In April most of the Dutch culture will seize to excist. No clog wearing people, no cheese eating, no fingers in dikes (pun intented) or living in windmills, we are embracing our true colours. As many of you lot know, the Dutch are originators when it comes to Hardcore music, and from there it took over the world, and today it’s been listened to by millions. From a cult following to mass following: Hardcore isn’t just an underground thing anymore. Hardshock Festival is there for those who have embraced the culture, and want to have one amazing experience. So on the 15th of April, be sure that you are at Almere Strand.

Penta is going to be there. He’s rocking the Voltage area,  And as you know, I’m a huge fan of Penta. You must have seen Penta’s interview last year? Click the link to read it, and read the interesting interview. Anyway, let’s talk about Hardshock and the mix. He’s made a promo mix for you all to get excited, and basically for you to pick the area to go to. It’s the Voltage area. Yes, I’ve said it twice now, but you know it makes sense. The mix contains the finest and roughest tracks money can buy. And yes, they’ve been carefully mixed by Penta. What else do you need?

02. Tripped feat [KRTM] – Fucking Z%tsu

16. Satan – Meat
17. Tripped – Motherf%cking Ninja (Jimmy’s Motherfucking Intermezzo) 
18. [KRTM] – George & Jimmy.gif

Wow! Penta’s on a roll! I knew he was making tracks, but he’s on fire now. Maybe an album will be released in the future, if he’s got enough material? I hope he does, because if he does, I’ll be the first to buy it (if he’s already released an album, I’m a shite fan basically for not knowing).

The mix is not for the soft minded people, who want to save the world by listening to Hippy music and snorting washing powder. Get over yourself, who uses powder? It’s tablets nowadays, and it’s hard to snort them up your nose. Anyhow, you ain’t going to like this if you think that Tiesto plays hard music, or think that Justin Bieber is God. The true God is the Wizard, and if you are a die hard fan, you know what I mean.

The mix is tight. The tracks seriously insane. I’m digging this mix a lot. Penta can’t stop making awesome mixes, if truth be told. He’s the one you need to follow, as I said in the interview. Penta brings us Hardcore like never before, and yet I can sense influences from different artists, such as Promo. Which is a good thing. But the end result is unique and refreshing, which leads up to an awesome mix.

If this doesn’t persuade you to go to Hardshock, you ain’t hard enough. I can’t go, wish I could, and shake this man’s hand. He’s a legend. Rough, raw, and fucking on the spot. Penta, put money on this kid, he’s the future.

Best record? ‘War Crimes’. Why? Just because. Listen to it and you will know why.

Ps. thanks Penta for making my ears bleed. This music has literally penetrated my ears, and made them bleed. I will send you the invoice for the purchase of medical things to stop the bleeding.

After finishing a review for another mix, I wanted to close Soundcloud, but something grabbed my attention! A new mix, so fresh it had no plays (yes, I was play number 1). A new mix for only those die-hard Hardcore fans, mixed by Miss K8. Now that’s something we don’t want to miss, is it? A brand new mix, showcasing her skills (which is technically not needed, because we all know how she demolishes stages all over the world), and also the fact that she closes the mainstage at this year’s Reverze.

If you were wondering if you could still get tickets, you are too late, the event is completely sold out. VIP and normal tickets are gone. And you are going to miss one amazing event: the line-up consists of acts such as Coone, Adaro, Destructive Tendencies, Da Tweekaz, Korsakoff, Minus Militia, War Force, Wasted Penguinz, Zatox and more. And ofcourse Miss K8.

This mix is for those who are going, so you know what you can expect. It’s only 38 minutes long, but long enough to mess up your head, and get extremely excited for the 11th of March.


01. Menace II Society – Chronic Disorder (Sparta Mashup) 
02. Catscan – LA
03. Miss K8 & Angerfist – Bogotá

A short mix, but this will get you through the weekend. Only a few more weeks and then you can get smashed at Reverze. But just make sure you stay sane until the last set of the night, because you don’t want to miss Miss K8’s set.

This mix is so focussed on demolishing speakers, and those few braincells you’ve got left in your head. And it has worked: I’m completely numb now. This is so brutal, so furious, so hard… I’m loving it. I’m a die-hard fan of Hardcore, and I’m digging this mix a lot. I’m feeling gutted that I can’t make it to Reverze, and I hope everyone who’s got a ticket has a wonderful night.

Anything wrong with this promo mix? Nope, nothing at all. This is a good mix, a seriously good mix. And it’s got one of my favourite Hardcore tracks of this moment in it: ‘Killswitch’ by Nosferatu and Furyan. What a dope track.

Download this right now, and make this weekend a much livelier one. You need this mix. Miss K8 will get you through it all. A fantastic mix, but in all fairness: has Miss K8 ever disappointed us? Not that I can imagine…..

Thank God I didn’t close Soundcloud. I would have missed out on this wonderful mix!

The new year has started, and I never had the urge to listen to some Oldskool music like today. This year has been awesome so far, found a couple of amazing mixes/livesets, and one just stood out, because it was a set by the mighty DJ Sy, the ultimate scratch master. It’s an old but classic set, already listened to 41k+ times in the last 4 years! Seems I’m not the only one who wants to hear more Oldskool music, eh?

I know nothing about this period in UK Rave history, I wasn’t born here, and to be honest, back in 1993 I was only 9 years old, I still needed to get used to Dutch Gabber music. To me this was new and exciting, and I dedicated my time only to Gabber/Hardcore music, never had the time to listen to something else. I wish I was born in the UK, this was the decade of awesome music, as this set showcases. Not only do you get 36 amazing tracks all beautifully mixed on turntables (no CDJs ofcourse, it’s 1993 and that wasn’t even available!), you do get the scratch master doing his thing beautifully. And he’s not alone: MC Scratchmaster Techno was there to hype up the crowd! Two artists who know the skills when it comes to scratching (one with his mouth, the other with turntables). And the tracklist is rave-tastic!

02. Cool Hand Flex – Chill Out
03. Vibes & Wishdokta – Obsession (Music’s So Wonderful)

25. Nookie – Gonna Be Alright (Cloud 9 Remix)

34. Formula 7 – Funky Techno
35. Chaos & Julia Set – Atmosphere (Sub Base Field Mix) 
36. DJ Red Alert & Mike Slammer – Ganja Man

Damn, these names make me moist. Look at these names! Most of them do nothing anymore (well, not using these aliases). What happened to Sonz Of A Loop Da Loop Era (what’s in the name?), Nookie, Cool Hand Flex, Red Alert, Mike Slammer? And let’s not forget the MC Scratchmaster Techno? I’ve never seen his name before, and he has got the skills many MCs copied, but what happened to him?

This is really a dope liveset, and I do understand why it got so many plays on Soundcloud! It’s DJ Sy, the master of scratching. He does it so effortless, it blends in each and every track with ease. No one can scratch like him, it’s the truth. And if you think about it, he’s been in the scene for so long, this set was recorded back in 1993, which is 23 years ago! Amazing. And even back in 1993 he ruled the decks like no one else.

The set might have small and minute errors, but let’s not forget the artists back then used machinery/equipment, and had to put their heart and soul into it, and use their hands and ears. No button to make their lives easier. Pure mixing, like mixing was intended to be. And only Sy can prove to us all that he was king back in 1993.

Best record? Well, the set from the first to the last second is amazing. I hope you are going to like it, like I did. Sy and the MC have delivered an amazing set! A classic set, one we should cherrish.

Sometimes you want the music which comes through your speakers to be a bit rougher and tougher, and I think I’ve found a mix for those like their music just as hard as they are. This is not music for the faint-hearted, this is only for those who like the BPMs to come at them like a machine gun. Nope, not as fast as Terror, but close, very close. I’m talking about Industrial Hardcore, and this mix has been made by Igneon System, one of the leading figures within the Industrial Hardcore scene.

Igneon System does not need an introduction, and if you are wondering who’s behind the name, you should look the information up yourself. Go to his Facebook fanpage, and have a look yourself. We will be talking about the mix, how about that?

The mix is packed with tracks which are the best of 2016, according to Igneon System.This is obviously his own choice, these are the tracks of 2016 which made him think ‘hey, this one’s a slammer’. He could have made a mix full of his own tracks, but he didn’t. A nice mix filled with a nice variety of artists, such as I:Gor, DJIPE, Dolphin, Sei2ure and more. So you are warned prior to hearing this mix: this mix is dope. Tight. And most importantly: it’s brutal!


01. Deformer – Extreme Deformity (N-Vitral Remix) 
02. Somniac One – Forsaken
03. Tymon – Crunch Time
04. Dither – Bang
05. Sei2ure – Vibrator
06. The Outside Agency – Bulletproof
07. Nonexistent – Blender
08. Innominate & Sei2ure – Execute
09. Innominate – Build To Hurt
10. N-Vitral & Dither – Malframe Malfunction
11. Noize Suppressor – The Return Of Bike’s Drum (The Outside Agency Remix) 
12. Sei2ure – Massive On The Bass
13. I:Gor – Straight Outta Kielce
14. Igneon System – Blast
15. I:Gor – Twisted
16. Innominate – The Price You Pay
17. I:Gor – Zero Fucks Given
18. Satan – Nothing
19. Dolphin – Dynamo (Switch Technique Remix) 
20. N-Vitral & I:Gor – Crack Ya Neck

31. Xaturate & Miss Hysteria – Rotten
32. Igneon System – Dropkilla
33. Dolphin – Mimesis

Wow. Simply wow! How he managed to squeeze in 33 tracks in a 49 minute long mix I don’t know. But it’s impressive. And tight, very tight.

Igneon’s selection of tracks is really a good one. He’s got a point: these tracks are indeed good. He obviously had to chuck in a few of his own tracks, to balance it out. And the result is a very cool mix. It has to be said that this mix will lead up to brain damage, or any other injury you can get from listening to Industrial Hardcore. Don’t believe me? Look at the picture above this review (or the one used for this mix in the Soundcloud player): look at the amount of blood?! That’s what you can expect, and it will happen to you during this mix.

Can talk for hours about this mix, but I simply won’t. I will let the mix speak for itself, because it doesn’t need any credits: it’s already a 5 out of 5 stars. Carefully mixed, carefully selected tracks… what else do you need? Press play, what are you waiting for?

Igneon System’s mix. Not only the best tracks of 2016, but also a contender for ‘best mix of 2016′. It’s THAT good!
