'Fun For The Whole Family'. That's written on the above image. Well, I might disagree, but it could be a very sarcastic statement by Lil Texas. Because it would certainly not apply in my household. No one, and I mean no one does appreciate the harder styles more than me. But leave the entertainment in the hands of Lil Texas: he's got our back. And if you seek entertainment, he will certainly bring a smile on your face with his latest SUMMER MIX. But be warned: if you've never heard of Lil Texas before or aren't a fan of the harder styles, you might need protection. No, not condoms, you silly sausage, you need ear protection. Because this set is hard as nails!

I have listened to Lil Texas' previous mixes, and they always seem to be as random as f*ck. Not your standard hard mix, but a mix that cannot be classed as 'normal'. That's good though, don't get me wrong, but it's certainly one that stands out. The way he puts the mix together, it's a mashup of everything he can find. A bit like having cereal with the first liquid you find in the fridge: if it's milk, it's OK. If it's coke or apple juice, it's wrong. It works, but wouldn't advice to give it a try. Where the f*ck am I going with this? I've lost the plot....

See! That's what this mix does to me. I've already played it 5 times in a row today, and my mind is mashed up. It's more like mashed potato up there, instead of actual brains. He does whatever he sees fit, and in a weird way it works. From Uptempo to UK Hardcore (the happy side of UK Hardcore) to Hardstyle to Hardcore to Terror to whatever you want to call it. It's all in this mix. Sometimes a mix doesn't need to make sense, as long as it's making your ass move. And it certainly did. My ass has been moving up and down on my office chair... WFH has got its perks!

I've now heard it so many times, I can actually dream this mix. I can hear it in my head, and know which track comes next. As weird as the build up is toward the end (not really there, it builds up throughout the set constantly, goes up and down BPM wise), it's as weird as you expect it to be. But I'm feeling it. It's something unordinary. Something different. Why make the same mix like thousands of others have made, or be different? You stand out for being different, right?

As hard as nails this mix might be, it's one of the softer tracks that got me. Technikore's song with Jennifer Rene. What a monster track. It's nice to see UK Hardcore slowly making its way into the wider world, and it's reaching a bigger audience. It's cool!

A weird, quirky, but very cool set. And maybe that's how this Summer should be. Different, quirky, yet exciting. Don't be a fool and be boring, be unique and fresh. Be like Lil Texas.

You might like or dislike this set, but that's your problem to sort out. Why not have a listen to this, and see if you agree to the listeners already (me included), or disagree with them? What's your opinion? Happy to hear your thoughts!

Ps. this comes as a free download, but I don't have Spotify (can you believe it?). If you do, you are in luck!
