King For 3 Days (2022)
How funny is it, to find a mix with 'KING' in its title? Only a handful of days ago did I find out that there's a Kings day event in London, to celebrate King Willem Alexander's birthday. I am not joking though, this is serious. His birthday celebrations are on the 30th of April 2022, and my wife already purchased a few orange t-shirts, for me to blend in among all the other Dutch people. It is weird and quite the coincidence, am I right?
Don't know really why DJ Virus is a king for 3 days? Is that a thing? Is that something sexual? If anyone knows the answer, please leave a comment below. But I've already seen another mix by DJ Virus called 'King For 2 Days', so there's a theme going on here. Still not sure why he's a King though? But he's a master in making excellent mixes, that's for sure. Since I first listened to a mix by DJ Virus, I've been truly gobsmacked. The quality of his mixes are really amazing, and this '3 day'- King mix is no exception.
Or could it be that he's playing at Kings day? I am still baffled. Someone know the answer to this, yes?
Anyway, let's talk about the mix. It's an hour and 20 minutes long, and it contains the finest Breakbeat and Happy Hardcore tunes. And this mix came in quite handy: I was cutting the grass earlier this morning, and decided to listen to DJ Virus' mix. The cutting of the grass became an easy chore. It was done before I even knew it. Breakbeat Hardcore gave me the right amount of energy to get me through this otherwise awful chore.
Yes, don't moan; I know it's quite nippy and I had a few days to do the gardening, but I was busy. Today was the only day of the week I could do it. But now, let's get back to the mix, and show you the tracks DJ Virus used.

Now that happened. I think I've said it on a previous Breakbeat review, I am not a connoisseur and most names are not known to me, but the music does speak to me. So my view of this tracklist is 'don't know half of these names', but you might have a different opinion. But what I do know, is that the mix is very tight. Very fucking tight.
It starts with a big anthem, and it continues throughout the 80 minutes. DJ Virus has given us yet another epic mix. I've got no negative feedback, only love and appreciation for this mix. It is one mix that could get us through the weekend with a huge smile on our face. And it's one that should give DJ Virus more appreciation. He's released some amazing banging mixes, and this is yet another one to add to his impressive mix-list.
So many great dancefloor smashers. And so many songs in here which will remain in your head for the rest of the day. One of them, which is my favourite, is 'Control'. What a big piano focussed song, and the vocals are also epic.
What a wonderful mix to end our week with. Enjoy the last few hours of this week, before the misery of next week is about to happen. Let DJ Virus take you on a journey, a pleasant journey.
Oh, this is also a free download. Fucking 'ave it! Yes!
