Cue File Frenzy – DJ Extreme’s Hardscore

two pound lobster
This has nothing to do with music, it’s just a two pound lobster I ate when I was in Canada

Here’s a new series of posts I’ll be doing on Sonicrampage, where I’ll be pointing you towards cue files that I’ve made for chopping up mixes, with a focus on specific series of mixes, either from specific sites or from specific dj’s (or from specific dj’s specific sites, if we’re really getting pedantic).

Since I bigged him up a few posts back, it’s only logical to start with DJ Extreme’s Hardscore site, which is like a digital Aladdin’s cave of old skool hardcore/jungle/drum n’ bass goodness.

Sad bastard that I am, needless to say that I’ve been chopping up some of his mixes in my (frankly limited) spare time. I know I’m not the only person who likes his mixes (cheers to PlasmaDancer for the hat tip), so hopefully this will be helpful to others!

If you want the low-down to how to use a cue file to cut up a mix, check out my (comprehensive) guide. If you already know that stuff, then you can head straight here to grab the cue files I’ve already created, which thus far includes the following mixes:

1993 Hardcore Vol. 9
1995 Jungle Vol. 7
1996 Jungle Vol. 6
1997 DNB Vol. 1
The Bristol Mix Vol. 3
Smooth Grooves Vol. 2
Smooth Grooves Vol. 4
Smooth Grooves Vol. 5
Smooth Grooves Vol. 7

If you want the full link to the cue files, it’s

I’ll be adding more as I cut up more mixes.

PS: If you’re DJ Extreme, I hope you don’t mind, if you do, just drop me an email at pearsall[at]gmail[dot]com and I’ll pull them down.
