Sa.Vee.Oh - My Old School Side Set (2012)

The other day I was reviewing a Qlimax appreciation mix, and one of the songs in it, was made by a producer called Sa.Vee.Oh. His 'Loop Hole' song was released back in 2003, and that's the song I know the artist from. And the song is an absolute dancefloor smasher. But unfortunately, and I'm being honest here, that's the only thing I know of the artist. But because of that limited knowledge, I went looking for some more, and did I find something? Yes, otherwise what's the point behind this review?

The mix is an oldie. 12 years old. And I only discovered it a few days ago. But it's been on my mind ever since. It was made by Sa.Vee.Oh, and it's a big one. Filled with forgotten anthems, tracks you don't hear that often, which is obviously a pity. You need more of these anthems, and you need to hear them maybe once a week, or maybe even daily. They were anthems for our generation, but should also be anthems for future generations!

As mentioned before, don't know much about the artist, and their Discogs page is quite empty. But obviously 'Loop Hole' is a big anthem, but not the only anthem he's made. You can find a few in this mix, including versions of amazing songs you might not have encountered before.

Normally I would give you some feedback about the artist, but I think that's down to you, the reader. Please educate me, if you know a bit more about this artist.

This is a nice blend of Hard Dance anthems. A bit of Hard Trance and Hardstyle. I love it. And it's carefully mixed by Sa.Vee.Oh. I wasn't fully aware of this producer's capabilities, but now I'm in awe. He might not have released many songs, but those that he did, are certifiably bangers!

It's an hour long, and you get a nice variety of 'old' anthems. It's an hour of your life you won't get back, but it is all worth it. A few of his own productions are in here, which is the reason why I checked it out in the first place, as I was curious to hear other songs, not just 'Loop Hole'.

Back in 2012, when this mix was released, the song 'Electro Bass' was about to be released, so it was a promo for this mix, to get everyone ready for this song. What a big anthem it is! It sets the tone for the rest of this mix. But here are two songs I go back to, every single time, and it is....

The first two songs. 'Subwayz' and 'Electro Bass'. The rest of the mix is awesome too, but these two songs are just sublime. I hear them on repeat, and both of them don't disappoint me. They are really energetic anthems, and I love them.

It's a solid mix, and I'm happy to have found it. And my interest for the DJ has only increased. I need more Sa.Vee.Oh in my life!

What happened to this earlier sound? Why has it disappeared? More of this sound, please!
