arpz – A Christmas Cracker (2017)
The last time I heard from DJ arpz was exactly a year ago, when he made his December 2016 mix. Before that it was twice in 2014, when he made the HU and Fracus & Darwin mixes, and he’s back now with yet another amazing UK Hardcore mix! This time it’s a mix with old and new records, from albums such as Sharkey’s album, Hardcore Heaven 3, Al Storm’s album, and from labels such as Kniteforce, Legitimate Recordings, CLSM and more. How about that, eh? Isn’t that a beautiful Christmas present? Oh, and it’s also a free download, so another reason to give this mix a go.
This contains everything you were after: UK Hardcore, Breakbeat Hardcore, Happy Hardcore, Freeform, and a lot more. Christmas has come early this year, and it has put a smile on my face. The last couple of mixes by arpz have always a joy to listen to, and after glancing at the tracklist, it literally gave me an erection! The scene has been booming with a lot of releases (album-wise), but I haven’t bought anything recently. And this mix shows me how dumb I am for not doing so.
Well, it’s Christmas, maybe Santa has given me albums in my stockings? Doesn’t look like it, and if he hasn’t put anything in there, I must go and buy albums. Just to give me my daily buzz. This mix has done enough damage to my eardrums and has caused Endorphines to rage through my body… I need more music! I need albums…

There’s simply too many awesome records in here, this is just pure madness from the first to the last second. Especially those records from Kniteforce and CLSM, boy, they are filthy Breakbeat/Drum & Bass records.
What makes me tingle? Mixes like this one. They are diverse, and contain shitloads of amazing records. From old to new records, by big names and upcoming acts, you can find everything in here. You know you get quality, and sadly mixes such as this one are underrated, but let’s make it a good Christmas for all of us, and share it as much as you can. Especially with one of the dopest records ever made with the sweetest vocals ever: ‘Thunderground’.
I am a big fan of this kind of music, and I don’t mind sharing this. arpz’s mix is intoxicating, and fresh. With a lot of amazing records (with one or two bad ones, but that’s not really an issue, is it?) this will give you goosebumps, and smiles for miles. And it’s got ‘Thunderground’. When the first record ever called ‘Thunderground’ was released back in the 90s, I fell in love. Darkraver and DJ Vince made a wicked record. But from now on this version by Al Storm and Vicky Fee remains the one and only Thunderground.
Wicked mix, arpz. Truly astonishing! Have a wicked Christmas. You made sure mine is awesome!
