Monkey Kong Presents: The Summer Of Hardstyle 2022

The Summer is here. It literally started yesterday (which is a coincidence, as I just Googled it, as I didn't know the start date). Time to get out of our cocoons and show our true colours again. And gain a nice colour too, but make sure you use factor 50. Whatever you do during the Summer, make sure you do it safely. Most of us might go on a holiday, or some go to big events and rave their arses off. Or some do both, if they've saved up enough cash. Whatever it is you are going to do, make sure we make the Summer of 2022 the best one we've had in the last 3-4 years. Especially now COVID-19 is not fully gone, but we've all embraced it, and been vaccinated. Life can return to normal....

So to start the Summer, let's start with a Hardstyle mix by Monkey Kong. His Soundcloud channel is the place to be, if you are a Hardstyle lover. A lot of mixes can be found on his Soundcloud, and if you haven't checked Monkey Kong's page, you should.

Let's talk about this mix. It's a Hardstyle mix, focussed on the Summer period. What does that mean? Does that mean all are fluffy songs, and all as sunny as the Fresh Prince's 'Summertime'? Well, they are fluffy, but I would like to use the word uplifting, it's more suitable. The tunes selected are all anthems that can be played at any event, but preferably at events taking place in the open space, the outdoors. It just comes to fruition more when the sun is beaming down on your scalp, and the atmosphere is generally much better: people are happier and more upbeat. So the tunes do reflect our generic state of mind when the sun comes out.

And of course Monkey Kong's selection is filled with the finest and uplifting Hardstyle anthems money can buy. If this doesn't get you moving, nothing will.

Yes, yes, yes! The sun is out, guns are out! Time to get rid of the long sleeved shirts, and time to wear short sleeved shirts, or even no shirt (if you are confident to show off, which I'm not). And if you are lucky and booked a ticket to go to an event near you, have fun! Enjoy the Summer of 2022.

I sadly cannot go raving this year. Bought ourselves a new house, so all the money goes into that. But maybe 2023 will be the year for me, the year I'll turn 40. But until then I need to sit behind my computer and watch YouTube & Facebook videos of people having fun at events. I feel jealous, but happy at the same time. Life can return to normal. Hopefully this COVID-19 was the only big virus in our lifetime, and we can continue as normal.

Monkey Kong's mix is tight, with a few serious dancefloor hits. These will certainly get you going, and will get you excited for what's to come. A Summer of happiness and excitement.

I really enjoyed this set a lot. When I was driving the wife to work this morning, I had the windows down, volume at max, and enjoyed this a lot. Couldn't care less if I woke up most of North London, but that's just part of the deal: you allow me to stay in this country, so be awoken by awesome music. And of course, hearing Frontliner's 'Summer'... that's just the perfect Summer anthem!

Cool mix! If you haven't checked it out yet, do it now!
