If you're looking for a great go to EDM workout mix that can live on your iPhone/music player, Nervo and Ministry Of Sound might have exactly what you need. It's part of the on going "Inspired" series, where DJs put together a two disc mix full of past, present, and future tracks that have been present through their careers.
Nervo really delivers on the mix, giving the right mix electro, progressive, and yes, even classic house music- keeping the energy up all the way through. It's definitely for those who need a high octane audio source for their workouts.
From a music critique standpoint, our friends over at Magnetic Magazine say on Nervo's "Inspired" Mix:
Nervo executes this mix so flawlessly because they stay true to the oft-forgotten art of DJing. Each song is carefully selected and blended immaculately. The transitions are well thought out and meaningful, designed to take us on a journey. This establishes a loose narrative that helps to unify the compilation. Modern sounds breathe new life into old classics; and old classics serve to remind us where these modern sounds came from.
It’s not easy to create a cohesive mix of music that spans three decades, but NERVO pulls it off with flying colors."
That's good enough for us!
