I can be honest with you all and say that I’m a huge Al Storm fan. For many years I’ve been following him on Twitter, Soundcloud and Facebook, and even though his Facebook is mostly filled with nice family pictures and mainly food pictures (if he wasn’t a DJ, he was Gordon Ramsay the 2nd), you can find posts you really appreciate: free music. Free music you say? Yes, a liveset. All for free, if you have a Soundcloud account ofcourse. In October a lot of UK Hardcore artists went to the States and played in front of a crowd of US ravers, and one of those artists was Al Storm, and his set from this magical night can now be heard on Al’s Soundcloud. Go to it now, and download it (did I mention the fact that it’s for free?).
Whatever he releases, it’s worth gold. He is one of the few artists from the golden age of UK Hardcore who still does what only he does best, and never disappoints the fans. He still manages to capture the sound that many adore, and still make it sound unique and fresh. If you were at HTID USA, he had a few special treats for those who attended: some tracks were specially re-created, and were given the HTID USA treatment. The intro you can hear the man say ‘HTID’, and even throughout ‘Werewolf’ he added the special treatment. Only if you were there you could hear this special version. How awesome is that?
Al Storm is a legend, and I feel like a huge fanboy. I must control my happiness and dedication to spread his music to everyone who wants to read this, but it’s slowely getting out of control. I can not stop saying that he’s a legend, and I’m at this stage that I am about to look online to find merchandise from this man, so I can sleep at night in my Al Storm nighty, or walk around in my Al Storm underpants. No Al Storm tattoos, I’m not that strong, but all the other things I would say yes to. I should seek help for my Al Storm addiction!

Beautiful! If you were there, raving the night away and Al Storm was on the stage while you were giving it all you had, you were in paradise! Al Storm is a genius, and the liveset you are about to listen to is a good showcase of what this man does.And boy, he does it well!
Normally I would point out flaws or errors, but he made none. Nor did he play a crappy tune. He delivered an awesome set, and if you are an upcoming DJ, this is the way to do it! It’s hard to please every listener/raver, but only Al Storm can do what a good DJ should do. Every track he has been working on (remix or original track/collaboration) has been a success. He knows how to produce and mix UK Hardcore, and if I’m honest, this is the best set of Al Storm of all time!
Check out the tracklist. It’s beautiful. Can not name a single bad track at all, but I can’t point out a favourite either! They are all good. Each and every one of them. Is this the best liveset ever? I reckon it is!
Al Storm. A legend. Pioneer. Food lover. But to me the greatest UK Hardcore DJ/producer of all time. Check this mix out, you will not be disappointed! If there’s a raver’s heaven, this is the music you will hear once you enter.
