Finnbarr. You might recognise the name. It has appeared on this site before. Hell, I've even seen and heard him play. But that was a few years ago, and things have changed. He has changed too, but I'll explain that in a minute. For now, let us focus on the mix which you are about to listen to. It's a Techno mix, and one of the first ones I discovered in 2024. This will set the bar for the rest of the year. But leave that to Finnbarr. If there's one person who can provide us with awesome music, it's him! And this mix is one that won't disappoint you.
I had to do a quick search, but it's nearly 8 years ago since BMH Freeform, where I say him perform, with other artists such as Rikki Arkitech, Transcend, A.B, Thumpa, Cyrax, and Midas. My God, where has the time gone? But back then, he was known to produce UK Hardcore and Freeform anthems, and he was bloody good at it. I hailed him as one of the finest producers at the time, and many agreed. Unfortunately the Freeform world is too small for Finnbarr, and he deserves a bigger audience with his producing skills.
So Techno it is. I've been following him for a while on Soundcloud, and every so often something comes along, and it excites me. For this radio station called BFH, he made a mix containing a few of his own productions. And even though it's not Freeform anymore, you do hear its influence in the songs he made. When he was a Freeform producer, he was ace, and now as a Techno producer, he's ace too!
A winner in my books. But is this mix one you need to check out, or leave behind?

This is a very interesting mix. If you've never heard of Finnbarr before, and you would like to know what it is he makes, this mix could be a very interesting mix to introduce yourself into his world.
Most of the tracks are made by Finnbarr, so you will be introduced, and you will love hearing his songs. Trust me, his songs are hard, rough, and sometimes a tad quirky to start with, but don't let his quirkiness fool you. His approach to Techno is awesome, and when you hear a Finnbarr song, you won't be able to remain seated. Or if you have to remain seated, your body starts to move vigorously. I'm now sitting at home, bopping my head up and down, from left to right. This music makes me move.
The intro might be a tad soft, but once that's behind us, it's one powerful anthem after another. And toward the end he even goes Gabber-fast, and ends the mix with 'Exlxaxl', which can be seen as quirky, but it works well.
There's a lot of awesomeness in this mix, and I'm glad that Finnbarr now makes Techno, as he should get recognition for his skills. And the songs he has added to this mix (his own), are all amazing. But the intro, that's the one that remained in my head for days. 'I've grown accustomed to the tune she hums night and noon'. Those lyrics are so infectious. Probably the coolest way to start a mix, and prepare the audience for the madness that is about to happen.
An amazing mix. What's there to say? Finnbarr, you legend. Keep on providing us with awesome music. Whatever he touches, turns into Gold! And this mix, is certifiably GOLD!
