Club Mix 001 (2020)
This review is kind of special. It's made by one of my former colleagues, who I've worked with for about 2 years. We both moved away from our workplace, and I think he went up North, to pursue a different career. Well, I didn't, but that's okay. Even though we don't communicate as much as we did before, I did remember him being the party animal of the company. Name a big event, and he's been there. And not just stories to share, he also had images to back them up. A true party animal.
He loves his EDM. He loves it a lot. And that's really good. Not many people are into this kind of music. Not many I know of, who I've worked with. Most of my (former) colleagues only listen to the standard top 40 crap. They do not tend to experiment with music whatsoever. Kind of boring, isn't it? EDM is the future, and we know it. This is where Chris Hawkins comes in. His first club mix, uploaded about 2 weeks ago, has got those wicked EDM anthems in it. A nice Club/House mix.
Not only a party animal, but also a DJ. Chris, if you are reading this; if you are going to perform at EDC in a few years time, make sure you send one ticket to me. #justsaying

I have to say that, even though I love music, I never heard any of these records before. Well, regulars to this website know I love my music slightly harder and faster, and I do miss out on other styles, such as Club and House. I do know some original records, like T2, Kanye West, 50 Cent, etc, but the majority are unknown to me. Maybe I should invest my time now in searching for more mixes like this one, and see what's out there?
Chris' mix contains a lot of nice versions of already wicked anthems. A nice mellow mix to start my Sunday morning with. An hour of Chris in the mix.
I do like the mix. The build up is alright, and he's got some dancefloor fillers in his mix. I know he also DJ's in clubs, so he's not just a bedroom DJ. Never had the chance to hear him perform, but hey, it might happen after this COVID-19 is over. But for now, we can only appreciate music being mixed in mainly living rooms and bedrooms.
A few small minor errors occurred. Nothing major. Cross fading errors. But nothing to be embarrassed about. A good attempt to create a wicked Sunday morning chill mix. And it does have nice anthems in here. What else would you want?
Keep the mixes coming, Chris. Hope you are okay. Keep safe, and keep on partying forever!
