I’M BACK!!!!!

Hello everyone and welcome back to a new and improved MikeyMix!!!

After (what seems like) a long absence I am happy to announce that I am returning from retirement and bringing you all lots more blog posts!!

Although music will forever remain my passion I am pleased to announce that we are undergoing a “revamp”, the revamp is inspired by my recent love for making YouTube videos and thus I will still be reviewing music but I’ll also be dabbling in many other genres of blog post!!

For those who aren’t aware: I currently make YouTube videos (its an attempt to expand the MikeyMix “brand”) and my channel can be found by simply searching “MikeyMixTV”.

In other (more cheesier, some would argue cringier) news: I recently joined Musical.ly! Feel free to follow me my username is @MikeyMixTV!!

Sometime today I will be writing up my review of ‘Swish Swish’ by Katy Perry & Nicki Minaj so look forward to that!

So until next time guys: stay safe, be happy and keep on jammin’!!!

ANNOUNCEMENT: YouTube Channel!!!

Good morning everyone…welcome to MikeyMix! This blog post is going to be very short but I’m just making it to let you all know I’ve recently started a YouTube channel!

The channel itself doesn’t have a specific genre so there’s something for everyone. 

The reason I made a channel is to attract a new form of audience and get the MikeyMix brand on another distribution channel.

I’ll link my first three videos below, any and all feedback is welcome and it would be highly appreciated if you could like and comment on the video and maybe even subscribe to the channel?

Until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jamming!!

Once the Vlogging Stops: Insomnia60 MY EXPERIENCE

Good morning again readers, welcome to today’s second blog post: as promised in my review of ‘The Cure’ by Lady Gaga (which can be found here) I am going to be discussing my experience at yesterday’s Insomnia60 Gaming Festival.

As I believe in fairness I am going to be discussing all the positives and the negatives of the event, I’m expecting this post to be quite a long one so I’ll include a read more link below, however I do recommend reading because it’s going to be good and will definitely be quite eye-opening to some readers.

Lady Gaga: “The Cure” – REVIEW

Good morning readers!! Welcome to MikeyMix, I hope you’re all having a lovely Easter as my weekend has certainly been a good one! I attended Insomnia60 Gaming Festival yesterday and it was such a fun experience (expect a juicy blog post to follow about that as A LOT happened and it was eye-opening….) and now following on from her performance at Coachella Music Festival last night my idol, Lady Gaga, has released a new track!!!

The track is entitled: ‘The Cure’ and it is a feel-good anthem created by Gaga and longtime collaborator and friend DJ White Shadow. The 3 minute 31 second track is exactly what the world needed: a bit of “old Gaga” (that’s not to say that I didn’t adore ‘Joanne’ because I did it’s one of my favourite albums ever made) – the track gives me some serious ‘The Fame’ vibes with a bit of ‘Fashion of His Love’ thrown in.

The beat of the track isn’t overproduced which means Gaga‘s vocals are free to excel (and trust me, they do!), personally I can see this track being a huge summer bop but it will definitely always remain a fan favourite because behind the feel-good sound the track has such a deep, deep message. A message which the world definitely needs right now.

Overall I’ll be giving this track a 4 out of 5 star rating: I’ve had this track on repeat all morning and I fall in love with it with every play, I’d say “welcome back Gaga” but this time she never left, she has once again proven that 2017 is HER year and personally I cannot wait to see her slay the stage in October during the ‘Joanne World Tour’.

‘The Cure’ is available for purchase on iTunes and can be streamed on all music streaming platforms: Apple Music, Tidal and Spotify.

Until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jamming!!

I’M HEADING TO INSOMNIA60!!!

Good afternoon readers!! Welcome to MikeyMix! This blog post is going to be very short and very sweet, if you’ve read the title of this blog post or my review on ‘Still Got Time’ by ZAYN, then you’ll already be aware that I am heading to Birmingham tomorrow (Saturday April 15th) to check out Insomnia60 Gaming Festival.

I’m hoping to run FIVE stories for the event: ‘Going Viral: The Rise of YouTube Gaming Stardom’ (working title), ‘A World Within Our Own: The Advancement of Virtual Reality’ (again, another working title), ‘Insomnia60: The MikeyMix Experience ft Dan’s Cam’ (Daniel is my little brother whom will be coming to the event with me, he’s a huge gamer so it would’ve been foolish for me not to bring him), ‘Insomnia60: What The Fan’s Think’ and finally ‘How To Survive: Insomnia60’ (a new series I’m thinking of running is a ‘How To Surive…’ series in which I basically discuss how to fully enjoy specific events).

Minecraft YouTuber/cover artist TheOrionSound and a representative from VR developers Coatsink have very kindly agreed to speak to me during the event (very excited for that as I love conducting a good interview), if anyone reading this wants to come and have a chat for me to be involved in some of the posts I’ve got planned feel free to! It doesn’t matter whether you’re a YouTuber (no matter how big or small), gamer or just a general attendee come say hello and I’ll gladly hear what you have to say (I’ll be sporting a very fashionable “Press” pass so you shouldn’t miss me!).

Don’t forget to follow me on instagram: @MikeyMixBlog and feel free to add me on Snapchat ‘mikeymixblog’ were I’ll be documenting the entire event tomorrow!

So until next time: stay safe, be happy and keep on jamming!!
