Last weekend I was awoken by the sheer power of Thunderdome, and I think the whole world watched it happened live on Youtube and everywhere else. And the one set that blew me away was Destructive Tendencies set. What a blinding set. I was proud of what they did achieve in just a few years time. But after seeing that set, I knew that it would be on Soundcloud anytime soon (hopefully with a tracklist), but there was an urge deep down inside to hear a Joey Riot set. Don’t ask me why, because I simply don’t know.
I went on a quest, and found a lot of his livesets, from the biggest events, recorded all over the world. But the majority sadly do not have any tracklists, so it was difficult. After about 30 minutes I found one, and it was his set recorded back in 2014 at Ibiza Goes Hard. Hopefully I don’t need to mention where it took place (look at the bloody title). His set was recorded at one of the world’s biggest events, a well loved and embraced party, which takes place every year.
I was actually looking for a UK Hardcore set, but this set will do. It’s a Gabber/Hardcore set, and sadly only half an hour long. But if you were looking for a Joey Riot set with a tracklist, you won’t find many. Or those you can find with a tracklist, I already reviewed. No point in doing another review, eh?
Let me show you the tracklist. 11 tracks in 30 minutes, mixed by one of the best Scottish DJs out there!
01. Thorax – Crazy Bitch
02. DJ Mad Dog – Agony (Destructive Tendencies Remix) (Edit)
03. Destructive Tendencies – Our Core
04. X-clusive & Trypsin – Booom!
05. Joey Riot & It-Man – You Will Be The Last
06. Crossfiyah – The Reckoning
07. Destructive Tendencies – This Is Your Moment
08. Rayden feat Miss Twilight – Break The Silence
09. The Geminizers – Out Of Control (Destructive Tendencies Remix)
10. Biorekk – Psychotic
11. Neophyte, Tieum & Rob Gee – Coming At You Strong
Joey Riot, what a blinding set he did. This was all before Destructive Tendencies took over the world. They were on their way, but to reach the stage they are at right now, it would take a few more months.
Joey wasn’t the only one at this event: Angerfist, Partyraiser, Miss K8, Sandy Warez, F.Noize, Destructive Tendencies, Big-Worm, and more. A killer line-up for a killer event. And with this set he shows that he’s capable of doing literally everything. He started in the UK Hardcore scene and grew bigger and bigger, but this world was too small for his talents. He started to expand his musical strength and knowledge, and we now know where it lead to (c.q. Destructive Tendencies).
The only bad thing about this set, is that it’s only 30 minutes long. Oh, and the microphone sounds distorted from time to time. But that’s all. Record-wise it’s still slamming and banging. Joey shows the crowd in Ibiza what he’s capable of, and destroys the speakers. And all that in 30 minutes.
Got no negative comments whatsoever. Only positive ones. And my favourite record has got to be ‘Agony’, the one that made the world aware of Destructive Tendencies. Brilliant track.
Joey is one of my favourite DJs of all time. Without a shadow of a doubt. So make sure you check out this website soon, because I reckon the liveset from Destructive Tendencies will be online, and I will share it. Why? Because it’s the best set of 2017, hands down!
