Found a mix I wanted to share for a while now, a nice mix by TCDs favourite record mixer (well, he’s known for cramming in many records in a short mix) jerOO. jerOO even made a promo mix for TCD, so he does get more credit than others, but who cares? It’s about the music, and this time he made a Grime mix, and uploaded this bad boy only 9 days ago, and I found this mix (I reckon) 6 days ago. Haven’t stopped listening to it since the first time I heard it and pressed play. I might be the whitest person on Gods given Earth, but Grime is awesome.

Every mix jerOO makes is pure gold. And this one ain’t no exception. He did it the usual way, 34 records in a 52 minute mix. And the result is quite a dark and nasty mix, and that’s really what I was after. jerOO’s mixes are always entertaining, and I reckon during my journey home yesterday I looked like a complete tool, dancing at King’s Cross whilst these tunes came flying through my headset. Could I care any less? Yes.

Haven’t heard a Grime mix for ages, and I think it’s about time for me to indulge into that wonderful world, which is literally taking over the world! When I listened to Grime during the early 00s, it was big in the UK, but now it’s dominating the world. How amazing is that?

Let’s see the tracklist, it’s a beauty.

What a seriously insane mix! I know only 10% of the artists, but the tunes are just fire! They are lid, isn’t that what the kids nowadays say? I am not a kid anymore, so I wouldn’t know. But if that’s what the kids say, it’s true. This mix is on fire, literally. I think I need to call the fire brigade.

There are a lot of awesome tracks, and they are so dark and edgy. jerOO mixed them together beautifully, with small errors here and there, but hey, the general feeling is good. But which track made me bounce the hardest? Well, there can only be one, and it’s logical that I chose this one: ‘Saria Riddim’. OMG, never heard this one before, and it’s amazing! After the first time I heard it, I went onto Youtube and played the tune over and over again. This is such an addictive tune, it seriously is.

jerOO’s mix is pure entertainment. Record after record hits you, and they hit you hard. But they can’t compete to Soloman’s ‘Saria Riddim’.

I’m loving the vibes, sadly it’s not downloadable, but at least we can listen to this mix everywhere there’s reception. Yesterday on the way home in tunnels (yes, I had to take public transport) Soundcloud decided to play up. Arrgh. Anyway, I am home now, and I’m waking up the whole street. Damn right so.

Today is a good day. Even though the weather is quite crappy, the music that comes through my speakers today is good. From nice EDM/Dubstep/Drumstep mix to a very good UKG mix by Redhot. When I spotted this earlier, I immediately downloaded it, burned it onto a disc, and did the cleaning of the house. It made it all much better, and made the minutes fly by! But we can talk for hours about me cleaning the house, but that will become the most uninteresting piece you will ever read, so I will keep this discomfort away from you, and only talk about the music.

I’ve never heard of New Movement nor DJ Redhot, but his mix immediately landed in my top 10 list of 2016. Not heard many UKG mixes lately, don’t know why that is, but when I do receive/look for mixes, they are all great! The mix is just spot on, the tunes aren’t boring, Redhot’s mixing is just spot on, and it will brighten your weekend (depending on when you are playing it obviously).

I wasn’t expecting this mix to be this dope, but it clearly was. I felt like cruising down North London with my pimp Volvo S40, windows down, factory standard speaking on loud, and looking cool. This is the perfect mix to enjoy whilst driving. Or doing some housework. Or literally whenever. You can appreciate this whilst making love, or baking a cake, or whatever!

tracklist

01. Redhot – Intro No. 3
02. Moony – Routine
03. Atumpan feat Paigey Cakey – Watch Nobody (B1G Proj3ct Remix)

21. Redhot – Intro No. 1

When you press ‘play’ on Soundcloud or whatever you are about to listen to this on, you will not notice the outside world flying by! These 45 minutes of UKG madness will fly pass, and you won’t notice. This will make you go into your comfort zone, and you will feel dreadful the second this mix ends. I really wanted it to go on for hours and hours.

Redhot has picked quite a lot of amazing tunes, and mixes them together nicely, flawless and errorless. A mix like this one does light my UKG spark again, and has caused me to dig through my collection, getting out the old classic anthem compilations. I need more UKG!

New Movement/Redhot’s mix is seriously dope, and insanely good! This brought a smile on my face. This mix proves to me that UKG is timeless: this sounds as cool and dope as the early stuff, and yet it’s brand new!

Credits for this awesome mix. I can not pick one favourite records, because they are all ace! Redhot, your mix is truly red HOT!

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.

tracklist

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.

Today is a good day. Not only on a personal level, but also on a musical level. New music has been found, and a lot of it. One of the mixes I’ve found is a brand new mix by Dirtbox, which is called ‘Bass Odyssey Volume 1’. According to the info added underneath the mix on Soundcloud, this mix is ‘the first in a series of Bass driven mixes’, which obviously means that there’s more to come. If you like Bass, look no further, you have found an excellent mix. Not focussed on one style or genre only, as long as it is Bass driven, it goes in this mix.

I had to look up who Dirtbox were, because I wasn’t aware of who’s behind this project. This is a three person group, and the people behind it are Lee UHF, Banshco and Lee Tabix, and they play a wide variety of music, from Drum and Bass to Electro. And in this mix you can find everything you are after. This is jam packed with excellent tunes, 21 amazing tracks. As I said before, the focus is on Bass driven music, and that’s what you get.

The mix has a tracklist, and I think it’s time for you all to see it! Whilst reading the tracklist, why not download this and press play, and go bananas?

The Bass was very important when they composed this mix, and it is filled with excellent tunes, I have to say. 21 amazing tracks, and versatile too! Not bound to one style or genre, which is what I was waiting for.

A very entertaining first mix of this brand new series. The tracks are all solid, and to pick a favourite is a difficult decision. There are too many. Loving the ‘Round The Clock’ a lot, ‘Higher’ is also wicked, but the one that makes me dance like a monkey on acid the most has got to be ‘Ripgroove’. Everyone knows the original, and this version is as good as the original. I have heard many remixes and they never did the original justice, but this one seems to work well. A dancefloor smasher.

There are some small mixing errors, but who points them out? Only I do, but who am I? You are really going to enjoy this mix a lot. A good and welcome surprise into the boring, same style mixes world we live in. Diversity is what will get the people excited and let them expand their knowledge, not playing the same stuff over and over and not dipping your toes in different waters (if you know what I mean). Dirtbox’s mix is highly entertaining.

The mixing errors are just small, but can’t give it 5 out of 5. I’m picky, yes I know. Still a great mix though, don’t let my score change your perspective. Give this mix a go, right now!
