Only yesterday this was uploaded, and already it has reached around 5.000+ plays within 24 hours! How amazing is that? Well, if I’m honest, it’s a mix by two legends in the Dutch music industry: Paul Elstak and Panic. And now you are wondering what the mix is about? Well, it’s a promotion mix for what Paul Elstak does nowadays, pushing his ‘I Love Beatz’ forward, which is a freestyle concept of the man himself. And at this year’s Sunglow event they will push this concept forward, and to get everyone excited, they’ve uploaded a mix yesterday, time enough for you to get excited and ready for this event (which takes place on the 9th of September, and there are still tickets available).

The line-up looks really, really good, let me showcase a few: B-Front, Deetox, D-Fence, Rob & MC Joe, Miss K8, Ran-D, Regain, Ruffneck B2B DJ Rob, Sub Zero Project, and of course Paul Elstak. But he’s doing a set alongside JeBroer. If you are not Dutch and don’t know what this collaboration means, well… I reckon they made the anthem of 2017. “Kind Van De Duivel” is the anthem of 2017, without a shadow of a doubt. Many will dance the night away, whilst hearing this tune coming out of the speaker. It’s kind of different when you are not Dutch and don’t know what the lyrics are about, but it’s about the music, eh?

But let’s not forget DJ Panic, who also contributed to this mix. Together they made a very interesting mix. And this Freestyle sound is getting bigger, and better. I don’t know if this style is getting more populair around the world, I do know it’s very big in the Netherlands, but I’ve not heard it in the UK yet. Give it some time and it will.

In the meantime, get excited about this tracklist.

It might look like a very long tracklist, and the mix won’t fit your standard CDR, but the time flies by. Especially when the party mode is on. And that’s what Panic and Paul Elstak do best. Since the early 90s these legends have been pushing music forward, changing the landscape of Hardcore.

The line-up for this Sunglow event looks good, and this mixtape is also extremely interesting. You go from one extreem to the next, no bullshit, the party mode is on. A few ‘hands in the air’ moments, and sing along bits, which leads up to a very entertaining mix. I know you all will appreciate this mix.

There are so many great anthems in here, like ‘Like A Drum’, ‘Afbreken’, ‘Mashup 6.0’, ‘Kind Van De Duivel’, ‘Skum’, ‘Helium’, and the list goes on. But which record does the most for me? Well, ‘Uncle Fucker’. I love D-Fence’s no nonsense approach to Hardcore.

Paul Elstak and Panic, together for one mix. A dangerous mix. Some tracks might be too damn cheesy, and some are much better than the original. It’s worth listening to it again and again.

Miss Hysteria – After DanceValley Mix (2017)

Dance Valley took place, and many people are recovering from it. Only a handful are still on fire, and are still on a buzz, keeping the good memories alive. One of those people is Miss Hysteria. She uploaded a After DanceValley mix the other day, and it’s an amazing one. As one of the DJs playing there, she played in the area which was focussed on the Freestyle side of it all, and amongst some of the biggest names they must have destroyed the area (Kutski, Critical Mass, Kasparov, Royal S, Potato, and many more). Hardcore was well represented there, so for those who think Dance Valley is only focussed on boring music, you are wrong!

Dance Valley is one of the biggest events in the Netherlands, and it’s still one of the most known ones in the world. To play there must have been an experience, but for someone who’s signed to one of the biggest labels in the Hardcore scene (Enzyme Records) it must be a normal thing. She must have played at all the biggest events, even though her name didn’t really ring a bell at first (I was thinking of another female artist from the 90s who had a similar name, but that wasn’t her). But after hearing this ‘aftermix’ I’ve immediately pressed ‘like’ on her Facebook page, she gained a fan for life!

The mix is really tough! Not for the faint hearted people. This is rough, tough, and exactly what I wanted to hear.

tracklist TCD

01. T-Junction – Stomp
02. A Decade Of Enzyme Mashup
03. Cruel Intentions – Arroganza
04. Dither – Hammer Jammer
05. Ophidian – The Rain
06. Cruel Intentions vs Rapture – Stockholm Syndrome
07. Angerfist & N-Vitral – Fist In Your Face
08. Unexist – Extermination
09. AniMe – Liar
10. Miss Hysteria & Ophidian – Nothing Waits
11. Deadly Gins & Predator – The Surge
12. Noize Suppressor – Disco Balls
13. Neox – Bad Person
14. Dyprax & Norphine – Don’t Fear Death
15. Miss K8 – St8ment
16. Dither – Haka
17. Nosferatu & Tha Playah – Fade To Nothing
18. Synapse & Sei2ure – Ghetto Kung Fu

When a mix puts a huge smile on your face, that’s always a good thing. I found this mix today, and immediately pressed play (whilst being at work) and the small earplugs already started making a distorted noise. I think this mix blew them up completely. Damn, that’s a good sign!

She starts with an excellent ‘stomping’ record, and the records keep on coming. It’s an ongoing movement that makes your body move. You can not control yourself, you can not sit still. And it’s got a nicely diverse tracklist too. But what brings the biggest smile on my face? The mashup of Enzyme records’ greatest records! I am a huge Enzyme fan, I love the early stuff a lot. That’s when they showed me that this label is seriously insane, and brutal, and doesn’t take any prisoners.

If she played as rough as she did here, she was playing in the wrong area. She should have been playing at the Hardcore area. But I didn’t organise the event, so it ain’t up to me. But she definately brought the Hardcore to those who have already listened to this mix, and to those who are going to listen to it right now. It’s a slamming mix, one that will make you rave throughout your bedroom/living room/wherever you are.

Miss Hysteria, you’ve got a fan. This mix is blinding! And the tracks really good. A bit on the harder side, but that’s what the die-hard Hardcore fans want to hear. If they want to hear soft music, they can always play the radio and hear the regular top 40 shite. If they want to listen to well educated and made music, press play now!

More Information: DJ Pat B – Facebook Fanpage

DJ Pat B’s Soundcloud is a page of beauty, if you love Freestyle/Jumpstyle/Hardstyle. Not only will you find tracks on there, but also full length mixes, in which he goes absolutely bonkers. For example his latest BoomBastic episode: 29 tracks in a 59 minute long mix! How will you find the time to stand still and understand what just happened? But don’t think that only his Soundcloud page is awesome: you should check out his Facebook page, on which he shows us projects he’s been working on. They could be released, or not. It’s all one happy thing, isn’t it? Pat B has probably the most cheerful smile in the whole scene, and it’s addictive. How can you not like Pat B?

Only uploaded a day ago, but already 1.2k+ listens already. People seem to like what he does, and so does TCD (me). Pat B’s passion and dedication is addictive, and you can tell that he really, really loves the movement he leads. I don’t disagree, this Freestyle movement is really happy and cheerful. Sadly I haven’t been to an event where they play Freestyle music, and the next couple of weeks/months I won’t be able to anyway (surgery on my kidney), but when everything has healed I will go and see a Pat B set. I must. Have you seen his videos, where the crowd goes absolutely bonkers? That’s basically what happens in each and every video online.

He might lead the scene, but he’s still a normal dude. One that sometimes takes things seriously , but sometimes he just mucks about (like the track he made, in which he used The Darkraver’s vocals). Don’t know how, but Pat B’s success is a formula unknown to many. But I think the main thing is, to have fun. And I had fun listening to this mix!

01. Pat B, Francois & Nowaxx – MDMA 2017

28. JeBroer & Paul Elstak & Dr. Phunk – Kind Van De Duivel (Pat B’s 98 Oldskool Remix) 
29. The Beatkrusher feat MC Alee – Lekker Knetter

This is crazy. Really crazy. Such a wicked and cheerful mix, it can’t make you stop at all. Yes, it might be a bit cheesy from time to time, but not as cheesy as the previous review of Da Tweekaz’s Defqon.1 liveset I did an hour of so ago.

This is what Pat B does best. Cramn as many records in an hour long mix as he can, and make them diverse as possible. And if possible, even quirky. And he’s managed to do exactly that. ‘Love Popcorn In My Nose’? What a name. ‘Derp Motherfucker’? ‘Much Better Macarena’.? How does he come up with thos weird titles. And let’s not forget ‘Hands Up For Boobies’. You might like this record, unless you are not a booby man/woman, but a leg or arse fan.

It does go quirky from time to time, and sometimes it’s serious. The best record is ‘Warrior’. Love the vocals, love the track in general.

Which track isn’t my thing? Well, ‘Ring Of Fire’. That’s too cheesy for me. The original is already dull and makes me want to put MDMA in my butthole, but this version is even worst lol. It might be different when you hear it at a big event.

DJ Pat B made sure that we have an awesome weekend. Make sure you download this right now. This will make your weekend even better.

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….
