Nexus Presents: Festival Feeling 2020
2020 will be known as the year when no festivals took place. Slowly we are getting out of the misery that's COVID-19, but we have missed out on a lot of events, and even the big ones that should have taken place during the Summer, have cancelled due to the safety of the visitors, and the risk such an event might have. So we might see a few events take place, but not as many as last year. The world has woken up to online events, which are obviously more boring. Who sits still during a livestream? We want to stomp our feet onto the ground, and raise our fists in the air. We need to be at a festival to have that special feeling. 2020, you can fuck off.
2020 is a horrible year. The only escape most of us have, is to find music online. And today I've found a mix by DJ NexuS. Not aware who's behind the name, but the mix is focussed on the Euphoric Hardstyle sound. Some new and some old records in here. This to celebrate what we are sadly missing. But you do get the festival feeling when you press play. All records selected are 'happy' tunes. They make you want to stomp your feet even harder onto the ground.
A wide variety of artists. An hour of Euphoric Hardstyle, who doesn't want to hear that? Well, if you fancy a bit, here's the tracklist:

A tracklist and a half. So many great producers in here. DJ NexuS has selected the big guns for his Summer mix. Nice and heavenly Hardstyle. Who doesn't want to hear that?
It is true, this mix is packed with festival anthems. These tunes won't go amiss during an event. You need to hear them, standing next to thousand speakers, in a field, when darkness hits, and the lasers + fireworks demolish your eyes. That's when you feel alive and the happiest. In a field of mud? Who cares, as long as we have got the music and sick ass lasers. The peep noise you have days after the event/festival took place is really a good feeling; it means you partied hard. But don't overdo it, permanent ear damage isn't funny. Being deaf is shite.
The Euphoric anthems are coming at you, through your speakers. A good selection by NexuS. Some aren't really particularly good, like 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and 'Komon', but I would appreciate them once I'm at the festival, drunk as a skunk. But here, sitting in my living room, listening to these records, it doesn't do a single thing for me.
The other 23/24 anthems are really what I wanted to hear. I love the cheerfulness in each record. It just sounds like the Summer is about to happen, and the festival season has started. I don't know how else to describe it. But not in 2020. Festival Indoors. Indoors as in your own home. Pff.
Too many great anthems to choose from. But the one that has been my favourite for quite a while now, is 'Lost In Paradise' by Max Enforcer. If you don't know it, are you event a party animal?
The mix is good, a few 'meh' records, and some small errors in there. But you can still feel the festive spirit surrounding it. Worth checking it out!
