I know that there are many Fracus & Darwin fans out there, but not many upload mixes dedicated to them. This is a rather unique one, because it’s a dedication mix with a few well known tracks, and also a few exclusive tracks, tracks you probably haven’t heard of beforel! arpz uploaded this mix a couple of days ago onto Soundcloud, and send the Crazy Dutchman a message, saying that I should check this out. Well, I’ve done that, and now it’s time to talk about this unique and rather interesting mix.
arpz is a huge Fracus & Darwin fan, and so am I. So to find a dedication mix on Soundcloud brought a huge smile on my face. I’ve been following them for many years, and I’ve got every album they’ve ever released. I nearly have everything, but not the well talked about USB stick, which contained one special track being remixed by Fracus & Darwin, and if you did purchase the USB stick, you could have voted between 3 tracks, and the winner would get the F&D treatement. I never knew which track people picked, but now I know: it was Nimrod’s ‘Shine A Light’. I’m not sure what else was on the USB stick, seeing as I didn’t purchase it, because I was too late (as usual), but it seems that the USB stick is something I should have purchased. I’m regretting not buying it right now. I should have. Damn.
Not only are there tracks in this mix which you could have found on your USB stick, but arpz used tracks from several compilations such as ‘DJ Tools’, ‘Happy Hardcore Underground’ and ‘Bang! – The Big Bang Theory’. All tracks were made or remixed by the legendary Fracus and Darwin, so it’s one mix you should download immediately. Why waste your time scrolling the internet for filth, when you’ve got a wicked mix right in front of you?

A good looking tracklist! 10 reasons are in this mix why you should follow Fracus & Darwin and HU on Facebook, and start purchasing stuff right now!
The tracks arpz has selected are all good, but there’s one track that took my breath away: ‘Delete The Weak’. The mid-section is so good, the bass nearly destroyed my speakers, and my eardrums. This is the best track in the mix, without a doubt. But let’s not underestimate the other tracks, they are solid as a rock too. But Darwin always knows how to give a track a twist, and don’t we all love tracks with a twist?
Worst track? Erm, none. I haven’t heard a track which sounded bad. They all sound amazing, and interesting. There are some issues during this mix, the crossfading doesn’t always work beautifully, and at one point the sound became so distorted, it nearly blew my speakers into a million pieces! But that aside, a nice mix to hear on this cold and dreary day.
arpz has made a nice mix for us all to hear, and we should. Let’s embrace UK Hardcore’s finest duo, Fracus & Darwin, and dance the night away, or whenever you press play. They are making excellent music, and hopefully they will do it until the end of days! Where would we be without Fracus & Darwin? Exactly, nowhere!
