Remember I reviewed a mix for Defqon.1 a couple of weeks ago? I think it was a camping mix, a mix you could download and play whilst camping at Defqon.1? Remember that mix? Okay, you do. That mix was done by the Infectious DJ’s, and now one half of this duo has decided to do his own project aside of it, called ‘The Chainbreaker’. Now the Infectious DJ’s were new to me, so I couldn’t mention anything about them, but now this new project I literally know nothing about, only that the person behind it is one half of Infectious DJ’s. Well, let’s focus on the music, shall we?

I think it’s best to focus on the music. This rather new project is so new, it still has the wrap around it, and it still shines extremely bright. What this concept is about, is to play what doesn’t fit in the Infectious DJ’s playlist. Are you confused yet? It’s not that complicated at all. Two projects, focussed on bringing the music towards you. This half has decided to make his first mix, and it’s called ‘XTRA RAWFARE’. It’s packed with really interesting tunes by names such as E-Force, D-Sturb, Regain, Luminite and more.

Let’s check out the tracklist. If you are into Hardstyle and its sibling Rawstyle you are definately going to appreciate this tracklist. The Chainbreaker has picked really good anthems, and if you don’t believe me, look down to the tracklist now!

tracklist

01. D-Sturb – High Power
02. Two Sixty – Child’s Play
03. E-Force & Bass Chaserz – Attack
04. Raiden & E-Force – Beware
05. Regain – All In Darkness
06. D-Sturb & Emese – Legacy
07. Warface – Fake Ass Bitches
08. E-Force – The Dead Rap
09. X-Pander & Lowroller – Animal
10. War Force – Reloaded
11. War Force – Break Your Ankles
12. Luminite – Maccarena Deathmatch

It’s a short but really interesting mix. So this is the stuff Infectious DJ’s don’t play? Everyone should play this, because it’s awesome music. Untouchable music. Anthems for the future. This will still sound awesome in 100 years from now!

The might starts off with what is the greatest anthem I’ve heard in a while! Sweet Lord, this made me press repeat again and again! This is really uplifting and euphoric Hardstyle/Rawstyle. This is the music I was after. Hard, and yet beautiful at the same time. That is definately the greatest record in this mix, and a good starter of this first episode of XTRA RAWFARE.

Record after record the level of awesomeness stays high. I really liked this first instalment, and I reckon the Chainbreaker will keep on posting awesome mixes like this one for quite a while. Unless he makes a Justin Bieber dedication mix: if he does so, I will stop following him. But until then it’s the Chainbreaker all the way.

This was an epic first mix. And I’ve really enjoyed it. Can’t mention anything bad about it. Well, maybe the fact that it’s not downloadable, but that’s just a minor thing, isn’t it? Not something I should deduct points for.

Get this down you right now. Press play and make this Sunday the best one you’ve had in 2017. Wake up the neighbourhood, and let them know what kind of music you support!

Jason Payne is back! Oh, it’s been a while since I last heard something from Jason, let me check which set I’ve last heard from him and when that was: wow! It was back in 2016 (28th of March), and it was his set at Loudness in 2016. Can you believe it, a year without Jason Payne? When I first heard a set by this man, I knew he was going to be the future. Such a dedication for Rawstyle, he and also Rooler and Malice are the future of Rawstyle. To be fair, Jason Payne’s set was actually the reason I started listening to Rawstyle, so thank you sir, for enlightening my music knowledge!

This time it’s not a liveset, but a studio mix. A mix series. And this is the fourth instalment of his ‘Bring The Payne!’ mix series. As you would expect, it’s filled with the finest tunes money can buy, and it’s been carefully mixed together by the man himself. A nice mix series, and not only do you get 22 records crammed into an hour long mix, but also less room on your phone/computer: it’s a WAV file and it’s 592 MB big! So be aware that if you are going to download it onto your phone, to create some space for it. Get rid of a few porno films on your phone, you don’t need them anyway, you’ve got Pornhub.

You want to end this weekend on a high note? Well, technically this is not high, but more raw. Ok, let me rephrase that: want to end this weekend on a raw note? Check out this mix right now!

tracklist

01. Frequencerz – The Unknown
02. Enemy Contact – Spirit
03. Marco V – Godd (Adaro Remix) 
04. Jason Payne – One (Defqon.1 2017 Edit) 
05. D-Sturb feat Emese – Legacy
06. Apexx – Escape The System
07. Neroz – Ode To The Raver
08. Delete – The Power
09. Killshot – Who’s The Boss
10. Adaro & Jack Of Sound – Disruption
11. Rebelion – Watch What You Say
12. Donkey Rollers – Chaos (Radical Redemption Remix) 
13. Regain – Celebration (Dedicated Outdoor Anthem) 
14. Genox – Power
15. Stereotuners – Screaming

19. Luna & Hardcraft – Sickhead
20. Warface – FTP (E-Force Remix) 
21. Thyron – Murder Me
22. Jason Payne x Unkind – Punish

Now how’s that for a tracklist. That’s a wonderful tracklist. Jason has selected a shitload of awesome tracks. And with this fourth instalment he captures the strength and diversity of what the scene has to offer. The scene is growing at a fast pace, it’s an unstoppable force. A force to be reckoned with.

There are simply too many great anthems! From the first second to the last it’s one amazing ride, full of raw music we were waiting for. From the ‘lighter’ Rawstyle to the extreme brutal stuff, you can find it here. And when I say brutal, I mean brutal. Listen to ‘The Power’. How brutal is that record! That record reaches such a depth, it’s so dark, even the Devil would be scared to press play.

Which record is the best? ‘Watch What You Say’. I love the melodic bit. Raw, but stylish.

Jason, I promise you it won’t be another year before I hear something from you again. And I think everyone should do the same: follow him on Social Media, and make sure you get your dosis of Payne every week. Check his Facebook, his Soundcloud, his Mixcloud, I don’t care what you check, but you should check out this legend! This mix shows the level he’s at right now: the epic level!

Bring the Payne! Yes. A very succesful mix series. I’m going to check the others and share them with everyone, because we have to. They are epic!

The internet is such a wonderful place. It’s packed with music, and once you’ve set up an account on Soundcloud, you are entitled to listen to millions of hours of fun! Everything and anything is on there. Including Digital Punk’s set from 2 years ago, recorded at Supremacy. On the 26th of September in the Brabanthallen DJs such as Radical Redemption, Adaro, Ran-D, E-Force, Warface, Miss K8, Luna and more. And let’s not forget the DJ who’s set we are about to listen to: Digital Punk. A headline act who’s played all over the world at the biggest events. But how come I have never heard a set or mix made by him?

Well, I’ve already listened to many sets, and today a button (which is ‘ontdek’ in Dutch) pushed me towards this set. So I gave it a go. And I wasn’t disappointed. Like everyone at Supremacy, it was awesome! Yes, I read the review on Partyflock, and people were only mentioning good things. How can you have a bad time with a killer line-up, and Supremacy already has got a good reputation for being awesome. Put Digital Punk on the line-up and the event just gets better.

If you haven’t heard or seen the name ‘Digital Punk’ before, which strikes me as being odd because his tracks have appeared in so many mixes, let this set be your guide. It contains a lot of his own productions or remixes, so you won’t have a bad day today. You will love this set. And I think it’s time now for the tracklist, isn’t it?

tracklist

01. Intro Supremacy 
02. Digital Punk & MC Nolz – Supreme (Official Supremacy Anthem 2015) 
03. Digital Punk & Radical Redemption – Rivers Of Souls
04. B-Freqz – Psycho
05. B-Front & Digital Punk – For The Girls 2015
06. Ran-D & Digital Punk – Rebel To The Grave
07. Frequencerz & Warface – Uber Mash Up
08. Ran-D & Digital Punk – Survivors (E-Force Remix) 
09. Sub Zero Project vs Queen – We Will Rock Funky Fresh Beatz (Mash Up) 
10. Digital Punk & Warface – Unleash War

12. Outbreak & Kronos – Click Clack
13. Alpha2 & Jack Of Sound – Das Weite Land

15. Outbreak – Raw From The Heart
16. Requiem – Collateral Damage
17. Digital Punk, Radical Redemption & Crypsis – Blood, Sweat & Tears
18. Alpha2 – Hostile

Yes, it’s Saturday morning and I don’t care. I’m playing this set out loud, waking up the whole neighbourhood. They already know what I’m capable off (my speakers can destroy walls). They know I don’t listen to the conventional music, played on the radio. I listen to the roughest and toughest styles, and if they can’t handle it, they can move to another county.

This contained a few of his own productions, and they do sound extremely good! The people you can hear throughout the set know the words to every song he plays: whenever he fades the music to let the fans sing, they do sing. Sing so loud! They don’t need a microphone, their voices are so loud… blimey! That’s dedication for the music, isn’t it?

Digital Punk’s set is awesome, and 20.7k+ plays show how much people love his style. I do like it too. I’ve enjoyed the whole set. Maybe not the MC, he’s not an added bonus in this case, the music and the skills Digital Punk has as a DJ are beyond what this MC can do. Oh, and I’m not a fan of ‘We Will Rock Funky Fresh Beatz’. That track sounded just too wrong lol.

What’s the best track in this mix? ‘Das Weite Land’ by Alpha2 & Jack Of Sound. Just listen and witness its strength.

Let this set be your guidance throughout this weekend. Is it going to rain, or will the sunshine come back? Who cares, as long as you’ve paid your electricity bill you can turn on your PC, press the ‘on’ button on your speakerset, and turn it right up! Enjoy it like the thousands who witnessed him 2 years ago!

A couple of weeks ago I was all into Hardstyle/Rawstyle, and obviously Soundcloud presented me with mixes related to the ones I already listened to. One of them was a podcast by Future Of Hardstyle, and the mix was made by Syra. A nearly 2 hour long podcast, filled with the finest Hardstyle and Rawstyle records. If there’s a better day than today to listen to this mix, please mention it to me. But I think today is perfect: the weather is good, no rain, sunny, and it’s time to get the chairs in the garden. You can put your speakers in the garden, and have a Hardstyle-garden party. How about that?

I’ve never heard of this podcast series before, but it seems they are quite succesful, showcasing new talents/artists, giving them a platform on which they can show their skills. For their 30th instalment they asked Syra to make a very nice mix. And what a nice mix it turned out to be. 42 records, pure passion and dedication. She used well known names as Malice, Gunz For Hire, B-Front, Warface, Act Of Rage, Brennan Heart and more. Or as I like to put it: 2 hours of filth (and I mean it in a good way!).

Let’s see the tracks Syra has selected for this instalment!

tracklist

01. B-Front – The Paradox
02. Reloaded feat Snowflake – Don’t Be Afraid

40. Digital Mindz & Unresolved – This Can’t Be Real
41. Krowdexx – Deathmatch
42. Rooler – Extinguish’

Now that’s a tracklist! Wowser, that made me dribble like Homer J. Simpson seeing a doughnut! So many great tracks are in this mix, it’s bound to be a good one!

Syra, even though the name doesn’t ring a bell, has made a wicked mix! Showcasing her skills and love for everything Hardstyle/Rawstyle, and the end result is a wicked mix. I’ve not listened to other mixes by The Future Of Hardstyle, but if they are all as good as this one, I’m in for a treat this Summer. I can listen to mixes literally every day!

I do like Hardstyle, but seeing as I’m someone who like his music to be rough and raw, the Rawstyle tracks do a bit more to me. And it’s good that Syra made it a diverse mix, from Hardstyle to Rawstyle and backwards. It keeps the interest-level way up high. She’s not someone to make fun of, that’s for sure. She knows how to mix, and which records to select. She’s a speaker-killer!

I can’t mention anything bad at all. No, seriously, I can’t. And it’s hard to pick a favourite, because there are so many. I can’t pick, and I’m not even going to try. You should listen to this right now, put your speakers in the garden, and let the whole world know which music you live for.

A wicked mix. And I’m not lying! I want more mixes like this one!
