For those who have missed it, there’s a new radioshow you should check out! It’s called ‘The Connection Radioshow’, and it’s aired on Touku FM every Friday at 5pm UTC, and the show is hosted by Seeds Of The Upcoming Infection. You might be wondering who this artist is, well, there’s a very long list on his Facebook page, but it’s basically this: he’s a Spanish producer who makes Mainstream Hardcore music, and who owns his own label ‘A Nation Of Distortion’ and co-owns ‘Decikore Records’. If you want to know what kind of music he makes, you should press play and hear his own stuff being played during his own radioshow. Worth your time, I would say.
You might not have heard of Touku FM before, but don’t worry, it’s a brand new internet radio station. According to their own website, it was founded in 2015 with a wealth of experience raging from online radio and media to anime inspired music and Japanese culture. Hence the name of the station being not English lol. And every Friday you can listen to SOTUI’s show. His first radioshow was uploaded onto Mixcloud a couple of days ago, and not only did SOTUI play a lot of his own stuff, he also had a guest DJ who goes by the name of Lissaardo. There isn’t much info regarding this DJ, so we’ve got to proceed to the next step, which is the tracklist.
This tracklist is something I don’t see very often. Most tracks were unknown to me, but that doesn’t make it less special. It’s worth your time, if you have an hour spare. The show starts with banging Hardcore, and halfway through it switches to Lissaardo’s set which is focussed on the happier side of Hardcore, and is filled with UK Hardcore/Happy Hardcore music.

An unusual tracklist, because I don’t see tracks like this is any of the other mixes I review. But still exciting! Always keep your ears open for new music, and when new music does arrive, don’t be afraid or hesitate to turn the volume up to the max.
The first bit was mixed by SOTUI a.k.a. Seeds Of The Upcoming Infection (what a name?!). It’s full on Hardcore, and I’m liking it a lot. Quite surprising to find an unknown producer amongst the thousands of ‘producers’ who can make me rave in my living room. It’s such a good mix, and I’m hooked to his style.
The second bit was mixed by Lissaardo, and it’s packed with funny and happy Hardcore tunes. My knowledge of anything abroad (besides the UK and NL) is limited, so during this mix some voices keep shouting stuff in a foreign language, I don’t have a clue what they are saying, but it’s funny. Sounds funny. I reckon it’s Japanese? If it isn’t, I do apologise.
I never knew there were still producers out there who make Happy Hardcore. It sounds amazing, but sometimes a bit cheesy lol. Too cheesy for me.
The SOTUI section is amazing, liking the vibes. The Lissaardo section is good too, but sometimes a bit too happy for my liking. Maybe I’m not a happy person,or maybe I need to listen to more of this kind of music to appreciate it more.
A good radioshow. Never heard of it before, but it’s never too late to learn, eh? If you are unable to listen to the show live on Fridays, you can check out SOTUI’s Mixcloud page, on which he uploads every episode of his radioshow. This is only the first, and many will follow. Liking ‘The Connection Radioshow’.
