SPYRO. Who is he? Well, I can give you a short description (if you don’t know already): he’s the one DJ/producer who uses a lot of ‘fucks’ in his promo videos on Facebook. And when I say a lot, I do mean a lot. And he’s got funny hair. And he makes UK Hardcore/EDMCore music. His first mixtape was fire, truth be told. Now he’s back with a podcast series, all focussed on the Turnt generation (whatever that might be). An hour long of everything Spyro related. And he waffles on throughout the show, giving us insight information, or just whatever he wants to share with us.
He calls himself the ‘Traplord’. Mmm, interesting. He does indeed give us unusual music, that’s for sure. Music that shouldn’t be categorised as ‘UK Hardcore’, but it does contain Hardcore bits. Hence why I’ve been using EDMCore for many years. Whatever Spyro makes, it’s catchy as fuck (bloody hell Spyro, now I’m using fuck like you do. Thanks for that).
He has divided the mix into a few sections, like ‘TURNT AS FUCK TRACK’, ‘Roots ‘n’ FUTURE’, ‘THE MIX’. And within a day already 1000+ plays. People seem to like the mix a lot, or are wondering what Spyro has to offer. And it’s a big mix.
I think it’s necessary for you lot to see the tracklist right now. It’s lit as fuck (damn you Spyro)…..

Now that’s a tracklist and a half. Fucking hell. A very unusual mix. Normally you would expect a mix to contain only one style, maybe two, but not 20153 styles, like this podcast. Spyro does his thing, and he does it well, and doesn’t care if it’s labelled or not. Whatever floats his boat, he plays. Balls on the man, that’s for sure. But does it work?
Well, yes. Not all tracks are good, but maybe you need to listen to these tunes when you are in a club absolutely hammered. Like ‘Get Milli Get Donk’ and ‘Etap Riddim’. The original Bassline anthems are much better.
Any other negatives? Not really. Spyro’s enthusiasm is intoxicating. He inspires others to get behind the decks, and make mixes with whatever they want to play. It’s also good that he touches on the older sound, with his section ‘ROOTS ‘n’ FUTURE’.
His very first podcast, and it’s a success. It’s Wednesday morning and I’m the only one awake in the house, but not for long: the volume goes on max, and I’m livening up the whole area. Fuck it. If anyone blames me for playing the music out too loud, I will say: “well, this podcast is lit as FUCK!”.
