Where will you be on the 21st of January 2017? If you have got plans, skip them and go to Vienna instead. Why? Well, Masters Of Hardcore is hosting an event there called ‘The Austrian Awakening’, and the line-up is absolutely insane: Angerfist, Miss K8, Destructive Tendencies, Tha Playah, Korsakoff, Mad Dog, Noize Suppressor, Day-Mar, Dyprax, Re-Style, Bodyshock, Tears Of Fury, Unexist, Meltdown, and hosted by MC Tha Watcher. Now that’s a seriously insane line-up, isn’t it? So let me ask you again, where will you be on the 21st of January?

Tears Of Fury were the first to upload a promo mix for this event, and it’s a big one. Even though I have never heard of Tears Of Fury before, I’m a follower from now on. The mix might be short, but you get the impression of what you will experience on the 21st. The mix packed with awesome tunes, slightly rougher than the usual stuff you hear, and that’s always a bonus. No soft stuff, only raw to the core- Hardcore. And also a few of Tears Of Fury’s own productions, so I get the chance to hear what he’s capable of as a producer.


01. Radio Killah – Gateway To The Peace
02. Tears Of Fury – Painkillah
03. N-Vitral – Ghettocore (DJ Mad Dog Remix) 
04. N-Vitral – Bass Face (Tha Playah Remix) 
05. Unexist feat The Void – Blaze It Up
06. Tears Of Fury – My Fury
07. DJ AniMe – Still Here
08. Crosfiyah – Gunfight
09. I:Gor – Straight Outta Kielce
10. Andy The Core & Sei2ure – Touch It
11. Tears Of Fury – Fayah

The tracklist is short, but you get the gist: this party will be mad, truly mad. Masters Of Hardcore are known for throwing excellent parties all over the world, and with them touching down in Austria they will demolish speakers, eardrums and more. I hope the people in Austria are ready for the ultimate Hardcore invasion!

This should persuade people. Sadly I won’t be able to go, but I wish I could. The line-up is absolutely sickening, this is pure Hardcore heaven, isn’t it? And Tears Of Fury’s mix is one that you could listen to on your way to the party. You’ve got only a few days left until the party/madness starts, so hurry up and get tickets.

Liking this mix a lot. Already bored of the Christmas stuff on the radio, I wanted to hear rougher and tougher music, and I found it. This beauty will be on repeat, I tell you. And Tears Of Fury has found yet another fan: me!

Best track? All of them!!!!!

You must be aware that the majority of reviews are mixes made by Angerfist (or his albums). I’m a fan, and as we would say in the Netherlands, ik schuif het niet onder stoelen of banken. If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry, it’s not something you might be interested in. What you might be interested in, is this mix I found only this morning. A new mix by the mighty Angerfist for TRAX, whatever that might be? An online magazine, a party organiser? If you speak and are able to read French, there’s a link underneath the mix on Soundcloud which takes you to the website, which is completely in French, and my French ain’t that good: oui, bonjour and baguette, that’s the only thing I know. What I’m guessing is that this website is also showcasing their love for Angerfist. Correct me if I’m wrong….

Maybe he made this mix to showcase his level of awesomeness? Maybe he made this mix because recently he reached a milestone on Facebook: a million fans! No other Hardcore DJ has ever achieved that. He’s Hardcore to the bone, literally. Or maybe he’s just promoting himself via this website? Again, my French is poor, but hopefully you are billingual and understand what’s written on the page.

The only thing I know is that Angerfist is a hero. A legend. A true Hardcore soldier. And with this mix he shows us yet again why he’s the best, and why he reached a million fans. With this tracklist he already reached 30k+ listens. Why not, it’s bloody Angerfist who mixed this monster mix!


01. N-Vitral & Angerfist – Fist In Your Face
02. Angerfist feat MC Nolz – Raise & Revolt
03. Noize Suppressor & Angerfist – Back With The Hard Street Shit
04. Miss K8 & Angerfist – Bogotá
05. Angerfist & Radical Redemption – Repercussion
06. Angerfist – Bad Attitude
07. Tha Playah & Angerfist feat MC Jeff – Just Like Me
08. Angerfist – Knock Knock
09. Angerfist & Radical Redemption – Order Of Hostility
10. Angerfist & Crossfiyah – Blast At You
11. Angerfist – Full Gentle Racket
12. Angerfist & Negative A – Wake Up Fucked Up

The mix is as good as you can imagine it. Every mix he has ever made is always a blessing. Maybe not his very first studio mix ever, but the ones you can find online always have been a blessing to our ears. They might be rough and raw, but that’s just the way we like it.

We all know these tracks, we all have embraced them as our ‘national anthems’, us, the ravers. Angerfist always seems to make tunes that touch your mind, body and soul like no other artist does. They might come close, but production wise there’s no one as good as him.

The tracks that took my breath away was actually the opening track. This opening is just the way I like it! A nice build up, darkness covering it.. and yet another track about fists. Maybe one day Angerfist will make a track about fisting itself?!

All jokes aside, this is yet another monster mix. No dull moment, carefully mixed, and exactly what we were searching for to get us through this boring weekend. You don’t need another mix, just play this one over and over again, and you can, because it’s downloadable!

Share the love, and congratulate the master of Hardcore, for reaching such a milestone! Congratulations Angerfist!

The next 3 names I’m writing down do not need an introduction: Masters Of Hardcore, DJ Promo and DJ Dana (Lady Dana for those who know her from the 90s). Last year Promo and Dana did a set together at Masters Of Hardcore – 20 Years Of Rebellion, and their set I’ve only found this morning. A set you all probably heard before, seeing as it has reached 13.6k+ listens. Sadly no download, but you can simply press play over and over again, and you will be a happier person after you’ve listened to this set (if you haven’t already).

They were asked to play at the Classics area, so what can you expect? A lot of raw and rough tracks from the end of the 90s to the early 00s. And seeing as they’ve been in the scene for quite a while, they know which tunes to select, to get the crowd going. And also, seeing as this is a live recording, you can hear the crowd loose themselves completely.

The tracklist was kindly provided by Hansolo, he always uploads tracklists, and for that I would like to say thank you.


01. Promo & DJ X-Ess – Vicious Circle
02. E-Man – Bass Machine
03. Placid K – Stealin’ Beats
04. Promo – I Come Correct
05. Endymion – Payback
06. DJ Niel – The Cave
07. EBE Company – Sub Seven (Catscan Remix) 
08. Promo – The Bad Guy
09. The Reactor & Raoul meets Impulse Factory – Hardcore Will Never Die
10. The Masochist – Killing Scum
11. Tschabos – Gib Mir Die Bass (Noch Korrekter!!)
12. DJ Nosferatu – Fuck The Prejudice
13. Tommyknocker – Demolition
14. G-Town Madness & The Viper – Here It Comes
15. DJ Adrien – No Competition
16. Promo & Catscan – Toch Welleuk
17. DJ Jappo & Lancinhouse – EXLXAXL (Neophyte & Evil Activities Remix) 
18. Project Omega – Prednison Attack
19. DJ Lancinhouse & The Stunned Guys – Atmosfera
20. Promo – Phreak Ya Speaka (N-Vitral Re-Phreak) 
21. Lady Dana – Ladies First

Look at these tracks! They take me back to those wonderful days! A lot of Promo tracks in here, would have been nicer if Dana added more of her own tracks in here, she made a couple too (not as many as Promo did, he’s a producing machine!).

The liveset is good! Loving the vibes it generates. Loving the records selected by Dana and Promo. And there are some seriously insane tracks in here, tracks I haven’t heard for a while: ‘No Competition’, ‘Demolition’, ‘The Cave’, ‘Fuck The Prejudice’. Boy, I do miss this sound a lot. Not saying that the present day Hardcore is bad, but it doesn’t compete with the late 90s/early 00s stuff. Fact.

Promo and Dana have made a wicked set, and the result of it can be heard on Soundcloud. I would urge you to listen to this mix, and let it take you to the next dimension. It made me loose my mind, and rave in the living room like never before. Come on, this set has got ‘No Competition’ in it! Can you sit still when you hear that record?

I don’t know what’s happening to me, but recently I’ve only been reviewing Hardcore mixes. It’s seems that I’m drawn towards the style I grew up with the most recently. Hardcore is in my vains and is the only thing that keeps my blood pumping. Thankfully Soundcloud is my dearest friend and has got hours of fun, Hardcore is well represented on it, and if you look closely you will find some hidden gems there, and one you are about to listen to, is absolutely filthy. Filthy? Yes, but in a good way. I’ve been listening to raw Hardcore too much, I wanted more melodic Hardcore and I found it. Filthy because it will cause eargasms to happen once you’ve pressed play. It will get messy, and I’m not talking about the football player.

On the 26th of March  Masters Of Hardcore took place again, and with a killer line-up I reckon it got sold out. Let me name a few, just a few: Nosferaty & Tha Playah, Miss K8, Furyan & Neophyte, Angerfist, Mad Dog & Noize Suppressor, Evil Activities & Outblast, DaY-már & Unexist, Destructive Tendencies & Partyraiser, and the list goes on and on, and this was only the main room! It’s unbelievable how they’ve changed from a small event to such a massive and much loved event in only a few years. They are game changers, and only had game changers on their line-up. Korsakoff was (and still is) the biggest female Hardcore DJ, and alongside her during Raiders Of Rampage was Re-Style. Not female, but also legendary! Combine these two people and the result? A massive liveset! If you were there, you experienced a wicked set. If you weren’t (like me), it’s time to catch up and listen to what we’ve missed.


01. Korsakoff & Re-Style – Wasted World
02. The Viper & Korsakoff – Temptation
03. Re-Style & Korsakoff – Skream
04. Re-Style – Get It Cracking (2013 Refix)  (ID Remix)
05. Razzle Dazzle Trax – Rattlebrain (Korsakoff Remix) 
06. Outblast & Korsakoff – Unleash The Beast (Angerfist Remix) 
07. Korsakoff & The Viper – Re-Bottled
08. Re-Style – Unit Of Measure
09. Re-Style & Korsakoff – Rebellion
10. ID – ID
11. Korsakoff – Somnia
12. Re-Style – Get It Crackin (Final 2013 Edit) 
13. Korsakoff & Furyan – A New Day
14. Korsakoff – Time (Bootleg)
15. Armin van Buuren – In And Out Of Love (Re-Style Bootleg)
16. Jebroer feat Stepherd, Skinto & Jayh – Banaan (Mark Junior & Anthology DJ Tool) 

The tracklist isn’t complete, if you know track number 10 it will be appreciated by those who already listened to this a million times. Already 12.4k+ plays in a month time,people really seems to love this mix, and the only thing we can do is agree, because this is really a dope mix!

A short mix, which is a pity, but they only played for 30 minutes.Wish this would go on for hours and hours. This is what I was after: proper melodic Hardcore tunes, happy and raw, filthy and sexy at the same time. The set is flawless, and the crowd really liked it (judging by the screams they produce). I really enjoyed it too, to be honest, and I think it’s time to share the madness if you haven’t listened to it already.

What’s the best track? Oh, difficult. I really like ‘Banaan’, because it came out of nowhere. Stomping stuff, a good track to finish your set with. I can’t pick another track which has caused so much damage on the dancefloors recently. But the other tracks are also very tasty to hear and absorb. Korsakoff and Re-Style, a good combination. More of this please, this is good!

A wonderful set, and you can download this from Soundcloud now. If you had a very stressful and rough Saturday night, chill with this mix. It will cure your hangover!
