Ah, finally, I found a UK Hardcore mix1 It’s been a while since I last reviewed a UK Hardcore mix, but I’m back, and the first mix is a banger by DJC and MC Jack. These names do not need any introduction, you all know these names. If you want me to explain who they are to you, you ain’t Hardcore. Anyway, let’s focus on the mix, shall we?
DJC and MC Jack joined forces for this specific mix, which is dedicated to those slammers, bangers and anthems money can buy. Some old and some new, and some quirky. Expect a weird mix, in all fairness, because you get 37 tracks in 49 minutes. That has to be some madness coming through your speaker, eh?
MC Jack is the one behind the mic (hence the first bit of his artist name, eh) and DJC is behind the decks, and he fires his tracks toward you. And yes, there are quite a few slammers, bangers and anthems in here. Throughout the mix MC Jack keeps the entertainment level high: his voice is quite appealing, soothing for the ears. He doesn’t sound like a hoover on XTC, like some MCs do.
Let me show you the tracklist. It’s gorgeous. And quirky. Ray Charles in a UK Hardcore mix??

See, I told you this tracklist/mix is jam packed with a lot of records. That’s always the unfair bit about megamixes: once you get into a specific track, it already goes to the next track. It is continuous fun, that’s for sure. But still, Ray Charles in a UK Hardcore mix? I thought I heard everything so far!
MC Jack does his thing well alongside DJC, and it’s a blinding set. This has made my Sunday morning much more pleasant. And also the records DJC has selected. Some are a bit meh, but that’s just my personal view, but look at the best records of this mix: ‘Soundrush’, ‘Touch Me’, ‘Machine Gun’, ‘Close Your Eyes’, ‘Crazy’and more. It’s good that DJC has selected records by well known names, and including a few upcoming acts. This is a nice blend.
It’s Sunday, time to relax. Why not press play on this mix, and let the beats, basses and melodies guide you? Or as DJC and MC Jack would put it: let the slammers, bangers and anthems get you through this long weekend?
Best record? Come on, that’s a simple one: ‘Who’s Got Your Love’. Stonebank is a killer producer. And this is one hell of an anthem. Not a dancefloor smasher, a dancefloor destroyer!
