive, and generic. The mix you are about to listen to, is mixed by M@rt!n-J, a legendary DJ, and the records he has selected are seriously impressive.

There's no denying it, Freeform is underground. Freeform is something you need to witness. You cannot say you have lived if you have never been to a Freeform party. I've been to a few, and I always had this good impression after the event: it's basically one big family. That feeling is generic, and honest. We are all there to party, and leave our 'human' bodies to become extraterrestial things. We float, we fly, we do things that no other music style can do to us. It's something so unique to Freeform, you should go to an event at least once in your lifetime.

And the music! Don't get me started about the music. Heavenly! A state of bliss, that's what I'm in whenever I hear Freeform. And this mix contains just those anthems that should get the recognition it deserves. But until then, you should just press play, absorb the music, and become a better human being. Let yourself go, on this not so sunny Sunday afternoon. As I said, Freeform is life, and you can press play whenever, and it gets you immediately.

I was going to review this mix in a few days, but I accidentally pressed play, and once I heard those familiar noises, I couldn't resist to hear the full mix, and write about it. So here it is, the tracklist:

01. A.B & Solution - NanEater (HU Intro Mix)

02. A.B - This Is (Westfest VIP)

03. Douglas - Ice Cream (Second Scoop)

04. JD-KiD & Arun presents Stardust - Valhalla

05. Arcadian - Qualm

06. JX - Restless (Haze & Cyrax Remix)

07. Greg Peaks - Deadly Nightshade

08. Transcend & Cyrax - Rip This (Rave Edit)

09. Faithless - We Come One (Moonrock Remix)

10. Douglas - Boys Will Promise Me

11. Transcend & Cyrax - Follow Me (Eufeion Remix)

12. Moonrock - Interstellar Main Theme (170 Mix)

M@rt!n-J's mix is as good as you expected it to be. Really entertaining, and the records are really dope too! I cannot name one track he has selected which is crap, or not even Freeform-ish. They are ALL Freeform classics. But to start off the mix with two of A.B's biggest records is just sick. You know you are about to listen to a dope mix when you hear 'NanEater' and 'This Is'.

A.B is a legend, but also Transcend, Greg Peaks, Cyrax, and the list goes on. In this mix you do find the creme de la creme of Freeform. And it has taken me to a new level of euphoria.

I'm not a huge fan of the 'We Come One' record, still need to get used to a Faithless record being Freeform, but I will get there. That's the only 'downside' of this mix. It's a good record, but not what I was expecting lol.

And what about 'Boys Will Promise Me'?!?!?! Never knew there was a mashup! Sweet Lord, how good is that record? Or 'Follow Me'. Even though the original is next level shit, this version does the original justice.

I've got nothing else to mention than the usual: check out this mix and download this. That's all. A fucking fantastic Freeform mix.
