The weekend has landed! Time for all of us to get ready to party! And you know what I’ll be doing? Checking our friend Soundcloud for music, and I found a set a couple of days ago, by a ‘new’ artist (to me), Hard Effectz. This Dutch DJ and producer’s name has not appeared on my timeline before, and seeing as it’s a liveset with a tracklist, I had to give it a go.
It’s a fairly new act, started back in 2016. And this upcoming played last year at an event I have not even heard of before, ‘Dream Village’. This three day event took place from the 1st to the 3rd of September in Bavel (wherever that might be lol). But they had a good looking line-up, especially the Hardcore area: Miss K8, Para Italia, Partyraiser, Repix, Mad Dog, Destructive Tendencies and more. So it seems to have been a good event, judging the Hardcore area alone.
His set was recorded, and contains a lot of different things. How shall I describe this set? Well, unusual. But good at the same time!

Are you noticing the same thing as I have? He’s a fan of mashups! His set does contain a lot of mashups. Not only by others, but also by himself. And that’s a good thing, so I can hear what he’s got to offer.
After listening to the tracks I am pleased to say that I’m digging the mashup thingy a lot. It’s not something I hear very often, and sometimes it doesn’t work (it’s too damn dull or annoying or used stupid records). Hard Effectz hasn’t at all.
The pleasing result is that this set has made me realise I’m a fan of the mashups, and love what Hard Effectz has done at Dream Village. This is really an interesting set, and kept me going, and will keep me going through the weekend!
Best record? Sorry to say, but it’s the ‘Thunderdome Mashup’. A true raver can’t pick another mashup. Thunderdome is life, isn’t it?
A wonderful set. The weekend can officially start right now!
