Next week there’s going to be an event happening in de Lilse Bergen, and the event is called ‘Bass Events Outdoor’. You must have seen on Facebook many things passing your timeline regarding this event, and truth be told it’s going to be a good event. The line-up is something so delicious, let me name just a few. Just a few. Ready? B-Front, Code Black, Coone, Mark With A K, Miss K8, Pat B, Radical Redemption, Ruthless, and of course the duo who’s mix I’m about to review: Sub Zero Project.

I don’t know a lot about Sub Zero Project, but what I do know if that a couple of weeks ago I saw a video on Youtube, for a song called ‘The Project’. The video was quirky, but the tune absolutely banging! And of course I’ve seen their tracks before in other mixes, but truth be told I don’t know a single thing. They look very happy in the picture above. And they’ve got something on their faces. Oh, and they make Raw Hardstyle music. That’s all there is to mention. But the music they make is really, really good!

Let me show you the tracklist. It’s a beauty!

tracklist TCD

01. Isaac – Burn (Sub Zero Project Remix) 
02. Rob Mayth – Feel My Love (Devin Wild & Sub Zero Project Bootleg) 
03. Audiotricz – Let There Be Light
04. Da Tweekaz & Sub Zero Project – DRKNSS
05. Brooklyn Bounce – Club Bizarre (Headhunterz & Noisecontrollers Remix/Sub Zero Project Edit) 
06. Sub Sonik & MC Villain – The One
07. Bro Safari – Follow (Sub Zero Project Remix) 
08. Devin Wild – Let’s Get Drunk
09. D-Sturb feat Emese – Legacy
10. Chain Reaction – The Record Breaking
11. Frontliner – Warphole

A short but exciting tracklist. A few of their own productions, and one timeless classic in there. Can you figure out which one that is? It ain’t hard to figure it out which record is one timeless classic.

It’s ‘Warphole’. Duh. That was a walk in the park.

Anyway, they’ve made this promo mix, to get everyone ready for next week. And within only a handful of days it’s been played over 2000 times. Well, that’s mainly my fault, I kept playing this over and over. It’s a very interesting mix. It’s got a few seriously insane records, like the remix of ‘Club Bizarre’, ‘Let There Be Light’, ‘The Record Breaking’, but the one record that made me bounce/rave the hardest is ‘Feel My Love’. Don’t know what the male voice is saying, but I don’t care (ring ding ding, kick that shit to the left?).

A nice promo mix, and if this doesn’t get everyone excited, nothing will. Worth checking out, this mix. I can’t find anything wrong with this mix. Even the remixed version of ‘Club Bizarre’ puts a smile on my face, and normally I’m not a fan of remakes of 90s classics, but this one worked well.

Go and see Sub Zero Project. Raise your hands way up in the air and let yourself go. You’ve got 7 days to get everything sorted. This is an event you don’t want to miss.

Before anyone starts mentioning the fact that I haven’t put the download details down, let me just say that it didn’t work for me. I’ve got internet issues, so I tried downloading, but it didn’t work. Network issues grrr. Anyway, you are getting excited now, knowing that you can download this mix by the legendary Cally.

21 days ago he uploaded a mix, showcasing his producing skills, and it’s packed with unreleased anthems and edits, which are being released throughout the year. And it was also for the launch of a radio show called ‘Hijacked’, presented by D GROVE. But what can we expect? Well, a short mix with 9 tracks, written/cowritten or remixed by Cally, and the beats, basses and melodies will come flying at you through your speakers.

Cally, does he really need an introduction? I don’t think so. If you want to know more, let your friend Google help you. Just typ in ‘Cally’ and you will find all the information you need: when he started DJing, where he has been, his PIN code, the size of his pants, everything. Google can be amazing (but the last two are probably not on there, I reckon?).

Let me show you the tracklist. And it’s a big one!

tracklist TCD

01. Cally & Steve Hill feat MC Shocker – RVRS BASS In The HDUK
02. Cally – Zenith
03. B.R.K. – Dance To The House (Cally Remix) 
04. Second Element – Give Me Your Love (Hatom Remix) (Cally Edit) 
05. Cally, Steve Hill & MKN – Music Is The Answer
06. Cally & Riot – Out Here Alone
07. Cally & Juice and Brain M vs MC Bunn feat MC Shocker – Bionic Grand Finale Anthem (Original Mix) 
08. Hardwell – Apollo (Noisecontrollers Remix) (Cally & Malfunction Edit) 
09. Da Tweekaz – Hewwego (Darren Styles Remix) (Cally Edit) 

A short but very intoxicating tracklist. This mix contains only 9 tracks, but they are all exciting. As he put it on Soundcloud, many are unreleased, or will be released soon. So exclusives are in this mix. Don’t know which ones will be released and which ones aren’t. That’s up to you to find out, eh?

The mix is focussed on the Hardstyle side of music, but the kind of style he makes, isn’t 100% Hardstyle. It’s got influences from other styles, mainly Hard House. Hard House, obviously the UK side of it. It’s a nice combination, a nice flow. But it’s a more gentle form of Hardstyle.

What Cally has given us, is a short mix, but a truly exciting mix. A mix that will go down well this weekend, if you put your speakers on maximum, and make sure that the neighbourhood hears it too. Your neighbours will thank you. I reckon this weekend is the perfect weekend to let the world know what kind of music you have embraced.

Best record in this mix? Well, there are two: ‘Music Is The Answer’, and ‘Out Here Alone’. Can’t beat these.

I might try later to get this mix downloaded from his website, but for me now it’s still not working. But until the moment I’ve got this mix in my possession, I will keep on playing it over and over again. Thanks Soundcloud and Cally, for making this mix available.

A big mix gets a big score:

I’ve seen many Thera mixes pass by on my timeline at Soundcloud, but I think I never reviewed any of his mixes. Or have I? Let me check my page, give me a second (>>insert elevator music here<<)… and the answer is no. Maybe on my previous website, which sadly got destroyed by trojan horses, but I must have. His mixes are always passing by on Soundcloud and they do have tracklists, so why haven’t I? The founder of Theracords, how could I not have reviewed anything yet? I am ashamed, I truly am.

Anyway, let’s focus on the mix he uploaded yesterday. His Soundcloud page is filled with many mixes, so if you want to hear more, just go on a quest and you’ll find a lot, and it will get you through this weekend. This man loves music a lot, especially the harder styles. Which led to him playing all over the world, playing at the biggest events such as Defqon.1, Hard Bass, The Qontinent, and many more. A name you should recognise in an instant.

He made a very interesting mix which tunes from 2010 until the present day. A few of his own productions/collaborations, and also a few of his own favourites. I did spot another mix on his page, which was dedicated to the tunes from 2000 until 2009, and as a follow up he made this mix. Why, you might ask? Well, it’s Thera week. Is it like a national holiday? Well, if you are a Harder style lover it is. A week filled with everything Thera related, that’s indeed like a holiday. A break from the standard stuff coming out of your radio.

He made this livemix, and it’s jam packed with awesome records. Check it out!

As someone said on Soundcloud, this mix is indeed insanely crazy (heerlijk gestoord). And I’ve got to agree with him, this mix is indeed insane, but tasty for my ears. I’m loving the vibes, the feeling is awesome. I listened to this whilst at work, and it got me through the day. Not saying work was boring, but this mix gave me an extra boost to get the job done quicker. Yes, the harder styles do have a positive effect on me.

DJ Thera’s selection is ace. A lot of his own productions, but could you blame him? It’s his mix, so it’s a normal thing to push your own stuff forward too. But not only does it show how good he is as a producer, but that he’s a busy bee too. Not only making records, making mixes, keeping his own label alive and kicking, playing all over the world, but also a ‘hit’ machine. I haven’t spotted a single bad record in this mix.

There are a few great records in here, but the one that blew my mind away was ‘Quietly’ by Wavolizer, remixed by Thera. A female voice, whispering… that’s just sexy. And then the bass and beats kick in, and it makes the record stand out. More whispering females please! I think we’ve gone passed the stage where we only put cowbells in, now the era of whispering females emerges.

I liked this mix a lot. Can’t pick a flaw. Why? There aren’t any. As the British would say: ‘get this down you’. Which normally means a drink, but in this case you could use this phrase to get this mix, put it on full blast, and let the beats, basses and melodies penetrate your skull/skin. And it won’t disappoint you. It will be a pleasant feeling.

Thera’s mix is dope. Seriously good! Hence the score I gave it:

Remember I reviewed a mix for Defqon.1 a couple of weeks ago? I think it was a camping mix, a mix you could download and play whilst camping at Defqon.1? Remember that mix? Okay, you do. That mix was done by the Infectious DJ’s, and now one half of this duo has decided to do his own project aside of it, called ‘The Chainbreaker’. Now the Infectious DJ’s were new to me, so I couldn’t mention anything about them, but now this new project I literally know nothing about, only that the person behind it is one half of Infectious DJ’s. Well, let’s focus on the music, shall we?

I think it’s best to focus on the music. This rather new project is so new, it still has the wrap around it, and it still shines extremely bright. What this concept is about, is to play what doesn’t fit in the Infectious DJ’s playlist. Are you confused yet? It’s not that complicated at all. Two projects, focussed on bringing the music towards you. This half has decided to make his first mix, and it’s called ‘XTRA RAWFARE’. It’s packed with really interesting tunes by names such as E-Force, D-Sturb, Regain, Luminite and more.

Let’s check out the tracklist. If you are into Hardstyle and its sibling Rawstyle you are definately going to appreciate this tracklist. The Chainbreaker has picked really good anthems, and if you don’t believe me, look down to the tracklist now!

tracklist

01. D-Sturb – High Power
02. Two Sixty – Child’s Play
03. E-Force & Bass Chaserz – Attack
04. Raiden & E-Force – Beware
05. Regain – All In Darkness
06. D-Sturb & Emese – Legacy
07. Warface – Fake Ass Bitches
08. E-Force – The Dead Rap
09. X-Pander & Lowroller – Animal
10. War Force – Reloaded
11. War Force – Break Your Ankles
12. Luminite – Maccarena Deathmatch

It’s a short but really interesting mix. So this is the stuff Infectious DJ’s don’t play? Everyone should play this, because it’s awesome music. Untouchable music. Anthems for the future. This will still sound awesome in 100 years from now!

The might starts off with what is the greatest anthem I’ve heard in a while! Sweet Lord, this made me press repeat again and again! This is really uplifting and euphoric Hardstyle/Rawstyle. This is the music I was after. Hard, and yet beautiful at the same time. That is definately the greatest record in this mix, and a good starter of this first episode of XTRA RAWFARE.

Record after record the level of awesomeness stays high. I really liked this first instalment, and I reckon the Chainbreaker will keep on posting awesome mixes like this one for quite a while. Unless he makes a Justin Bieber dedication mix: if he does so, I will stop following him. But until then it’s the Chainbreaker all the way.

This was an epic first mix. And I’ve really enjoyed it. Can’t mention anything bad about it. Well, maybe the fact that it’s not downloadable, but that’s just a minor thing, isn’t it? Not something I should deduct points for.

Get this down you right now. Press play and make this Sunday the best one you’ve had in 2017. Wake up the neighbourhood, and let them know what kind of music you support!
