This mix has gone through so many edits but I finally landed on something i’m really happy with. It’s a little different from my usual mixes in its approach, as i’ve been a little more creative with the transitions and inclusions. The artists who are featured are overall, pretty well known so I tried to mix it up a little in terms of style and atmosphere to always keep the listener on the edge. Looking at the tracklist it’s quite easy to look over a mix like this as the inclusions are somewhat a little obvious in places, and so it ended up being a hall-of fame when it comes to many of my big influences, both old and new.
