Essential Freeform 2019 - Mixed By Hedonistik Ritual

I know, I know. Only a few days ago I mentioned that it's rather quiet in the Freeform world, and long and behold: another epic Freeform mix is up on Soundcloud! This time it's by Hedonistik Ritual, a fairly 'new' face in the scene, with already a few amazing records under his belt. A few of these anthems you can find in this mix, made by Hedonistik Ritual himself. And this mix also includes the best Freeform record of 2019, or maybe of EVER. Which track am I talking about? You'll just have to wait and see.

I did meet him a few years ago, in Bournemouth, and he was a full on raver. Me? I was a wasted raver, drunk as hell (even slept standing up on the train to London). But he was passionate about Freeform, and after he turned to the decks, he also turned to producing. His records are released on big labels, and he has collaborated with one of the biggest names in the scene: Transcend.

I was wrong, saying that Freeform is rather quiet. It turns out 2019 is a good year for the scene. Not many parties happening, but music wise the quality has risen to a tremendous level. No cheap skate music producing artists, only the finest are selected, and remain respected. And Hedonistik Ritual, who's name sounds like a medical term for receiving an enema (trust me, that's really unpleasant), is one of those names you need to look out for.

Tracklist. Yes!

01. Alek Szahala - Ashurnishishi (Substanced Remix)

02. Hyphen - Levival

03. Hedonistik Ritual - Desecration

04. Transcend - Immortal Knowledge

05. Substanced - Jade

06. Transcend & Hedonistik Ritual - Organism

07. Kokomochi - Nautilus

08. Hedonistik Ritual - Free The World

09. Transcend - Neural

10. Faithless - We Come One (Moonrock Remix)

11. Kokomochi - Level 6

12. Rikki Arkitech - A.I.Danger

A proper Freeform tracklist. With a lot of repetative names like himself, Kokomochi (who is he/she? never heard of the artist before), and of course the mighty Transcend. And Substanced. Now, we are getting there, to the best record ever.

'Jade', released on Energy Field, is such a monster anthem. Whoever this Jade is he wrote this for, she must be very special. This uplifting record has grabbed me by my balls and hasn't let me go at all. This is Freeform at its best. So pure, so good, so Substanced. He and Transcend are my favourite Freeform producers of all time.

I have to give Hedonistik Ritual also credit for his contribution to the scene: the records he has made are of extremely good quality. You hear his passion and dedication for Freeform, and it has led up to absolute monster tracks. My favourite HR track? 'Free The World'.

A flawless mix. Thanks Hedonistik Ritual for bringing back my passion for Freeform. I need more of these mixes. 2019 is a good year for Freeform. We need to give it a big boost. This needs to be played at big events, by big names, played to thousands of ravers. Freeform deserves it!

Fuck me, 'Jade' is still an epic song.
