A couple of days ago I reviewed M-Project’s latest album, but I knew there was more about to happen in M-Project land: not only a brand new album, but also a new production mix, showcasing what he’s been doing. And what he’s not been doing. Well, the ‘not been doing’ bit is rather dull, so let’s focus on what the masked hero is doing at the moment: bringing out good music! A few tracks you get from his latest album ‘Weaponized’ can be found in this mix, and also a few other dancefloor smashers, like the remix he did for Dune, for his latest release ‘Starchild’.

M-Project is always busy. You can follow him on whatever page, and you will never be disappointed. One thing he has forgotten to do is buy socks (I’ve never seen a DJ behind the decks without shoes or socks). Look at the picture above and you will notice straight away that I’m picky. Extremely picky. So it’s going to be a daunting task for M-Project to get a mix extremely right? Well, not really, he’s like King Midas, everything he touches turns into Gold. Like this mix.

As I said you can find a few of the records in this mix on his latest album (which you can read more about here). I urge you to get that album. But if you are unsure, check out this mix, and let this mix persuade you. It won’t let you down!

10. Scott Brown & M-Project – Dizzy

OK, yet another amazing mix by Japanese finest Powerstomp/UK Hardcore producer. You can tell he’s been a busy bee, and he’s evolving. His music style is slowely getting better and better, like wine. Wine only gets better after putting it away for years. Thankfully that’s not necessary in this particular case, but I like the way he’s going. More professional and more mature UK Hardcore.

There’s a lot of good quality tunes in there, and the one I like from his album was ‘Final Form’. Well, I need to correct myself, the one I really, really like, is ‘Just Be Mine’. These vocals are so extremely catchy, they will stick in your head for days! Or even ‘Checkin’ Da Cutz’, also an amazing record.

Still not a 100% sure about ‘Starchild’. I’m an oldschool Dune fan, from when the Happy Hardcore tunes dominated the charts, and still need to get used to his new direction. Don’t feel the love this record has been receiving.

All in all, a wonderful mix. Quality mix, 22 minutes long, and 10 records thrown right in your face. M-Project is busy getting us all hyped up, and there’s a good reason for that: M-Project is awesome! Is there nothing this man can do that turns awesome in a split second?

I still want to know the man behind the mask. He’s still UK Hardcore’s biggest mystery.

More Information: Darren Styles – Insomniac Interview

On the 12th of August there will be an event taking place somewhere in America. The event is called ‘PROJECT:Z’, and the line-up is big: Borgore, The Prototypes, Black Sun Empire, DJ Isaac, D-Block & S-Te-Fan, Endymion, The Prophet, Tatanka, and many more. One name stands out, because I do love the man’s music and he’s probably the biggest name in the UK Hardcore scene: Darren Styles. If you haven’t got anything to do on the 12th, make sure you get tickets right now (if they are still available) and get your arse down to the NOS Events Center. That’s where the party is going to be.

Last year it was Gammer who made a promo mix for their 2016 version of PROJECT:Z, and this year it’s Darren Styles. Two of the biggest names coming out of the scene, and if you are interested in a bit more, I would urge you to not only listen to this mix, but also read the interview attached to it on Insomniac’s own page. You know it makes sense. Who doesn’t want some insight information coming from the man himself. You could multitask: listen to the mix and read the interview. According to the writer of the interview, this mix will break necks. Never heard that phrase before, but I reckon it’s a good thing.

Yes, this is a promo mix, and it will get you all excited to see the legend Darren Styles. It’s something you want to hear on this dreadful and boring Sunday morning. Already reached the 1st position in the Hard Dance chart and 3rd position in the Hardcore chart, this was only uploaded a day ago, and already people are going mad about this. Check out the tracklist!

tracklist

01. Darren Styles, Dougal & Gammer – Party Don’t Stop
02. Styles & Breeze vs Coldplay – You’re My Angel vs Viva La Vida
03. Stonebank feat Whizzkid – Flip This Rave
04. Darren Styles – The Dragon
05. Tweekacore x Darren Styles – Party Starter
06. Carnage x Breaux – The End (Festival Trap Mix)(Gammer Flip) 
07. Gareth Emery & Standerwick feat Hallene – Saving Light (Hixxy Mix) 
08. Audiotricz – United As One (Zero Hero Mix) 
09. Skrillex & Habstrakt – Chicken Soup (Callum Higby & WLSXN Flip) 
10. Gammer – Beam Of Light
11. Callum Higby – Get Loud
12. Crisis Era – Jump Up
13. Gammer – ID
14. Darren Styles – Us Against The World

A very big mix. The tracklist is a work of art. Some old tracks, some new. But all in all a fairly interesting mix. And it also contains the weirdest trackname of 2017: who names their track ‘Chicken Soup’? Well, it’s 2017, anything can happen, and it does. But chicken soup, I never think in a million years someone would call their track after this.

Anyway, the mix. I’ll keep it short and sweet: it’s the usual Darren Styles mix. Tight, dope, and really interesting. This will get the ravers all over the world exciting and most of all: it will get everyone of their chairs/sofas and everyone will start dancing in the living room, or wherever they are. It’s 9 o’clock on a Sunday and I’m dancing like a fruit cake in my living room.

Darren has selected quite a few dancefloor smashers, including his own ‘Us Against The World’. He knows how to produce anthems for a generation, and this year is probably the biggest in his life. To me this mix is really good, but sadly it’s not a Darren Styles track which made me dance the most, it’s a track by Crisis Era, and the track is called ‘Jump Up’. Sweet Lord, this track is sick! Don’t know what style that is, but it’s really ace. Dark and really unusual. I like that

Make sure you read the interview, listen to this mix, and get tickets for PROJECT:Z. You know it makes sense. You’ll get to see not only Darren Styles, but a whole lot of amazing acts. Worth your time, don’t you agree?

When you are a blogger, you do get mixes sent to you. Every so often you’ve got to say ‘no’ to a mix, because it’s so bad, you feel embarrassed to share it with anyone. But sometimes you get sent something unusual, you just simply can’t say no to it. This happened when the Yorkshire Ripper contacted me, and no, I’m not talking about the serial killer. I would be scared stiff if he contacted me, because there’s no reason why he should contact me. I’m talking about the DJ, whos mix I’ve recently reviewed. I think it was the 90s Hardcore mix. Correct me if I’m wrong.

What he did was a bit unique. It’s been done before, but I haven’t seen a mix recently made with 3 decks. The result is a mashup of 25 records within a 29 minute long mix. And the reason for doing it this way? Don’t know, it’s irrelevant. Let’s talk about the music, shall we?

He crammed in as much records as he could, and the result is a mega mashup of fine records by Stonebank, Reflux, Nuton, Callum Higby, Klubfiller, Mob, and more. And it’s also for free! Yes, you can download this from Soundcloud, and play it out loud wherever you want to. Even when you want to make sweet love to your other half.

25. Major Lazer & Bad Royale – My Number (Callum Higby Edit) 

See, I told you that this tracklist was going to be amazing, didn’t I? Oh, I didn’t. Well, it’s amazing, look at the tracks that Yorkshire Ripper has selected for this mix. They all look absolutely beautiful! And as I said, this is a mashup mix, so you jump from one record to the next in seconds, and the actual track might only be played a minute or two.

It does contain so many great records, but the one that still stands out is ‘Way Back Home’. That’s still my favourite record, maybe of all time. I love the vocals (is that Sia?), and the whole build up is just perfect. The perfect record to play when you are on your way home after a day of hard labour. It will make the time you spend at home even better!

Yorkshire Ripper has made a really entertaining 3 decks mix. The result is a mix which is on fire from the first to the last second. There are a few moments where he’s too eager to mix into the next record, but hey, it’s not that bad.

Even though it’s just 29 minutes long, it’s been 12 amazing minutes. Can’t wait for the second instalment of this mix series. The first one was really good. Check it out now!

The Summer of 2017, it was a well deserved one day of extreme weather. It has happened, and now we can focus on the Winter. For the rest of the world the Summer time is about to start, and for our French ravers it’s time to get out and start raving. With a fine mix from Miguel Kore they will get through the Summer of 2017, and it will become a really good one. Hope you all have an amazing one, we’ll be shivering. But we’ll catch some of the sunshine via this mix. A Summer mix is exactly what we are needing right now.

Miguel Kore, I’ve seen his name before, but never knew he was French. And I never knew UK Hardcore/Happy Hardcore was alive and kicking in France. I always thought the French would like Frenchcore (hence the name), but they do like a bit of Happy Hardcore. And Miguel Kore pushes the sound forward in this huge country. To make sure that everyone in France has an epic Summer (and also everywhere on this big planet) he uploaded a fresh and uplifting mix a few days ago. Already reaching nearly 1000 plays, it’s time for it go up, way up the amount of plays. Happy Hardcore, or whatever you call it, should get a bigger platform. Let’s make it bigger around the world, and let the Summer of 2017 be the right time to do so.

The tracklist, well, he didn’t waste time. He uploaded it, and it’s packed with serious dancefloor smashers. Check it out!

01. Darren Styles & Re-Con – Lonely Planet

15. Darren Styles – Save Me (Ganar Edit) 

Wow, this French DJ knows exactly which tunes to pick to make a mix sound really good! Even though I can’t remember if I actually reviewed a mix by Miguel before, this new mix really suits my mood, and I reckon he’s one of France’s finest Happy Hardcore DJs. Just look at the tracklist, and disagree then? No, you can’t. This is really a good looking tracklist, and an added bonus is the fact that this is really good mixed together.

This contains a few dancefloor slammers, and most of them I’ve already heard before, but a few are new, and contenders for this year’s best record. ‘Mad World’ and ‘We Can Dance’ are both seriously epic tunes! One has got an EDM bits in it, and made much better, and the other is just epic. The vocals in both are amazing, and it’s a good choice by Miguel Kore, to add these in his mix.

There are 2 tracks I don’t like, one of them being a track with the world’s least talented ‘musician’, Lil Jon. What a useless ‘vocalist’, his voice is as annoying as hearing your boss at work defecating next to you in the cubicals. And ‘The Tribe World’, I just don’t feel it yet. Maybe I need to give this a few listens.

I will listen to this mix again and again. A very good and exciting mix by this French DJ. This should be on your iPod or whatever device you’ve got. Download this, burn this on a disc and play it in your car (or put it on a USB stick, whatever floats your boat). This is a very good mix. Thanks Miguel, for making the Summer of 2017 a bit more special!
