Glowkid pres. Generation X - Aaja Channel 2 - 14 05 24


If you are a regular to this page, you know of Glowkid, Gl0wkid, or however his name is spelled. His mixes have made it to this page, and I even had the honour to speak to this legendary DJ and producer, and radio host. And after a short break, his show has made its return. The Generation X radioshow was on a radio channel called Aaja Channel 2. Now I do know a few radio channels, but never encountered this Aaja station. But it's never too late to learn.

And if you like his mixes, you'll love the fact that his show is on the air, every second Tuesday of each month. And obviously it's a great show, as I've been following my Greek friend for a few years now, and he's been a great host for many years. And he keeps us rave enthusiasts dancing. His latest, and debut on Aaja radio, is roughly an hour long, and it's got some obscure underground anthems. Trust me when I say that you'll love them.


I tweeted a picture of my car audio unit, and it was showing Glowkid's show, and it even got retweeted by GPF. Don't ask me why or how. But maybe even they love the Glowkid?


You'll get everything you wanted to hear. Rave? Yes, Hardcore? Check, Nuskool? Oh yeah! Hardcore Breaks? Couldn't be a mix by Glowkid at all if it didn't have a bit of that in it!


But the big question is, is it any good? Is this debut set a good one? Well, there's only one way to find it out:


  1. Mark Archer - Armageddon (Sanxion Remix)

  2. JAKAZiD - Hard Crew

  3. Dowster vs Zensation - Release The Stress

  4. DeBisco - Second Contact

  5. Sideflip feat OZL - Everybody In The House

  6. Hyper Motion vs The Prodigy - Fire

  7. RRRitalin & Cynthia Stern - Battle Creek Brawl

  8. Yesten's Legacy - Busy

  9. Glowstyx - Bunny

  10. Jamie Zarfas - Overload

  11. Skooler & Flare - Probe

  12. Mark0 - Back-2-'92

  13. Acen - Close Your Eyes (Optikon Love Show)

  14. Lomac - It's Always A Blue Sky Day (Old Skool Back To '93 Mix)

  15. The Prodigy - No Good


It's amazing how he keeps on finding these hidden gems. I only recognise a handful of names, and obviously the first artist on this list is the most well known (Mark Archer, a.k.a. one half of Altern 8). But obviously I've come across songs by JAKAZiD, Acen, Dowster, and the most obvious one: The Prodigy.


Glowkid is such a massive The Prodigy fan, can't you tell? And he's a massive Rave fanatic. Finally I have found my match, my brother from another mother. Someone who is as passionate as I am. But he's got more skills than I do. He can actually do something. I can just type and talk bollocks, but he has got a wider platform, and a wider audience too. Oh, how I envy my Greek friend.


But he deserves it. He is so passionate, he deserves the best of the best. And for this mix he went all out, and found some amazing records. And the one that starts around the 37:30 minute mark, that one is just awesome. Can't figure out which one that one is. Closely followed by 'Busy''.


But obviously the biggest hit of them all, is 'No Good'. An all time rave classic. But it has been credited too many times. Time for a new audience to get respected. And one of them is Glowkid.


A fantastic mix, one that I will keep on listening to. And keep the glow coming please! Never stop the glow!!!
