This year in Croatia there’s an event you don’t want to miss. Hard Island. I think I wrote about it a couple of weeks ago. Anyway, it’s an event you seriously don’t want to miss. Taking place between the 3rd and 6th of July, and the line-up is seriously sickening (in a good way): Angerfist, Atmozfears, Coone, Minus Militia, Noisecontrollers, Partyraiser, Psyko Punkz, The Sickest Squad and more. One act which will perform there is Brutale, and as the name states, this is brutal music, not for the weakest people, only for the die-hard Hardcore lovers.

To get everyone in the mood they’ve uploaded several mixes onto Soundcloud, and one of them has been listened to by yours truly. Brutale’s promo mix is seriously hard, Italy’s finest DJs all together on one stage, who doesn’t want to hear that? You can catch them at Hard Island, but for now you’ve got this promo mix, which will excite you to a level never reached before. The mix is only 30 minutes long, but it’s one violent record after another, and I’m liking it! They do what only they can do best: deliver a seriously hard set.

Half an hour long, and 11 records. What can you expect? Well, brutal music coming through your speakers!


01. Andy The Core – Kill Somebody
02. The Anunnaki feat MC Braincase – #SickSociety
03. Underground Vandalz – Music Panic Baseball Bat
04. The Sickest Squad – Revolution (Mecanno Twins Remix) 
05. Bit Reactors feat Vale Blake – Open Your Eyes
06. Brutale & Rob Gee – No Compromise
07. The Sickest Squad – Zombie
08. Andy The Core – Brutal Method
09. Meccano Twins – No God (Mutilate Australia Anthem) 
10. Brutale – Brutale
11. Andy The Core – F#cktempo

A hard mix, that’s for sure. This is not soft core music, this is Brutal Hardcore, or as we know it from now on as Brutalcore. It does take Hardcore to the next level, the level between Hardcore and Terror.

Brutale’s mix is savage. A nice and diverse mix, with a few wicked anthems, like ‘Brutale’. It makes me want to scream out ‘BRUTALE’ so damn loud, but I reckon it’s not appropriate at the moment (the Manchester concert for those affected by the Terror attacks is happening now). I will scream it out once the concert is over, ok?

I do like Brutale, and their approach to the already excisting Hardcore scene. Their unique blend and experience has led up to them creating this group, and if you are liking their rawness, check them out at Hard Island. It’s one event I wish I could go to, but sadly I can’t.

Two records I don’t like. ‘Zombie’ and ‘No Compromise’. But the other 9 are brutal. ‘#SickSociety’ is savage, but ‘Music Panic Baseball Bat’ (credits for creating the weirdest title ever!) is just what I’m digging the most.

Brutale, you are brutal. Keep the Hardcore from Italy kicking, even in Croatia!

If you want tickets, I don’t know if there are any left, but that’s up to you to find out! Go to www.hardisland.com NOW!

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.


01. N-Vitral – Don’t Fuck With The Squad
02. Partyraiser & Bulletproof – Nothing’s Over
03. Destructive Tendencies – I’ll Let You Have Your Day (Lady Dammage Remix) 
04. Destructive Tendencies & Partyraiser – Sound Becomes One
05. Spitnoise – 200 BPM Mash-up
06. Radical Redemption – Brutal Mad Man (Hatred Edit) 
07. System Overload vs Insane S – Break Me Down
08. Hatred vs Unproven vs NSD – I Smoke
09. Sjammienators & Ysiss – Boogie Woogie
10. Vandal!sm – Ketamine
11. D-Fence & Angernoizer – Afbreken
12. System Overload vs Drokz – Click Bang
13. Anhatema – Beat Crash
14. Dave Dope – Deadly Sins (Rawmachine & Convict Remix) 
15. MBK – Time 2 Crunch
16. Re-Fuzz – Theatralic
17. System Overload vs Wars Industry – Raggabomb (Chaotic Hostility Remix) 
18. NSD – Al Doilea E. Abstraction
19. Spitnoise & Death Shock – Brahh (NSD Remix) 
20. DRS vs FRX – Contact
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!

I am a huge fan of Hardcore, in every shape or form. I can listen to Hardcore 24/7, and it would still make me very happy. I do love its diversity, and it keeps me going. One form of Hardcore I do not listen to that often is Uptempo Hardcore. I don’t need to explain what the hell that means, it’s in the bloody name! It’s Hardcore speeded up.

I found this mix literally by accident. I pressed play and it blew my mind away! Such a powerful mix by someone I’ve never heard of, Mindspitter. But I won’t be stopped by names, I only focus on the music (when it comes to Soundcloud). This mix had a tracklist, and that is all that mattered to me. I pressed play, and after hearing the first beats penetrating my skull I felt like a monkey on acid! I couldn’t controle myself. And truth be told, when I was dancing, I looked ridicilously.

I gave this mix a go, and it was absolutely worth it. Sadly the mix isn’t that long, but it contains a few amazing tracks. This will enlighten your day: we’ve been listening to too much Christmas music on the radio already, it’s time for some decent music.


01. Psycho Killer – Ego
02. Unproven – Prison
03. Sjammienators & Ysiss – Boogie Woogie
04. Psycho Killer & Bläserbass – Surrender (Met Puntjes Op De A)
05. Mindspitter – That’s Nasty
06. Sequencer – Smart Line
07. LunaKorpz & Tim Shopp – F*ck It
08. MBK – Terror To Da Bone

The tracks are all amazing! This is what I was after on this boring Saturday morning. I need some Uptempo Hardcore every day! This gets to me every time I hear an uptempo mix.

I know nothing about the label or the artist who made this mix, or even most of the artists in this mix, but it’s the music that should get the attention, and the music is stomping!!! Banging, not for the weakminded people, only for those who can rave the night away whilst listening to those BPMs flying through the speakers towards them. The beats and basses are non stop, and when you hear this on the dancefloor, you don’t even have time to breathe. And come to think of it, why would you?

What can I say that I haven’t said already? I’m digging this mix a lot! What’s my favourite track? ‘F*ck It’. The track is as quirky as I am, and it’s nicely balanced and unorganised, and yet it makes sense.

This live mix has made my day! More Uptempo. And it’s true, uptempo is the tempo.
