Soundcloud is filled with awesome music, and also mixes from the golden age of Hardcore. As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve only recently moved to the UK, and during the years of me living in my Motherland I have missed out on a lot of compilations, such as the one this review is focussed on. ‘Battle Of The DJ’s’? Never heard of it before. Never seen it before. All brand new, even thought it’s 12 years old. Thanks to RSR Recordings for uploading Ramos, Supreme & Sunset Regime’s mix on this compilation (the second disc was a mix by Force and Styles.
After a quick look on Discogs I found out that the label which released this compilation only released albums in 2003 and 2004, and was run by Slipmatt and DJ Slam. Only 10 releases,and it stopped. Several mixes were released on Beats24-7, and the first one of the ‘Battle Of The DJ’s’ was between Slipmatt and DJ Vibes. After the second volume they stopped. The first CD of the second instalment can be found on Soundcloud, or underneath this review. The mix was done by (as I said before) Ramos, Sunset Regime and Supreme. Thankfully Discogs provided us with a tracklist, where would we be without our friends at Discogs?

As I’ve missed out on most tracks released back in the 90s and 00s, this is for me the perfect way to catch up. Thanks to RSR Recordings and others for uploading ‘old’ albums, which are probably rare to get anyway. The best thing about this? It’s for free! Check it out on Soundcloud right now, and there’s much more if you want to get that Sunday buzz feeling.
It’s weird to say that this mix is 12 years old. Still sounds crisp and sharp. The music scene might have changed, but not the power behind those dancefloor anthems. I am fascinated about the fact that we as humans might age, but music simply doesn’t. I reckon you can still listen to this mix in a 100 years time and it will still sound awesome and epic.
Favourite track? Well, I don’t know the title, I think it’s ‘Age Of Stomp’? The lyrics in my favourite track are ‘I like the things that go boom’. Now I’m not sure if that’s the title of the track (‘Age Of Stomp’), could be the next one, but the one with those lyrics in it is my favourite!
A wonderful mix by Ramos, Sunset Regime and Supreme. Don’t know who won this battle, haven’t heard the second disc yet. There must be a version of it somewhere hidden on Soundcloud, and I will chase it down, so I can compare who actually won. It will be difficult, seeing as the tracklist for the second disc is also a slammer.
