We are all aware of the next HTID event, which will take place on the 3rd of October 2015 at Boxxed in Birmingham. If you haven’t bought any tickets yet, you are going to miss an exclusive event with a killer line-up. Again, if you haven’t seen the line-up, are you really Hardcore, or haven’t you been behind your computer at all for at least a year? The line-up is massive, and it’s a HTID party, and they are always good!

The line-up is absolutely ridicilous! You’ve got 5 teams and also a supporting group of artists, and if I mention the names of all the artists, your mind will explode! Are you ready?

Didn’t I tell you that it’s a killer line-up? I did, didn’t I? Amazing line-up, but there’s another treat for you all in store. If you are going, and you should, there’s a small present to get you all excited: each team has made an anthem for their team.

It has been several months since the last Stamina Records’ podcast, but in all fairness, they have been quite busy with releasing new music, new albums, and performing everywhere. If you go to their website, you can see why they’ve been quite busy, so we accept their apology for not making this a monthly podcast (as they said it was going to be), and move on. Exciting times for our beloved Freeform world: not only a new Stamina Records podcast, but also a new album being released soon, and also a free anthem by A.B, Thumpa and CLSM. Want to know about this? Keep on reading.

Before we start talking about this brand new podcast, I should remind you that A.B, Thumpa and CLSM are performing at HTID Soundwave – Show Two, and each team have made an anthem you can all download. Now the other teams already uploaded their free anthems, but if there’s one you should definately check out, it’s the one that has the three legends in it plus MC Frikshon! Click here and it will take you to Thumpa’s/ReBuild’s Soundcloud page, and you can listen to it yourself.

Normally it’s Douglas and A.B who present the show, but during episode 8 it’s the main man behind ReBuild music Thumpa who talks us through this mix alongside A.B. Don’t think that it will be a full-on serious podcast, a lot of serious stuff will be talked about, but also some funny moments will occur during this podcast. But it’s mainly about the music, and the music has always been good. A lot of the tracks used in this mix will appear on the upcoming album, which is called ‘Freeform Family’. Already a much talked about album, so there’s no need for me to explain what it’s all about. Go to the Stamina Records page, and find it out for yourself!

The tracks are the most interesting bit for me. Thumpa and A.B chatting away is always fun to hear, but it’s a podcast, so let’s show everyone the tracklist (it was kindly uploaded yesterday, so thank you).

tracklist

01. Scott Brown – Touched By Technology
02. Anarchy Breed – There And Back Again
03. jD-KiD – Tsunami
04. A.B – Miami
05. Technikore & Cyrax – Difference (Aethral Remix) 
06. A.B – It’s A Vibe
07. Gammer – Gratuitous Grind
08. Rikki Arkitech & Douglas – False Religion
09. Transcend – What You Are
10. Aryx – Port Of Adia
11. Eufeion & Denile – Smoke & Mirrors (Transcend Remix) 
12. Kaos & Ethos – Get Fucked (Transcend & Cyrax Remix) 
13. Al Storm & Euphony – Give Me My Drugs (A.B Remix) 
14. Obie & Technikore – Mr Hoover
15. Marc Smith & Darwin – Get This Place
16. Tamerax – Roomshaker
17. Sharkey & Rikki Arkitech – Qudraphonics
18. Shox, Dani Delirio & Balu – Metavampiros
19. Skinny – Cut It Up (Marc Smith & Little Fella Remix) 
20. Chris Fear meets Al Storm – Consumed
21. Rikki Arkitech – UVB-76

This is a truly amazing tracklist! It’s good to see that the Freeform scene is still alive and kicking, and the good thing about this podcast is that they play tracks from well known and upcoming artists too. Not only tracks by well established names, but also giving new artists a stage! Bless them.

Before we talk about the other 20 tracks, I have to say that a nerd alarm went off when I saw the last track by Rikki Arkitech, which is called ‘UVB-76′. If you don’t know where he got the name from, it’s a numbers station name. And if you don’t know what a numbers station is, Google it or Wikipedia it and you will become intoxicated by the secrecy behind this. I’m fascinated about numbers stations, so to see a Freeform track having the same name as one of the most famous stations has given me nerd goosebumps. Sadly you can’t hear most of the track, because the boys are doing shout outs.

The rest of the mix is excellent. Carefully selected and carefully mixed. As I said before they have played tracks which you can get soon, if you have pre-ordered the ‘Freeform Family’ album. So many great anthems are in this mix, and they are all excellent. There’s no need to express my emotions, because you all know how much I love Freeform, but again and again they keep on amazing me, the music keeps on progressing and it’s all going the right way! I love the music so much, it’s unbelievable how good it has become. Slightly underrated, but hopefully after HTID’s event there will be more and more fans, because they deserve it! It’s better than UK Hardcore, if I’m honest.

The best track? Oh, this ain’t easy. I do like ‘Mr Hoover’ a lot, ‘Cut It Up’ is a nice and rough track, but the one that took my breath away was ‘Tsunami’. Beautiful, just how I like my Freeform to sound. Epic track.

I didn’t like them talking through the nerdest Freeform track ever made, but there is a solution: maybe I should order the album so I can hear it fully.

This podcast series deserves an award for being the best one out there!

How funny is it to find two Rawstyle sets in one day? Maybe it’s God saying to me to stop listening to other kinds of music and focus on Rawstyle. Well, not a hundred percent sure, but it’s still good to hear new and exciting music through your speakers. Today was an excellent day, if truth be told. It started out as a boring day, but after I’ve pressed play, my day turned 180 degrees. I even found the energy to clean my windows. But enough about this, lets talk about the music and the artist, because I think it’s necessary to mention a small secret to you all: I have never heard of Jason Payne before!

Yes, I know, I am ashamed! I should have known this name, because I’m a so-called reviewer, but every day I explore the world wide web and see new names, and my brains’ already filled with billions of track names and artist names, not a lot more can be handled. But I’m happy to take one name out of my brain and replace it with Jason’s name, because he’s one amazing DJ! His set, which was recorded at Loudfest 2015, has got to be the finest and roughest set I’ve ever heard! I’m in love with this man’s skills, it’s amazing to hear music being played so rough and tough, and yet being able to sound sexy at the same time. Jason played at Loudfest, and his set (besides the quality, which isn’t loud enough….) is absolutely breathtaking!

You think that most sets are awesome, but there’s always one you find which is a lot better if you compare it to those mediocre sets. Jason Payne’s set is, and I’m going to use a tmesis, unfuckingbelievably good! This man knows how to rupture eardrums, and how to do it properly. Damn, why weren’t I at Loudfest? I wish I was there, witnessing this man. This has got to be the best set ever recorded.

Tracklist was kindly provided by Jason himself! Thank you sir, thank you!

Amazing. Haven’t got another word for it, to express my feelings at the moment. This mix is seriously insane, you have to check it out. 11,5k+ have already listened to it. Damn, I always thought that RawCore/RawStyle was still an underground style, an underrated style, but thankfully it’s bigger than I expected.

Jason Payne is my hero. My new hero. Never heard of him before today, but he’s allowed to demolish my speakers, my eardrums and more. He can inflict payne on me (see what I did there?!). This is such an amazing set, it has given me goosebumps and made me rave in my living room. But never as hard as I did today. Damn this mix is tight!

There’s only one small error with this, and that is the quality. You have to put the volume way up to hear the mix properly, but it is worth it. Oh, and it’s also not downloadable. I wish it was. Never have I heard a mix so dope, tight, raw, tough, sexy… before.

Who would have thought that I would explore the music world on a sunday? But the hunt was worth it. Jason Payne is my hero. Name someone who has made a mix this dope before? A mix so good you won’t stop dancing, even after it has ended?

The first mix I want to give 6 out of 5 stars…. because it’s the best ever!

On the 10th of October there’s an event called Madhouze 3.0, and if you live near Kerkdriel or have any mode of transportation, you should check this event out. €10,- entry, and a nice looking line-up. One of the artists has uploaded a promo mix a couple of days ago, and his name is Bionic Rage. Never heard of this man before, but it’s never too late to learn new names, eh? His promo mix is an excellent one, already 4500+ listens on Soundcloud, and many have replied in the same way as others: everyone seems to love it. Hardstyle and Rawstyle in one mix? Are you getting excited yet? You should be, because it’s what we want to hear on a dreadful Sunday morning!

Bionic Rage.. had to Facebook him, but on his Facebook page there isn’t any information at all. Nor on his Soundcloud page. So we only know he’s a DJ, that is all. And that he’s going to perform at Madhouze 3.0, why else would he make a promo mix? It’s a short one, but if you have bought tickets, you get the full extended version of this, live right in front of you. This mix is only a teaser, and it has teased me a lot! Sadly I won’t be in the country on the 10th, but I wish I was. Loving the vibes this mix generates, raw and unedged. Bionic Rage is a new name in my already humangos artist name-list, but it’s in it, and it will never leave. This mix has sparked my enthusiasm, and I want to hear more Bionic Rage….

Tracklist was provided, which is always a good thing!

If you are reading this and it is Sunday morning, I hope you have pressed play already! This will not only open your ears, but wake up the whole neighbourhood. If the police hasn’t rang your doorbell yet, you are not playing this out loud. Turn up the volume and wait for the doorbell to ring!

A wicked mix, it has to be said. Bionic Rage has made a wicked promo mix. Even though I never heard of this man before, his mix has intrigued me. This was exactly what I wanted to hear.

I wish I was near Kerkdriel on the 10th, but I am not. I really want to hear what this man has to offer the crowd at Madhouze 3.0, but if it’s as good as this mix, it’s going to be amazing, and I will regret not going. This is a seriously insane mix, loving it a lot. I haven’t listened to Rawstyle or Hardstyle in a long time, and it’s nice to hear that it’s still going strong, and still sounds as violent as possible!

This mix has given me goosebumps, and nearly a fine from the police! But it was worth it! A wonderful promo mix, you shoul check this man out at Madhouze 3.0 if you can!
