From new music in previous mixes to some Oldskool Happy Hardcore! Yes, you can find literally everything on my page, and also on Soundcloud (you’ll probably find more stuff on there to be honest). Todays entertainment has been brought to you by Yorkshire Ripper and his latest mix, which is called ‘Back To The 90’s Vol.3′. Yes, the third instalment, sadly I missed the other 2 volumes, but there’s still enough time during this weekend to find them and listen to them. But for now we focus on the third volume.

The 90s were great because the music was good. Not the top 40, because that was just basically filled with cheesy pop tunes which made no sense, but the Happy Hardcore scene, wow, that was booming! Even to this day it makes sense, and makes thousands of people smile, including TCD. There’s obviously a difference between the UK side of it and the rest of Europe. And this mix by Yorkshire Ripper focusses on both, but mostly on the UK side of Happy Hardcore. And that’s sadly something I missed out on when I grew up during the 90s, because the mix compilations in the Netherlands mainly had European Happy Hardcore tracks on them. So it could be that the tracks selected are new, and by looking at them, 75% are to be frank.

Let’s look at the tracklist….

tracklist

01. DJ Tap-It + B&H – Rap Of The Psychopath (Cru-L-T Remix) 
02. Scott Brown – I Don’t Need Nobody
03. Trixxy – Mentasmission
04. Q-Tex – Power Of Love (Scott Brown 98 Mix) 
05. M.I.B. – Feel That Groove
06. DJ Seduction – Samplemania
07. Inner Destruction – Bang To The Beat
08. Scott Brown vs Omar Santana – Ain’t It Wild
09. Vinylgroover & Trixxy – Tonight’s The Night
10. Edit V – DJ’s Mixing

13. Deep Wave – Power (Triple J Remix) 
14. Mr X – Chameleon
15. Supernova – Step Off
16. Helix – Now Control

Yep, it’s true, I don’t know 3/4th of these tracks. I know the artists, who doesn’t know Scott Brown, Omar Santana, Helix, El Bruto, Vinylgroover, Trixxy etc? If you don’t know them, you are too young. Press play now, and be amazed by what the 90s had to offer!

Yorkshire Ripper selected a lot of amazing tracks I have never heard of before, and it’s a nice selection. On this dreadful Saturday morning the only thing you want to hear is something mellow, and I think I found something nice for us all. You can download this bad boy, get the BBQ ready, and play it whilst cooking burgers! How’s that for a Saturday afternoon, eh?

I’m digging this mix a lot. Had a sneek peak when I was at work, and it already brought a smile on my face, from cheek to cheek. If that happens, you know a mix is good.

Got nothing to comment about . It’s a good mix, so why aren’t you downloading this already? Hurry up! Before you know it your chance to start a BBQ and have nice music playing in the background has passed. Hurry up.

Best track? I can’t pick. Too difficult!

M-Project is a legend all over the world! It’s a fact, and you can not disagree with me. He’s been entertaining people all over the world for many years, but I never knew he started back in 2004 producing Makina records. Yes, maybe he answered the question in the interview we did a while back, but my mind is full of useless facts which have taken over much more interesting things. But at least we’ve got the world wide web, which is filled with many useful facts, and interesting mixes. And one you are about to listen to, is focussed on M-Project’s Makina side, which started back in 2004, and to showcase his production skills he asked MC Stretch, Stafford and Scotty-G to join him during this mix with their MC skills.

Makina is big, wherever you are. Don’t know how to describe it, but it’s basically a bit of UK Hardcore and Happy Hardcore joined together. Yes, it might sound a lot like Powerstomp, but because of Makina Powerstomp excists. And because of artists such as M-Project Makina is world wide known. He keeps on pushing his own music forward, and every so often he travels halfway around the world to please the fans over here, in the UK. I reckon you will like this mix a lot, if you like M-Project as much as I do.

Makina, is it still big because of M-Project? Is he the biggest name in the scene?

27. M-Project feat MC Steal – Unleash The Rave

This has been on repeat all day! I’m a fan of M-Project for a couple of years, and I’m digging his production mix, showcasing his musical side from 2004 until 2014, and he’s been accompanied by three excellent MCs, who take the mic separately, but make it work.

As usual M-Project makes a mix so worth while, and it’s already going towards the 2000 plays in just a couple of days. It must seem that M-Project is popular, but there’s a good reason for it: the music is banging! From his early stuff to ‘recent’ stuff, it all works extremely well. You can hear his production level changing over the years, but it’s still amazing. Since the early days he’s capable of amazing crowds, including TCD.

A couple of years ago I thought Makina was too cheesy, even for this crazy Dutchman (the Dutch love cheese), but Makina is growing on me.

MC Stretch, MC Stafford, MC Scotty-G accompany the mix extremely well, and make it worth a listen or two. And you can download this badboy, and play it out loud wherever you go/are.

What’s the best track in this mix? ‘Melodies Of Passion II’. Why? Just listen to it, and let the track speak for itself.

Another slamming mix by the mysterious M-Project. He doesn’t muck about, he’s here to entertain us, spreading his Makina love from 2004 until the present day!

As you all know I am a fan of Oldskool music, and only a couple of months ago I discovered an artist who loves the Oldskool stuff as much as I do, and his name is Casketkrusher. Want to hear something funny? He likes the oldskool UK Hardcore/Rave stuff too! Not just Happy Hardcore or Gabber, but tracks by Q-Tex, Dougal & Mickey Skeedale, Eruption, SMD, and more. And that has made my day even better!

What can I say about Casketkrusher that you already don’t know? He likes the older stuff, and he’s got long hair. Yep, that’s all I know. But what he does, he does it extremely well. Still can’t stop listening to his previous mixes, they are solid as a rock. He’s like King Midas, everything he touches, turns into Gold. And because the Summer is about to happen (or has it started already, never know which date it starts, but the weather is going up and up, so we must be close), he made a Summer mix, full of UK Hardcore/Happy Hardcore/Rave/Oldskool tunes, and I suggest that you give this a go. Today is my day off, because of a holiday in the Netherlands, and it’s perfect to turn up the speakers to the max, and sit in the garden, drink a nice beverage, and embrace the sunshine!

Tracklist anyone?

Wow! I am an Oldskool fan, but I don’t know where Casketkrusher got these tracks from, because I only know about 1% of these tracks! They are all new in my books. His collection must be extremely impressive, but now it’s obvious why he loves his Oldskool stuff so much, because he’s got so many amazing records!

Quick rant of the day: who came up with track titles such as ‘Revenge Of The Cosmic Ice Cream Men’? That has got to be one of the weirdest titles I have ever seen!

Back to the mix. The mix is good. Tight (few tiny errors, but nothing big), and the tracks are really good. I think that digging up these forgotten gems is really what more people should do. Yes, we have heard the all-time classics before, but we want to hear more mixes such as this one, filled with tracks most of us don’t even know existed.

Casketkrusher is a hero to me. In the widest range he is. He’s got the same passion as I do, and it’s contagious. I can’t stop listening to it. Rumours do excist that he’s doing a special mix focussed on Thunderdome soon, so keep your eyes and ears open: if that mix is as good as this one of previous mixes, we won’t be disappointed.

Like his page, and share this mix (sadly no download option). Make sure the kids know where the Hardcore sound originated from, and teach them how good the music back in the days was, and still is!

Best record? The first one. What a track to start your mix with! Slamming track!

When a title of a mix(tape) is all in capitals, it must mean it’s fire. I saw this promo video the other week, and I got intrigued. Someone using the word ‘fuck’ so many times, that’s interesting. And also the music in the video was interesting. The name of the person? SPYRO. Yes, you recognise the name, and now there’s no hiding it: he’s after everyone, making sure you get this mixtape and play it out loud, waking up the whole area with his new sound. What does he call his new sound/style? Is it SPYROCore?

Wasn’t he Lethal Theory’s latest signing? And he releases his mix right on time, before the Summer kicks in and people are out and about. People can download this beast right now, and listen to it for months in a row. Why? Because we are the turn generation. If you are not, you are not allowed to download this mix. Read the title, and realise secretly that you are turnt.

Don’t know much about SPYRO, only that he’s made several tracks with Alex Prospect, which I’ve heard in many mixes before. It’s basically his promo mix for this mix that intrigued me a lot. According to the video, he’s in search for a brand new sound, and with this mix he has achieved it. Yes, it’s still UK Hardcore but with a twist. What’s that twist? Don’t have a clue, but it does sound good!

tracklist

01. Intro 
02. SPYRO – Diamond Mouth
03. SPYRO – How Deep Is Your Love
04. DJ Snake – Turn Down For What (SPYRO RE-FLEX) 
05. SPYRO – Drop It Low
06. Migos – Look At My Dab (Bad Royale & Diplo Remix) (SPYRO RE-FLEX) 
07. SPYRO – Throwin’ Hunna
08. SPYRO & Alex Prospect – Heads In The Clouds
09. SPYRO – Gotta Get Lo
10. SPYRO – Original Bad Boy
11. SPYRO – Green Drink Paint Party
12. SPYRO x Alex Prospect – Intoxicated
13. SPYRO – Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit
14. SPYRO & Alex Prospect – Need U 100%
15. SPYRO & Alex Prospect – Up 2 No Good (SPYRO FESTIVAL FLEX) 
16. SPYRO – Don’t Let Me Down x Better Off Alone (RE-FLEX) 
17. SPYRO – Mad Ting Mashup (Come With Me)

This mix is fire. And yes, it’s unique. The sound that he makes is unusual. It combines several styles into one. Like Gammer did before, but SPYRO perfected it. There’s still no name to it, but if it’s going to be named EDMCore, let me all warn you: months ago I was the first to come up with that term.

Anyway, SPYRO’s mix is indeed fire, but why so short? I don’t know why this mix is so short, I was really digging it, and then I realised that the mix was over. Only 20 minutes long. Why? Most mixes are at least double the length, but maybe it’s to tease people even more, getting hyped up for the sensation that is SPYRO.

What’s the biggest track in this mix? ‘Drop It Low’. Which is the ‘not the best track in this mix’? ‘Up 2 No Good’. Really like the original too much.

The speed at which these tunes hit you is unreal. 20 minutes of SPYRO madness. Have you listened to this mix already? You haven’t? Check it out on Soundcloud, it’s worth all the hype around it. Even me, TCD, got hooked on the ride, and promoted the video on my mainpage. But now the mixtape is out, it’s time for us all to appreciate it. And so should you!

SPYRO. Big mix!
