… Music, that is, not pornography!
(Although to be fair a lot of the stuff featured in this post is truly filthy).
Anyways, as a special Bank Holiday treat, here are two excellent mixes from different ends of the hardcore spectrum, one hardcore techno, the other freeform hardcore. Both of these mixes are in zip files, and both are fecking excellent.
First up is this classic mix from DJ Fury, which I originally picked up as a covermount on Dream Magazine, the magazine from Dream FM, the classic London hardcore pirate station that ran back in the 90’s. Yes kids, back in the day pirate stations even ran their own magazines, complete with lots of interesting (but often grammatically suspect) articles!
What made Dream unique for the time was that every issue came with a free mix cd, many of which were really good. Like, well, this one, which was done by DJ Fury to promote two compilation cd’s called Chemical Dance Culture that the Tecnojam label had just released. The promotion didn’t really help, since Tecnojam didn’t actually release any more comps afterwards, but fortunately at least this mix got made.
And it’s a hell of a mix, starting off with vintage early trancecore (or freeform as it was later to be known) before moving into some classic mid-90’s hardcore … breakbeats, big stabs, pianos n’ all. Something for all the family!
