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….

How come I am always late? I keep on finding mixes a couple of years old, for old events which already took place. Damn, damn. For example, only a couple of days ago I found this mix done by F.NoIzE on Soundcloud, don’t know why I wasn’t warned about this mix back in 2016, before the event took place? Soundcloud does what it wants, and it doesn’t make any sense. Or maybe it’s my fault, for being too damn lazy. Whatever reason it is, at least I’m listening to his promo mix. Don’t get too excited for it, the event took place 1 year ago, and even this year’s edition took place. You could get excited for next year’s Kingsday?

F.NoIzE, isn’t he the one with that scary mask on? (quick Google search). Yes, he is. Don’t know much about him, but what I do know matters: he plays literally the roughest Hardcore money can buy. This ain’t melodic/euphoric Hardcore, this is the roughest, toughest, bloodiest, angriest Hardcore. Hence the mask. If he played less angry Hardcore, his mask would be a ‘Hello Kitty’ mask, wouldn’t it? Thankfully he’s not wearing that crap, otherwise I would have passed on this mix. I needed something rough this Sunday morning, and bingo, I found it!

22. The Vizitor & Aggressive – Hardcore Op Je Muil

Wow. If this isn’t your thing, I completely understand. You are not hard enough. This is only for the hardest motherf**kers out there. What I don’t understand is the fact that this mix (and mixes similar to this one) do not come with a warning. This is seriously hard. This will lead up to permanent brain damage.

Nearly 40k plays. People are digging the music he has selected. And they seem to love F.NoIze. Truth be told, I couldn’t listen to this for hours in a row, my ears would start to bleed. But maybe listen to the mix twice in a row, yep, that’s perfect for me.

The mix starts with an absolute banger, and ends with one rough track. And the tracks inbetween? Well, they build up to an aggressive end. The build up is good, the tracks are good, I’ve got no negative comments regarding this mix.

Best track? ‘Lord Of The Underground’. Why? Just listen to it, and you will understand.

Maybe F.NoIzE will play at Kingsday 2018? If so, you can get excited for that. Press play and let this mix dominate your Sunday, like it did mine.

Last year Dance2Eden hosted yet another succesfull edition of their well known party Ghosttown, and the response was good. People seemed to like it, but truth be told, with a killer line-up like they had, you can’t go wrong. Jones & Stephenson, Rob & MC Joe, G-Town Madness, Lady Dana, Darkraver, Re-Charge, Promo, Kasparov, Noize Suppressor and more. Sadly I missed it, but on Soundcloud you can find many livesets recorded during the evening. One mix I found wasn’t a liveset, but a promo mix by someone called DJ Sequence. Mmm, where do I recognise the name from?

Wasn’t he also on Partyflock? Sequence & Omnious? Am I correct, or totally wrong? Well, whoever it is, he made a promo mix for Ghosttown, containing the finest Hardcore tunes from 1993 til 2016. From nice and rough oldskool tunes to fresh and upbeat present day records. And the tracks he has selected are made by well established names such as Meagashira, Alien T, Nosferatu, TOA, Lenny Dee, Paul Elstak, Endymion, and more. But the one theme that emerged was the fact that he used so many DJ Promo records, I reckon he’s a fan boy. I’ve never seen this many records made by DJ Promo in a mix which wasn’t mixed by DJ Promo himself.

Anyway, no matter how you look at this, this isn’t a promo mix for Ghosttown anymore. The event already took place, so we are too late. This is a promo mix for Hardcore in general, and Sequence too!

37. Promo – Bass Power
38. Annihilator – I’ll Show You My Gun
39. Lockjaw – The Point
40. Lenny Dee – Forgotten Moments

Will you look at this tracklist. It’s a beast! It’s a monster! What a truly amazing amount of awesome records. Yes, do you see it too, that he really likes DJ Promo?

DJ Sequence has mixed this together beautifully, and this mix was exactly what I was searching for on this dreadful and miserable Saturday. Combining the past with the present. Oldskool vs Newskool. The result is a really good promo mix, and I reckon at least half of the ravers at Ghosttown went there because of Sequence’s mix.

Maybe I exaggerated it a bit. I think I did.

Anyway, the records are good. Which is my favourite record? I can’t pick. Really like ‘My Beating Drum’ by DJ Promo. The vocals are soul touchingly good!

The mix is tight, has got some small mixing/fading errors, but manageble. They wouldn’t ask you to play at Ghosttown if you were crap, eh?

DJ Sequence’s mix is right on the money. Loving the vibes, loving everything about it. Banging Hardcore, f**k yeah!

Yesterday I was on a quest to find a mix that I haven’t heard before, which contained tracks I haven’t heard also in a while. Immediately that led me to Soundcloud’s search bar, and I typed in ‘Thunderdome’. So many Thunderdome mixes and livesets, and sadly so many without a tracklist. The one I found also had no tracklist at first glance, but thankfully someone uploaded it onto LSDB.nl. And truth be told, this tracklist and this mix will blow your mind away. Unless you are too young to understand Hardcore music from the 90s. If you think Angerfist is the hardest DJ/producer in the world, please re-educate yourself, or continue reading this review.

DJ Promo is a genius. A pioneer. Someone who has embraced Hardcore music since the 90s, and continues to spread his love and dedication for it all over the world. You can find hours of fun on his Soundcloud, sets by himself, focussed on his own productions or label, or mixes like the one you are about to listen to. A Thunderdome dedication mix, with only tracks in it you haven’t heard for a while. I’m talking Knightvision, Omar Santana, Zerox, Space Seed, Lenny Dee, Ferocious and more. And even for yours truly I found a few unknown tracks in this mix I haven’t heard before! That’s good about these mixes, you hear ‘well known’ records and also a couple of unknowns.

DJ Promo is a bad ass, in a good way. This mix is one you definately need to check out, if you love your ‘oldskool’ Hardcore.

tracklist

01. Jimmy-J & Cru-L-T – Six Days (Remix Records 005) 
02. DJ Hooligan – Love Time
03. Ferocious – Everybody Reach To The Top
04. Stingray & Sonicdriver – As Cold As Ice
05. The Reanimator – Bigger & Bolder (CPR Mix)

07. Public Domain – In The House (Buzz Fuzz Mix) 
08. Buzz Fuzz – Frequencies (Pino D’Ambini Tough Mix) 
09. Space Seed – Devastating
10. Scarface – I’ll Take You All To Fuckin’ Hell
11. Nosferatu – The Future

If this doesn’t tickle you in any way, you ain’t Hardcore. This is genesis, or however you spell it. The music they made nowadays stems from this, the early 90s stuff. Not the really early stuff where it was just about breaking your speakers into a billion pieces. The tracks Promo has selected, you don’t hear them very often sadly, but thankfully he’s as passionate about Hardcore as we are, so we should say thank you to him for sharing these mixes.

He starts off slowely, and builds up nicely with some rough and raw Hardcore tunes. As I said before, I know about 95% of these tracks, but never heard a few he has selected. Not even his own record ‘Ya Gangsta Music’. Big tune. But in all fairness, you can say whatever you like, one track stood out in this mix like no other, and the track is ‘Love Time’ by DJ Hooligan. Such a wicked anthem, a true 90s record. This record brings a huge smile on my face when I hear it.

Promo has picked awesome records, staying true to what Thunderdome meant to people. Bringing Hardcore to the masses, and making sure that everyone got that buzz only Hardcore could generate during the 90s. House and Techno were awesome, but nowhere near Hardcore. With this mix he shows us again how good he is (with tiny errors, but who am I to judge a legend), not only as a producer but also as a DJ.

How can we repay Promo? Well, support the artist, buy the music (ofcourse). But also, what you can do, is download this mix, and play it out loud time and time again!

Kids, listen and learn. This is what made Hardcore great. Take a journey back into time, and appreciate what they did for us back in the 90s. Because of people such as Promo Hardcore is still big, even bigger than before!
