Can’t believe this mixtape was released back in 2008! Jeez, time does fly by quickly! Back in 2008 I was a huge fan of Bassline, probably one of the few Dutch people digging it. I was so into it, I downloaded literally every mixtape you could find on the world wide web. Via this search I found TRC and his mixtapes. The music was dope, nothing compared to the music which was produced in the Netherlands, and it grabbed my attention immediately. I became a fan of the producing side of TRC, because he kept releasing tunes after tunes which changed the Bassline scene. He was a pioneer, and when he mentioned that he was going to release an album (I think it had 100 of his own tracks on it) I had to get it. Unbelievable that it was 2008 when these tunes dominated the dancefloors all over the UK.

He was unique and fresh, and no one could copy the way he produced music. I don’t know what happened to Bassline music, I have stopped following it for a long time now, but I don’t think it sounds the same like it did back in 2008. The music from 8 years ago still brings a smile on my face, and makes the speakers in my car bounce up and down. It also makes my tummy go ape, because the bassline literally goes through my system and shakes me internally. The music is so underrated, and so is TRC. This man should get more credit for what he has achieved, the tunes are absolutely insane he produced.

If you are wondering how TRC sounded back in 2008, this mixtape is filled with collaborations. Just witness the tracklist and once you’ve done that, you really want to go back to 2008.

Seriously, when did time decide to fly even faster? 2008? Wow, I remember listening to these mixtapes with my headphone on max, dancing in public transport like an idiot. My God these tunes are good, solid as a rock.

I might be Dutch, but I still feel the vibes these tunes generate. I might not have a clue what the rappers/MCs are saying, but it’s not about what they are saying, it’s about the whole picture. If it sounds right and works well, why worry about the lyrics? Lyrics aren’t important. I only find out what Blud and Bruv meant years after hearing these words (I thought blud had something to do with donating blood, and bruv maybe Belgians making love). Lyrics are important.

You can get this mixtape right now from Bandcamp. TRC was so kind to upload this mixtape, and it’s one you need to have. No matter if it’s 2016, once you’ve press play you are back in 2008.

Best track? ‘Hey Thats My Sound’. Zeo is still one of my favourite MCs. Never knew until today that it was a diss towards Mr V. You are never too old to learn.

Big up TRC. We need Bassline to come back. Bassline sounding like the way he made it.

TRC is back with a brand new mix, to celebrate the upcoming winter! The temperatures will drop, clothes will be put on, layer on layer, no skin will be visible, and the streets will be covered by snow. The winter is near, and even though we aren’t ready for it, TRC is. He decided to upload a brand new mix, to showcase his strength as a DJ and as a producer. This legendary DJ/producer knows a thing or two about how to make awesome tracks and mixes, and this mix is no exception. Even though most of us hate the winter, I hope it will arrive soon, so we can turn the heating on, take off our clother (not go fully naked ofcourse, don’t want to scare people) and dance the night away. Winter, we are ready.

TRC is a hero. I’ve followed him since the early days of Bassline, and I even bought his album. It was signed by the man himself, and it’s still one of the coolest albums I’ve got, because TRC is very talented when it comes to producing tracks. In this mix he only played two of his own productions, which is a pity, because his tracks are always good. This mix is rather good, because it’s filled with UK Garage/2Step/House tracks. To be honest, this mix doens’t make me think of the winter, it makes me think of the summer, when we were still outside, enjoying the sunshine, and relaxed throughout the summer. This is an excellent mix, exactly what we were after. The tracks he has selected are all good, and carefully mixed together. Summery tunes, lovely vibes you will hear if you press play.
