Anthems Of Svenson & Gielen (Mixed By Darren Simpson) (2015)

If you grew up during the late 90s, you must have been intoxicated by the anthems released by Svenson and Gielen. This legendary duo from Belgium took the Trance scene by storm, and during the late 90s and early 2000s, you couldn't avoid them. They were literally everywhere. Not only dominating the charts in their home country Belgium, but all over the world. And if you think about it: who has been to a rave during these glorious years and NOT heard a Svenson & Gielen song? That simply did not happen: their tunes were played everywhere, and even in 2021 their songs are loved and appreciated!

And they became so successful, they released their first album on the mighty ID&T. If you ask people to name their favourite DJ duo from the 90s/early 2000s, they will probably name Svenson and Gielen. They were everywhere, and their songs became iconic songs, defining a new generation that stood up and moved towards the dance floors all over the world.

If you weren't around during these glorious years, you might need to re-educate yourself, and google these two names. If you've done that, come back here, and listen to this mix. A mix by Darren Simpson, who not only used the tracks from S&G's 2002 album, but also a few anthems that were missed on the album. It's nice to hear those memorable anthems and a few forgotten tracks.

Of course I knew about 90% of these songs, and it's because of 'Release Me' that these two have gained my respect, but Darren Simpson's mix has made me open my eyes to another wicked anthems, which I've completely forgotten about. A track better than all their top 40 hits combined! Guess which song I'm referring to!

Darren's mix is tight, and highly enjoyable. And I'm not the only one who appreciated this mix, and the tunes made by Svenson and Gielen. Yes, the mix might have been released 6 years ago, but who's looking when what happened? S&G released their songs nearly 20 years ago! How's that for time?

I am in awe with the big hits, like 'The Beauty Of Silence', 'Sunlight Theory', 'Twisted', 'Release Me', 'Answer The Question', but the one that blew me away has to be 'After All'. What a song! Completely forgot this song even existed! The vocals are just stunning!

Not a fan of a few songs, like Test's monster hit 'Lethal Industry', and Cosmic Gate's version of 'Answer The Question'. The original versions are just simply much better!

But still, a very enjoyable mix. Full of monster anthems from Svenson and Gielen. Please take me back to 2001-2002-2003. Those were absolutely amazing years. Trance was so much better than present day Trance, right?
