Fatality, what a name for an event. I could understand all the other names, but Fatality is kind of brutal. But if we compare it to the music which is played there, it does make sense. This Hardstyle/Rawstyle event takes place in a couple of weeks time, and has got a killer line-up, one you could only dream of: Minus Militia, Radical Redemption, Warface, Adaro, Delete, Aggressive Act, E-Force, Rebelion, Deetox, Caine, and there are so many more going: it’s unbelievable, this line-up. And people are getting excited, really excited. There was one mix on my timeline, especially for this event, and it was made by Melvje. Read More
Decibel Outdoor is just around the corner, and people are getting hyped up about it. Sadly I’m not one of them, seeing as I’m not going, but the only thing that gets me excited regarding Decibel are the mixes before, and the livesets you can find afterwards. But for now let’s focus on what Soundcloud has to offer. Yesterday I found a rookie contest mix by someone called Martyna. A new name to me (hence why she entered the rookie contest) and for this competition she made a mix, 20 minutes long, with 12 records in it. But what kind of music, you might be wondering? Well, Hardstyle/Rawstyle. Read More
The week has finished, and I can tell you in all honesty that this week has been quite something else. Not only have I had the opportunity to finish at one place (work-wise) but also start immediately at another place. It’s been a journey, but so epic. The only negative (and I do mean it in the lightest way) is the journey. 1 hour in the morning, 2 1/2 hours in the afternoon. Well, I wanted to live in London. What a dreadful journey, but it’s for the better cause. Before I start to bore you all with shite information, let’s talk about the journey: every journey I’ve got my phone plugged into my car stereo, so I can listen to awesome music. And guess what? I found a neat mix by Infectious DJ’s! Read More
June has officially arrived, and for the true harder style lovers it means only one thing: the biggest event of the year will happen shortly: Defqon.1 ! And as usual, they’ve gone all the way to make this the best of the best. People are getting extremely excited for it, and judging the line-up it’s going to be absolutely epic. And I am wondering at this stage why in God’s name I am writing about Defqon.1, when literally EVERYONE knows this event and its reputation. Let’s talk about the mix you are about to listen to.
Last year Infectious DJ’s made a similar mix, a camping site mix. What does that mean? It means that everyone at the camping site, who want to continue getting their buzz just before they go to sleep, can have something to listen to. It was well receveid last year, especially by yours truly (cq. TCD). And they decided to do yet another camping mix, containing really awesome records. I had to obviously review this. And if you are liking the thought of a mix for the camping site, don’t worry: they will release three mixes, Euphoric, Raw, and Hardcore. But let’s focus on the Euphoric stuff right now!
01. Wildstylez – Children of Drums
02. Sylence – Zoning
03. Headhunterz & Wildstylez & Noisecontrollers – No One Can Stop Us Now
04. WW x Vini Vici – Chakra (Wildstylez Remix)
05. Psyko Punkz – Define God
06. Arkaine – Voice Of Desire
07. Coone – Defqon All Stars 2014
08. Frontliner – Lose The Style (2013 Remix)
09. Atmozfears – Reawakening
10. Deepshoutz – Elevation
11. Noisecontrollers – So High (Adele Mashup)
12. Max Enforcer – Lost In Paradise
13. D-Block & S-Te-Fan & Zatox – Madhouse
14. Headhunterz & Wildstylez – Project 1 (Sound Rush Remix)
15. Coone & Wildstylez – Burn It Down
16. TNT – Musick
17. 2 Best Enemies – Phases (TNT Remix)
18. D-Block & S-Te-Fan – Takin’ Off
19. Audiotricz – House Of Pain (DJ Tool)
20. Pysko Punkz – We Stay Up
21. Blademasterz – Masterblade (Shockerz Remix)
22. Zenith & Mauro Picotto – I’m Your Proximus (Zatox Bootleg)
Some old and some new, all crammed in an hour long mix. The boys have done it again. Or, as they would like to call it: the megamix. The campsite megamix. And they start off with a slammer, and throughout the hour, the awesome tracks are flying towards you. And as the title says, they are euphoric. So a lot of ‘hands in the air’ moments, and sing-a-long bits and bobs. Just my cup of tea.
Yeah, I do like raw, and also Hardcore, but today I wanted to hear something chirpy, something that cheered me up. The sun is shining, and the general gest is that everything is alright in life. So I needed music to suit my current mood. And this mix suited beautifully.
A few small cross fading errors, but nothing big. And a few tracks which are alright, but not really brilliant. Like ‘So High’. The Adele Mashup song. I like Adele, but really would be gutted to hear her voice at Defqon.1 , not really suitable for a dope event lol.
Ok, I’m getting really picky, but favouriting a record out of these records was difficult. But ‘No One Can Stop Us’ has to be my favourite. And also ‘Lost In Paradise’. Also a record which won’t leave your thick skull for hours…
A wonderful mix. And I hope everyone going to Defqon.1 will have a wonderful time, three days they will never, ever forget!

It’s Tuesday, which means that the weekend is coming closer and closer. Currently still sitting at home, trying to recover from surgery. So the only thing I can do, is relax and enjoy whatever Soundcloud has to offer. And it’s a lot. A fucking lot. Because of the simplistic reason: it’s focussed on music. So every music lover has to have a Soundcloud account, and once that’s set up, a world opens up for you. But for once I did not find this mix on Soundcloud, but via Facebook. This mix came to my attention because of me scrolling for hours on Facebook. And it has paid off.
Jason Payne has been a favourite for many years, but it’s been rather quiet around him. Don’t know why, but I don’t seem to find any mixes onlin (with tracklists). But don’t worry, I found one only yesterday, and it’s called ‘Helemaal Doorgetoeterd’. How in God’s name am I going to translate that into English? Let me see if Google can help me out: “All The Way Through”. That’s what it comes up with. Don’t think that’s the real translation, but never mind.
This podcast/mix series is focussed on everything Hard Dance related, and they’ve already had a few mixes by names such as Titan, CEAZAR, Retaliation, Thera, and more. Released on the first Friday of each month, they are focussed on bringing us the finest guestmix. And the mix contains the DJ’s favourite records. Records which connect to the DJ. And in this half hour long mix, DJ Jason Payne picked up his record collection, and went through, to find his favourite records. And to be brutally honest, he’s known for his Rawstyle love and dedication, but this mix contains the early Hardstyle records, and some really cool Hardcore records.
It’s time for you all to see the tracklist. It’s unusual, but oh so good!
01. Tuneboy – Sexbusters (Technoboy Remix)
02. DJ Zenith vs Avex – Scream
03. Marc et Claude – Loving You 2002 (DJ Isaac Remix)
04. Lowriders – Don’t Get Back
05. Zany vs Duro – Our Power
06. Headhunterz – Rock Civilization
07. Brennan Heart & Wildstylez – Reputation Game
08. The Masochist – Killing Scum (Promo Meets Shaolin Mix)
09. Amnesys – Elevation
10. Tha Playah & Neophyte – Still Nr. 1
11. Neophyte – Braincracking
12. G-Shock – Demons (Promo Remix)
13. Ophidian – Butterfly VIP
This is not the tracklist you would expect from Jason Payne, seeing as I only know him for his love for Rawstyle/Hardstyle. But he shows with this mix that’s he’s more than just a Rawstyle DJ, and that he loves a wide range of music.
In this mix you will find Jason Payne’s favourite records, and some of them I fully understand. Who doesn’t love ‘Rock Civilization’, ‘Killing Scum’, ‘Still Nr 1’ and ‘Braincracking’? Or the mighty ‘Butterfly VIP’? Is there anyone on Earth who dislikes Jason’s selection of tracks?
The mix (for me) is too damn short. It packes a punch, but it should have been longer than 30 minutes. But it’s a podcast series with mixes only 30 minutes long, so I won’t complain about that for too damn long.
Jason has picked a lot of wicked records, and one minor track (never a huge fan of Isaac’s Hardstyle stuff). But still, this keeps me going through the day, and I will keep this on repeat for as long as I can. Especially with ‘Still Nr. 1’. What a dancefloor smasher, no matter how old it is, it still has the power to unite a dancefloor, and create havoc at the same time!
A wonderful mix. And an interesting concept behind the podcast. I will surely check out the other mixes!

I was looking for a cool mix, and even though Soundcloud has changed the layout and how to find dope mixes, I found a new podcast for those who love Hardstyle a lot, presented by Bionicle. I’m not familiar with this name, so you have to excuse me if I don’t know a lot about the DJ who mixed this new podcast together. Oh, by the way, the podcast is called ‘Audio Overdose’, and that’s exactly what you are getting. An hour and seven minutes of everything Hardstyle related.
This podcast has got literally everything you need. Some oldschool records and some newskool records from well known and unknown names. And it’s a nice flow, it has to be said. A bit of everything into a nice podcast. Oh, there’s one thing I can say about the DJ, and that he’s a Dutchman. You can clearly hear it throughout the podcast. Well, nothing to be embarassed about, I’m Dutch too. And as we all know, the Dutch have invented great music!
Before we start yapping away about bollocks, let me show you the tracklist!
01. Headhunterz – Path Of The Hunter
02. Keltek – Through The Night
03. Alphaverb – Got It! (Noisecult Remix)
04, Psyko Punkz – Beyond Belief (Official Reverze 2012 Anthem)
05. Devin Wild – Anarchism
06. Cyber – MF Bass
07. Activator & Zatox – Freedom
08. Primeshock – Primetime
09. Noisecontrollers – The Source Code Of Creation (Official Qlimax 2014 Anthem)
10. Crypsis – Break Down Low
11. Zatox – To The Top
12. Prefix & Density – Time Travel
13. D-Sturb – On Your Mark
14. Atmozfears – Singularity
15. Clockartz – Welcome To My Rave
16. B-Freqz feat Jonjo – Rebirth (Official Rebirth 2018 Anthem)
17. Rejecta – Followed
18. 2Faced – Resonate
19. Mind Dimension – Once Again
20. Scot Project – W5 (DJ Thera Bootleg)
Bionicle has made a very interesting podcast, containing a lot of excellent tunes. And with this podcast he shows his dedication and enthusiasm for Hardstyle. And has it paid off? Well, the answer to that question is yes. A definate yes!
Everything Hardstyle related can be found in this mix. As I said before some old and some new records, and it pleases everyone. I had a blast listening to this podcast. The tracks are banging! No stupid jokey records, but only banging dancefloor anthems.
Maybe I am a bit biased, but I do love the first record he has selected. Who doesn’t love Headhunterz? Even though it’s kind of commercial, it still suits my liking, and keeps me moving a lot around. The living room is too damn small for me when I’m listening to this mix.
There are some small mixing issues, but nothing major. Something that won’t be of any issue.
Bionicle has made a very good podcast, and has made me interested in what he has to offer. I’m intrigued.
