This mix opens with "Gonna Get Ya" by Picotto vs. Papini, a combination of Papini's old school dance track "Church of Nonsense" remixed with Picotto's "Lizard (Gonna Get Ya)." But the music stumbles following this solid flashback opener. Tracks are glaringly less heavyweight, with "Ibiza Sunset" and "(Feels So) Good To Be Alive," but the vibe picks up again with Zentribe's "Let The Music Flow," featuring Linda Newman. Her sincere vocals add a down-to-earth, human quality to the simple, uplifting song. There's a nice, tranced-out take of Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va" by Tito Puente Jnr (featuring India). Pienaar's mix has a nice melodic flow that touches on many areas. There's the over-the-top drama fest about feeling "Alive" by the Mitchell Project vs. Ibiza Knights, while Kate Smith and P.H.A.T.T. bring out another emotional vocal track that holds depth, "Worlds Apart." The record closes on an anthemic note with "A Feeling" by Connected (featuring Max C) and "Motion Theory" by Melodia. While this isn't a seamless mix the emotion of the music makes it a nice listen.
