I’ve never heard of Doughboy, and don’t have a clue who he is. Maybe he’s Super Mario’s little nephew? Whoever he is, he’s a massive name from Seattle. He’s worked with labels such as KFA, Contagious Records, Justice Hardcore, Venom Drive and more. Maybe I have seen his name before, but it never stuck on me. Don’t know why, but today I saw a mix on Soundcloud, made by the doughy man, which was recorded at an event called ‘Bubble Bobble 9′. Again, I know nothing about the DJ, or even the event, but it’s time for me to indulge myself into his wonderful world.

This set contains several styles, but it’s called Trapcore. A wide genre, in which anything can happen. And not only do you find tracks by well known names such as Spyro, Alex Prospect, Zero Hero, MOB & Enemy, but also a few of his own productions. So this introduction is quite a good one, you get to hear how he mixes and what he produces. And truth be told, if you get to work with one of the biggest superstars in the UK Hardcore scene Alex Prospect, you must have some talent.

The tracklist was kindly added, so let’s see what called ‘Trapcore’ nowadays…

tracklist

02. Zero Hero – Back Again

24. Spyro – Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit
25. Flux Pavilion feat Cammie Robinson – Pull The Trigger
26. Outforce & Hartshorn feat MC Riddle – Keep It Mello (Doughboy Remix) 

This set is really entertaining. I’ve not heard many Trapcore mixes before, but it’s entertaining. It contains a bit from both worlds, the UK Hardcore scene and the growing EDM scene. And TCD is liking it a lot!

I must say that Doughboy’s set is really good, even though I have never heard or seen the name before. Or heard of the event. But that’s not anything bad to be brutally honest. It’s all about the music, and the music is bouncy. Quite catchy. And I think that Doughboy is or a fan of Spyro or Alex Prospect, you find a lot of their tracks in his liveset.

If I had any more information regarding the event I would have shared it with you all. Instead of, let me just say to you to press play and enjoy this Trapcore set.

I can’t find anything wrong with this set. The tracks are quite good! The best track? ‘Burn Up’.

Time to get excited, let’s see if I can find more Trapcore stuff. I need more, and I want more!!!!

I think Soundcloud knows what I want, when I want it. For example this weekend, I wanted to hear some Techno and Trance sets, and I got what I asked for. But this morning it was a bit ‘meh’ at work, not really busy, and I was a bit exhausted. So the first thing that emerged, was a Hardcore set. How about that? That kept me awake, and focussed at work. A bit of Panic throughout 8 hours of work, who doesn’t want to hear that? If you don’t, please leave this planet right now! And I do mean right now! Who doesn’t love Hardcore?

Panic is a name who doesn’t need an introduction. Hence the reason why he was asked to perform at this massive event at the Matrixx in Nijmegen (the Netherlands). He played alongside superstars such as Neophyte, The Viper, Tha Playah, Evil Activities, E-Life, Furyan, Endymion, Jeff, and the Neophyte Records All Stars. Now that’s a line-up that will make you dribble like Homer J. Simpson. And the tracklist will blow your mind away too. It’s a thing of beauty.

Want to see the tracklist? I’m not sure about a few tracks, someone made this tracklist, but some tracks do not sound like the original, so they could be remixes….

tracklist

01. Masters Of Ceremony – Bottoms Up
02. Tha Playah – Bling Bling (Nitrogrenetics Remix) 
03. Evil Activities vs Tha Playah – Imperial
04. Masters Of Ceremony – A Way Of Life
05. Bodylotion – How Much Can You Take (Catscan Remix) 
06. Scott Brown – Bass Be Louder
07. Evil Activities & Chaosphere – State Of Emergency
08. Tha Playah – Hit Em
09. Scott Brown – King Of The Beats
10. Neophyte vs Tha Playah & MC Alee – The Ultimate Project
11. Masters Of Ceremony – Under Control 09
12. Tha Playah vs DJ Mad Dog – Enter The Timemachine (DJ Mad Dog Remix) 
13. Evil Activities – What’s Inside Me (Tha Playah Refix) 
14. Evil Activities & DJ Panic – Never Fall Asleep
15. Bodylotion – Neighbourhood Crime (Tha Playah Remix) 
16. Evil Activities & DJ Panic feat MC Alee – Bigger Than Ever
17. Neophyte & The Viper – Got 2 Be Original
18. Evil Activities & Neophyte – To You Who Doubt Me (Tommyknocker Remix) 
19. Art Of Fighters – Artwork (Tha Playah Remix) 

Now that’s a tracklist and a half! What a serious tracklist, no fuzzing about, pure Hardcore from the first to the last second! Before you blink, you’ve got to agree that it looked like a set done by Evil Activities, doesn’t it? Or a set by The Playah? The amount of tracks by these two names is just tremendous. Maybe Panic is a fan of them?

Panic has picked serious records, no shite wannabee Hardcore records, but he’s part of Neophyte Records, they don’t release crappy music (truth be told). And being part of this collective is obviously something unique: you don’t become a member without having potential. And Panic has meant a lot for the Hardcore scene, and you can hear his enthusiasm throughout the set.

From time to time he does go a bit bonkers, in a funny way. As I said before he loves Hardcore, but his cross fading can be a bit off/dodgy from time to time. But that’s no big thing. All in all a wicked set, if you love Hardcore coming out of your speakers.

A wicked set. Can’t believe it’s 3 years old! It still sounds fresh. Another liveset that proves Hardcore is timeless. And so is Panic!

Best record? ‘Bottoms Up’. Just listen to it, and you will know why. The ultimate crowd pleaser.

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!

Last year’s Westfest was amazing! A killer line-up, and an exclusive performance from The Order. If you don’t know who they are, let me introduce them to you: MOB, MC Obie and MC Mayhem form The Order. Don’t know why they are called that, maybe they bring order into the UK Hardcore scene? Well, it can be a bit chaotic, so maybe they named themselves after what their mission is: balance within the scene, and also wicked and exclusive sets! It took a while for the liveset to contain the tracklist, but thankfully they’ve uploaded it, so now I can share it with you!

MC Obie and MC Mayhem entertain the crowd with their vocal skills, and MOB is behind the decks, playing out the finest tunes from himself and other names such as Klubfiller, Outforce, Callum Higby, Modulate and more. The tracklist is actually a beauty, but with The Order you need to judge the whole act, and not just the DJ and his records, because you get so much. You need to pay attention, and you can hear during this set that they are doing their best, and the crowd is liking their performance a lot!

Don’t know when they are performing next, but for now let’s listen to this set, and appreciate their unique-ness!

tracklist

01. Mission Control – The Order Anthem
02. MOB & Enemy – Speak English
03. MOB – Flirt (MOB x Tom Bexton Remix) 
04. Outforce & Hartshorn – Put Yo Hood Up
05. Alex Prospect x Spyro – Up To No Good
06. MOB & Enemy – Falling In Love (MOB Party Hard Edit) 
07. MOB & Klubfiller – Heart Of Glass
08. Callum Higby – Bassface
09. Chainsmokers – Don’t Let Me Down (MOB Boot Mix) 
10. Modulate & Obie – Believe
11. MOB & Strider feat Jenny J – Bring You Home
12. MOB feat Lou – Butterflies
13. MOB x Callum Higby – Creation
14. Mission Control Award // MOB & Enemy feat Nina – Iron Heart

The tracklist does look good, but as I said before, you have to listen to the whole package to judge it. And let me tell you, this will bring a smile on your face!

MOB, Mayhem and Obie. Three mighty names, and they bring balance. A nicely balanced mix. And they get the crowd hyped up to the max. Don’t know any other act like this one in the UK Hardcore scene, if I’m honest. The Order brings it to the masses, and everyone likes it! The music accompanied is also very good, maybe a bit too much MOB related, but do you mind? MOB is one of the finest producers out there, and he’s picked a few amazing records, such as ‘Falling In Love’, ‘Butterflies’, ‘Believe’, ‘Iron Heart’, but the one that made me dance/move the most has to be ‘Bassface’.

Two tracks I don’t like. That’s the only thing I can mention about the actual mix. And maybe the mic levels. It ain’t a 100%. But close. But that’s not The Order’s fault. You can still hear them, and understand what the MCs are saying, and making you do!

A good set. Wish I was there, witnessing history being written. As I said before I don’t have a clue when they are performing again, but they should. They bring the fire to the masses. The Order, you need to look out for that, trust me!
