Some days you are on Soundcloud and find nothing, and some days the mixes just come flying towards you, non stop. Today was such a day! It won’t stop, the music kept on pouring and pouring. One of those mixes I had to share with you all, it might be a couple of years old, but it’s still fresh as a daisy! A mix to promote the event which obviously already took place: back2school in 2013. So there’s no need of you all getting hyped up for this specific event, but you could look out for similar events in the near future. And whilst waiting, you could listen to this mix, made by DJ Pila.
I’ve seen the name Pila fly by every so often, but I can’t tell you anything about this DJ. Don’t know nothing about him (or is it her?). I’m sorry for not knowing each and every artist on God’s given Earth, but bear with me, and I will look it up. Oh, it’s a him by the way, and he’s been in the scene for quite a while (looking at one of his releases on Discogs, which dates back to 1995). I told you I’ve seen the name fly by a couple of times, but that was all.
Anyway, before we go on and on about the same thing, it’s time to focus on this promomix, which he made back in 2013. It’s packed with the finest Early Hardstyle/Hard Dance tracks, those I really miss. This is the kind of music I fell in love with when it emerged. This is the Hardstyle I love. Still digging the new stuff, but the early 00s stuff is much better.

This is so awesome to hear these tunes again! I remember buying ‘Bitte Ein Beat’ CDs and they rocked. They were unique and fresh, and back in the early 00s they were basically the shit. Shit hot. This music was so refreshing, and even listening to this in 2017 it’s ground breaking stuff. Quality over quantity, and many producers can learn from these producers who made Hard Dance music.
Pila’s selection is awesome! I know each and every track, and have played them over and over again. I’m sorry if the amount of Soundcloud plays have gone up in the last couple of hours, it’s just me pressing play over and over again! What a brilliant mix, quality tracks in it. And you wonder what happened to this specific sound, eh?
Yes, this is the mix you were after on this dreadful, cold and miserable Sunday. This will enlighten your mood, unless you are too young to remember what Early Hardstyle/Hard Dance sounded like. Enjoy it no matter what!
Which is my favourite track in this mix? Got to be ‘Grindin”. Just a brilliant anthem!
