It’s been nearly 2 years since I last heard a Mark Neenan mix! Can you believe it? I thought it was shorter than 2 years, but I looked it up, and I was amazed! Well, those 2 years have flown by, in all fairness. If you are a Techno lover like yours truly, you don’t need to worry: there’s a new mix you should listen to. It’s Mark Neenan’s Filthcast 0.3. I’ve missed the previous 2 episodes, but not to worry: I will haunt them down and download them too. I could write a review about 3 episodes, but seeing as it’s Sunday morning and I’m easily distrac…. hey, there’s a bird flying around my car!

Let’s focus on this mix, Mark Neenan’s latest mix. A nice Techno mix with 22 amazing tracks by artists I’ve never heard of before. I was looking for that, seeing as it’s quite miserable outside and foggy. You don’t want to listen to anything else besides Techno on a Sunday morning, and this mix has got exactly what you need. The mix is tight, as you would expect from Mark Neenan.

You should check the tracklist out!

20. Pablo Caballero – Then

See, this tracklist might be beautiful to you, but to me it’s like looking at a book with only Latin words in it: not having a clue. In this case I do not have a clue who the artists are at all, but one thing I do have to mention is the quirkiness of the titles! ‘1st Reason 4 Mindfuck’? ‘Red Wasn’t My Plan’? ‘As Faraday Built His Cage’? That’s a definate LOL.

Mark Neenan has made yet another amazing mix. Tight when it comes to the mixing, it’s been perfect from the first to the last second. A very mellow yet quite dark mix, the tunes he has selected are really mindblowing! They take you to another level, a level you have never felt before. And on this boring Sunday morning, as I said before, you don’t want to hear anything else besides Techno, and this is the right mix for you!

Erm, I always have to mention one little error. But I can’t find any. Sorry.

Download this mix and the previous two episodes too! They are still on Soundcloud, so grab them while you can. They might disappear and after they were taken off, you are regretting not downloading them! Get the Filthcast now!

Another day, another mix. This time it’s a mix made by DJ Terror a.k.a. Accuser. Yes, you must know his name, you’ve probably seen his name on my website (I’ve interviewed him a couple of months ago, worth checking out). But for now you should check out this mix, because it’s a beauty. If you weren’t born in the 80s or 90s and you have no idea what Breakbeat Hardcore/Rave/Happy Hardcore is, it’s definately time for you to figure out what it is, and why not let this mix be your guide to the wonderful world of beats, basses, melodies, and a lot of piano bits and bobs?!

This era meant the most to me. To me this era beats the present day when it comes to the quality of the music. Yes, music has progressed, but sometimes I wonder why this kind of music has stayed in the past and not moved along aswel? I think this bass-filled music should have moved too, but on the other hand it’s good that we’ve got something to look back at, and acknowledge that it had a tremendous impact in our little rave culture.

The tunes DJ Terror has selected are raw, and filled with the dirtiest basses you haven’t heard in a while. The tracklist is insane, trust me. If you are old (as I am) and you know the music, you will get an erection if you just glimpse at this tracklist.

tracklist

01. DJ Seduction – My Own
02. SMD – SMD#1
03. Just Another Artist & Matthew Quinn – Rhythm (Billy Daniel Bunter Remix) 
04. Devious D & MC Jay J – Time Of Our Lives
05. D-Force & J.James – Ruff
06. DJ Red Alert & Mike Slammer – I Don’t Need Your Love
07. SMD – SMD#2
08. DJ Invincible & N Zo – Funky Sensation
09. Ellis Dee – Desire
10. Slipmatt – Breaking Free
11. DJ Red Alert & Mike Slammer – In Effect
12. DJ Seduction – Drop The Bass
13. Different Vibe & M. Quinn – Can You Feel It
14. DJ Slam – Hold On
15. DJ Seduction – Sample Mania
16. Love Nation – Positive
17. Slipmatt – Hear Me
18. Ellis Dee – Don’t Stop Rocking
19. Billy Daniel Bunter, J. Wilkinson, JDS & M. Quinn – Let It Lift You

Beautiful. Got no other word to describe this tracklist. Well, maybe gorgeous, or outstanding. You get the gist. It’s an good looking tracklist, and in all fairness this is what I was after.

DJ Terror has made a seriously insane mix! I’ve downloaded this only a day ago, and I’ve already played it 40 times! The reason why? Well, it’s bass-focussed, and even with my bog standard Volvo s40 speakers this mix made my windows tremble. When I drove passed people walking down the street, they were looking at me, thinking that I must be completely insane to play this out loud! The bass levels were ridicilous, it made everything move! It was like experiencing earthquakes inside my car for about 50 minutes!

Best record? ‘Ruff’. End off.

Check this mix out right now!

It’s been a while since I last reviewed an album, and I think it’s about time you all hear about this latest album from the mighty Darkside Unleashed, and it only got released yesterday! The album is called ‘Sampler Three’, and if you dig Hardcore Techno, this is a must listen to album. Proper Hardcore, not for those who think that Hardcore is hard when it’s 140bpm. If you are into Hardcore which is slightly rougher and tougher than the most known records, why not check this album out/

This album is released by Darkside Unleashed, and unless you were offline for the last 20 years (well, that’s a bit excaggerated), you must know this label and already follow them on several social media pages. You might know the label, and I do to, but this album is fairly new to me. It contains records by new artists, artists I’ve never heard of before. Brand new perspectives on Hardcore, which is always a bonus. Yes, we’ve heard Angerfist and Promo and all the other well known names for quite a while now, I want to hear the new breed and their tunes, and this album is focussed on that.

The tracklist is quite sexy. If you don’t see it, you might to clean your lenses/glasses, and if that still doesn’t work, you might need to see a doctor urgently. This is sexy. New names, new music, new perspectives. Exciting times for Hardcore.

tracklist

01. Rob Da Rhythm – Hard & Fast
02. Vandal!sm & Ysiss – Down With The Underground
03. Unrest – Hypocrites
04. Digital Violence & Lady Bex – Suicide Squad
05. Hardbouncer – Untouchable
06. Cryogenic – Victimized (Repix Remix) 
07. Masters Of Noise vs Sonic & D-Vstor – Fuck The Police
08. Nuke & Lost Origin – Sucker Sucker
09. PsykoKnot – Roll Call
10. Dave Dope feat Spitnoise – We Crash The Party (Ravezone Anthem 2016) 
11. Sonic & D-Vstor – Vengeance
12. Unproven – We Will Survive
13. Biorekk – F##kin C’mon!
14. Para Italia – Go Fuck Yourself
15. Chrono & De Man Int Zwart – Power
16. Chaotic Hostility – Kill The Devil
17. Angernoizer – Bomb Da Drop

See! Gorgeous, isn’t it? And it’s available now! And there’s another added bonus (if you are a DJ): these are DJ friendly records. No mix, just pure solid and separate records. Full length, and high quality tunes. It’s time for you to indulge yourself into the world of the unknown, and listen to what they have to offer. And what they had to offer was amazing!

I’ve listened to this album already a thousand times, and it hasn’t disappointed me. It made the car journey to and from work quite pleasant. Those who drove past me must have thought I was a complete loon, because I was head butting the air around me constantly, and fist pumping in a row. But who cares?

The tunes were good! My favourite track was ‘We Crash The Party’. Oh, and also ‘Power’, and ‘Bomb Da Drop’. They made the speakers in my car go ape. A pleasant feeling you must experience for yourself. It ain’t hard, just go to Hardtunes.com, search for this album and download it now.

There was a tiny thing, and I think I should mention it. This ain’t for the weakest, and it’s ain’t melodic, but when a track tries to become a bit melodic, it all of a sudden doesn’t. Example: track 9. I miss something great in this track. Other tracks also contain a bit too much, crammed into a few minutes. Some were missing bits, and some needed just a bit more.

A great album, containing a lot of amazing tunes. Worth a download, don’t you agree?

I reckon there are quite a few dedication mixes out there. tribute mixes, and it’s always nice for the artist/group to hear a mix showcasing their own talents, and also showcasing the fans’ dedication to him/her/them. It’s not like you see them every day, but once every so often you will find one on Soundcloud/Mixcloud, and most of these mixes fly by without being noticed. Not this one, this got a nice reply on Facebook by Meccano Twins! And if an artist notices your effort in making a nice tribute mix, the fan must have felt absolutely amazed and bewildered.

The tribute mix was made by Memento, and was a tribute mix for Meccano Twins. Meccano Twins do not need an introduction, being on top of the game for many years. After a quick look around I found out that they started back in 2003. Now that’s a shocker, I always thought they started earlier than that! But what year they started is irrelevant, it’s what they caused and created from that moment on, that’s the most important thing. And they came, they saw, and destroyed eardrums! If you look at this tracklist it will show you how good Meccano Twins are as producers. I am not a hundred percent sure if they are still a duo or a single artist, I’m not the gossip know-it-all. I don’t follow Hardcore that much to know everything lol.

The tracklist was kindly provided by Memento, and it’s a good looking one!

I told you that this tracklist looked amazing! On a boring Sunday morning this is the first thing you want to hear, blasting through your speakers. I’ve tried to unblock my right ear with this mix on full blast, sadly that didn’t work (blocked ear due to a holiday swim, grrr). So I’ve got to judge this mix with only my left ear being able to hear it at full blast.

Memento has made a wicked tribute mix, and one to be proud off. Don’t actually know who he/she is, but to make a mix this good and it being recognized by Meccano Twins itself is such an achievement! And already 2.5k+ plays is an achievement. The track selected are good, extremely well produced, but what can we say about the quality of the tunes? The Italians know exactly how to make excellent Hardcore Techno music, there’s no deny in that. Been a fan since the early days when the Italians emerged out of nowhere with their perspective on Hardcore, and Meccano Twins have been on my list of all time favourites too, be it from 2003 (I seriously thought it was earlier than that).

There are a few small glitches/mix errors, but the gist is good. The errors don’t ruin the mix at all. Worth a listen and a download. What are you waiting for? Check this mix out right now, and share the Meccano madness! Wake up your neighbourhood with a wicked mix!

I really enjoyed it, with one ear. Imagine me hearing it with both ears, it will be an eargasm!
