It’s been a dreadful Wednesday. Before I go into details and bore the living sh*t out of everyone, let’s talk about music. I needed some early Hardcore, I was desperate for it. And my good old friend Soundcloud came to the rescue. So in a way this Wednesday wasn’t great, but got improved at the end. And the reason why it got better was the fact that the early Hardcore mix wasn’t focussed on the 90s, but the early Millennium stuff, from 2001 til 2005. And these years have been underrated for a while. They deserve the credit for keeping Hardcore interesting.
This DJ called DJ Ron made this mix 3 years ago, and it contains filthy anthems from the legendary names such as Hard Creation, Tha Playah, Art Of Fighters, Evil Activities, and more. I remember those years, because I discovered the mighty Masters of Hardcore collection, and from that moment on my Hardcore surge was never ending. The love was re-ignited, like it was ignited back in 1993-1994. And the music was good. Really good. Astonishingly good.
DJ Ron’s selection is quite good, and haven’t heard many for years! That’s because the compilations got f**ked due to the amount of scratches on them. I wish I had them digitally lol. But no worries, at least we’ve got mixes on Soundcloud like this one!

A very tasty looking tracklist! I haven’t heard many for ages! Which is obviously a shame, and I’m hanging my head in shame right now!
If I have to be honest, this kind of Hardcore still is my favourite. Yes, the early and mid and end 90s stuff is epic to the bone, but this early 00s stuff re-ignited my passion for Hardcore after the ‘death’ and commercialisation of Happy Hardcore. Not many understood my passion, but thankfully us die hard gabbers remained true to the core, and we made sure it stayed alive and kicking!
DJ Ron’s selection is really good! Even those annoying and catchy tunes are really enjoyable! Got to give him credit for these anthems. And it was difficult to pick a favourite record, but it has to be ‘Bombing Eardrumz’ by Stunned Guys, Paul and MC Ruffian. A true dancefloor smashers. I remember vividly stomping my feet on many dancefloors when this was hot!
It has moments throughout the mix where the mixing isn’t flawless, but let that not be a reason not to listen to this mix!
A very nice mix to listen to. 24 tracks in a very nice mix. Forgotten gems, that’s what they are!
