I’m on a roll today, listening to some older tracks and mixes. And mixes focussed on the golden years of a style. This time I’m listening to a mix dedicated to Scantraxx and the year between 2002 and 2006. Can’t believe that some of these tunes are between 11 and 15 years old! I can remember the years like they were yesterday. The music I listened to back then was this, Hardstyle/Hard House music. This was what dominated my life, when my passion for Hardcore faded away. And one of the labels that kept on pushing this new style forward was (and still is) Scantraxx Recordz.

This time machine that I’ve climbed into is a pleasant one. First I went back to the early 90s with a nice mix by Bass-D, and now we go forward to the early 00s, and this mix has been made by Hardheadz. I recognise the name, but that is all. I do know nothing, if I’m brutally honest. My love for Hardstyle has faded away during the last couple of years, so I’ve missed out of a lot of new artists. Or it could be that Hardheards has been in the game for a while and I simply not paid attention.

Anyhow, let’s focus on the mix. 20 tracks in an hour and a half mix. Well, it’s strictly speaking NOT hour and a half, because the last 5 a 6 minutes were silent. But you get your money’s worth. 20 wicked tracks, released by Scantraxx or one of its sublabels. You will love the tracklist.

How about that, Hardheadz has a record in this mix! Shame I didn’t pay attention at all lol. Hardheadz must have been in the scene for quite a while. Let’s blow off the dust from my collection and see if the name appears on those old collections. If so, my brain is slightly loosing it.

Focus on the mix, and the mix is good! You get so many records thrown at you, and I’m liking them all. Can’t believe they were released more than 10 years ago! They dominated my youth and the scene. Who can forget those memorable tunes by The Prophet, like ‘Stereo Killa’, ‘Pump Dizz’, ‘Stampuhh!!’ and more. We all have to admit that we went loose when we heard ‘Stampuhh!!’ coming through the speakers. And yes, if you were Dutch this record did the most for you, because the majority of the lyrics are Dutch. But it didn’t matter: the music spoke for itself.

The mix is good. Taking me back to when Hardstyle and Hard House were cutting edge, and exciting. Nowadays it has became slightly bland and boring, but back in the early 2000s labels such as Scantraxx made sure the records were fresh and dancefloor ready.

Hardheadz’s mix is dope. Nothing to comment about. Sit back, relax, and let the beats, basses and melodies come through your speakers. And admit: 2002-2006 were the golden years, without a shadow of a doubt!

Finding new mixes is the thing I do every day. Sometimes I go through my timeline, and I find nothing interesting, but sometimes the only thing you really need to do is to let Soundcloud give you mixes, mixes you need to discover. And one of those mixes you are about to listen to. It’s a mix done by an unknown DJ to me, J0ahz, and it’s filled with Rawstyle records, designed to demolish your eardrums. And I know the most of you will like this a lot, seeing as it’s Sunday morning and the majority of you lot only listen to pop/commercial music coming through your speakers. Time to wake up the neighbourhood.

This DJ has got a main goal, to set up 30 minute mixes, and he tries to air them every month around the 10th. How about that, eh? Every month new mixes, filled with Rawstyle. And I like the fact that underneath the tracklist he wrote down that he likes to add music from unknown artists, supporting new music. That normally never happens, the only records selected are those who dominate the charts. For an ‘unknown’ artist to push other unknown artists forwards is a genuinely nice thing to do. Keeps the scene alive, eh?

Let’s see the tracks he has selected for this mix!

tracklist

01. Beatfreak – Pay Up
02. Killshot – Beastmode
03. The Pitcher – Hell Dog
04. D-Mind – Warrior
05. Outbreak – Survival (TWSTD Remix) 
06. Caine – Abomination
07. Mrotek – Substance Abuse
08. Regain – Roll It
09. Main Concern & Malice & Mind Dimension – Waiting 4
10. Bomfunk MC’s – Freestyler (Malice Bootleg) 

A good looking tracklist, but most of all: a good mix! This has turned this sunny and boring Sunday morning into one amazing Sunday. What were you expecting, to have a quiet Sunday? Hell no, that’s not going to happen. We are here to provide you with good music, and this mix will demolish you completely.

J0ahz’s mix is a good one. Really entertaining, and I couldn’t find anything wrong with it, mixing wise. A quality mix. For being an unknown DJ to me he has made a mix he should be proud of. The tracks are good, but not all of them. ‘Hell Dog’ is just too weird, and let’s not mention ‘Freestyler’. Don’t ruin a classic, which was shite back then, but this version just sounds odd.

It’s nearly the tenth of April, so we can expect a brand new mix, according to Soundcloud? Let this mix provide you enough music for the next couple of days. Sadly not downloadable, but you can still press play over and over again. Worth a listen!

It’s Saturday morning, and the weather is looking alright. Not really good good, but it’s getting there. You know what is looking good, and also sounding good? This promo mix I’m listening to. It’s for an event called ‘Madhouze – Dat Spant De Kroon’, which is held on the 26th of April, and you could go to this event, and I suggest that you find your way to this club, because the line-up is a beauty: Radical Redemption, Frequencerz, Warface, Atmozfears, D-Sturb, Bass-D, and the man who made this promo mix: Royal S.

Truth be told I’m new to the Freestyle scene and know not a lot of names, including Royal S. Never heard of this man before, so it’s not only a promo mix for this event, but a showcase mix to me. Freestyle is growing day by day, and you don’t need to say to me that it’s awesome, because I already know. I get this feeling which is equivalent to the feeling I got when I first discover Hardcore, and after that Hard House, and after that UK Hardcore, and the list goes on. Excitement is what I’m feeling. This new and growing style is grabbing me, and makes me want to lose control a lot.

Royal S’ mix is short, but the tracklist looks good. Have a look yourself!

tracklist

01. Vitellus – Life’s A Bitch
02. Dutch Movement – Da Pussy Syndrome Part 3
03. Potato & MC Tha Watcher – Beast Mode
04. Ricardo Moreno & Crude Intentions – Party People
05. Potato & Pat B – Good Times
06. Ransom – Let’s Roll
07. Mark With A K – Riot
08. Royal S – Sovjet
09. STTRBSTN feat Monkaholics & John Kho – Tiefus (Royal S & Crude Intentions Remix) 
10. Dutch Movement & Feest DJ Ruud – Turn The Tide
11. Royal S – Nightmare
12. Ricardo Moreno – Rock The House
13. Crude Intentions & Zany – Pray To God
14. Royal S – Violento
15. MYST – Before You Go
16. Deluzion – Aunt Rhody
17. Re-Style – Hypnosis
18. Mark With A K & Warface – Fear Of The Dark

I’m new to the scene, but these names do ring a bell. Ofcourse Mark With A K, Potato, Pat B, Re-Style (I thought he made only Hardcore?), and now Royal S. If you are a full on Freestyle freak you must adore this mix.

This promo mix has made this Saturday even better. Sadly I can’t go to this event, but if I were you , I would get your tickets and traintickets (or however you are going to this) and get really hyped up for this. The line-up is awesome, and Royal S’ promo mix is really the one that makes this event even better. If he plays like that in real life, boy you are in for a treat.

Happiness is what I felt after hearing this mix. No errors or anything I can mention which might reduce the mix’s score. This is really a good Freestyle mix, I’m digging it. I’m also liking Royal S’ own records. A good showcase mix.

Check this one right now, it’s worth your time! And have you purchased your tickets yet? You should, you seriously should!

The internet is filled with billions of hours of music, splendid music. And it takes a while to actually find music you were looking for. For example: I was looking for some early Hardstyle/Hard House tunes, and by accident I came across this liveset by Scot Project (it’s not written well on Soundcloud nor on the flyer, it’s only with one ‘t’). This set was recorded at HardClassics On The Beach, on the 11th of July 2015. The line-up was good: Pavo, Scot Project, DHHD, Deepack, Luna, Daniele Mondello, Freestyle Maniacs, The Viper and more. With such a line-up the event must have been good, and according those who went (and rated the event on Partyflock), the event was very good!

One of those sets can be found on Soundcloud. Scot Project’s liveset. And you get what you were hoping for! For starters he played a few really oldskool classics, and after that he goes all in and plays the finest tunes you can get! Most of them being remixes by himself, but you can’t go wrong with him. Seriously, Scot Project has made so many great anthems, I prefer his tunes over any new Hardstyle/Hard Dance tracks. Come on, ‘L’ (I Want Your Love)…. can’t go wrong with that track.

The tracklist was kindly provided, and it’s a beauty. Call yourself a true Dance music lover? You will dig this a lot!

Sweet Lord, what a tracklist!!! Impressive tracks, Scot Project has picked most of his own remixes, but they are so f**king worth it! Look at the track, just look at them!

For crying out loud, why can’t they make music as good as these tunes? When I first fell in love with it, it must have been the early 2000s. And still they demolish my braincells. I love so many tracks in this mix, such as ‘The Second Trip’, ‘Cocaine’, ‘Cold Night’ (the drop is IMMENSE),’Listen To Me Mama’, but the one that does the most damage to my emotions is ‘FM2′. The one track I can’t remember, or maybe never heard of before.

There might be small errors in this set, but I forgive Scot Project. He makes up with a shitload of dancefloor smashers! When these tunes dominated the dance scene I was raving the night away, and hearing these tunes coming at me full blast! These tunes dominated my youth, and to this day they make me smile from ear to ear!

A wonderful, exciting, and all in all a beauty of a set! I should search for more Scot Project, I need to take a time machine trip at least once a day, those early days can not be beaten. Quality over quantity, and Scot Project was the man to go to, to make an excellent remix. This set is sublime!

No I’ve changed my mind about the best record. Sorry Scot, ‘Cold Night’ still has the drop that no one saw coming. Or the build up that no one has ever improved (because it’s ace). Yep, ‘Cold Night’. All day!
