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
05. The Prophet – Housetime! (3 Steps Ahead Remix) 
06. The Stunned Guys – Beats Time
07. DJ Ruffneck vs Juggernaut – I’m A Ruffneck!!!
08. Matrix + Wargroover – Energy
09. Kool Killers – Amerikaaaaah! (DJ Dano Amsterdam ’96 Remix) 
10. DJ Dano – Fuckem All (Original Mix) 
11. DJ Sim – Horras ’94
12. The Propher – The Sound He Makes
13. Pineapple Jack – Do That Dance!
14. Frank E & Mars-L – Spliffs ‘N Niffs
15. DJ Waxweazle – I Like This World
16. Urban Menace – The Wrong Nigga To Fuck With
17. Dance Overdose – Portant
18. R. Wagner – My Dominion
19. Evil Maniax – Psychopath
20. Trickster – Emphasis On Hardcore
21. The Thundergods Of Asgard – Bustin’ Walls
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.

Godverdomme, am I late again with yet another promo mix? I keep on finding mixes for events which have already taken place! And this event would have been one of those events I would have put money aside for, even though it’s not a huge event, but the line-up was just picture perfect: Partyraiser, Nosferatu, N-Vitral, D-Fence, Amada, and ofcourse grandad Drokz, or as we Dutchies like to call him ‘Opa Drokz’, the voice behind the legendary scream ‘Thunderdome’. The most well known Terror DJ in the whole wide world, and the most loved too.

Normally you find weird studio mixes or free EPs on his Soundcloud, and with this mix I thought I was going to listen to a mix he made at home, just showcasing his skills. But I was wrong, this was for the event ‘Dynamite Hardcore’. Well, it could have been a showcase mix, because Drokz is Dynamite and he plays Hardcore. Anyhow, to promote this event he made an awesome mix, only 33 minutes long. And as you would expect it’s too damn hard for the weakest of heart. You can not listen to this if you think 130BPMs are the right level. If you do, please leave and never come back to this page, because this Dutchman likes it hard and rough (that sounded wrong?!), just as hard as Drokz!

Let’s see the tracklist. It’s something you should open your eyes for.

tracklist

01. Dione – Pain Till I Die (SRB Remix) 
02. Drokz – Bloodbath
03. Drokz – On To The Next One
04. Mithridate & Paranoizer – Crystal Shit
05. Drokz – The Groove Of The Electronic Music
06. Detest – My Porn
07. Striker – Know Your Enemy
08. Coffeecore – Snares DJ Tool
09. Hardbouncer – Bambola Assassina
10. Drokz, Akira & MC Michel a.k.a. Hentaiboy #1 – Hentai Hardcore
11. Angernoizer & Tripped – Beats Can’t Handle It
12. Kurwastyle vs Terrorclown – Do You Want A Balloon (Darkcontroller Remix) 
13. Drokz – Nobody Is Leaving
14. Drokz – I Want To Be A Terrorist
15. Hellseeker – Bodysnatchers

Seriously, this is yet another insane mix by the Godfather of Terror music! It’s 7:29 in the early morning here in London, and I’m blasting the music through the speakers as loud as you can imagine it! This has made my morning even more special, because I was after a mix which was a bit rougher and tougher (that’s how we Dutch people like our music).

I would have gone to the event, just to see the legend in the flesh. And all the other too, they rock aswel. But Drokz is the voice, the man, the legend, the myth.

The tracks are as usual simply astonishing! A nice balance between his own tracks and tracks by others. Drokz has mixed them together so nicely, those 33 minutes fly by and you press play again once the mix has finished.

I simply can not say anything bad about this mix or mention something which was bad, because everything was perfect (only Drokz knows how to). But which is my favourite track of this mix? ‘Bodysnatchers’. So rough and tough my hemorrhoid started to bleed due to the dirtyness of this record.

Drokz has done it again. No free download, but hasn’t he given enough already?

It’s been a while since I last reviewed an album, and I think it’s about time you all hear about this latest album from the mighty Darkside Unleashed, and it only got released yesterday! The album is called ‘Sampler Three’, and if you dig Hardcore Techno, this is a must listen to album. Proper Hardcore, not for those who think that Hardcore is hard when it’s 140bpm. If you are into Hardcore which is slightly rougher and tougher than the most known records, why not check this album out/

This album is released by Darkside Unleashed, and unless you were offline for the last 20 years (well, that’s a bit excaggerated), you must know this label and already follow them on several social media pages. You might know the label, and I do to, but this album is fairly new to me. It contains records by new artists, artists I’ve never heard of before. Brand new perspectives on Hardcore, which is always a bonus. Yes, we’ve heard Angerfist and Promo and all the other well known names for quite a while now, I want to hear the new breed and their tunes, and this album is focussed on that.

The tracklist is quite sexy. If you don’t see it, you might to clean your lenses/glasses, and if that still doesn’t work, you might need to see a doctor urgently. This is sexy. New names, new music, new perspectives. Exciting times for Hardcore.

tracklist

01. Rob Da Rhythm – Hard & Fast
02. Vandal!sm & Ysiss – Down With The Underground
03. Unrest – Hypocrites
04. Digital Violence & Lady Bex – Suicide Squad
05. Hardbouncer – Untouchable
06. Cryogenic – Victimized (Repix Remix) 
07. Masters Of Noise vs Sonic & D-Vstor – Fuck The Police
08. Nuke & Lost Origin – Sucker Sucker
09. PsykoKnot – Roll Call

14. Para Italia – Go Fuck Yourself
15. Chrono & De Man Int Zwart – Power
16. Chaotic Hostility – Kill The Devil
17. Angernoizer – Bomb Da Drop

See! Gorgeous, isn’t it? And it’s available now! And there’s another added bonus (if you are a DJ): these are DJ friendly records. No mix, just pure solid and separate records. Full length, and high quality tunes. It’s time for you to indulge yourself into the world of the unknown, and listen to what they have to offer. And what they had to offer was amazing!

I’ve listened to this album already a thousand times, and it hasn’t disappointed me. It made the car journey to and from work quite pleasant. Those who drove past me must have thought I was a complete loon, because I was head butting the air around me constantly, and fist pumping in a row. But who cares?

The tunes were good! My favourite track was ‘We Crash The Party’. Oh, and also ‘Power’, and ‘Bomb Da Drop’. They made the speakers in my car go ape. A pleasant feeling you must experience for yourself. It ain’t hard, just go to Hardtunes.com, search for this album and download it now.

There was a tiny thing, and I think I should mention it. This ain’t for the weakest, and it’s ain’t melodic, but when a track tries to become a bit melodic, it all of a sudden doesn’t. Example: track 9. I miss something great in this track. Other tracks also contain a bit too much, crammed into a few minutes. Some were missing bits, and some needed just a bit more.

A great album, containing a lot of amazing tunes. Worth a download, don’t you agree?
