Unreleased Showcase (2022)
The weekend has landed. And it's looking great: sun is shining, and the temperatures are slowly going the right direction. And what is it that I'm doing? Sitting indoors with my laptop on. But I was thinking 'why not have some nice and exclusive music play through whatever media player it is you are using?'. And for that, we are going to listen to Chris Blaylock's mix, posted roughly a month ago, and it contains only unreleased tracks. And boy, are these unreleased anthems big!
According to his Soundcloud comment for this mix, this mix contains bootlegs, reworks, and unofficial tracks. And some of these tracks are humongous! And when I use that word, I don't use it lightly. I do actually mean it. It is good to hear some big anthems being reworked or remixed, and sometimes these songs are even better than the original. But that's up to you to decide, and the only way to do that, is to sit back, relax, and press play.
I haven't even mentioned what kind of music it is. But if you haven't figured it out by looking at the image above, are you really into dance music? This mix is packed to the max with Trance anthems. An hour and a half pure pleasure for your ears, carefully mixed together by Chris Blaylock. I can't think of anything else I'd rather be doing right now. So, if you haven't paid attention yet, here's the tracklist:
L.S.G. - Netherworld (Ciaran McAuley Remix)
Digger - The Church Of Ra (Arielle & Andrist Remix)
Above & Beyond presents Tranquillity Base - Razorfish (Steve Allen & Cris Grey Rework)
Super8 & Tab - Helsinki Scorchin (Chris Metcalfe Remix)
Thomas Datt - 2v2 (Tau-Rine Bootleg)
Bart Claessen - Playmo (Perrelli & Mankoff Rework)
The Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition (Blashear Tech Rework)
Daft Punk - Harder Faster (Liam Melly Remix)
The Prodigy - Omen (R.E.L.O.A.D. Rework)
Rebuke - Along Came Polly (Greg Downey Rework)
Ava Max - Tom (Renegade System Remix)
Yves Deruyter - Back To Earth (ShockForce Remix)
Tomaz vs Filterheadz - Sunshine (Omega Drive Bootleg)
Umek - Gatex (Jonny Haslett Rework)
Sinead O'Connor - Troy (Darren Hall Rework)
Sean Truby - Hooked (Ehren Stowers & Zach Zlov Remix)
Brainbug - Nightmare (TR2 Remix)
Miss Shiva - Dreams (Honan Remix)
The Prodigy - No Good (Liam Melly Rework)
Mauro Picotto & Ricardo Ferri - Time To Wake Up (Project 8 Tech Mix)
Matti Loomanen - Flakes (Kev Wild & Factoria Rework)
G-Spott - No Comment (Lucas Deyong Bootleg)
Obviously most of these tracks I know, and I know them because I know the original version of them, but now I'm being shaken to my core. So the originals are great tracks, but are these unreleased records hidden gems? Are they even better than the original? Or just OK-ish?
I have to say that I'm loving the vibes. It's something different, something exciting, yet something oh so familiar. And to be fair, I wasn't expecting to see two The Prodigy records and a Daft Punk song in here. But it's the weekend: who gives a flying fuck?
A glorious mix, and one I would urge you to listen to. If you want to hear something different, listen to Chris Blaylock's latest mix. He's also done a second version of this Unreleased Showcase mix, which I would urge you to listen to too. But for now, give this mix a go.
Best record? 'Along Came Polly'. Big, very big track.
Oh, and another bonus (for all those music freaks out there): it's a free download! So enjoy it anywhere and everywhere.
