Found this mix the other day online, and I have to say that, even though I have never heard of this DJ’s name, this mix has captured my attention, and I have listened to it already several times, like most of you lot have. Only uploaded 24 days ago, it already has 13.2k+ plays. You might wonder why the high amount, but in all fairness, this mix is really tight and very dope, and that basically the main reason why people have listened to this mix.

This mix captured my attention for several reason, but the main reason being the tracklist! Look at the tracklist, it’s dangerous! I will show you the tracklist in a minute, but you must admit after looking at it that it’s a beauty! Not bound to only one style or one genre, Fawks has picked a lot of tracks from several genres/styles, blended them together into this majestic mix, and the result is good. Bass music, that’s the key element in this mix.

Bass music, who doesn’t want to hear it? If you don’t, please leave this page.

See I told you!! Didn’t I warn you? This is one sexy tracklist. Nothing can beat this tracklist, really astonishing!

The mix is tight, really good. Not dull at any moment, only a few tracks which weren’t my thing, but if there were 3, that’s no biggie. 3 bad tracks in a 41 track mix? That’s not bad, is it.

Fawks has given me a very good mix to listen to on the way to work. The journey was quite pleasant, and not as long as I thought it was going to be. I could listen to this mix again and again, and I will. It has nearly reached the end of the mix, so it’s time again to start it, and go mental.

Favourite track? Oh, I can’t choose.

A very interesting mix by an unknown artist (to me). Liking the vibes, liking the diversity, liking it a lot. Quite the summery mix too, if I’m honest. Chill back, relax, and enjoy this mix, wherever you are. If you are looking for a very, very dope mix, look no further.

Thank you Fawks!

I’ve seen the name Yellow Claw passing by on several websites before, heard of them before, but never had the opportunity to see them live of hear a set by them. Only yesterday I found their Soundcloud page, and decided to have a look, to find a mix/liveset with a tracklist, and after browsing for a minute, I found their set from EDC Las Vegas 2014, with a tracklist and it’s also a free download! Many have mentioned that they are extremely hot and that they fill many dancefloors all over the world. Again, never listened to any of their sets before (only know their track ‘Thunder’, and that is all), so this is kinda like my first introduction to the wonderful world of Yellow Claw.

Trap is extremely populair all over the world, and so is Yellow Claw. This Dutch trio started back in 2010, and now in 2016 they are one of the hottest acts money can buy (or book). The set you are about to listen to was recorded at EDC Las Vegas back in 2014, and they blew the roof off. Never seen or heard a liveset by Yellow Claw, I should be prepared for an hour of insane-ness (if that’s actually a word).

The tracklist was provided to us by Yellow Claw, a lot of own productions in it. You should check it out, if you haven’t already. 387k+ listens already, so I reckon you’ve pressed play at least once.

A proper tracklist, isn’t it? A lot of their own productions/remixes, and it does sound all well. This will turn this dreadful Sunday into a nice and sunny and relaxing Sunday.

This is my first introduction into the world of Yellow Claw, and I have to say that they keep the crowd entertained from the beginning to the end. From Trap to Hardstyle, they’ve added a lot of music into this hour long set. The crowd looses it completely, as you can hear them in the background screaming as loud as they can. The music is good, liking it a lot, not every track is a good one, but still it keeps me moving.

The best track in this set? I think it’s ‘The Mighty Claw’. A lot of Oldskool rave sounds in one track, being updated to entertain the new and young generation.

I like this set a lot, but there are a few minor issues. The MC keeps on chatting, maybe a bit too much. And the use of the horn button gets a bit annoying after 2 seconds, and if you haven’t listened to this set at all, be prepared to hear that horn all the way through the set.

All in all, a nice introduction. I will go on a hunt to find more sets/mixes by Yellow Claw.

Can’t believe this has taken place 13 years ago! Time does fly by when you are having fun. These were the golden years of Hardcore and Thunderdome, when they still organised events every year. As we all know they stopped the main event a couple of years ago, smaller events still happen, but not those massive events, which is a pity. One artist who has played at many events is Promo, a legendary artist. He uploaded his set from Thunderdome 2003, which is one you need to listen to, to fully understand his strength as a DJ and as a producer. He is known to many as the most underrated but most talented producer and DJ of the whole scene, someone who’s passionate about Hardcore.

Normally I talk about the event, but not today. What I can talk about is the fact that Promo is keeping the Wizard and Thunderdome alive. His Soundcloud page is a true heaven for Gabbers from all over the world, and if you paid attention, you all witnessed this one-off event, to celebrate the Wizard’s Birthday. Also, if you are interested, there’s a Promo package you can purchase soon from the Thunderdome website. If you think of Promo, you immediately think of Thunderdome. That’s why they asked him to play back in 2003 at their event, and also in 2016, keeping the brand alive and kicking.

Promo’s sets are always highly entertaining. And when they come with a tracklist, it increases the awesomeness!

01. Promo & X-ess – Vicious Circle

03. Promo – Counter Attack

Sweet Jesus, that’s a lot of DJ Promo in this tracklist! This must have been a Promo showcase! Sweet Lord, there’s a lot of his own productions in this mix. I must have died and entered heaven!

So many great anthems, rough and raw. The tracklist isn’t really accurate, if I’m honest, but it still contains the tracks Promo used. And I seriously want to know the 8th track, because that’s the dopest of the lot! And let’s not forget the track ‘Brother Of Conflict’! What a seriously insane track. Loved it the first time heard it (I think it did appear on the refurbished Thunderdome compilation).

There are so many beautifully composed tracks in this hour liveset, if you were there, you must had a wicked time. According to people who went, the music was a bit too soft, and not many liked the other DJ sets, but Promo’s set stood out from the rest. And damn right it did, because the set is just picture perfect!

I am proud to call myself a Gabber, and proud to be a Promo fan. Loving everything this man makes. He is truly the King of Hardcore, without a shadow of a doubt. This liveset might contains some really small mixing errors, but wouldn’t you make tiny mistakes when you’ve got thousands of ravers in front of you, adoring you?

Promo is a boss.

What’s the name of the 8th track? Someone please let me know!

Thunderdome might not really excist anymore, it’s still a huge part of our culture. The Gabber/Hardcore scene is only alive due to the impact Thunderdome had back in the 90s. Another thing which had a huge impact were the shoes, worn by many ravers, caked in mud at outdoor events, after purchase white for a day.. I’m talking about Nike Air Maxs.The shoe that symbolised the Gabber scene. It was the most comfortable shoe to wear when you went to a rave, and it actually looked good on you. Still to this day Air Maxs are sold in huge number, because it’s probably the sexiest and most comfortable shoe in the whole world. Now I was unaware that there’s such a thing as ‘Air Max Day’, but a couple of months ago it happened, and to celebrate this joyous occassion Amada made a mix you will all appreciate.

The mix is filled with awesome tracks, new and oldskool tracks remixed. The perfect mix to wear your Nikes to, and start raving to. I have to say that the shoes in the picture above are absolutely stunning! If these bad boys would be in my collection, I would never wear them. They are just too damn perfect. Always keep an extra pair of Nikes, and after you’ve put them on, rave away. Amada has selected a lot of amazing tracks, and the end result is an astonishing mix. To celebrate this day the mix we were presented with can only be described as awesome!

Tracklist? Are you ready for it? It’s beautiful! Where are my Nikes?

tracklist

01. The Opposites feat Sef – Me Nikes
02. Yellow Claw & The Opposites – Thunder (Evil Activities & E-Life Remix) 
03. Korsakoff – Tamara
04. DJ Paul Elstak – Still Luv U More (The Viper Remix) 
05. Unexist & OGM909 – Guns Blazing
06. Marshall Masters – Don’t Touch That Stereo (Maniac’s Hard Edit) 
07. AniMe – Terrordome #TiH
08. The Viper & Neophyte – First Aid
09. The Viper & Re-Style feat Diesel – Night & Day
10. Korsakoff – Somnia
11. The Viper & Panic – Lean On Bootleg
12. Nosferatu – Sanctity Of Space
13. Bodyshock – Communicate
14. Evil Activities – Go Fuck Yourself
15. Neophyte Records All Stars – Adrenaline
16. Skrillex feat Ragga Twins – Ragga Bomb (Art Of Fighters Bootleg) (DJ Mad Dog Re-Edit) 
17. Drokz – Brand New Kickz
18. Noize Suppressor & Drokz – Fingers In The Air

This is beautiful, isn’t it? A couple of older tracks, and a whole lot of new music. The music is excellent, Hardcore the way it should be. The first two tracks had a weird taste after hearing this mix for the first time, but after the second time I started to appreciate the beginning of this mix.

This must be the ultimate mix to celebrate Air Max day. Who doesn’t like to wear these bad boys? And who doesn’t like Hardcore/Gabber?

Amada has made a very tight mix, as tight as my Air Maxs (well, I really wanted a specific one, and they only had a size smaller than I normally wear, so I bought them anyway). I’ve got no comments regarding this mix, this is very dope. True to the core. The tracks are all awesome, and it has made my day. Totally forgot that it was a thing, this Air Max day, but I’ll make sure I won’t forget it next year.

Sadly no download, but we can still appreciate it. 12.7k+ listeners already have. I’ve played this mix at least a hundred times, and it has brought a smile on my face. Thank you Amada and Thunderdome for this mix! More like this stuff please.

Isn’t every Saturday international Nike Air Max day? Seeing as every week millions of ravers wear their most beloved item and rave the night away?
