EurufiQ - The Great Euphoric Year Mix 2k20

2020 has been a funny year. For many not a good year, but for some it's been OK, or even great. During 2020 we had a lot of wicked tunes being released, and the Hardstyle scene was one of those you had to follow, to get you through this horrendous year. And to showcase what was released during 2020, the best way you can, is by listening to a year mix. Today's year mix was made by DJ Rawdust, who I've reviewed before in the past. And guess what? It's jam packed with Euphoric Hardstyle anthems. Guess you want to hear that, eh?

I've reviewed a few year mixes, and 2020 was the year of Hardstyle for me. We had so many wicked releases, from a wide range of artists. The scene hasn't stopped, even though the world has. It has been pushing music forward, and gave us great content, to get us through to the day we can say 'bye' to COVID, and we can party yet again, like 1 1/2 year ago. We need to get back to that world, it was much better. Better, but with the music released in 2020 it would become even better!

So what has Rawdust done for this mix? He's picked 41 records, mixed them all together, and the result is an hour and 20 minute long mix. The tracklist is one you would really need to see, and absorb. You will love it.

Wow. This is a wide variety of artists, all smashed into an hour and 20 minute long mix. Good selection by DJ Rawdust. Really like it. And also the fact that the world is still sane, and keeps on doing what it does best, with the limited resources we've got. We are all stuck indoors, and why not try to make the best out of it, eh?

Hardstyle does make me happy. Euphoric Hardstyle even more. I'm really in awe of this type of music, how it brings a miserable person like myself, into the right state of mind. And the records selected by Rawdust do bring a smile on my face. Not all of them, but the majority do. Let's say 97% of the records are awesome. It's been a great year for Hardstyle. But which record has blown me away the most?

Well, there are two. I couldn't decide on which I should favour the most. It's 'Warriors' by Wildstylez and Ran-D, and 'Tear The Walls Down' by Firelite & DEEZL. I really adore these two records.

A good mix, with a few mixing errors. But nothing you should consider in your judgement if you should or shouldn't play this mix. It still brings a smile on your face. Well, I'm sitting here with a huge ass smile, so that's a positive thing, right?
