I'm still riding the rave train today. First I was fully into Gabber music, and now I'm on a rave buzz. All thanks to our Greek friend GLOWKiD! You might have seen his name here and there on our website, but if you haven't, and you need a quick introduction, here's the introduction: he's a music fanatic from Greece. And he loves everything Rave related. Just look at the above picture, where he's wearing funky green frame colour glasses, a glowstick in his mouth, and a raver t-shirt. How more rave-ish can you get? He is the true definition of a rave fanatic!
So why am I speaking about GLOWKiD? Well, a mix he made appeared on my timeline earlier this morning. A mix for Nü Kvlture. This Serbian based collective have asked the rave fanatic to come up with a mix. And the 39th instalment was mixed together by him. Only 48 minutes long, but within those minutes you get the finest rave anthems. Dancefloor smashers.
How he found these record, God only knows. But most of these are well known to yours truly, but these remixes aren't. So it's a reintroduction for me. A different approach to the already legendary tunes. And after hearing his mix a few times, I had to share it with you all.
When I say classics, I do mean classics. Being revamped obviously, but it's nice to see and hear that these classics are still out there and enjoyed.
Here's the tracklist. Don't salivate too much on your keyboard/phone...

When I typed the tracklist, it made me laugh for a split second. I call myself a rave lover, but don't know any of these records. Well, that's not 100% true: I do know the originals, but these remixes aren't known to me. So maybe I shouldn't call myself a rave lover, but more a rave enthusiast? At least I'm more than a rave noob. Don't want to be that. Got too many years of listening to rave music under my belt, but evidentially less than GLOWKiD.
The mix contains a fair few of really awesome records. A nice selection made by GLOWKiD, but leave that up to him, and you know you won't be disappointed. The man lives and breathes rave music, and his selection shows. Again, how did he find these records, these underground anthems?
All jokes aside, it's a slamming mix. After my full on Gabber and Speedcore morning I had to end it on a high, and GLOWKiD's mix has truly given me everything I needed. Pianos, breakbeats, rave, the lot. It's a mix worth checking out.
The best record? 'Yr So Wet'. Big underground vibes throughout this mix. Love it!
Check this mix out! You will be thanking me (and GLOWKiD after)!
