RengDengDeng Contest Mix By Rave System (2016)
It's Friday everyone! Time to get ready for the weekend, and have I got a nice mix for you all!? A mix uploaded 6 years ago, for this DJ contest, to play at the 10th anniversary of Reng Deng Deng. I've never been to a Reng Deng Deng gig, but this one seemed to have a decent line-up, with artists such as Dyprax, D-Passion, Neophyte, Noize Suppressor, Art Of Fighters, Ophidian vs Ruffneck, Tieum, and more. To play among these great DJs is an honour, and it's nice to see that it still happens (well, at least 6 years ago). Don't know if it's still a big thing, DJ contests, but it's great to give a newcomer a stage to perform at.
I'm not sure who won, but maybe a quick side story as to why I found this mix: I was listening to a Millennium Hardcore set and heard a Masters Of Ceremony song, and went searching for other sets that included this specific song. And voila, this mix appeared. So even though I'm 6 years late, I'm still on it, and enjoying it...
Don't know anything about the artist, so let's focus on this set. It's got some big songs. Some really big dancefloor songs. And even though this set is only 34 minutes long, it packs a punch. And of course it's got that one Masters Of Ceremony song I love. Wish there were more appreciation mixes focussed on Neophyte and MoC, they deserve everything. They made some serious goose bump enticing records.
Let's dive straight into the tracklist and see which tracks Rave System used for this contest mix..
Masters Of Ceremony - Rocking With The Best
DJ Neophyte vs Tha Playah - Still Nr. 1
Tha Playah - Bling Bling (DJ D vs Nitrogenetics Remix)
Furyan & Kasparov - Nightfort
Dyprax - The Future (Tha Playah Remix)
Angerfist feat Dyprax - Afraid Of Me
DJ Mad Dog - Good Old Times
The Viper & Nosferatu - Kingdom Come
Angerfist feat N-Vitral - The Envy
Titan & DV8 Rocks!- Flip Uhm op Zn Kantje (Tha Playah Remix)
This is short but sweet. 10 tracks, and obviously starting with a big crowd pleaser. That's the way I would like to see a set start. Good choice to start with MoC, but then the beats, bass, and melodies keep on proceeding. 34 minutes of pure pleasure, that's for sure.
This mix hasn't got a lot of plays, but deserves more. Really cool tracks, and even though I found this because of its first record, it's not my favourite in this set. Can you believe it? All this effort, and wouldn't even choose it as my favourite? Well, that's because 'Bling Bling' is in here, which is one of Tha Playah's finest records ever. Fight me in the comments, if you dare.
I can keep this review short and sweet, the same as this mix. This is a very good mix, and has made my day. So many great records in here, some sadly underrated. But certainly cool enough to keep me going throughout the day. My energy levels are way up there, and if you want to fly through today and land into the weekend quicker than expected, check out this mix!
