Spamming your stuff can work, or not. It depends on how it’s done, and what you are actually promoting. I’m not interested in one night stands, brand new watches, more followers, but when you are talking music to me and you are talking about my favourite kind of Hardcore music, you’ve got my attention. That’s exactly what Casketkrusher did: a message on Soundcloud, and voila, a review. It wasn’t that easy to be fair, because I first went onto another page, filled with his own EPs, and after that I returned to his Soundcloud page, and I found this beautiful liveset, a set from ‘Ouwe Stijl Is Botergeil’, which took place a month ago. And it had a tracklist, that’s what mattered to me.
But this liveset has a twist, an unexpected twist. Normally I would sit down, listen to it, nod my head up and down and reminisce to the good ol’ days, and love the records the DJ has selected (because I knew them all already, seeing as I’m a raver from day 1), but this set is filled with tracks made by Casketkrusher, and even though they might sound old, they are quite new! He’s one of those DJs who keeps the Oldskool sound alive, and with that in mind, let’s go to the tracklist. It might be all unknowns to you, but the music will intoxicate you from the first beat hitting your eardrum.
01. Rottencore – Ouwe Stijl Is Botergeil (The Casketkrusher Remix)
02. Casketkrusher – My Creation (The Notorious Mix)

15. Casketkrusher & The Soul Seeker – The Ripper
I have to say that this mix has astonished me! Seriously impressed by Casketkrusher and his dedication of keeping the Oldskool sound alive! His perspective is awesome, and I’m digging it a lot. This takes me back to the golden days of Hardcore/Happy Hardcore, and it fits in beautifully. Not trying to update the sound from then, but reliving the past. Christ, this has made me moist in my underpants!
Many DJs and producers have moved on, making different music, and not many still have the skills of making music the way it was made back in the 90s, or make it sound like the 90s, but Casketkrusher has got it. It’s a gift he should cherrish, because it’s rare to find such a wonderful set. This has blown my mind into a million pieces.
In all fairness, if these tunes were released in the 90s I would have fallen in love with them and would have played the tapes again and again until the tape would be torn into a billion pieces, or got stuck in ‘my first Sony’ cassette player. This is how the music sounded back in the 90s, and I’m impressed.
Casketkrusher, you’ve gained a fan. A huge fan. There might be a few mixing errors, but the tunes on their own have blown me away. This made my day exquisite, beautiful, and all in all better. Impressed? Yes. I can say in all honesty that no mix this year has blown me away as much as this one.
Best track? ALL OF THEM. And that’s not an understatement, it’s stating out the obvious! Listen to it and relive the past in the present day. I don’t like to use the next swear word, but this is fucking awesome!!!!
