Damn and blast, I am always too damn late. Just found this mix a couple of days ago, and only now got the chance to review it, and the event literally happened last night! Syndicate took place on the 7th of October at the Westfalenhallen in Dortmund, and the line-up was a Hardcore fan’s dream! Angerfist, Radical Redemption, Miss K8, Destructive Tendencies, Mad Dog, Korsakoff and more. But there was also room for Raw and Hardstyle, so those who went to Syndicate are probably laying in bed now, somewhere in a hotel in Dortmund, with a pounding headache and a constant beep in their head.
This promo mix, as you have noticed, has been made by one of the leading female DJs in the Hardcore scene, Korsakoff. She also played at Syndicate (would be a tad weird, to make a promo mix and not being there). She decided to make a really interesting looking and sounding mix, to get everyone hyped up. Well, those who went got two things for the price of one: an awesome event, and towards it excellent music. I’ve seen pictures from last night, and it looked astonishing.
She kindly added a tracklist, which always comes in handy. And it’s a diverse tracklist, you will see in a minute why!

A short mix, but very descent. Strong, and yet quirky. She has done her best to persuade the party goers to leave their bad mood at home, and only bring your Nikes, your training suit, and smiles for miles. This mix has definately worked. There’s one track I (as being from Limburg) at first disliked, but after hearing those memorable sounds it took me back home. Home to Limburg. I’ll tell you in a minute which track it is.
I love the first record. It sets the tone for the rest of the mix. Not really a fan of ‘Ring Of Fire’. The original is dull, and you can not improve a boring record by putting a beat underneath it. But that’s the only record I didn’t like.
Korsakoff, the Queen of Hardcore, has given us a nice mix to get us through the weekend. But the one track which made me smile for miles for being so daft, stupid, and yet f**king brilliant: ‘Oktoberfest Anthem’. I’m from Limburg, and the rest of the Netherlands see us as spare Germans anyway. And yes, this reminds me of Carnaval in Limburg. And with this beat underneath it, it makes me want to go absolutely apeshit. I’m loving this.
I reckon Korsakoff and thousands of ravers are still in bed. Let them sleep.They’ve already given their all last night. I sadly didn’t, so here in London Hardcore is coming through my speakers, and I simply couldn’t care less!
