I don’t need to explain what the Next Generation Records label has done for the UK Hardcore scene. If the label is unknown to you, you are too young and unexperienced. That’s okay, you can still learn, young grasshopper, but it ain’t me who’s going to teach you. Learn it for yourself, and appreciate what the label has done for us all. Sadly, the label isn’t really doing anything at the moment. When it was run by Brisk and Ham, the label was an unstoppable force. One of the top labels in the scene, and even today they are still respected by many. The tunes they released were amazing, ground breaking!
M@rt!n-J has made yet another promo mix, showcasing his passion and dedication to one of the biggest labels ever to have excisted in the UK Hardcore scene. Like Stamina Records’ mix this has got a lot of the biggest anthems from the label, carefully selected and mixed together. If I show you the tracklist you will have a shock: you will realise that you know each and every song, and you’ve danced to each tunes from the early hours of the evening until the early hours the next morning!

14. Brisk & Vagabond – Black Mamba
I told you this tracklist would blow your mind away! What a wonderful mix, and the tracks are good. Seriously amazing stuff. So different compared to the stuff released now!
M@rt!n-J has picked awesome tunes: who doesn’t like ‘Get Away’, ‘Things You Do’, ‘Tokyo Rush’, ‘Getting Down’…. the list goes on. Impressive stuff. Why isn’t the label active anymore? It could be because Brisk lives 3456465 miles away, and Ham is doing Drum and Bass. But they should come back maybe for a one off, spend a weekend in a studio and compose a new album. It’s about time.
I love M@rt!n-J’s enthousiasme for labels and the music being released on them.It does have errors here and there, but it’s really enjoyable. Finally someone who lets tunes play out loud as long as he can. Some tweaking here and there and the mix could be the best Next Generation fan mix.
It could be me, but I don’t like ‘Sweet Love’. Sorry about that.
A dope mix, and so many quality tunes, but the one tune that still blows me away everytime I hear it is ‘Black Mamba’. The blend between Gabber and UK Hardcore sounded so good. This could have been a good set closing tune in the UK and the Netherlands. Sadly it didn’t catch on, but when I’m driving, I make sure the people around me know about this epic tune!
M@rt!n-J, keep those mixes coming. Really enjoy them!
