M@rt!n-J - Finnbarr (2019)

Finnbarr. Who doesn't know him? This underrated Freeform producer has been making excellent Freeform music for years now, and finally someone has made this dedication mix. Why? Because Finnbarr deserves it. The music made by him is just genius, and pure Freeform, sometimes with a twist. And for once I can say that I've seen Finnbarr perform. God, what was the name of the event I went to in Bournemouth? Was it even Bournemouth? Christ, I forgot where it even was! But truth be told, I was drunk. So drunk, I fell asleep standing on the train back to London, that's how drunk I was. And it turns out a gift: my kip was good.

Before we start talking about all the times I was drunk, let's focus on the mix. Again, this is a dedication mix made by M@rt!n-J, the all round mix master. He keeps on making mixes nearly on a weekly basis. This time he decided that it was time to make a mix of this 'great man', who has had indeed a lot of amazing releases on labels such as Stamina Records, and ReBuild Music, and more. Also a few collaborations with the mighty A.B can be found in this mix, and as an added bonus a few remixes made by Finnbarr.

Freeform fanatics, it's time to delve into the tracklist. If you've never heard of Finnbarr, let this mix be your introduction. And I would urge you to do some research after: this man deserves credit for his music!

What a wicked tracklist, and what a wicked mix! I've really enjoyed myself, listening to this fine Freeform mix. Me and the missus had a few rough days due to family bereavement, so to come back to the UK, we had to quickly adapt to normal life. For me this mix was the key reason why I'm smiling now. It's good, and it reminds me of Bournemouth (quick Google search showed me it was indeed Bournemouth: BMH Freeform).

The good ol' days. Wicked Freeform. What else would you like to hear? And the best thing is, is the fact that Finnbarr knows how to make excellent Freeform music, so all records used for this mix are good. Well, 'Tobor The Robot' is something different. Still need to get used to this mindf*ck of a record. But let's dive straight into the best record of this mix, and probably the main reason why I love Finnbarr's music...

'Beauty & The Beat'. Have you ever heard this record before? It's just pure magical. That's my kind of Freeform.

Got to give M@rt!n-J credit again for another wicked dedication mix, and credit to Finnbarr, for being a fantastic producer. Sadly slightly underrated, but hopefully this mix will get people talking, and more interested in Finnbarr.
