After a nice and relaxing Hip Hop mix I was thrown into the deep. Back to the Rave music. Someone sent this mix to me, stating it should be reviewed, or at least listened to. Thanks for that. Now the beats, basses and melodies are pumping through my speakers. What kind of mix? A proper Hardcore mix by an artist called Goetia. What kind of Hardcore? The roughest and filthiest Hardcore around. Not the cheesy stuff, only the banging stuff. The stuff so hard, it makes the Devil wonder why he hasn’t come up with this style. This is filthy.

I’ve seen the name before, but I know nothing about Goetia. According to her Facebook fanpage, people call her the Queen Of Terror. She dominates the French Hardcore scene, and she pushes Hardcore all over the world as being one of the first Hardcore female DJ (well, they probably mean from France?). She turns out to be a very big name, playing at the biggest events all over the world, so this ain’t a one day DJ, but someone who has a long lasting impact. And to be frank, this mix has left an impact on me. Not many female DJs play the roughest records coming out of the scene. She does it. She probably says ‘bollocks to the mainstream’. And I’m liking the attitude.

The tracklist is a beauty. A few unknown ID’s in it. Let me show it to you!

10. Mind Erazer – Fckin Shit
11. SRB – Rocket Muppet
12. Spitnoise & Deathshock – Brahh (NSD Remix) 
14. NSD – Dope Aside
15. Goetia – ME, MYSELF & I

20. Goetia – ID
21. Goetia vs Angernoizer – ID
22. Kurwastyle Project – Snow In Summer
23. Goetia – Move On

A wonderful tracklist. The few ID-less records will be announced soon. So don’t send me messages asking what the track title is, because I don’t and wouldn’t know.

Goetia’s mix is rough. And very, very tough. She has picked so many rough records, my speakers are struggling. But is it worth it? Yes, it is. There are a lot of her own records in here, so if you haven’t heard of her before, you will know who she is from now on.

Tomorrow me and the missus are going on a holiday, and this goes on my media player. I’m taking this with me, and will play it out loud. Greece, be aware, this Hardcore fan will blow speakers up!

The mix kept me going. Even the quirky records like ‘FOREVERYOUNG’ and ‘Rocket Muppet’ made me smile, and bounce my head up and down. A few little errors, but manageble. Goetia’s mix is quite intoxicating. She keeps the BPMs way up, and doesn’t bow down to the conventional mainstream Hardcore. F**k that, only fast and ear destroying records.

What’s my favourite record? Oh, difficult. Can’t pick one. I simply can’t.

Put your speakers up to the max, and let the Queen take over your life for 47 minutes. Let yourself go.

This set was recorded nearly 2 years ago, where did the time go through really? 2 years, and only uploaded a year ago. It’s Faniac’s set at Hellraiser, which was held on Halloween 2015. Or should I say Helloween? Well, whatever you might call it, it was a Hellraiser event. I thought they would never be held again. But I was wrong. The line-up contained artists such as Art Of Fighters, Day-Már vs Re-Style. Catscan, Negative Audio, Vince, Cenobite Collective, Miss Groovy, Thundergods of Asgard, and many more. One of the sets I’ve found was DJ Faniac’s set, which was recorded in the second room.

Even though the majority of the people thought this event was just okay, I would have found it amazing. Hellraiser, the well established name, how can it go wrong? That’s the only event I never went to, but I regretted it now. Don’t know if they will hold another event in the future, let’s hope so.

As we’ve seen recently in another review, DJ Faniac loves his early Hardcore stuff. And at Hellraiser he played in the second area, which was hosted by Ouwe Stijl Is Botergeil, where they played the Early Hardcore stuff and the Hellraiser style music from 1992 to 1999. So you know exactly what you can expect. And the tracklist was also added, so this will be a treat for you all!

I love his passion and enthusiasm for the earlier stuff. Not many people are pushing it forward like he’s doing, and I’m really into the Early stuff lately. So to find this set is always a bonus to me, when it’s completely filled with the sounds from the early to the late 90s. This is my childhood in one liveset.

The tracklist looks good, even though I don’t know about 60% of these artists. Most of them are unknown to me. But it’s the music that should speak for itself, and you do get exactly what you were hoping for: nasty and rough Hardcore. The set itself is well mixed, and the tracks are good.

Which track is the best? Well, without a doubt it’s ‘Power’ by Global Split, remixed by The Prophet. This tune literally takes me back to the early sounds of The Prophet, before he started to make Hardstyle. I was a huge the Prophet fan, and I loved his take on Hardcore. So this remix is really my cup of tea.

There are a few records with guitars in them. Never been a fan of that. I can listen to them, but I would never make them my favourite records. There are a few in here: okay to listen to, but I would go ape if a whole set would be filled with guitarry bits and bobs.

Faniac’s set is really enjoyable. Worth a listen or two today. It’s Sunday, time to get the volume button turned way up, and enjoy the last hours of this weekend. Before you know it, you are back in your car, driving to work. For now go back to the early sounds of Hardcore!

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.

40. Partyraiser & Repix – Ode To The Godfather
41. Angernoizer & D-Fence – Afbreken
42. Dr. Peacock & Fant4stik – Tekkil4

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.

2017 is the year of Thunderdome. The return of this mighty event in October sparked all of this happiness about the legendary label and party, which started around 1991-1992. This year they celebrate their 25th anniversary, and it will be one of the biggest Thunderdome’s to date. Many have already paid their respect by uploading mixes, DJs such as Bass-D and Ruffneck, and now Casketkrusher made a mix, dedicated to the label which gave us so many great memories. So many CDs, so many events, so many wizzards on t-shirts (and bodies too). Thunderdome is a way of living.

Casketkrusher uploaded a nearly 2 hour long set, in which he picked shit loads of records, forgotten about mostly. He told me he was going to do such a mix a couple of months ago, and now it has finally happened. And when I say shit loads of records, I do mean it: 57! And you do get the finest of the finest tunes. Carefully picked by Casketkrusher, and smashed into a 2 hour long mix.

As I said earlier, 2017 is the year of Thunderdome. This won’t be the last mix appearing on Soundcloud, dedicated to it. Many will follow, and they will get everyone excited for one of the coolest events coming up. If you haven’t purchased tickets like I have, you are going to miss a wonderful event. And for once, I’m gutted. I don’t even know if they will do any more events after this one. They do a special thing at Mysteryland too, having their own Thunderdome area. Does that mean it’s back, or only a one-off because it’s been 25 years since they came into our lives and demolished our bedroom speakers?

Let me show you the tracklist, it’s a thing of beauty!

This is a gabber’s wet dream! Look at the tracklist. Not only the legendary records are in here, but also the other jewels from the 90s! I reckon Casketkrusher went through his collection and thought ‘fuck it, let’s play everything imaginable’. Which he did.

This was actually broadcasted live on Gabber.FM 2 days ago! So this is as fresh as a daisy! As usual, you hear the finest tunes and the freshest beats, and now you can find his set on Soundcloud. And it’s worth your time. It’s got so many great anthems in here, it’s proof why Thunderdome still has a lasting impact on all of us. It still makes us move, and each and every track is a killer anthem. Some forgotten, which we shouldn’t have. But thanks to mixes like this one it’s time for us to reminisce, and get back onto the oldskool train, and start to play those precious compilations again.

Wonderful selection of tracks. Too many to choose as a favourite, and I do mean it. And also too many forgotten beauties.This mix brings back memories I completely forgot about. A wonderful selection.

There are a few tracks I still don’t like after all these years. But that’s just my personal view. Don’t let my judgment cloud your perspective on this mix. Just press play, and let this mix be your guiding light through the weekend, up towards the actual event in October.

There are a few small errors, but come on: this was done live. Who makes a mix so flawless without one mistake?

Casketkrusher’s long awaited mix. I’ve been waiting for this, and it didn’t disappoint. Thanks man, for yet another cool mix!
