Essential Review - Fake Blood

Ill admit I was pretty surprised when I saw that Fake Blood was awarded an Essential mix for BBC Radio One and Pete Tong. Although Mars was THE song of 2008 he still wasn’t at the level of the artists that who had presented earlier in the year like 2ManyDJ's, Armin Van Buuren and Sander Van Doorn, to name a few. One hour later I was hooked. Breaking from the traditional 2hr set, Keating splits his set up with first hour as a mix for the “club” and the second for the “after party.” Flawlessly working his remixes in with mostly unknown songs, Fake Blood is able to take the best samples from each and put them together in a masterful way. Unlike most Essential Mix’s that start strong, bore for the middle hour, and finish strong, the split mix had presented me with an hour of epic proportions with an hour of bring you back down to normal level. This mix set the tone for what was to be seen at EDC this year, and live he is even better.
