Garuda YearMix 2019

Happy 2020! The decade has finally possed, and what a shit decade it was. We've had a lot of ups and downs, but when it comes to music, it's all been positive. We've seen new styles emerge, and some disappear. Some have grown in popularity, some have lost followers. And some just continued on. Steady as she goes. Trance is one of those genres that has slowly moved forward, not making that many changes, which is a good thing. Hence why there's a huge following, and one of the labels that has been pushing Trance music forward, is Garuda.

The label, run by Gareth Emery, has been a successful label since 2009, and has given us memorable anthems. And 2019 has been a successful year for them too! To celebrate the year gone by, they have uploaded this 50 minute long year mix, containing the finest Trance anthems of 2019. And also a few harder tracks, which I'll talk about later. But for now, let's delve into the tracklist, and get all excited. 2019 was a good year, but will 2020 be even better? We've got 364 days to find out!

This was 50 minutes of pure heaven! I woke up this morning (or was it this afternoon? I was still a bit tipsy) and I went straight onto my PC. I know it's pathetic, but I needed my morning ritual to be done with. I needed music, and I found Garuda's mix. It took me into a new dimension, and it has been a fantastic journey through the records selected for this mix. 23 amazing Trance records.

Most people are still recovering from last night, and I'm sitting here, enjoying 2020 already. Yes, we had to do some chores, but whilst doing them, I had this mix on. Christmas and NYE are officially over, it's time for normal music to come back into our lives. See you next Christmas, Michael Buble and Mariah Carey. Now it's time for normal music.

Garuda's mix is a good one. A good one to start 2020 with. Especially Gareth Emery's own records, which there are a lot of in this mix. The best one of this mix? Sorry, but it has to be three: the Laserface records. 01, 02 and 03. My God, they are good! Pure Trance vibes coming through your speakers. Especially 02. What a build up. Tremendously done, mr Emery. Wicked anthem(s).

A wonderful mix. Enjoy it, and you will certainly see 2020 becoming a good year for us all. Hopefully it will be a good year for Garuda too, but no doubt it will. If they keep on pushing music like what they have used for this mix, it will be a majestic year.

Oh yeah, it was cool that they have added a UK Hardcore anthem at the end. Not a huge fan of Hixxy, but still an enjoyable record. It's nice to see it slowly going places, after several decades of being forgotten and under appreciated.
