DJ Slipmatt, a legend, a pioneer in the Rave game, has been on the radio for two whole years with his ‘World Of Rave’ show. Two years of madness, two years filled with awesome music. When the show first appeared on the radio, I was a regular listener, but after a while he changed the day and I couldn’t listen to it that often anymore. I am gutted, it brought a smile on my face every time I heard his show, but thankfully we’ve got Mix and Soundcloud, on which you can find each and every episode the Godfather of Rave has ever made.

When the show first started, it was only broadcasted via Slipmatt’s own website, and now it’s on several radio stations, such as Koollondon, Demand UK, Spin City Radio, Rejuve, and many more. You can hear Slipmatt’s World Of Rave nearly every day of the week via several internet radio stations, and during his first 2 years he has achieved a lot. He has made a small radio show turn into a huge radio show, with thousands of listeners all over the globe.

Every week he gives us Rave lovers exactly what we need, a show filled with Rave music from start to finish. Seeing as he’s been in the game for many years, his record collection is quite huge and impressive, and his shows are packed with the finest tunes selected by Slipmatt himself. He does know a thing or two when it comes to Rave music, but there’s a reason why he’s such a legend: he’s been in the game for many years, so his knowledge is tremendous. He’s known as the Godfather of Rave, and that title wasn’t just given because of his age, it was given to him because he was (and still is) a pioneer. Been in the game since the early days and single handedly changed the scene, this man has earned his respect, and to this day he will get the respect he deserves. A pioneer, and a legend.

I haven’t listened to the show for a long time, so I thought I give it a go. But there are a few questions in my head: what happened to Rhodesy’s section, and the weather forecast by the lovely Rachel? And wasn’t the show 2 hours long? Boy, I’ve not listened to the show for ages! Time to get back into it.

Tracklist anyone?

tracklist

01. Doug Lazy – Let It Roll
02. Fast Eddie – Yo Yo Get Funky
03. Masters Of The Universe – Check It Out (Hit ‘n’ Run Mix) 
04. Alex Lee – Take It! (Vital Ital Version) 
05. Electric Choc – Shock The Beat
06. 1st Prodject – Right Before
07. Acen – Close Your Eyes (‘XXX’ Mix) 
08. Pandemic – Slammin’ (Original Sheer Panic Mix) 
09. The Family Foundation – Xpress Yourself (Ragga Rave Mix) 
10. LTJ Bukem – Atlantis (Nixon Remix/Remake) 
11. NRG – He Never Lost His Hardcore
12. N-Joi – Boom Bass
13. The Anthill Mob – Black Rushin’
14. Acen – The Life And Crimes Of A Ruffneck
15. DJ Anthems – Vol 1 (Carl Cox Remix)

17. DJ Dubplate – Free Your Soul
18. DJ Slam – Looking Into The Light
19. Future Primitive – We’re Flying (Vibes & Wishdokta Remix) 

Will you look at this? Only a true pioneer can create such a wicked tracklist! This is amazing! Too many great anthems in here.

The Godfather’s show is as good as it was when I listened to it every week. And this week it was a very special episode: World Of Rave’s 2nd year anniversary! And not only that, it was Slipmatt’s birthday. Don’t ask me his age, because I simply don’t know, but he’s not a young one, eh? But with age comes experience and knowledge, and you can tell that his knowledge is immense. He could write a book about everything he knows about Rave music. One book we would all read!

Even though I miss Rachel and Rhodesy, the show’s still good. Only an hour long, but an hour filled with awesome tunes. Carefully selected, mixed and scratched by Slipmatt himself. The best track in this mix? Oh, that’s a difficult one, there are several. But the one with the nastiest bass wins: ‘Right Before’. Brilliant track: whenever I hear it, I want to dance like that bloke from the Prodigy in their video ‘Firestarter’. Going absolutely bonkers.

Anything bad to mention? Not at all. A good show for those who love their Oldskool tunes, presented by the man who reshaped the scene: Slipmatt. World Of Rave has become an established show, a well respected show, and if you have never heard it before, why not listen to it every week? Via Slipmatt’s website you can find all the details regarding the show. This show won’t disappoint you.

Oh, WOR isn’t just a radio show. Check out their website for more information: they’ve got a whole cloathing line! They sell shirts etc, and who doesn’t want to buy them?

Slipmatt, I am sorry for not listening often. I will listen to it again. I’ve missed your show a lot.

The other day I was browsing, like most days, and I found this new mix for you all to have, which is at first a weird looking mix, made by Two Friends. It’s called ‘Big Bootie Mix’, and it might scare people off, thinking it’s only for ladies with a big bootie, but don’t you worry, no matter what size bootie you have, you can download this bad boy right now, and shake whatever you got. Don’t assume that you need to dance naked (seeing as there’s a two piece bathing suit hanging on a washing line), dance with whatever you have got on. The main thing you need to know is that this mix is for everyone, including you!

I’m on the Internet every day, and every day you see new names appear. I never heard of Two Friends before, but looking at their biography on Facebook gave me all the info I needed. Two Friends who really love music, and like to spread their passion via their mixes. It’s not a standard mix if I compare it to the standard mixes I hear, but one I thing I’ve noticed, is that a lot of EDM DJs do mashups, and a lot. Two Friends’ mix is filled with mashups too, one second you are listening to some smooth EDm tunes, and the next second you are listening to Maroon 5, Eart, Wind & Fire, Green Day, etc. Jumping from one style to the next is the way forward, and frankly I do like it. This mix is quite unusual, if you look at the tracks they’ve selected, and mashed up.

I think it’s time to look at the tracklist, because it’s amazing!

Truth be told, I thought this tracklist was easy to copy and paste, but it wasn’t. So I had to type the whole bloody thing, and this has got to be one of the longest tracklists I’ve ever seen! So many tracks were used to compose this mix, unbelievable! As I said, one second you are playing a wicked EDM track and the next you are listening to Hip Hop or Pop. Two Friends have made the ultimate tracklist, but is it the ultimate mix?

It’s a good mix, a nice flow from the first second to the last. Also it’s not focussed on one style only, which is quite catchy. The amount of tracks Two Friends have used is amazing, and diversity is the word that pops in my head after hearing this mix.

Really worth a download. I’ve got nothing else to add. There are so many great anthems in this mix, I can’t pick one, I simply can’t. Normally I can choose one, but this ain’t your standard mix, is it?!

The Summer can start now, and hopefully it will. Two Friends’ mix is a good one to dance to during a sunny day, whilst having a cocktail in one hand, and the other one is way up in the air. You can listen to this mix in the Winter, but it doesn’t have the same effect.

Again, you don’t need a big bootie too listen to this mix. I certainly don’t have one, and I still appreciated it a lot.

It’s been 2, nearly 3 years since we last were amazed by a new phenomena on Facebook/Youtube. A video emerged, obviously focussed on the harder styles, but what was it? We were guessing, anticipating, and after a couple of days we were rewarded with a free album, which had 21 free tracks on it. In the meantime they also released another album, which I completely missed, which was called ‘Rebellious’, which had 30 tracks on it, made by well established names in the industry. Now they are back with a brand new album, containing 26 tracks, and again it’s all for free. Ps. if you want the previous albums, you can go onto Soundcloud and find them all.

On this album, you can find a lot of wicked tunes made by artists such as AniMe, Tommyknocker, Alien T, Nosferatu & Art Of Fighters, Mad Dog, Tha Playah, Neophyte, The Viper, Meccano Twins, Andy The Core and more. You might wonder why these artists decided to give away free music?! Well, This Is Hardcore is a devoted collective of world class Hardcore artists and fans. If you realy want to know the reason behind TiH, you can watch a documentary (which you can find on their website), and all will become clear. But to be brutally honest, it’s an amazing underlying thought that keeps these guys/girl going. They’ve changed the Hardcore scene completely, and the result is astonishing.

It’s a good time to release a new free album, seeing as the Summer is about to start, and many festivals are planned in the upcoming months, so many occassions for Hardcore lovers to see and hear their most favourite artists. To make sure that everyone knows the reasons why they’ve started this collective, this album can be downloaded right now, and played out loud. Hardcore is here to stay, and it doesn’t have the intention to leave any time soon. Hardcore is a way of living, and if you are already a fan, you know why this sound does so much to us. If you are unaware of its strength, make sure you download this, and experience a new world, a world focussed on bringing you the finest and hardest music available.

Tracklist anyone?

26. Icha feat Alee – Beast

It’s nice to see the well established amongst the few unknown names. A nicely balanced album, and the quality starts from the first second to the last. Let’s not forget and not underestimate this album: producers have given their all to create these anthems, don’t think that it’s free and it’s shit. The tunes are all quality, and carefully made.

Too many great anthems are on this album. It’s really difficult to choose one. But to me the best of this album has got to be ‘It’s Coming’ by Fear Factor. A stunning track by someone I’ve never heard of. Not too hard, not too soft, not too rough, not too soft. Perfect track to play on a sunny Friday.

There are so many solid records on this album, it’s unbelievable how they managed to come up with yet another album and making it all sound fresh, new and exciting. This Is Hardcore is a unique collective, and they keep on reshaping the scene and the sound. I hope they will continue doing what they do best, because what they give us, is fantastic. Quality Hardcore tunes, not for the faintest of hearts, only for the die-hard fans. This Is Hardcore is here to stay!

Only one score for yet another mindblowing album!

Drokz is a legend. I’ve said it before, and I will keep saying it time and time again. He’s a legend within the Hardcore/Terror scene, and since he first emerged into the Hardcore/Terror scene, he has dominated everything. With performances everywhere on God’s given globe, this man puts the Terror music on the map. A living legend, like no one we’ve ever seen. The older he gets, the tougher his music gets. And when it comes to Drokz, he is a generous man too! Last December he released his ‘Full Force Focus’ EP, which was for us all to have (for free), and he keeps on giving stuff to the die hard Terrorheads. Isn’t Drokz fantastic? A true gentleman!

His latest EP, which is called ‘Back Up For My Back Up’, can be found on Soundcloud, and if you have the opportunity to download it, I suggest you do so. It’s yet another EP for us all to have, and it doesn’t cost a single penny. Not only can you find tracks made by Drokz, he has worked alongside artists such as MC Prozac, Dave Dope, DJ Apathy, and Mr Courage. Angernoizer remixed one of the tracks, so you know what to expect.

Terror music always makes me want to loose myself. The music is always too damn hard, not understood by anyone who doesn’t like it, and maybe because of that I like it a lot. Most people will underestimate its strength, but to make sure that these people are put in place, you can share your knowledge and explain that it’s a music style that won’t leave the scene that quickly, seeing as thousands of ravers go to raves weekly, and every Terror room is always crammed to the max. Wherever Drokz goes to, the club/event is sold out, and he always delivers. The music is just too damn good, and from the early days it has attracked a lot of fans, who love it unconditionally. Terror 24/7, 52 weeks a year. I’m part of the Terrorhead gang, even though I don’t wear any shirts or go to raves that often, but I’m a member. And I’m also a huge Drokz fan. But frankly, who isn’t?

Let’s see the EP’s tracklist. Short but powerful!

tracklist

01. Drokz & MC Prozac – Hardcore Bloodline (Unity 2015 Anthem) 
02. Drokz & Dave Dope & DJ Apathy – Start The Madness
03. Drokz & Mr Courage – Busy On A Tempo
04. Drokz – I Am A Terrorhead (Angernoizer Remix) 
05. Drokz – Symphony Of Grief

It’s short but powerful (as I said before). Is it worth a download? Hell yeah, and there are many reasons why you should download this, and let me name two reasons why: the first reason only applies if you are Dutch (seeing as Dutch people are greedy, and want most things to be free), this EP is for free. You only need an internet connection, and as long as you have paid your bills, you can get this for free! The second reason applies to anyone: it’s made by Drokz and various artists! Need more reasons? If you do, you ain’t a Terrorhead.

The tracks are all solid. F**king hard, and they all deliver a punch to your eardrums. I’ve already broke one of my Beats By Some Doctor headphones because I was listening to an old Drokz mix, and my headphone didn’t like it. I reckon that if I listen to this EP with my new headphones I will blow them up too. But which track blows the speakers the loudest, which track will make me want to cover myself in peanutbutter, wear clogs and stick a finger in a dike (that’s a hill to keep the water away from us all, not a lesbian)? ‘I Am A Terrorhead’ is the dopest track. It has a wicked midsection, a lovely HipHop midsection. But when the midsection is over, the beats come flying at you like annoying mosquitos. Angernoizer’s remix is excellent!

A must have EP, and thousands of Terrorheads already downloaded it. Why haven’t you? Give this a go, and trust me when I say it won’t let you down. It’s made by Drokz, for God’s sake!!!!!
