arps - The Locked Down Mix (2020)

arps is bored. Or he's in prison. Whatever he is, he's back with a new mix. Last week he tagged me on Facebook, and asked if I was bored. Well, truth be told, I was doing some DIY, so yeah, I was busy. Still liked the mix on Soundcloud. I always do that, if I need to check a mix or set later. So that's what I've done. I know I am a week late, but still I am checking it out. And to confirm: he's not in prison. He's actually made it look quite professional. But he does look bored though.

Does that mean he's bored due to the music being absolute kak? Nope. He's not bored because of the music. The music, as always, is spot on. This time the focus of this mix is obviously Kniteforce records, and also 4 The Core Recordings. But the main focus is Breakbeat Hardcore. And isn't that a style we all love?

Quite simply, this mix is dope. All new anthems. I've not heard any of these before, so it's a treat. Let's go into this weekend with a smile on our faces, and with Breakbeat coming out of our speakers, at a maximum level, when it comes to the volume. Let's get fucked!

A lot of new music, that makes TCD happy. But hopefully I'm not the only one who's happy right now. Please don't be as miserable as arps. God, he looks unhappy. But thankfully his mix is good.

But let's be serious for a minute. He's made yet another epic mix. Full with Breakbeat Hardcore anthems. If you like the sound of that, make sure you press play. As usual, you do get a lot of piano driven records. That's basically a necessity when it comes to Breakbeat: if you don't have a piano section, is it even Breakbeat? Bro, do you even lift? It needs a piano section.

It was 66 minutes of pure Breakbeat heaven. I really enjoyed the mix. At one stage though the mix goes a bit wonky. Could be due to recording issues, or maybe a mistake by arps. It's because of the lockdown, blame it on that.

I've got only love to give for this mix. Nothing bad, only Breakbeat anthems. And how can I be negative about that? A solid combination. And yet another wicked mix by arps. Check out his mix right now!
