I hope you are all okay and safe. Stay at home, stay safe. If you have to walk out, do it the Piers Morgan way. But all jokes aside, stay safe. Only a few more months until the end of lockdown, and we can all go back partying. Until then, let Soundcloud be your daily hub of awesome music. And today, on this windy Wednesday, I've got one where the focus is fully on reverse bass. Yep, that's still alive and kicking. Haven't seen any of this in a while, so it's a nice mix to break the week in half.

Defective got behind the decks a few weeks ago, and decided to give us a reverse bass mix. Only 40 minutes long, but if you are working out, this could be a good mix to listen to when you are sweating your balls off. Well, you know what I mean. You always need bouncy music to keep you going in the gym or at home: listening to Jazz won't give you that edge. You need that raw power. And Defective's mix is full of bangers. Bangers I've not heard before.

Before I show you the tracklist, let me be honest with you guys: reverse bass ain't my favourite style. It is OK, but it's not in my top 10 favourite styles of all time. I don't even normally look for them on Soundcloud or any other platform: I stumbled by accident onto this mix. And as sceptical as I might be, I thought I'd give this a go. Why not? What have I got to lose?

So, here is the tracklist. Have fun with it!

  1. Darren Styles & TNT - Wonder

  2. Technikal, Suae & Dimatik - Time Stood Still

  3. Gammer & Henry Fong - The Feeling

  4. TNT & Coone - Pump Up The Jam

  5. Mkn, Toy Soldierz & Sik-Wit-It - Rock Star

  6. TNT - FYAH

  7. DJ Isaac - I Want You

  8. Toneshifterz, Timmy Trumpet & Will Sparks - FUCK YEAH

  9. DJ Isaac - Party People

  10. TNT - Drop The Deal

  11. KamiKaze & Hypnotic - Move Your Body

  12. TNT & Ruffneck - Mindcontroller 2k20

  13. TNT, Tuneboy & Technoboy - Gung

A short mix, and a short tracklist. Easy for me to type.But obviously the length of the mix or the amount of records isn't really that important, it is more important if the mix is any good. And the answer to that is yes.

Right out of the gate I have to say that I liked the mix. Defective has done a great job in compiling this mix and making it sound effortless. Certain tunes take me back to the early Hardstyle days, and some... well... aren't my thing. It's a mix and match of tracks that I like, and not so much.

The best track has to be DJ Isaac's 'I Want You'. Early vibes everywhere. Really like it. Closely followed by 'Mindcontroller 2k20'. Another slammer. And I do like 'Time Stood Still'.

I don't like the too cheesy and commercial stuff like 'FUCK YEAH' or 'Pump Up The Jam'. That's just too much for me.

All in all a nice mix, good mixed, and OK tracks. If you are into reverse bass, worth checking out!
