100 10 0 ~~ Qualkommando Tribute (2023)
I am going blind into this mix. The only reason I have picked this one, is because it had a funny coloured picture, and the tag said Terror. And I love myself a bit of Terror every so often. Hell, to even prove it: you can check my Soundcloud history: yesterday I decided to listen to both Tunnel Of Terror CDs in a row. But when it comes to the mix in question, I am not familiar with the artist of the DJ behind this mix, and I certainly wasn't ready for what was about to happen!
I have never heard of Qualkommando or 100 10 0. And I wasn't ready for the madness that came at me through my speakers. At first there's an intro section, which seems to be OK, but then the madness starts, and it just doesn't stop there! And, just to let you know, my knowledge of the German language is limited, so I don't know what is being said throughout this set. I can guess, but let's not.
I am a fan of the earlier Terror, but can appreciate the newer sounding Terror. It is still brutal, rough, and hard as nails. Most of my friends could not comprehend that this is called music, but they are idiots. It is music, and sometimes it is just glorious. And this mix, as weird as it might be, has got something in it that I like. It's got a certain nostalgia factor, which I was glad to discover.
But now the big question: what records are in this mix? As I've not heard of Qualkommando before, the tracklist does nothing for me.
Gabbo - Willkommen Bei Den Gabbers
IgoA - Ich Höre Was (Qualkommando Remix)
IgoA - Zur Rechten Zeit Am Rechten Ort
Qualkommando - Bassbox
Qualkommando - Die Bestrafung
Qualkommando - Genickbruch
Qualkommando - Terror Worldwide
Qualkommando - Schneekönig
Qualkommando - Outbreak
Qualkommando - Tollwut
Qualkommando - Was'n Los
Qualkommando - Folterabend
Qualkommando - Killing Me Softly
I've had this mix on repeat now, and it still doesn't make any sense to me. The songs themselves, the Germanic bits and bobs here and there, and even the titles of these songs. What the hell does Schneekönig mean, or Genickbruch? I'm not even trying to pronounce them, as it is too difficult, and I don't want to butcher the language.
But it is an interesting mix, that's for sure. It's different, quirky, and very intoxicating. Sometimes music doesn't need to make sense, as long as it's interesting to listen to. Expand your knowledge and views on the music you listen to, and listen to stuff you wouldn't normally listen to. It can be fun.
This mix is beautiful, yet destroying your eardrums at the same time. Couldn't keep up with the pace, but as long as my arms can and my head, then we are covered. My feet cannot handle the beat anymore, but who cares about them anyway?
It's a jolly good listen to. Something different, something extraordinary. And very, very filthy.
The best track starts around 42 minutes. If anyone knows the title of that song, that would be appreciated (I know there's a tracklist, but for the life of me, I could not determine which song it is!).
It's a solid appreciation mix. That's to say the least lol. Now I need to clean my ears, as they are still bleeding.
