I only found this mix yesterday, and I was one of the first people to listen to it, and literally go ape during the mix. It’s a promo mix for upcoming Free Festival, a festival that doesn’t need an introduction. This year’s edition takes place on the 1st of July, at Almere Strand, the Netherlands. And I reckon you already purchased tickets, because on Facebook it says that 3.8k people are going. You are probably going to the Hardcore bit, where Angerfist, Korsakoff, Miss K8, Destructive Tendencies, Scarphase, Dr. Peacock and more play. Or to the Hardstyle area, where you can find Radical Redemption, Wildstylez, Atmozfears, Crypsis and more. Or, as the Dutch would say, ‘doe eens gek’ and visit the Foolish area, at which DJs such as Darkraver, Ruthless, The Viper, Technoboy, Tuneboy, Bass-D and more play. Oh, and also Kit Hype, who I’ve sadly never heard before.

This mix is for those who are going to visit the Foolish area, and it’s a beautiful looking area. With so many great names, it’s a must see area. How can you avoid this area, when they’ve got so many great names? Yeah, i know, it will be difficult, because the whole line-up for the event looks amazing. Every area is a must go to, but just for your consideration, check out this mix. And you will immediately be drawn towards the Foolish area, you will. And guess who’s playing there? That’s right, the DJs who made this promo mix.

The tracklist is a beauty, random as hell. Not your ordinary tracklist. Name one mix in which they jump from style to style with ease, and even cram in some Hardcore in the middle of the mix?

This is one amazing tracklist! How diverse is this? This is what Freestyle represents: do whatever you like, play whatever you like, as long as it gets the crowd jumping up and down, and causing earthquakes.

This mix does exactly what you want it to. It demolishes you. It changes you into this creature feared by many. The way this mix is build-up, is immense. You don’t know which track comes next, or what kind of style it represents. It’s like a tsunami, wave after wave hits you!

The Viper obviously knows how to please the listeners, he’s a well established name in the industry, but Kit Hype is new, but he leaves a good impression on me. His tunes can also be found in this mix, which makes the mix even more dangerous!!

There are so many records to choose from, but this mix introduced me to one of the most amazing records ever made: ‘Locust’. Seriously, the level of filth can not be topped by any other record in this mix. Sadly played too short, this track deserves more time. I reckon when they play it at Free Festival, the crowd will loose it.

The Viper and Kit Hype, you’ve delivered an amazing mix! I sadly can’t go to Free Festival, but you, the reader, should. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t. Let this mix put you in the right direction….

When a title of a mix(tape) is all in capitals, it must mean it’s fire. I saw this promo video the other week, and I got intrigued. Someone using the word ‘fuck’ so many times, that’s interesting. And also the music in the video was interesting. The name of the person? SPYRO. Yes, you recognise the name, and now there’s no hiding it: he’s after everyone, making sure you get this mixtape and play it out loud, waking up the whole area with his new sound. What does he call his new sound/style? Is it SPYROCore?

Wasn’t he Lethal Theory’s latest signing? And he releases his mix right on time, before the Summer kicks in and people are out and about. People can download this beast right now, and listen to it for months in a row. Why? Because we are the turn generation. If you are not, you are not allowed to download this mix. Read the title, and realise secretly that you are turnt.

Don’t know much about SPYRO, only that he’s made several tracks with Alex Prospect, which I’ve heard in many mixes before. It’s basically his promo mix for this mix that intrigued me a lot. According to the video, he’s in search for a brand new sound, and with this mix he has achieved it. Yes, it’s still UK Hardcore but with a twist. What’s that twist? Don’t have a clue, but it does sound good!


01. Intro 
02. SPYRO – Diamond Mouth
03. SPYRO – How Deep Is Your Love
04. DJ Snake – Turn Down For What (SPYRO RE-FLEX) 
05. SPYRO – Drop It Low
06. Migos – Look At My Dab (Bad Royale & Diplo Remix) (SPYRO RE-FLEX) 
07. SPYRO – Throwin’ Hunna
08. SPYRO & Alex Prospect – Heads In The Clouds
09. SPYRO – Gotta Get Lo
10. SPYRO – Original Bad Boy
11. SPYRO – Green Drink Paint Party
12. SPYRO x Alex Prospect – Intoxicated
13. SPYRO – Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit
14. SPYRO & Alex Prospect – Need U 100%
15. SPYRO & Alex Prospect – Up 2 No Good (SPYRO FESTIVAL FLEX) 
16. SPYRO – Don’t Let Me Down x Better Off Alone (RE-FLEX) 
17. SPYRO – Mad Ting Mashup (Come With Me)

This mix is fire. And yes, it’s unique. The sound that he makes is unusual. It combines several styles into one. Like Gammer did before, but SPYRO perfected it. There’s still no name to it, but if it’s going to be named EDMCore, let me all warn you: months ago I was the first to come up with that term.

Anyway, SPYRO’s mix is indeed fire, but why so short? I don’t know why this mix is so short, I was really digging it, and then I realised that the mix was over. Only 20 minutes long. Why? Most mixes are at least double the length, but maybe it’s to tease people even more, getting hyped up for the sensation that is SPYRO.

What’s the biggest track in this mix? ‘Drop It Low’. Which is the ‘not the best track in this mix’? ‘Up 2 No Good’. Really like the original too much.

The speed at which these tunes hit you is unreal. 20 minutes of SPYRO madness. Have you listened to this mix already? You haven’t? Check it out on Soundcloud, it’s worth all the hype around it. Even me, TCD, got hooked on the ride, and promoted the video on my mainpage. But now the mixtape is out, it’s time for us all to appreciate it. And so should you!

SPYRO. Big mix!

You are probably a UK Hardcore fan, aren’t you? And if you are, you have to acknowledge that the biggest superstar DJ in our scene is the one and only DJ Darren Styles. He’s the biggest and baddest, and took the scene to the next level. Yes, we all remember the good ol’ days when he made UK Hardcore and pop tunes at the same time, and his tracks appeared in the top 40, but now he’s leaving the UK (not technically true, but for this sentence it works) and taking over the world. Spreading the UK Hardcore virus, but with a twist. And that twist is what I like to call ‘EDMCore’, which is UK Hardcore but made more accessible for outsiders. He’s a game changer, and no one can beat this legend.

If you look at this mix, which was only uploaded 15 days ago, it already had 34k plays! In all fairness, no other DJ can reach that. And the other thing (to prove how big he is as a DJ): he’s playing at Defqon.1 . He’s taking UK Hardcore to the biggest stages in the world, which he’s already doing. I think I saw pictures of him and Gammer in the States on their tour. These two are changing our scene, and I am happy for them doing so well. Take it all to the next stage, and we will take over the world. No one can ignore UK Hardcore, or Darren Styles!

I feel quite bad though, only discovered this mix yesterday. Why hasn’t this appeared on my timeline? I should have seen this before, seeing as I was listening to Darren Styles’ 2014 mix (which still rocks)…


01. Audiotricz – United As One (Zero Hero Remix) 
02. Darren Styles & Callum Higby – TMA
03. Darren Styles, Dougal & Gammer – Party Don’t Stop
04. Sander van Doorn, Martin Garrix & DVBBS feat Aleesia – Gold Skies (Darren Styles & Dougal Remix) 
05. Darren Styles & Gammer – OMG
06. Stonebank feat Ben Clark – The One (Darren Styles Remix) 
07. Darren Styles & Gammer – Big Ting
08. Darren Styles feat Christina Novelli – Sun Is Rising (Michael Zenden Remix) 
09. Darren Styles & Re-Con – Quiver
10. Pegboard Nerds x Quiet Disorder – Go Bezerk (Gammer Remix) 
11. Stonebank feat Emel – Ripped To Pieces
12. Kayzo x Riot – Wake Up
13. Skellism feat Darren Styles – Suffocate
14. Petruccio & Modulate – Missing (Gammer 2017 Remix)

25. Wasted Penguinz – Wait For You (Darren Styles & Gammer Remix) 
26. Darren Styles feat Molly – Never Forget You (Stonebank Remix) 

If you don’t like to see this much Darren Styles in one mix, go away. Go away right now! You ain’t Hardcore mate, you certainly aren’t Hardcore enough.

This mix contains the finest records made by the legend himself, alongside a few of his friends. The one he’s been making tracks with the most is obviously Gammer. First you had Dougal and Gammer, and now the mighty combination is Gammer and Darren Styles, they are making records with ease, and they are crowd pleasers. It doesn’t matter where you are from, the tracks will demolish your ears, and will leave you breathless. You can’t experience a Darren Styles set without loosing your breath.

This mix is just pure filth, but is it as good as his 2014 mix? Yes. As good. Maybe I prefer the 2014 mix a bit more, but that’s only because the tracks from then are more personal. But no matter how you compare these mixes, production wise Darren is on spot. He knows how to make the records sound great. So many great anthems are in this 2017 mix, but which one is my favourite? Because of the vocals I would choose ‘Burning Up’.

This is the mix you definately need to listen to, and share with your mates. It’s from one of the hottest stars in the scene, and maybe, I said maybe, he might do a 2017 mega mix? Who knows. 2017 ’s going to be big in any ways for Darren, and we wish him good luck, spreading the love, passion and dedication around the world. UK Hardcore is Darren, Darren is UK Hardcore.

Mmmm, what is We Are One Digital? I can’t tell you, in all fairness. I’ve seen in passing by on Facebook, but never really paid attention to it. What I can tell is that there’s a mix series on Soundcloud you can listen to, and the fourth instalment is the one I’m about to review. But if your thirst for UK Hardcore is never ending, why not check out the other mixes by DJ Brady, Ganar, and M-Soul? Nearly 4 hours of UK Hardcore, who doesn’t want to hear that?

Stu Woods doesn’t need an introduction: the amount of work he has put into bringing UK Hardcore to the masses is tremendous. He had his own show, and had the biggest names in his show, with dope mixes too. And with this mix he proves not only how he’s a good DJ, but also a good promoter of the scene we all love! Diversity is key, shall we say. Not only the most commercial records can be found in this, but also a few unknown tracks. Yes, you obviously find tracks by Dougal and Gammer, Kayzo, Joey Riot, Ultrabeat, but also tracks by Rescue, IYF, Stu Infinity, etc. A nice mix, with a shit load of awesome tracks.

This will be the soundtrack of this weekend. Come on everyone: open your windows (unless it’s raining and you don’t want your carpet to get wet) and play this out loud.


01. Welcome To Madness – DnB Intro
02. Re-Con – Fuel To Fire
03. Ultrabeat – Rain Stops (Re-Con & Blood Red Remix) 
04. M-Project & Jason Bouse & Al Storm – Rain
05. Joey Riot & Danny R Core – Dreamcatcher
06. Rescue – Shadows (4orce DJ Remix) 
07. Outforce & Hartshorn – Keep It Mello (Macks Wolf & Callum Higby Remix) 
08. Riot x Kayzo – Wake Up
09. Kayzo – Born Again (Darren Styles x Gammer Remix) 
10. Hixxy x Stonebank – Higher
11. Dougal & Gammer – Lifting Me Higher
12. Outforce & Age-O – Heart On My Sleeve
13. Ganar – I Want You (2017 Update) 
14. Rescue feat Katrina Louise – Follow Me
15. Stu Infinity – Walking Away
16. Wasted Penguinz – Make It One Day (Ganar Remix) 
17. S-Worx – Click Clack
18. Dave Castellano – Bitch
19. Plus System – Make You Freak (Hotchkiss & The Doctor Remix) 
20. IYF & Stu Woods – T-Virus

Diversity is what keeps the scene alive and kicking, and Stu Woods’ mix is spot on. Bringing the finest UK Hardcore to the masses, like he used to do with his show. This mix is blinding, and I’m not kissing his arse. Why should I, when this mix speaks for itself?

Ofcourse he had the biggest tunes in it, mainly Kayzo tracks (he’s tearing up the scene completely and beyond), and he also had a quirky intro. Madness and Drum and Bass? Does that work? In a weird way it did. So what are you waiting for? Press play, you know you want to. No one is stopping you.

There are a lot of amazing tracks in here, like ‘I Want You’, ‘Heart On My Sleeve’, ‘Born Again’, and I simply can’t pick one record as it being best. It’s too darn difficult. It’s as difficult as picking one of your kids as being favourite: you know you’ve got one, but you can’t say it. Oh wait, that’s the complete oppossite. Anyway, the mix is good, the tracks are good, a few are a bit boring (‘Lifting Me Higher’ is a definate radio killed record sadly, heard it too often).

We Are One Digital should be proud of Stu Woods’ mix, and I’m really excited to follow this new thingy on Soundcloud: if they’ve got more mixes coming up, I’m the first to know. You should do the same, and search also for Stu Woods, you don’t want to miss out on anything he does!
