It’s Saturday, and what’s the most logical thing to do? Correct, chill out and listen to your favourite style. Mine is obviously Hardcore, and I woke up especially for this mix (not really, couldn’t sleep really). Ran to my computer, turned it on, and been listening to it since. Blasting out the Hardcore at 8 o’clock on a Saturday morning. How lovely can life be? A nice cup of coffee and breakfast, and my life’s superb.
This liveset was recorded last year at ‘Welcome To The Jungle’, and the DJ in question is DJ Cruze, accompanied by MC Frikshon behind the microphone. It’s a short set, only 50 minutes long, but it contains a lot of amazing tracks by well established names. It’s mainly focussed on the happy side of Hardcore, from Dutch to UK Happy Hardcore can be found in this mix. And I think the tracklist will please you as much as it did me.

02. Hopscotch – Midnight Express (Steamtrain)
03. Silk Cuts 6 – Soul Of An Angel
04. Force & Styles – All Over

A very good looking tracklist, and it’s funny to see that the first and last track and the one exactly in the middle is proper Dutch, and the others are British. It’s like he planned that, and it worked.
The tracks are good. They brought back some good memories from the 90s, dancing the night away. Not every track is liked by yours truly, don’t like ‘Midnight Express’, but that’s just me. It’s a personal thing.
MC Frikshon does his best to hype up the crowd, and he does it well (as usual). His voice can be clearly heard during this recording, sometimes you hear him better than the music. The quality of the recording isn’t really great sadly, you can still feel the vibe, but it lacks the oomph, if you know what I mean.
Great tracks, great MC, shite recording lol. Could be an issue on my side, or maybe it is indeed not good. But don’t let that fool you: go and listen to this liveset, and let Cruze take you on a cruise through time (see what I did there?)
