You can say whatever you like, but if you like Oldskool and you are not following Bass-D or ever heard of him, you ain’t Hardcore mate. This is probably the biggest DJ in the scene when it comes to mixes, no one can beat his mixes. Check out his Soundcloud for hours of fun. The amount of mixes he has on there is staggering! This man knows how to please the listeners at home, and let’s not forget the ravers all over the world, seeing as he still plays at massive events. One of the most recent ones was Multigroove, which took place in February. And seeing as I’m a huge Oldskool fan, I am hitting myself in the head for not going, because the line-up is so amazing, it’s an Oldskool raver’s wet dream: The Prophet, Darkraver, Dano, Champ-e-on, CJ Bolland, Franky Jones, Deepack, Luna, Thera, Pavo, Buzz Fuzz, Jaydee, Fierce Rulling Diva, Spider, JP, Abraxas, Flamman, Voodoo Child, and many more. Sweet Lord, how come I’ve missed this event?

To promote this event he made this promo mix. And it’s yet another stunning mix. Yes, 84 records in 2 hours and 35 minute long mix. Bass-D was unstoppable. I seriously don’t know how he does it, but every mix he makes is good from the first to the last second. It’s jam packed with serious Oldskool anthems from several genres like Techno, Rave, Acid House and more. Not focussed on just the Hardcore side of life, but he plays a wide variety of music. That’s why Bass-D is liked by many and still plays at events such as Multigroove.

Credits to Bass-D to play these tunes most of us have forgotten about. This tracklist will blow your mind away, it will give you goosebumps and it will make you go through your collection and dig out those classic anthems on vinyl or CD again and play them out loud. Don’t worry, if they are unplayable, just press play on this mix, and you are instantly back in 1992.

Seriously, how awesome is this tracklist? We’ve forgotten about these gems really quickly, and it’s a shame we don’t hear them more often. They were part of my youth, this is the stuff I listened to when I was a teenager.

Bass-D made yet another awesome mix with shitloads of excellent tracks such as ‘Brainwash Killer’, ‘Criminal Mind’, ‘El Punto Final’, ‘Looped’, ‘Industrium’, ‘Compnded’, ’88 To Piano’, ‘Stakker Humanoid’, ‘Hablando’… and the list goes on. Sweet Lord, can’t believe these records are already seen as ancient. To me these tracks are timeless. If I had to choose between a event with current music or this music, Oldskool stuff, I would prefer the Oldskool stuff above everything else.

Of course I knew the majority of the records, but a few I didn’t, and that’s because I did not have the resources back in the 90s to buy everything. Bass-D could, and thanks to him he introduced me to a track which I never heard before, but instantly fell in love with: ‘Tone Exploitation’. What an ANTHEM and a half! Seriously, this blew my mind away!

I’m digging most tracks. Yeah, there were one or two cheesy records such as ‘Huga Chaka’ (whenever I hear that, it reminds me of an intro of House Party), or ‘B.O.T.T.R.O.P.’. I’m probably the only Oldskool lover who doesn’t like that track. Too weird, not my liking.

I can not express my happiness when I heard this mix for the first time. And thanks to Bass-D it’s going on my USB stick and a CD and on my phone and it will be played out loud for the next couple of weeks. And it’s also a reminder how awesome the 90s were, and that nothing can beat the music. And also that Bass-D is a boss. He should change his name to Boss-D.

Next Multigroove I shall be there. I will do my best. I need this music more than I need air.

Another day, another mix. This time it’s a mix made by DJ Terror a.k.a. Accuser. Yes, you must know his name, you’ve probably seen his name on my website (I’ve interviewed him a couple of months ago, worth checking out). But for now you should check out this mix, because it’s a beauty. If you weren’t born in the 80s or 90s and you have no idea what Breakbeat Hardcore/Rave/Happy Hardcore is, it’s definately time for you to figure out what it is, and why not let this mix be your guide to the wonderful world of beats, basses, melodies, and a lot of piano bits and bobs?!

This era meant the most to me. To me this era beats the present day when it comes to the quality of the music. Yes, music has progressed, but sometimes I wonder why this kind of music has stayed in the past and not moved along aswel? I think this bass-filled music should have moved too, but on the other hand it’s good that we’ve got something to look back at, and acknowledge that it had a tremendous impact in our little rave culture.

The tunes DJ Terror has selected are raw, and filled with the dirtiest basses you haven’t heard in a while. The tracklist is insane, trust me. If you are old (as I am) and you know the music, you will get an erection if you just glimpse at this tracklist.

tracklist

Beautiful. Got no other word to describe this tracklist. Well, maybe gorgeous, or outstanding. You get the gist. It’s an good looking tracklist, and in all fairness this is what I was after.

DJ Terror has made a seriously insane mix! I’ve downloaded this only a day ago, and I’ve already played it 40 times! The reason why? Well, it’s bass-focussed, and even with my bog standard Volvo s40 speakers this mix made my windows tremble. When I drove passed people walking down the street, they were looking at me, thinking that I must be completely insane to play this out loud! The bass levels were ridicilous, it made everything move! It was like experiencing earthquakes inside my car for about 50 minutes!

Best record? ‘Ruff’. End off.

Check this mix out right now!

I know I am a bit late with this mix, but thankfully it’s still on Soundcloud. As you all know, I’ve been following DJ Flashback/Flashback Project for a while now, and he always brought me joy and elation when it comes to his music. Every mix made by Flashback has always been a succes, and I can honestly say that he has never disappointed me. After browsing Soundcloud I found a mix done by him 5 years ago, back in 2011, a dedication mix for Chris Savage a.k.a. DJ Sav. I sadly don’t know who he was, but if you have anyone making you a dedication mix, you have meant a lot to him. A nice thing to do, and this dedication mix is quite a good one.

The mix is 5 years old, still sounding fresh. How’s that possible you might wonder? Well, it’s because the music Flashback plays is all oldskool music, and as we all know, this kind of music is timeless. You can listen to a mixtape from the 90s and still go absolutely nuts on it. The quality of the recording might be outdated, but not the music itself. He keeps pushing the oldskool sound forward, and it’s always a joy to see a mix done by Flashback. This one has a nice tracklist I really want to show you!

28. DJ Jinx – Paradise Project

The tracklist is beautiful, but what’s even better than a beautiful tracklist? A descent mix! I’ve found this one, maybe 5 years too late, but it’s never too late to fall in love with a mix?!

I’ve got nothing wrong to mention about this mix. Flashback always delivers, and is always spot on. He might be underrated as a DJ and producer, but if you listen to mixes like this one you know he’s the real deal. Rather Flashback than David Guetta or any other fake DJ. Flashback is a legend in my book, and that’s all that matters.

I have really enjoyed this mix. A lot of piano bits, and who doesn’t like that? A nice proper oldskool sounding mix, not annoying or a nuisance to listen to, but just spot on.

Many can learn from the skills, this man has got them all. Who needs to throw things in bins or behind their ears and say that he’s got skills, when you’ve got DJs who actually know how to do a proper mix, descent and actually extremely entertaining.

Each and every track is a slammer. Dancefloor smashers.

This is a must listen to mix. It’s still downloadable, and I urge you to give this a go. Flashback is a hero. And whoever he made this mix for, he must be smiling down when he heard this mix for the first time.

Soundcloud is filled with awesome music, and also mixes from the golden age of Hardcore. As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve only recently moved to the UK, and during the years of me living in my Motherland I have missed out on a lot of compilations, such as the one this review is focussed on. ‘Battle Of The DJ’s’? Never heard of it before. Never seen it before. All brand new, even thought it’s 12 years old. Thanks to RSR Recordings for uploading Ramos, Supreme & Sunset Regime’s mix on this compilation (the second disc was a mix by Force and Styles.

After a quick look on Discogs I found out that the label which released this compilation only released albums in 2003 and 2004, and was run by Slipmatt and DJ Slam. Only 10 releases,and it stopped. Several mixes were released on Beats24-7, and the first one of the ‘Battle Of The DJ’s’ was between Slipmatt and DJ Vibes. After the second volume they stopped. The first CD of the second instalment can be found on Soundcloud, or underneath this review. The mix was done by (as I said before) Ramos, Sunset Regime and Supreme. Thankfully Discogs provided us with a tracklist, where would we be without our friends at Discogs?

tracklist

01. Citadel Of Kaos & Justin Time – Rock The Disco
02. Sunset Regime – Fire This Time
03. DJ Seduction – Samplemania (Remix) 
04. J.D.S. & DJ Fury – Age Of Stomp
05. Supreme & UFO – Forever Autumn
06. DJ Stompy, Supreme & UFO – Here Beside Me
07. Hixxy – Thumper
08. DJ Stompy – I Believe
09. Supreme & UFO – Paradise
10. DJ Lee – A Touch Of Darkness
11. Sunset Regime – Fire This Time
12. Ramos, Supreme & Sunset Regime – Sunshine
13. DJ Slam – Influence
14. Sunset Regime – Tribal Chant
15. DJ Sy & Eruption – 12″ Of Love
16. Ramos, Supreme & UFO – Terminator
17. Mr. Hyde & UFO – Organ Power
18. Trance Masters – Acid Sunshine

As I’ve missed out on most tracks released back in the 90s and 00s, this is for me the perfect way to catch up. Thanks to RSR Recordings and others for uploading ‘old’ albums, which are probably rare to get anyway. The best thing about this? It’s for free! Check it out on Soundcloud right now, and there’s much more if you want to get that Sunday buzz feeling.

It’s weird to say that this mix is 12 years old. Still sounds crisp and sharp. The music scene might have changed, but not the power behind those dancefloor anthems. I am fascinated about the fact that we as humans might age, but music simply doesn’t. I reckon you can still listen to this mix in a 100 years time and it will still sound awesome and epic.

Favourite track? Well, I don’t know the title, I think it’s ‘Age Of Stomp’? The lyrics in my favourite track are ‘I like the things that go boom’. Now I’m not sure if that’s the title of the track (‘Age Of Stomp’), could be the next one, but the one with those lyrics in it is my favourite!

A wonderful mix by Ramos, Sunset Regime and Supreme. Don’t know who won this battle, haven’t heard the second disc yet. There must be a version of it somewhere hidden on Soundcloud, and I will chase it down, so I can compare who actually won. It will be difficult, seeing as the tracklist for the second disc is also a slammer.

Free download! Check it out!
