I am pleased. And that's not a normal way to start a review, but why not? A few weeks ago I found yet another mix by DJ A.K., and as we all know, this is one of the most underrated channels on Soundcloud. He's been releasing mixes on the regular, and his latest mix is certainly one you need to check out. But truth be told, I keep stating that in each review I do, so maybe it's becoming obnoxious? I am clearly stating the obvious, so instead of me ranting on, let's focus on the mix I found, and have absorbed like a sponge!
I always save mixes to listen to later, as there's simply not enough time to listen to all the mixes I want to. And if you could look at my 'saved' list, you will see a lot of A.K.'s mixes in there. Some I completely forget to listen to, for which I profusely apologise. But those that I do listen to, they normally get a review, as they are too damn good. But the mix you are about to listen to, might be the best one I've encountered on his Soundcloud channel. Boy, that's a bold statement, right?
For his latest mix he grabbed a handful of new(ish) Breakbeat Hardcore and Jungle anthems, and mixed them together into a 76 minute long mix. And recently I've been fully into Breakbeat, be it the 90s, 00s, 10s, or even the newer sounding Breakbeat. I've emerged myself, and I seem to love it more than anything else I would normally listen to. Breakbeat does something to me, more than any other style or genre. And A.K.'s mix just landed on my timeline, at the right time. And now I cannot stop listening to it.

The mix has gone some serious smashers in it, but there's one track that stands out that much, I had to comment on A.K.'s mix on Soundcloud, which I normally never do (not just A.K.). The track blew my mind away, and I sat there, in silence, because I just felt like I was hit by a train at full speed. Or a truck. Or a car. Whatever hit me, it came at me at full speed, and I wasn't ready for it.
OK, let's go straight into that track. It's made by someone with the weirdest but coolest name at the same time. Renegade Bob Ross? Like WTF? It's quirky and innovative, but weird. And the track I'm talking about, has also got a weird name. 'Tell The Maid, They Came 2 Invade'. When I heard that track for the first time, I rewound that track over and over, as it's beautiful. Whoever it is behind the track, you've made a timeless classic, a masterpiece! I am fully in awe of this record, and if this doesn't appear on people's TOP 10 Breakbeat anthems, something is wrong with the world.
It was closely followed by 'Never Look Back' by Jimmy J. Also another top notch record, with amazing vocals. The vocals make it work even more. But it couldn't beat Renegade Bob Ross (seriously, what a fucking name!).
I've said it before in many reviews, but A.K. delivered yet another epic mix. But this time it has to be named as his finest mix ever. The only negative thing I'd like to mention, is the last track. The original has been played too many times, it's overkill for me now. But the others are just smashing. And that record by Renegade Bob Ross... come on, what can top that?
Check out A.K.'s channel. You will not be disappointed. Trust me!
