Mike Air Presents Summer House Classics - July 2021

Only a month ago did I find a new mix by Mike Air, and I really liked it. I liked it so much, it must have had some effect on my wife, as she also enjoyed the mix a lot. Mike kindly informed me, after sharing the blog, that he did make one in the past, back in 2021, which had a similar kind of vibe. Normally I would not review a mix by the same artist that soon after the latest one, but I had to do it. The Summer is around the corner, and the wife wanted to hear something new and refreshing, hence why this mix got selected.

And the tracklist looks amazing. That's the main reason why I'm talking about this mix. Mike Air picked so many recognisable anthems, and you'll know all of them. And they were all released around the Millennium: the oldest being from 1999 to the 'youngest', which was released in 2004. Still 20+ years ago, if you think about it. But age doesn't matter, as the songs still sound amazing, and fresh.

I love it when I hear anthems from when I was younger. And the Millennium years are the best, if truth be told. Well, the 90s were great too. Oh, and so were the 80s. Damn. Well, at least the songs are great, and Mike has picked some big hitting dancefloor anthems for his mix. You will know what I mean by that, once you look a bit further down, at the tracklist. Because they were the biggest hits, and were everywhere. And I'm not exaggerating. They were everywhere.

Let me show you the tracklist, so you'll know what I'm talking about:

  1. Stardust - Music Sounds Better With You (Original Mix)

  2. X-Press 2 feat David Byrne - Lazy (Original Mix)

  3. Cassius feat Steve Edwards - The Sound Of Violence (Narcotic Thrust Two Minute Warning Club Mix)

  4. Roger Sanchez - Another Chance (Original Mix)

  5. Jakatta - American Dream (Different Gear Remix)

  6. Groove Armada - Superstylin' (Groove Armada Discotek Mix)

  7. Röyksopp - Poor Leno (Jakatta Mix)

  8. Layo & Bushwacka! - Love Story (Tim Deluxe Remix)

  9. The Shapeshifters - Lola's Theme (Main Mix)

  10. Bob Sinclar - I Feel For You (Original Mix)

  11. Michael Gray feat Shena - The Weekend (Extended Vocal Mix)

  12. Deepswing - In The Music (Original Mix)

  13. Spankox - To The Club (Highpass Club Mix)

  14. Mark Knight - Non Stop Rock (Vocal Mix)

  15. Bob Marley vs Funkstar De Luxe - Sun Is Shining (Funkstar Club Mix)

You know what I find annoying? You would never guess, but let me explain myself. A few of these songs are so annoying, it hurts. Once you hear them, they won't leave your head for not just a few minutes, but sometimes hours, or even days. They are extremely catchy songs, and thankfully I grew up listening to probably the most catchiest era ever. I can't even remember naming a present day song in the chart with the same catchy capacity as these songs.

What happened to most of these artists? They were literally everywhere, and now they aren't. I remember buying so many compilations and these songs were on them. Some even had multiple hits and kept on being on the charts, but now they aren't. Why does time fly by too damn quickly?

It's the catchy element which can be annoying, but I'm still a sucker and press play again, because I want to hear these songs again. A fantastic selection by Mike. It's as good as the previous mix I wrote about. And I love the fact that these songs are played as long as they could, no short edits, but full extended versions! Kudos for that1

'The Weekend' has got to be the catchiest of them all. Catchier in 2004, way before Pokémon Go became a thing.

A solid mix, and as the temperatures are going up this week, a good one to listen to. Shorts, flip flops, and good music. Summer of 2024, you can commence.
