Waking up on this lovely Sunday morning is always bliss. I’m not the type of person to lay in, I find it annoying. I am missing out on so many things, hence why every day I wake up at 8 (during the weekends of course). I just love to go onto Soundcloud and discover yet another new mix I haven’t heard before. I was first on a quest to find a descent Early Hardcore mix, and it took me a while, seeing as I’ve listened to the majority of them so far, and I needed one with a tracklist. It took me a few minutes, but I found one, 4 years old, mixed by DJ Bazzo, and it contains records from 1991 til 1994.
I absolutely know nothing about the DJ. So that’s a waste of time for me, to talk about him. So let’s dive straight into the mix, and the records he has selected. As I said before, he has selected records from 1991 until 1994, and these are the golden years for me, because I started to develop a love for Hardcore/Gabber music around 1993. So all the tunes in this mix are well known to me, not one unknown record. This feels good, to hear these anthems again. Can’t believe they are so old already! They still sound fresh, and like they were only made yesterday!
The tracklist was kindly provided. So here are the tracks DJ Bazzo has used for this mix!
01. Kuadra – La Onda (La Onda De Einstein Mix)
02. DJ Bountyhunter – Woops
03. Tellurian – Navigator
04. Lt. d’Amato – Sounds Of Frustration
05. Ramirez – Terapia
06. Obsessive – Tune In Turn Out
07. Rexanthony – For You Marlene
08. Wasteland – Is It Acceptable
09. DJ Hooligan – B.O.T.T.R.O.P.
10. Mescalinum United – We Have Arrived
11. Hardsequencer – Brain Crash
12. Jones & Stephenson – The First Rebirth
13. English Muffin – Blood Of An English Muffin
14. Square Dimension – A Brand New Dance
15. Hardliners – Motherfuckin’ Breakbeat
16. Too Fast For Mellow – Wooh!
17. 2 Uninterested – I Don’t Care (Lenny Dee Remix)
18. Bass X – Motherfucker
This has got so many great anthems, it’s unbelievable! Have not seen a few for many years. Or heard. I meant heard. DJ Bazzo’s mix brings out the finest in Hardcore all together in an hour long mix.
He starts off with an excellent track, and continues with only the finest records. Yes, some we’ve heard a billion times, but they still pack a punch! Just look at the tracklist, and tell me you don’t get a boner. Or the female equivalent of a boner. And he also played the biggest dancefloor smasher of all time: ‘The First Rebirth’! Now that’s an anthem for a lost generation, and we were lost in the 90s!
I do like all the records. Even the silly sounding ‘B.O.T.T.R.O.P.’ fits this mix beautifully. Still don’t feel the power behind it, I find it rather a silly record, but it was part of my youth, so I will accept it in this mix. But which record is the best? ‘Is It Acceptable’ is the one for me. This record reminds me of the best megamix compilation ever: House Party X.
A nice mix, 4 years old, but the tracks Bazzo selected are truly astonishing, and timeless classics. A few mixing errors, but nothing to major. A nice mix to start your Sunday with! Hardcore classics, who doesn’t want to hear those?
