If you are an 80s kid like I am and Dutch, you grew up during the 90s listening to Hardcore music. It was our way of expressing ourselves, stick a finger up to the establishment, and it did work. It was critised by the media and the government, and after a few years of it being succesfull it slowely died down, to re-emerge during the early noughties. But when it was big during the 90s, many labels were pushing Hardcore forward, and one of those labels was Mokum. This Amsterdam label started back in 1992, and had many well known names under their label signed, but also one of the world’s biggest Hardcore anthem ‘I Want To Be A Hippy’ by Technohead. A label with a rich history.
Their artist catalogue is impressive, these names were on Mokum’s artist list back in the 90s: Chosen Few, Technohead, Dano, Tellurian, Flamman & Abraxas, Buzz Fuzz, The Prophet, Scott Brown, and many, many more. They were also responsible for putting Hardcore music on the map, and they are a respected label. The amount of tunes they’ve released during the 90s are immense, and to showcase the label’s strength and diversity DJ Tellurian a.k.a. Leviathan made a mix back in 2012, an hour long mix filled with Mokum records. And if you haven’t heard it already, it’s a fantastic mix!
The amount of awesome records in this mix is amazing! It’s shows how great the label was (and still is). If you haven’t seen this mix, be prepared to be amazed!

Wow! Just simply wow! This is a serious mix, no mucking about. Pure power, pure roughness! Tellurian’s mix is serious fire, and will turn your weekend completely around!
As with other labels, Mokum had its own sound. You knew exactly when a tune was released on Mokum, or made by a Mokum artist. Amsterdam and Rotterdam, two different cities, two completely different sounds. But they both created masterpieces, and from Mokum’s perspective you can find a few in here: ‘Name Of The DJ’, ‘Used & Abused’, ‘Number One Contender’, ‘Mary-Jane’, but to me my favourite record of this mix has got to be ‘Guyver’. This was Hardcore music made back in the 90s, but so futuristic, people still don’t understand the true meaning of it, and its strength. Most Hardcore tunes can be pointed out to a certain period, but not ‘Guyver’. This is timeless Hardcore.
Tellurian’s mix is really cool. It might be 5 years old, but still sexy as hell! It’s got a few small errors but they are managable. Nothing to worry about.
What happened to me when I pressed play, was that I was immediately back in my bedroom, listening to Hardcore back in the 90s. I was listening and raving through my living room, and driving my parents completely nuts. This mix (and others alike) are so good, they take you back, way back, back into time. Let this mix guide you through this dark and boring weekend!
