Guestmix 09/23 by GLOWKiD
Only a few weeks ago was I in Greece with the wife, enjoying our well deserved break. Well, everything was OK, besides the weather. When we landed at Thessaloniki airport, the weather was great, but the next few days it had turned nasty. We didn't know, and normally it's all OK. But Greece has always had a special place in my heart. Because of my blogs/reviews, I get the hear music from all around the world, and a few years ago I got into contact with GLOWKiD, this Greek music lover (blogger, vlogger, and radio host). And we share the same love for music, but compared to me, he's more into it. But there's a mutual understanding and feeling about music, which created a bond with my brother from Greece.
My friend from Greece has made a guest mix for Radio Punctum, which I've never heard of. But don't forget: I'm not a humanised Wikipedia: there's a lot that I don't know, but at least I'm eager to learn and appreciate the unknown things. This Prague based community radio station asked my friend to make them a guest mix, and you are about to listen to it!
And the asked the right person to give them an oldskool/newskool mix. From Jungle to Breaks to Rave to Hardcore, you can it all in here. And obviously he had to add a Prodigy song in the mix, as he's a massive Prodigy fan (but who isn't?). He keeps the flow throughout the mix, and keeps us on our feet, dancing.
Don't know how or where he found these records, as I've not seen or heard them before, but they are glorious!

This is a very interesting tracklist, and when I initially looked at it, it didn't raise any eyebrows. I just stared at it, without any prejudice. Didn't know a single song, but I listened to it anyway, as it's a GLOWKiDmix, and you cannot just let that slide, right?
The mix starts in such a cool way, and a typical Greek way. This fashion never wears thin, and remains so damn dope. The Sirtaki? Come on. But not your bog standard version, but a more dance friendlier version, and suitable for this mix. Good introduction, and good way of getting the audience's attention, GLOWKiD!
But once the intro is done, the madness arises. The records selected are really amazing, and all unknown records to me. Well, there's a song that samples the worst song I can imagine, Underworld's 'Born Slippy', and there are other samples used that I recognise, but the songs themselves are new.
It is a very nice mix. Really enjoyed it. And can't wait to hear more from GLOWKiD.
Best track? 'Turn The Heat Up' by Z-Neo. Doing a lot of damage, Z-Neo!
Ps. dope image! Really colourful, and it matches the mix, in a bizarre way!
