It’s been quite a while now since the last Casketkrusher mix, but now I’ve found yet another nice hour long mix by one of the dopest producers out there. This time it’s not a mix to showcase his own productions, but a proper Gabber mix with well known tunes from the golden age of Hardcore. And I don’t need to express myself by saying I do love Hardcore a lot, especially the kind of Hardcore which crosses over from the Gabber to the Happy stuff. And that’s exactly what he has picked.
I’ve not heard these tunes in years, and some are even unknown to me. I was a picky bastard during the 90s, and only bought something with ‘Arcade’ written on the side of it, just to please my OCD (it would look nice on my shelf). I got annoyed when they changed the layout of the sides of Thunderdome albums, that completely ruined my life for a split second. So basically what I’m trying to say is the fact that I’ve missed out on a lot of music. I am catching up, and with this awesome yearmix I’ve caught up on a few smashers!
Let me show you this beauty.
01. DJ Delirium – Rock Your Body
02. Happymen – Love Is You (Stunned Guys Hardcore Mix)
03. Darrien Kelly + The Stunned Guys – Party Rico!
04. Hyperbass – Generator (Scott Brown Mix)
05. Reyes – Rock With Me
06. Dark Salvation – My Style
07. Tri Pax – Drop The Bomb!
08. U.F.O. – All We Do Is Rave (Hardcore Remix)
09. DJ Pagan meets G-Town Madness – Power Too
10. M.D. & A. – Better Than Dope
11. Scott Brown – Fast Beat
12. Dark Destination – Impulsive
13. Dennis M – Check It Out
14. DJ Rob – DJ Rob’s 20 Seconds
15. Insane – Kiss My Ass
16. Omar Santana – Boy Is Bangin’
17. The Coalition – 9mm
18. Rob Gee – Gabber Up Your Ass
19. DJ Pagan meets G-Town Madness – Duits Gelul
20. Buzz Fuzz & Rob Gee – Get The Fuck Up
21. DJ Dano & Liza N Eliaz – Stereotype
Now this brings a smile on my face. You normally get the standard mixes, but it’s these hidden gems in mixes that make me smile the most. It’s always a happy moment when you press play on a mix which has a dope tracklist, and Casketkrusher always pleases the listeners a lot with his music.
This mix is dangerous. Seriously dangerous. Casketkrusher’s personal collection is impressive, if he’s got these really good records in it. How he finds them is beyond me. But to celebrate yet another amazing year for him and his label he uploaded this mix 3 months ago, and in 2018 I’m enjoying this oldskool Hardcore sound. It’s like it touches me more than ever before. If you are questioning me why, you should just look at the bloody tracklist!
A lot of fucking epic records. Which is my favourite? Well, that’s easy, the first one. And the second, and let’s not forget the third. How annoying it is to hear ‘Party Rico!’, because you know it will stay in your head for quite a while.
It does contain a few weird records, like ‘Duits Gelul’ and ‘Stereotype’, which aren’t my cup of tea. I do like G-Town Madness, but they’ve made much better records. And this experimental side of Dano and Liza N Eliaz ain’t my cup of tea either.
But let’s not forget the power behind these tunes. Yeah, we can manage with a few ‘meh’ records. All in all, this yearmix is dope. Yet another amazing mix by Casketkrusher. Is there anything he can’t do?
