This weekend it’s happening, an event only for those who embrace Hardcore fully. Harmony Of Hardcore takes place in Erp/Veghel, and what can you expect? Hardcore, Industrial Hardcore, Darkcore, Terror and Oldskool (and more). If you look at the line-up, it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before! A full on Hardcore line-up, no mucking about, no nonsense. I actually got goosebumps when I looked at who is performing. And to get everyone excited for this event there’s a mix on Soundcloud by MindPumper, focussed on the Uptempo Hardcore, which will be played out loud at Harmony Of Hardcore.

This is MindPumper’s favourite Hardcore festival of the year, and because of that he made a nice uptempo mix, dedicated to those Hardcore fans who will dance throughout the weekend at HoH. He picked records from artists who are performing there, so you know what you can expect! Not unknown artists or records, these are dancefloor smashers. And amongst thousands this weekend will be extremely ace, and you will have a weekend like no other.

MindPumper’s selection is raw and rough, not your standard Hardcore tunes were selected. The beats and basses are quicker and slightly rougher, hence the name ‘Uptempo Hardcore’. This is not for those who can not handle beats above 120bpm. If you think Hardcore is too fast, please leave my blog right now. I won’t talk to anyone who doesn’t like Hardcore…. and literally every style above 120bpm. Shame on you.

Let’s see the records MindPumper has selected.

tracklist

01. N-Vitral – Don’t Fuck With The Squad

21. Death Shock & Spitnoise – Pop That Pussy
22. eDUB vs MBK – Fuck You In The Methlab
23. LunaKorpz – Fck On Cocaine

Damn. this is hard. Harder than hell, I imagine. I reckon even the Devil doesn’t worship Hardcore as fast and rough as this!

I remember the days when I went out and went to the rougher areas, I could only manage half an hour, otherwise my brain would melt, and my feet would detach from my body. It seems that the majority of Hardcore fans have embraced the faster style, and I’m liking it too a lot. Wouldn’t be able to manage hours of it at an event such as HoH, but I still listen to it here at home, or whilst driving to work. Speeding tickets are obviously the result, but I don’t care.

MindPumper’s mix is a very nice mix. Especially when you are sorting out your wardrobe, choosing what to wear today for HoH. Download this badboy right now, and get ready. Put the speakers on maximum, and let the beats, basses and melodies penetrate your skull so extremely hard, your brain will be pulp after.

It was hard to pick one favourite, but the one I liked a lot is ‘Ketamine’.

MindPumper and everyone going to HoH, have fun! And as we Dutch would say: breek de tent af! Breek het af!

How come I am always late? I keep on finding mixes a couple of years old, for old events which already took place. Damn, damn. For example, only a couple of days ago I found this mix done by F.NoIzE on Soundcloud, don’t know why I wasn’t warned about this mix back in 2016, before the event took place? Soundcloud does what it wants, and it doesn’t make any sense. Or maybe it’s my fault, for being too damn lazy. Whatever reason it is, at least I’m listening to his promo mix. Don’t get too excited for it, the event took place 1 year ago, and even this year’s edition took place. You could get excited for next year’s Kingsday?

F.NoIzE, isn’t he the one with that scary mask on? (quick Google search). Yes, he is. Don’t know much about him, but what I do know matters: he plays literally the roughest Hardcore money can buy. This ain’t melodic/euphoric Hardcore, this is the roughest, toughest, bloodiest, angriest Hardcore. Hence the mask. If he played less angry Hardcore, his mask would be a ‘Hello Kitty’ mask, wouldn’t it? Thankfully he’s not wearing that crap, otherwise I would have passed on this mix. I needed something rough this Sunday morning, and bingo, I found it!

tracklist

01. D-Fence – Pompen (Original Mix) 
02. Cyborg – Lord Of the Underground (Remix) 
03. Kutski & Joey Riot – Listen Carefully
04. Hardbouncer – Party Starter
05. Angernoizer & Vandal!sm – Peptalk
06. Hardcore Masterz Vienna – Have A Party
07. Al Twisted & Necrotic – Screwface
08. Angerfist & Miss K8 – Bloodrush (Destructive Tendencies Remix) 
09. Mr. Myagi – Tear Shit Up
10. Lady Damage & Meccano Twins – Cookie Thumper
11. Lunatic & The Dope Doctor – Gangsta Shit
12. Lunatic & Chrono – Fuck Society
13. Tharoza – Chicken Stuff
14. Razor Edge – Death Row ([KRTM] Remix)

19. F.NoIzE vs System Overload – Gabbers In Pariz
20. Darkcontroller & Freeze – Bangareng Bass
21. F.NoIzE vs Chain – Breakin Back
22. The Vizitor & Aggressive – Hardcore Op Je Muil

Wow. If this isn’t your thing, I completely understand. You are not hard enough. This is only for the hardest motherf**kers out there. What I don’t understand is the fact that this mix (and mixes similar to this one) do not come with a warning. This is seriously hard. This will lead up to permanent brain damage.

Nearly 40k plays. People are digging the music he has selected. And they seem to love F.NoIze. Truth be told, I couldn’t listen to this for hours in a row, my ears would start to bleed. But maybe listen to the mix twice in a row, yep, that’s perfect for me.

The mix starts with an absolute banger, and ends with one rough track. And the tracks inbetween? Well, they build up to an aggressive end. The build up is good, the tracks are good, I’ve got no negative comments regarding this mix.

Best track? ‘Lord Of The Underground’. Why? Just listen to it, and you will understand.

Maybe F.NoIzE will play at Kingsday 2018? If so, you can get excited for that. Press play and let this mix dominate your Sunday, like it did mine.

DROKZ IS BACK! Yes, I’ve written it down in capital letters to make sure everyone read it! We’ve got a new promo mix by the legend himself, the man who’s voice goes through our veins. Drokz is the leading figure in the Terror industry, and with this latest mix he showcases his love, dedication and passion for it. This man is the example of how to be great in a small yet vibrant scene. Yes, it’s not really huge as Hardcore is in general, but it’s got a cult following. Those who listen to it, have embraced it with both arms, and are passionate about it. Like Beliebers they are passionate: some even have his name tattooed on their body. How’s that for dedication?

This year he will be playing at Masters Of Hardcore – The Skull Dynasty. And ofcourse the bloody event is sold out: who doesn’t want to go to the biggest Hardcore event in the world, with the most precious history attached to it? Only the die-hard mofos go to it. And you know what? The terror fanatics have got their own area called ‘Dragons Of Doom’. In it you can find Akira (who’s Drokz’s brother in arms), The Destroyer, Noisekick, Striker, The Vizitor (who has the same barber as Drokz), Kurwastyle Project (???), Vague Entity and Mike Redman. In this area no Beliebers can be found, only those who have got pure acid running through their veins and who have a normal pulse of 200 bpm at least.

To promote the event and this area, Drokz made a very short promo mix. Already listened to around 500 times in 2 hours! See, there’s a following, and when they find a mix, they won’t let go. Like myself, I’ve listened to this already 20 times. I love Drokz, I really do. No tattoo though. I’m not that hard.

Check out the tracklist.

tracklist

01. Drokz – Rock 2017
02. Kurwastyle Project feat Furere Lycanthrope – Don’t Fuck With The Chuck!
03. The Destroyer & ADHD XXL feat Drokz – We Are Harder
04. Striker & D-ohmicyd – Hellzone Anthem
05. Vague Entity – Monstrosity
06. The Vizitor – Houd Je Muil
07. Noisekick & Sjammienators – Zolang Het Maar Stampt
08. Akira & Lenny Dee – Hardcore Neko

8 amazing tracks. Especially ‘Houd Je Muil’. Tiny and Lau, if you don’t know them, you ain’t Dutch. They made history many years ago by becoming a sensation in the Netherlands, and now their voices are in a Terror track. And what a good combination this turned out to be!

I’m loving this mix, like many others already have. A short but very interesting mix. I wish I could go to MOH this year, because the line-up in general looks amazing, but the main reason would be my Terror fix. I need more Terror pounding my brain.

This is seriously an amazing mix, loved it from the first to the last second. The best track? By ‘The Vizitor’. Listen to it and you will understand why. The darkness in which this track is covered is really amazing.

Drokz’s latest mix is as good as all the others you can find on his Soundcloud page. I would urge you to follow this man on every social media page imaginable. This man deserves a statue, and his own event. A yearly event, with 12 hours of only Drokz. Drokz and friends? Bollocks, just Drokz.

The usual score for the Godfather of Terror!

And one extra sentence for the Dutch only: van deze mix krijg ik een zwerende eikel, zo goed is hij! Punt.

As you all know, I am a HUGE fan of the early Hardcore/Gabber/Happy Hardcore stuff. My music collection is quite impressive when it comes to that kind of music, and I adore everyone who makes mixes, keeping the music alive and kicking. And recently I’ve discovered a DJ called Casketkrusher, who keeps the music alive and kicking like no-one else. When you do adore the music as much as I do, and grew up with it, this new DJ is the one to follow. His passion and dedication is tremendous, and for those who are unaware of what he’s capable of, here’s one of his mixes.

Released last month, I could have reviewed this much earlier, but sadly there was no tracklist. I really needed a tracklist, because I did not know all tracks by name. Thankfully yesterday he replied with a tracklist, which you can also find underneath the mix. And this mix is dope, seriously dope. Yes, the majority of DJs keep on mixing stuff which we’ve heard a billion times before, but not these tracks. You won’t know what hit you once you’ve pressed the precious ‘play’ button. This is insane, this is impressive, and above all: this is my kind of Hardcore.

The tracklist, I’ve waited for this quite a while, but it was worth it. Check this beast out!

tracklist

01. Dougal & Mickey Skeedale – New Generation (Hard Mix) 
02. Da Pumping Universe – The Northstar
03. Ultimate Buzz feat MC Bee – Rofo’s Theme (El Bruto Remix) 
04. Uranium – Rippin’ Off Wax

06. The Stunned Guys – Beats Time
07. DJ Ruffneck vs Juggernaut – I’m A Ruffneck!!!

09. Kool Killers – Amerikaaaaah! (DJ Dano Amsterdam ’96 Remix)

22. DJ Dano – 120-9000 BPM

Come on, if this doesn’t cause tingling sensation down in your underpants, you ain’t Hardcore. You might like the new generation Hardcore, but never call yourself a true Hardcore fan, because you aren’t. Like your roots, like this. This is the music that defined a generation, and created the path for future projects. This is the reason why Hardcore is still alive: because it was banging, fresh, new, uplifting, different, and above all: it was f**king ace!

This mix has got everything you need: Gabber, Happy Hardcore, a tiny amount of Terror (c.q. last track), early Hardcore and more. This brings back good memories, and this is the kind of music I miss. Only a handful of producers keep this sound alive, but I prefer this above the new Hardcore. Not saying that the new is crap of bad, but this was so much different. This is the music that came from the soul, and dedication lead to these tracks. On basic materials they made this, not being helped by soft- and hardware that we’ve got nowadays.

The music was so good. And this mix is going straight into my top 10 ‘all time greatest mixes’. I’m truly in love with Casketkrusher’s mix. What can I mention about the tracks? Well, the only track I don’t like is the ‘Amerikaaah!’ track. Not my cup of tea. But if that’s all… nothing bad in all fairness, eh? 1 out of 22 tracks ain’t bad?

The mixing side of it is just spot on. I can’t name a single bad thing, I simply can’t. I’m truly in love with this mix. Please Casketkrusher, keep providing us with mixes such as this one, we need more. We are desperate. This is what keeps me and others alive!

One of the greatest mixes of all time. Fantastic tunes.
