One of the events I really wanted to go to, was Thunderdome ’96. As a young lad Thunderdome dominated my youth, and the 1996 edition turned out to be one of the most talked about Thunderdomes ever. The response it had was tremendous, and even to this day it’s a well remembered night. On Partyflock 74% of the partygoers rated it as aweseom/excellent, and not one bad review. A night to remember, and for only ƒ 50,- you would experience the night of your life, with an incredible line-up: 50% of the Dream Team, Bass-D & King Matthew, Buzz Fuzz, Dana, Dano, Darkraver, Delirium, E-Rick, Gizmo, Hardcor, Neophyte, The Prophet, Uzi, Waxweazle, Weirdo, and 3 Steps Ahead. You cannot deny the feeling you just received after seeing that line-up. And that night had been captured on a CD, and released also in 1996. Read More
Last year M-Project released the album ‘Weaponized Soul’, and it was an immediate success. On this album he worked alongside names such as Scott Brown, Synthwulf, Mitomoro, Relect and many more, but we all know that M-Project can’t sit still: he’s always busy. And you might have seen on Facebook or Twitter the announcement of his new album, which is called ‘Weaponized Soul 1.5’. This follow up album contains reworks and remixes, and the records are big. 11 tracks for only ¥ 1500. Let me see how much that is in pounds…. 9.95 pounds. And like the previous album you can get it via Guhroovy’s Bandcamp page. Read More
When you get a CD in your physical inbox, it always makes you smile. Last week I received two, one was the exclusive album by GPF (Greazy Puzzy Fuckerz), and the other was by MC Thunda’s, his last ‘Lyrical Convict’ instalment. It came with a nice flyer, but I didn’t know what was going to happen. Many people, are receiving the album, started sharing the album in selfies. The flyer played a huge part of it. But what wondered me, was if this was going to be the last thing we will ever hear from MC Thunda? And the answer is ‘no’. Hell no. Read More
A new EP has been released, and if you are into Hardcore, it’s going to make this Easter weekend even better! Banging Hardcore from the legendary Chosen Few Recordz, and for their 31st EP they had DareDevil releasing three big anthems, which are called ‘Sleep’, ‘Come Find Me’, and ‘Put The Money’. All dark and dodgy titles, which are making me scared to go to sleep tonight. There might be a mythical creature coming towards me in my sleep, asking for the money, which I clearly don’t have…. scary EP this is. Read More
2017 was the year we all saw a new phenomena come to life: the Greazy Puzzy Fuckerz became an act, and their mission was to fuck us up. For those who are unaware who they are, you will only find out if you buy this magestic album. Anway, this new phenomena took over the world by storm. Even though we were not ready for their greazy mission, we have all embraced them, and made their music our own. We welcomed them, and now they are slowely taking over the world, playing at shitloads of events. But talking about them, let me point out something you might have missed: the GPF album! You might not be a romantic person, we understand, and when you saw the ad on Facebook, you might have thought it was yet another stupid Valentines day present no-one wanted to get. You are wrong!

I don’t do many EP reviews sadly, but when you are made aware of a new EP on the mighty Stamina Records, who can resist the urge to write a blog about it? The latest release on this wonderful label is Digital Commandos’ EP, which contains two records called ‘Serious Shit’ and ‘Future World’. Now, the name Digital Commandos, I’ve seen it before, but I’m not aware who’s behind it, or how long they have been making music for. Thanks for Soundcloud and Facebook to provide me with the information, eh?
According to Soundcloud (and Facebook) they’ve started back in 2004, and it was a college project. Their first release was on the legendary NU Energy label, and since then they have been pushing their love for music forward with several releases, such as ‘No Fate’, ‘Severe Trauma’, ‘Rock The Diskotek’, and now for their latest release Stamina Records was the label to push their talent forward. So what can you expect if you get this EP? Well, some amazing Freeform tunes, that’s for sure.
The tracklist is short. It only contains two records. But worth checking it out!
01. Digital Commandos – Serious Shit
02. Digital Commandos – Future World
First of all, the picture is absolutely amazing! I love the colours, and Stamina Records always have the coolest pictures. Credits for that. But it’s not the picture that makes a record great, it’s the actual music.
Don’t know where the ‘Serious Shit’ vocal comes from. But it suits the record beautifully. This record contains the ‘old’ sound from a few years ago, and also a well known drop. The build up is tremendous, and you can not wait for the beats to kick in hard, and when they do kick in, it’s a feast for your ears. It stays true to the Freeform sound which to me is still the greatest sound ever created. A bit of oldschool Tech Trance bits and bobs being crammed into the record makes it worth to spend your pennies on.
Future World. I heard this record before, and I think it was the opening record from A.B’s ‘Winterbash mix’. And yes, after checking Soundcloud, it was. This track has got a proper intro, a proper build up, and that’s what I like. And the rest of the record remains awesome.
These two records do fit the Stamina Records ethos nicely. No cheaply made records, but well build records. A lot of thoughts have gone into this EP, and for me it’s worth your pennies. And you can get these two amazing records now from Stamina’s own webstore! Why wait? This is some serious shit! (see what I did there?)
