Arkangel - The Emergence (Promo Mix) (2018)
A couple of weeks ago I got a notification on Facebook, asking if I would start following Arkangel. Not knowing who he/she was, I had a quick look online, and saw something interesting: a promo mix. Thanks to Joey Riot for sharing this, otherwise I would have missed it. But if Joey shares your page it must mean you are the real deal. Still a newbie in the scene with only one mix on Soundcloud, but potential to become much more. Let's see this promo mix by Arkangel.
I don't know much about the DJ, so let's focus on the mix. I've been listening a lot to Rawstyle lately, so to hear a mix focussed on the euphoric side of Hardstyle made me a bit sceptic: it can be a hit or miss with Hardstyle. Or too cheesy or spot on. Arkangel's selection is interesting to say the least, not boring at all. But is it wicked, is it worth a listen? I'll let you be the judge of that.
Here's the tracklist. 50 minute long mix, including a few of her own productions! So a promo mix not only demonstrating her DJ skills but also her producing skills. Interesting!
01. Arkangel - Intro
02. DJ Isaac - Heaven
03. Aztech & Galactixx - Time To Shine
04. LNY TNZ - We Go Up (Da Tweekaz Remix)
05. Nicky Romero - Lighthouse (Code Black & Toneshifterz Remix)
06. Sickdeliz feat Alina Renae - Loves Got Me Down
07. Adrenalize - Get Up
08. Manian - Hold Me Tonight (Toneshifterz, Suae & Pulsar Remix)
09. Gareth Emery - Concrete Angel (Coone & Code Black Remix)
10. Gigi D'agostino - L'Amour Toujours (TCM Hardstyle Bootleg)
11. Zatox - Hero
12. Code Black - Before You Go
13. Arkangel - Euphoria
14. Da Tweekaz - People Against Porn
15. Headhunterz - The B-Side
16. Arkangel - Hate U So Much
This is really a diverse tracklist. A bit of everything. Arkangel likes her Hardstyle to be a tad euphoric. You can hear that in her own productions too.
It has been an interesting mix. A good first mix. A few tiny cross fading errors, but nothing major. For me personally some tracks were too cheesy. I've lost interest in Da Tweekaz, and their music is kind of disgusting lol. 'People Against Porn'? Really? Also I've never been a huge fan of DJ Isaac's Hardstyle music, and his version of 'Heaven' is really horrible.
Credits for Arkangel for having a short intro. But at least she's got an intro. That shit takes me back to the early 90s, when every mix had one.
Best record. That's difficult. But I like 'Lighthouse'.
Give this new DJ a go. Spread the word and spread the love.
