I am a fan of Acid House music, and I keep on searching for mixes every day, to please myself. It’s one of those styles which is extremely underrated for its strength and diversity, and what it has done for the present day music scene. And I stumbled across a mix the other day, and it’s actually not a studio mix, but a liveset, made by Chris Moss Acid. Never heard or seen this name before, but judging by the picture attached to the mix he uses oldskool machinery/equipment, which makes it worth even more, listening to this mix. If an artist actually uses the Oldskool stuff, they should get more credit.

As I said, the name doesn’t ring a bell. But I’m not a walking Wikipedia, am I? If I knew every name on the planet, I would be on several TV programmes, boasting my skills. But I don’t have any skills. Anyhow, after pressing play I fell in love with the music he plays throughout his set, which was recorded back in 2014 at Dalston, London, at a club called Bar512. Another thing I never heard of before. I asked for a tracklist, because these tracks are not known to me, and he uploaded one, which turns out to be filled with his own productions! More credits for Chris Moss Acid. Anyone keeping the Acid House scene alive should be embraced with both hands!

Let’s see the tracklist!

tracklist

01. Chris Moss Acid – Acid Box
02. Chris Moss Acid – 247 House
03. Chris Moss Acid – Acid209
04. Chris Moss Acid – Slam The Box
05. Chris Moss Acid – GoAt Acid
06. Chris Moss Acid – Jak The House (It’s Time To) 
07. Chris Moss Acid – La Nuit Acid
08. Chris Moss Acid – The Acid That Ate Bournemouth
09. Chris Moss Acid – Agent-10-4
10. Current Value – Amen (Andrew’s Amen Mix) 
11. AFX – Gabba

This set is impressive! Only the last 2 tracks are made by someone else, and not Chris Moss Acid himself. But before we reach the last 2, you get 9 tracks during which you can hear how Chris Moss Acid creates epic anthems, and keeps the Acid House scene alive and kicking with his own productions.

Seriously impressed with his skills as a producer and also as a DJ, and people seemed to like it a lot during the evening. As he states underneath the mix people were texting him throughout the set, saying how epic a specific sound/bassline sounded. That’s crowd interaction for you lol.

During the whole mix you hear Acid coming through your speakers, and it’s lovely. The last 2 tracks are completely different, one is DnB and the last one is basically Terror. Even though it normally doesn’t suit a set like this kind, it works. The crowd needs to get rid of the last bit of energy they had after an amazing set like this one!

I’m liking this a lot. Really a lot. There might be some cross-fading errors, but can you blame him, he’s doing it live! Besides that it’s really an entertaining set. Credits to Chris Moss Acid for a wicked set! Loving it a lot, especially on a sunny day as today! Bring back the Acid!!!!

There are always new names in the music industry we’ve never heard of, and blogs like mine or others are always a good step forward to increase publicity, but when your name is Noisecontrollers, you certainly won’t need a website like mine, when the biggest stages are there for grabs. Noisecontrollers’ has established himself over the years, and the result is playing at the dopest events all over the world. But playing in your home country always feels much more special, and when the event is Decibel, what can go wrong? It must be a DJ’s kind of heaven?

Decibel is one of the leading events, and last year they only had the finest artists playing all over the event, and the mainstage looked extremely tasty: Atmozfears, Brennan Heart & Wildstylez, Da Tweekaz, Frequencerz, Partyraiser, Radical Redemption… I could go on, but you get the gist. You know what I was saying: this party was epic, and by accident I found Noisecontrollers’ liveset on Soundcloud. If you haven’t heard it already, you should be ashamed. 13k+ people already have, so why are you behind? Come on, join the Noisecontrollers train to madness!

The tracklist was added by someone, thank you for that. I can finally put names to the tunes I heard throughout the set.

tracklist

20. Alpha2 & Noisecontrollers – Craving For The Beat (Official Decibel Anthem 2013) 

Sweet Lord, if there’s another liveset out there better than this one, please mention it to me, because I reckon you are wrong, oh so wrong. This set is jam packed with awesome Summer tunes. Tunes that makes you want to rip off your office attire, and run towards the beach, dancing until the sun goes down.

Noisecontrollers has selected a few slamming anthems, such as ‘See The Light’, ‘Can’t Go Home’, ‘Sparks’, ‘Rocked Up’, ‘Wild Ones’, ‘Down Down’, but the one that did the most to me, was ‘Let Me See Ya’. I can’t describe it with words, you need to listen to it, and it will embrace you, and makes you want to dance, dance until the world ends. Seriously, this is an anthem, but don’t underestimate ‘Down, Down’. You can’t listen to it without singing out loud. And scare everyone around you, because you can’t sing.

This set has got some seriously insane dancefloor smashers, but some are just a bit meh. Adele is a nice girl, but to hear ‘Hello’, even at a big rave, nah, not my thing. But that’s just me.

I have listened to this at least 4415 times. Yes, it’s because of me that the plays are extremely high, but can you blame me? You simply can’t. Listen to this yourself, and you will know why this man doesn’t need an introduction. A superstar! Big set, dangerous for you.

Warning! Once the mix has finished, you press play again and again. Be careful!

You know you’ve been in the wrong country if you keep seeing and hearing livesets, and wonder why you left this glorious land in the first place. The Netherlands, a safe haven for ravers, has got to be the place to experience the best parties. I’ve been to parties all over the continent and the UK, and it’s safe to say that the Netherlands have the best parties. One of them being Hard Bass. If you like your music to be rough and tough, this event is the place to be. But to be fair, many events have an area for those who like things rough. But Hard Bass, its name already has a reputation for awesomeness, if that’s actually a word. And one of its liveset from this year’s event can be found on Soundcloud!

It’s the set that many people were waiting for. Team Red, E-Force, Warface and Rebelion. In the intro it also says Minus Militia, but nowhere on Soundcloud are they mentioned? Anyhow, the set is up for grabs, not downloadable, but do we care? As long as we’ve got 4G network and the Soundcloud app, we can listen to it anywhere we like. And that’s exactly what I did when I discovered this mix. It was shit, because I was on the overground and the tunnels kept interfering the mix, but on long stretches without tunnels the music kept on blasting through my headset. I reckon I had the volume too damn loud, people kept on looking at me. But do I care?

87.7k+ listens already. People must seem to like Rawstyle? Not an underground sound anymore, is it?

tracklist

01. Warface – FTP (E-Force Remix) 
02. Psyko Punk – Left With The Wrong (Warface Remix) 
03. Rebelion – Echoes
04. E-Force – Seven
05. Warface – Mash-Up 6.0
06. Rebelion – Uprising
07. E-Force – Stresstest
08. Rebelion – Back To The Future
09. E-Force & Luna – Kill The Noise
10. Skrillex & Rick Ross – Purple Lamborghini (Rebelion Bootleg)

12. Warface & D-Sturb – Pull The Killswitch
13. Rebelion – Keep It Fuckin’ Poppin’ (Live Edit)

20. E-Force – Deathtrap
21. Warface – Execute
22. Malice & Rebelion – Confronting Violence
23. E-Force & Luna – Are You With Me
24. Rebelion – Domination
25. E-Force – One Of A Million
26. Warface – Doomslayer
27. Rebelion – Salvation
28. E-Force & Tha Playah – Distorted Noises
29. Deadly Guns – Stick To My Guns

Someone was so kind to upload the tracklist onto Soundcloud, so we exactly know what we are listening to. But most of you are fans of E-Force, Rebelion and Warface, so you must know their full back catalogue?

It turns out that whoever recorded this mix and uploaded it took some amazing slammers out, probably due to copyright issues. So if you were there and you are wondering why you are missing tracks, there’s a reason for it.

Anyhow, back to the set. It’s f**king rough. Amazing. Tough. And I’m loving it. Not my neighbours, but who cares. I couldn’t care any less. They can move house, I am staying here. This set literally destroyed my speakers, and there’s another reason why you should embrace this mix: you can hear the crowd in the background completely loosing it! Screaming out their lungs.

Hard Bass 2017 must have been amazing, if this was the level of music they were delivering. E-Force, Warface and Rebelion made sure the crowd went mad, and you can hear that throughout the set. A wonderful set. Rawstyle at its finest. And I’m digging it.

Press play, but I reckon you already did that. Why read this review, there’s no point in waiting. 87.7k already did, and you are the next one to embrace this awesome and flawless set!

In 2014 a massive event took place (which takes place every year to be honest), and the name of the event is Q-Base. You must have heard from it, and if you haven’t, you are simply not into anything Hard when it comes to music. As I’m on a quest lately to find some nice older sets, I think I found the perfect one, and the focus during this mix is Millennium Hardcore, and that’s exactly the kind of Hardcore I like. The set was recorded at Q-Base, and the DJ in question is Predator.

He wasn’t the only one at Q-Base, a whole list of artists played there, but let’s focus at just one area: the Ghosttown area. They had Bass-D, Catscan, Dr. Rude, Leviathan, The Masochist, and more. A decent line-up. If that didn’t get you excited, nothing will. The hour that Predator played was nicely recorded, and we can listen to it now via Soundcloud. And I advise you to have a listen, because it’s an epic set, with thriller anthems! Maybe forgotten, but never old. Once these tunes are played, the crowd goes ape, including yours truly. This is the best era when it comes to Hardcore, the quality was superb!

tracklist

01. DJ Lancinhouse meets The Stunned Guys – Atmosfera
02. G-Town Madness & The Viper – Buck ‘Em Down (For Those Who Missed It)
03. Art Of Fighters vs Nico & Tetta – Revenge
04. The Viper & Endymion – How Long
05. Art Of Fighters – Earthquake
06. Endymion – Payback
07. Dione – Pain Till I Die
08. Art Of Fighters – Do Or Die
09. Outblast – Master’s Symphony (Evil Activities R3F!K5) 
10. Wasting Program vs Dune – Bring The Hardcore Vibes Back (The Viper Mashup Mix) 
11. Nosferatu & Endymion – Drunk With A Gun
12. Tommyknocker feat MC Justice – Nocturnal Rituals
13. Tha Playah & Nexes – The One
14. Tommyknocker vs Sunbeam – Twisted World (The Viper’s Mashup Mix) 
15. Tha Playah – Fuck The Titties (The Viper & Tommyknocker Remix) 
16. Tommyknocker – Domination
17. DJ Mad Dog – Welcome Down
18. Euromasters – Alles Naar De Klote (Neophyte & Evil Activities Remix) 
19. Diss Reaction – Jiieehaaaaa (Angerfist Remix) 

Wow! These are truly amazing tracks! How can we compete with tunes like these? You simply can’t. I think many people and youngsters underestimate the tunes, how powerful they were. Millennium Hardcore as a title is an understatement, it’s more than just a period, it’s what made Hardcore even better than it was before.

DJ Predator’s set is brilliant, loving the vibes, loving the selection of tunes. They are rough, tough, and yet beautiful. They keep me going. The beats, basses and melodies were more on point, they made the tunes so good, they have become timeless anthems.

Which tune is the best in this set? Too many, I simply can’t choose. I like ‘Drunk With A Gun’, ‘Payback’,’Domination’, ‘Welcome Down’, ‘How Long’… basically the whole list.

If you were looking for a good liveset, focussed on Millennium Hardcore, this set is what you want, and definately need. Maybe tiny cross fading errors, but that’s okay, you can still get the gist!

If this doesn’t improve your Sunday, and you don’t like this at all, you ain’t Hardcore!
