Next week there’s going to be an event happening in de Lilse Bergen, and the event is called ‘Bass Events Outdoor’. You must have seen on Facebook many things passing your timeline regarding this event, and truth be told it’s going to be a good event. The line-up is something so delicious, let me name just a few. Just a few. Ready? B-Front, Code Black, Coone, Mark With A K, Miss K8, Pat B, Radical Redemption, Ruthless, and of course the duo who’s mix I’m about to review: Sub Zero Project.

I don’t know a lot about Sub Zero Project, but what I do know if that a couple of weeks ago I saw a video on Youtube, for a song called ‘The Project’. The video was quirky, but the tune absolutely banging! And of course I’ve seen their tracks before in other mixes, but truth be told I don’t know a single thing. They look very happy in the picture above. And they’ve got something on their faces. Oh, and they make Raw Hardstyle music. That’s all there is to mention. But the music they make is really, really good!

Let me show you the tracklist. It’s a beauty!

tracklist TCD

01. Isaac – Burn (Sub Zero Project Remix) 
02. Rob Mayth – Feel My Love (Devin Wild & Sub Zero Project Bootleg) 
03. Audiotricz – Let There Be Light
04. Da Tweekaz & Sub Zero Project – DRKNSS
05. Brooklyn Bounce – Club Bizarre (Headhunterz & Noisecontrollers Remix/Sub Zero Project Edit) 
06. Sub Sonik & MC Villain – The One
07. Bro Safari – Follow (Sub Zero Project Remix) 
08. Devin Wild – Let’s Get Drunk
09. D-Sturb feat Emese – Legacy
10. Chain Reaction – The Record Breaking
11. Frontliner – Warphole

A short but exciting tracklist. A few of their own productions, and one timeless classic in there. Can you figure out which one that is? It ain’t hard to figure it out which record is one timeless classic.

It’s ‘Warphole’. Duh. That was a walk in the park.

Anyway, they’ve made this promo mix, to get everyone ready for next week. And within only a handful of days it’s been played over 2000 times. Well, that’s mainly my fault, I kept playing this over and over. It’s a very interesting mix. It’s got a few seriously insane records, like the remix of ‘Club Bizarre’, ‘Let There Be Light’, ‘The Record Breaking’, but the one record that made me bounce/rave the hardest is ‘Feel My Love’. Don’t know what the male voice is saying, but I don’t care (ring ding ding, kick that shit to the left?).

A nice promo mix, and if this doesn’t get everyone excited, nothing will. Worth checking out, this mix. I can’t find anything wrong with this mix. Even the remixed version of ‘Club Bizarre’ puts a smile on my face, and normally I’m not a fan of remakes of 90s classics, but this one worked well.

Go and see Sub Zero Project. Raise your hands way up in the air and let yourself go. You’ve got 7 days to get everything sorted. This is an event you don’t want to miss.

More Information: Darren Styles / Tweekacore – Facebook Fanpage

This is a set many have talked about before it took place. It’s one of the biggest moments in the UK Hardcore scene. To actually make it extremely big, there’s no other place to make it big than the Netherlands, and to play at the biggest event there is, has got to be the dopest thing that has happened to Darren Styles! He’s played all over the world, but to finally get acknowledge for his skills as a producer and a DJ in the Netherlands, that’s something we’ve all been dreaming off. To finally get UK Hardcore global on a big scale, that’s just the dream.

So this year he was asked to play alongside Tweekacore at Defqon.1, and the set can now be found on Soundcloud. Videos did emerge, but we are all Soundcloud fans. And for those who are cheapskates (mainly Dutch people, we like things for free), it’s now downloadable. And yes, for free. You get an hour of their set, with a lot of awesome UK Hardcore and Happy Hardcore and Hardstyle, from probably the best event ever.

It was only uploaded a couple of days ago, and already it had 8.800+ plays! That’s amazing. And people are loving it a lot. And it does have a tracklist, does it get any better?

tracklist TCD

01. Tweekacore Intro 
02. Paul Elstak – Luv U More (Tweekacore x Gammer Flip) 
03. Darren Styles & Re-Con feat Matthew Steeper – Rest Of Your Life
04. Da Tweekaz – Wodka (Tweekacore Flip) 
05. Audiotricz – United As One (Zero Hero Remix) 
06. Eiffel 65 – Blue (Team Tweekacore Mix) 
07. Darren Styles – Come Running (2017 Edit) 
08. Tweekacore – Ready 4 The Tweekend
09. Sander Van Doorn, Martin Garrix, DVBBS – Gold Skies (Darren Styles & Dougal Remix) 
10. Tweekacore & Darren Styles – Partystarter (160 Mix)

15. Darren Styles – Us Against The World
16. Da Tweekaz – Break The Hewwego (Darren Styles x DT Mash) 
17. Darren Styles, Dougal & Gammer – Party Don’t Stop (170 Mix) 
18. Marshmello – Alone (Gammer Flip) 
19. Darren Styles & Gammer – You & I (2017 Edit) 
20. Da Tweekaz – Little Red Riding Hood (Tweekacore DQ17 Edit) 

The tracklist looks good, really good. A lot of Darren Styles stuff in here, and it always makes me smile. This man knows exactly how to make good music, and the result is astonishing. His tunes are all known around the world, and even at Defqon.1 the crowd are singing out loud to his tunes. This is such a confident booster for Darren, but it underlines what he does well: make the greatest tunes.

A lot of Darren and Tweekaz tunes in here. I’m liking the Darren Styles stuff, that comes without saying. But there are a few track so quirky, so bouncy, too happy for my liking. Like ‘Wodka’. Sorry to say this, but what a horrible track. The same with ‘Frozen’. Not a fan of Da Tweekaz a lot, sadly. The set I’ve reviewed previously also mentioned the cheesy track, and I’m not a fan of it at all. They are dreadful. I know they could be nice to listen to when you are halfway to the moon, but they aren’t quality.

Another thing that annoyed me. They should literally take away the microphone. Why ruin a set with you shouting down the microphone? Even the singer for ‘Partystarter’ couldn’t stay in line with the sung she sang. Nope, microphones should be banned.

The best record? Well, it has to be a Darren Styles track. ‘The Dragon’ is really, really good!

It’s good to hear and see that Defqon.1 has embraced Darren Styles. It was a nice B2B, but next year he needs his own set. Not let it be ruined by the dodgy cheesy tracks or someone talking bullsh*t through the microphone.

Sadly I couldn’t give it more. Too many factors make this set less interesting. Seriously, next year it needs to be Darren on hiw own. He deserves it! This was a step up. Q-Dance, make him a headliner!

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.

Before anyone starts mentioning the fact that I haven’t put the download details down, let me just say that it didn’t work for me. I’ve got internet issues, so I tried downloading, but it didn’t work. Network issues grrr. Anyway, you are getting excited now, knowing that you can download this mix by the legendary Cally.

21 days ago he uploaded a mix, showcasing his producing skills, and it’s packed with unreleased anthems and edits, which are being released throughout the year. And it was also for the launch of a radio show called ‘Hijacked’, presented by D GROVE. But what can we expect? Well, a short mix with 9 tracks, written/cowritten or remixed by Cally, and the beats, basses and melodies will come flying at you through your speakers.

Cally, does he really need an introduction? I don’t think so. If you want to know more, let your friend Google help you. Just typ in ‘Cally’ and you will find all the information you need: when he started DJing, where he has been, his PIN code, the size of his pants, everything. Google can be amazing (but the last two are probably not on there, I reckon?).

Let me show you the tracklist. And it’s a big one!

tracklist TCD

01. Cally & Steve Hill feat MC Shocker – RVRS BASS In The HDUK
02. Cally – Zenith
03. B.R.K. – Dance To The House (Cally Remix) 
04. Second Element – Give Me Your Love (Hatom Remix) (Cally Edit) 
05. Cally, Steve Hill & MKN – Music Is The Answer
06. Cally & Riot – Out Here Alone
07. Cally & Juice and Brain M vs MC Bunn feat MC Shocker – Bionic Grand Finale Anthem (Original Mix) 
08. Hardwell – Apollo (Noisecontrollers Remix) (Cally & Malfunction Edit) 
09. Da Tweekaz – Hewwego (Darren Styles Remix) (Cally Edit) 

A short but very intoxicating tracklist. This mix contains only 9 tracks, but they are all exciting. As he put it on Soundcloud, many are unreleased, or will be released soon. So exclusives are in this mix. Don’t know which ones will be released and which ones aren’t. That’s up to you to find out, eh?

The mix is focussed on the Hardstyle side of music, but the kind of style he makes, isn’t 100% Hardstyle. It’s got influences from other styles, mainly Hard House. Hard House, obviously the UK side of it. It’s a nice combination, a nice flow. But it’s a more gentle form of Hardstyle.

What Cally has given us, is a short mix, but a truly exciting mix. A mix that will go down well this weekend, if you put your speakers on maximum, and make sure that the neighbourhood hears it too. Your neighbours will thank you. I reckon this weekend is the perfect weekend to let the world know what kind of music you have embraced.

Best record in this mix? Well, there are two: ‘Music Is The Answer’, and ‘Out Here Alone’. Can’t beat these.

I might try later to get this mix downloaded from his website, but for me now it’s still not working. But until the moment I’ve got this mix in my possession, I will keep on playing it over and over again. Thanks Soundcloud and Cally, for making this mix available.

A big mix gets a big score:
