It’s Friday morning, and it’s very chilly. Most of the people need to go to work, but today I’ve got a nice day off. Why? Well, that’s non of your concern, but anyway, I’ve got time to write a review. And there’s been a mix on Soundcloud for three days I wanted to share with you all, but only found the time to write about it now. So sit back, and let this mix guide you through this cold and dreary Friday: a mix by the boys and girls at FINRG recordings.
The DJ who made this mix for the fourth instalment of the FINRG podcast is JNKS. I couldn’t find this artist on Facebook, so I couldn’t say who he/she is, and where he/she is from. So instead talking about the artist, let’s look at this mix FINRG has posted.
It’s an all vinyl mix, and it contains classics from the world of UK Hardcore, and also a few FINRG classics in here as well. And when I say classics, I do mean classics. Records from Ham, Dougal & Gammer, Dreadhed, Frisky & Hujib, Alek Száhala, Kevin Energy and more. An it’s an all vinyl mix! That’s something you need to think about! And something you should embrace. Who doesn’t love vinyl, eh?

Yep, they are classics! What a wonderful tracklist. It’s been a very long time since I last heard ‘Rip Roar’, probably Gammer’s finest record ever. Or even ‘Airhead’, ‘On Fire’, and more. Thanks JNKS for this wonderful mix!
It’s an hour and 4 minutes long, and it’s a nicely build up mix. Starting off slow, and slowely it becomes faster, rougher, darker, lighter and just perfect. I don’t know how to describe this mix without using the words ‘beautiful’ and ‘balanced’.
The amount of classics in this mix is just staggering. But not only are they classics, they are absolutely banging! As I said before, Gammer’s record in this mix is absolutely banging, and I’ve picked that one as my favourite in this mix. It’s bring a smile on my face, from ear to ear.
