MikeyMo – Classic Happy Hardcore Megamix (2012)

MikeyMo - Classic Happy Hardcore Megamix
Van Martin van Zeelandt

You, the reader, I’ve got a question for you: how old are you? Or how young? If you weren’t born before at least 1983, you have missed the Happy Hardcore scene completely, when it emerged back in 1994-1995, and when it sadly passed away in 1998-1999, you didn’t shed a single tear. And that’s a shame, because you missed such a wonderful time. Yes, there were some annoying bits too (the commercial side of it) and you thankfully missed the breakdown due to stupid fake ass producers, who made the worst kind of Happy Hardcore, because they only wanted to get money. Money grabbing motherf**kers. And a TV channel called ‘TMF’ ruined it too. There were multiple reasons why it died down quickly, but you all missed that.

It still hurts me, when people talk negative about Happy Hardcore. It was a style I listened to when I was a teenager, and it controlled my life completely. I didn’t understand it fully, because I was still young, but now, when I’m 34, I fully understand it, and bloody well miss it. It got ruined for no reason. Why? Play any wicked Happy Hardcore track (no Gabber Piet or Hakkuhbar or Reefteef stuff) and the crowds will loose it. Play ‘Luv U More’ by Paul Elstak (I think the original was done first by DJ Dougal) and everyone will sing along and give their all. It’s still seen as a cheesfest style, but that’s not fair.

Anyway, I woke up this morning, going through everything that Soundcloud had to offer, and all of a sudden I had a craving for those tunes, especially those tunes from the succesful compilation series by Arcade called ‘Happy Hardcore’. That was THE compilation for me. Arcade stopped releasing them around 1998, which is a pity, but the scene was slowely dying, so no money to be made from it.

Some DJ called MikeyMo uploaded this mix 6 years ago, back in 2012, and it’s a long one (at this point I am still listening to it, and haven’t reached the end yet). 2 1/2 hours long and 73 records. and that, ladies and gentlemen, is a long but satisfying mix. And after seeing the tracklist, it brought such a big smile on my face, not seen before (this big). Thanks MikeyMo so far.

What an insane tracklist! This is a wicked tracklist for those who really love the Happy Hardcore sound. And I’m one of them. This takes me back to a wonderful time I walked around with my first cassette player and one of the first non skipping portable CD player (which played every step you took). I felt so good, I was living in my own bubble. No one to interfering me. The bubble was my protection.

MikeyMo, whoever he is, made an excellent mix. I wanted to hear the big anthems from not only the Netherlands, but it was a must have. There are a few records here from all over the world, and there have been a lot of mixes on Soundcloud focussed on the UK side of Happy Hardcore, but seeing as I’m Dutch, I wanted the Dutch sound so badly, and was happy to see this mix.

He made a wicked mix, with a lot of excellent records. Maybe a few small mixing errors, but nothing shocking.

The records? Pff, I could write for hours how cool they are. And it’s so damn difficult to pick one favourite. It’s like asking (if you’ve got multiple kids) who’s your favourite. You simply can’t pick. And in this case, all of these records are loved by yours truly. These made me who I am, these changed my perspective on music. This is real music to me.

A wonderful mix. Nice and long. Powerful. Taking us back to the good ol’ days! What a wicked mix to end this week with!
