Twitch DJs & Lockdown Legends Mix (Hard Trance Classics) (2023)

It's Friday, the weekend is about to happen. And I'm ready for the weekend, doing nothing at all. But we still have a few hours of working to do, so we need something to keep us occupied. And have I found the right mix for you all? A mix filled with Hard Trance classics. Isn't that a lovely thing to hear? It's a bit harder and faster, if you compare it to the standard Trance music, but it's still extremely lovely, and very smoothening. Sometimes I do prefer the harder sounding Trance. Strange, isn't it? But hey ho, let's dive straight into this mix.

So I literally found this mix by accident. Someone reposted it, and I jumped right on it. Don't know why, but I think the concept of it being a mix filled with Hard Trance anthems, that's what caught my eye. But I've never heard of the DJ behind this mix, so I went into this mix completely blind. But it was a great experience though, and I've been listening to this over and over.

The DJ behind the mix is Rob Kellaghan, but yeah, never seen or heard his name before. And I'm not even on Twitch. Well, I was, during lockdown, but it never appealed to me. Signed up, watched 2 livestreams, and gave it the usual approach: delete the app. But thankfully we've got Soundcloud, on which a lot of these mixes do appear, including the one you are about to listen to.

What kind of classic anthems did he use for his mix? Well, these:

  1. SHOKK & Nick The Kid - Day Dreams

  2. Avatar - Red Planet (Reverb' s Mix)

  3. Icebreaker - Too Cold (Aquaplex Mix)

  4. Tom Wax, JamX & De Leon - Louder, Softer (Hennes & Cold Mix)

  5. Aquaplex - World Of Innocence

  6. Dave Joy - Second Chase

  7. DJ Wag - Darkness (DJ Wag Original Extended)

  8. Flat 6 - It's Too Late

  9. Aquaplex - Force In Your Head

  10. Embargo - Hysterie (Darkmoon Remix)

  11. Flutlicht - Icarus (Original Daedalus Mix)

  12. Sioux - Cho (Cosmic Gate Remix)

  13. Cosmic Gate - Back To Earth (SHOKK Remix)

  14. Odyssey Of Light - The Breath

  15. Flutlicht - The Fall

  16. Solid Sleep - Heartbeat (Aquaplex Remix)

  17. The Green Martian - Harmonic Minor

  18. DJ Scot Project - F (Future Is Now) (Original Mix)

  19. DJ Discofer - Deep Space (Aquaplex Mix)

  20. Junk Project & Aquaplex - Brightness (Solid Sleep Mix)

This could have also been called the Aquaplex appreciation mix. There's plenty of Aquaplex songs in this mix, that might indicate that the DJ who made this mix, is a fan. And yeah, Aquaplex made some insane records, that's true.

I have to say that, even though I love Hard Trance, I have still a lot to learn, and a lot of records are out there, which I've never heard before. There's a few in this mix that I've not encountered before, but they are now added to my list of excellent Hard Trance anthems. Every day is a new day during which you can learn and appreciate more, right?

It's a good mix. It's got the classics you want to hear, and it's a nice length. All seems to be in favour of this mix, and I agree. I really liked the vibe throughout, and the outcome is a very pleasant mix.

Best record? 'F (Future Is Now)'. Love me a bit of Scot Project.

Maybe I should go back onto Twitch?
