Many years ago I went to ILHB for the first time, and it left a good impression. A very good impression! I think it was actually the first ever ILHB, they have organised many after, but I was there at the first one. Seeing as it’s been many years since I last went, I became a very happy boy when a couple of weeks ago ILHB announced the return of it, and that the party would happen in October at The Qube Project. With a line-up so good, it will make you dribble like Homer J. Simpson! Lab4, BK, Proteus, Sharkey, Kevin Energy, Nick The Kid, Tim Samsara, K90, Rikki Arkitech, Fracus & Darwin, Ben Stevens, Greg Peaks, A.B & Thumpa, Dummy, and Laith. You must be a complete tool if you are going to miss this event!

They’ve been very busy, promoting this event. And for me it has worked: I will be going. Unless something bad happens, but for now everything looks good, and I will be raving on the 7th of October. To promote the event even more, Hard Beats Collective interviewed their main act: Lab4.  Not someone who knows a lot about Hard Dance, I have seen their names on compilations before, but never knew who was behind it. And still, after reading the interview, I am still unaware of who is behind Lab4, but I do know they make excellent music.

This might be a short promo mix, but if you want to hear Lab4 play a bit longer, you know what to do: get your tickets now!

tracklist

01. Intro 
02. Hard Force vs Soul T – Let The Bass Drop
w/ Lab4 & Unit 13 – Last Night
03. Lab4 – We Live We Love We Dance (Original Mix) 
04. Lab4 – Ground Zero
05. Opeum Audible Forensics – Encoded
06. Hardwell & Joey Dale feat Luciana – Arcadia (Psyko Punkz Remix) 
07. Lab4 – Fuck What You Heard (FaderHead Bootleg) 
08. Lab4 – Sensory Reload
09. Lab4 – Rave Revolucion

A short but exciting mix. This is what you need to hear on a Saturday morning! This will make your weekend a good one, even though the weather forecast is shite. Turn up the speakers, let them explode!

If you want to know a bit more about Lab4, I suggest you read the interview, download this mix whilst reading it, and buy your tickets! This event will sell out: if it’s as good as their first event, this will blow your mind into a million pieces! ILHB has always been on top of my list, I needed to visit their parties, but never could due to distance issues and work, but now I’m in the UK, I’ve got no excuse. And if you live in this majestic country, you haven’t got an excuse either. Unless there is an excuse, in which I apologise. But if you are a raver and you can come, what’s stopping you?

This mix has made the Dutchman very happy. I woke up the whole neighbourhood, and I couldn’t care less. Only a month and a couple of days left until this wonderful event. Are you going? Lab4 is there, for God’s sake! Do you need more? Well, I’ll be there, maybe that might persuade you?

A wonderful mix. Nothing to say which might sound negative. A spot on mix, right from the start. Lab4, whoever’s behind the masks, you are heroes.

Best track? ‘Sensory Reload’. Why? Listen to it and you will know why!

No Soundcloud or Mixcloud player: you can only get this mix if you read the interview. Underneath it there’s a link, and if you right-click it and save it, it’s all yours.

After browsing for yet another few hours, I found this mix, and I really wanted to share it with you all. Already the amount of listeners who pressed play are high, but there’s always room for more people to hear it. Adam M’s ‘Hard Mix 2014′, which you can find, as usual, on Soundcloud, but also on Mixcloud. 4000+ listeners, I reckon thousands of downloads, and many people sharing this mix already: it’s hard to miss this mix.

Hardhouse is still alive and kicking, and this mix shows us all why it’s still an amazing sound. It’s actually timeless, hasn’t changed much since it emerged out of nowhere. I remember the good ol’ days, when it first appeared on several albums/compilations, I was hooked from day one. The sound appealed to me a lot, and compilation after compilation joined my already huge CD collection. Don’t ask me why or how, but the Dutch music industry seemed to have lost interest in it, and it faded away, and so did my enthusiasm for it. Little did I know that the scene stayed alive and kicking, mainly in the United Kingdom. After the internet exploded upon us, I realised that the scene hadn’t faded away, and there were still many artists involved, keeping the sound alive. One of them is Adam M, who I’ve never heard of before, but it’s never too late to hallucinate, eh?

Even though I don’t know a single thing about the DJ, it’s all about the music, and the music is good. Anyone interested in a tracklist?

By just looking at the tracklist you won’t feel its greatness, but this mix is really great! I’m not familiar with many of the names, there are one or two I do know (Billy Bunter, Tony De Vit, and ofcourse Adam M), but the music speaks for itself.

The whole mix is pure genius. Never a dull moment, always grabs your throat, and doesn’t let you go. Powerful and very catchy stuff. Hardhouse at its finest. I do love his own productions in this mix, and he has added a few into it, which have made me bouncy and stomp extremely hard, I woke up the neighbours. My neighbours are not happy with me, but sod them, they should have moved when they had the chance!

This mix is interesting, and my ‘favourite Hardhouse DJ’ list has a new name on it: Adam M. Hopefully when I review a mix by this man in the near future I will have more information to share with you all (his birthplace, his pinnumber, his pants size etc), but for now we should let the music do the talking.

Share this with all your mates, and piss off your neighbours. It’s what Adam M wanted.
