M@rt!n-J - Have You Got Stamina! (2016)
Time for Freeform. It's Wednesday, or in our scene it's called 'Freeform-day'. But so is Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and let's not forget Sunday. 7 days a week it's Freeform for those who have embraced it. Sadly there aren't many, but those who do love it, show their love and dedication for it. And many show appreciation for the biggest label in the game: Stamina Records.
During the beginning it was Nu Energy who ruled, but they faded away, and Stamina Records came, saw, and conquered literally everything. They are the biggest label in the world. And one of those labels that, if you come across it, you show your respect to. I don't know how to describe it, but Stamina is the label I refer people to, if they want to know what Freeform is. Yes, there are other labels out there, but truth be told: Stamina Records is the biggest, baddest, and boldest. (not saying that A.B is bold). But they deliver ALL the time. Never seen a disappointing release. They always release the finest of the finest.
M@rt!n-J, TCD's regular, made this two years ago, and I seriously don't know why this has been shown on my timeline. But for whatever reason it has shown on it, it made me listen to it. And also show appreciation for him: his Soundcloud page is always filled with brand new mixes, and you name it, he has made a mix for it! Respect to him!

There we go. A proper Freeform tracklist. Can't even believe that this album is a few years old! Only had in my hands the other day, and it still looks and sounds amazing! Freeform does age extremely well. Not humans, we do not age well, but Freeform remains awesome. Obviously excluding the early TranceCore sound, that sounds extremely outdated. But not the present day Freeform.
Anyway, M@rt!n-J has done it again. A really good mix with a lot of epic records. I don't know which record I selected before from this album, but I have to say that 'Codex' is now my favorite. It might change in 2 years time, but for now it's the dancefloor smasher, so underrated. But so is all of Freeform.
He has improved, the DJ. There are a few mixing errors, but if you compare this mix to his latest stuff, he has learned and well improved. So let's give him some credit for not remaining the same lol.
This mix has made my day, it really has. I've really enjoyed it. And it took me back to the moment I received the album in the post. I think I must have played it at least 26 times before I got slightly bored of it.
Fuck it, I will press play again. Live life on the edge, eh?
