1993 Vol 2 (2023)

It is Friday, time to relax. And have I got a mix for you all today? I won't be active this weekend, as I'll be at our friends wedding, so I will be entertained (hopefully), so you just have to scour the internet yourself for awesome music, but if you do find mixes that I could be interested in, make sure you share them via here, Facebook, Twitter, and all the other pages. But for now, let's go back in time, to the year of our Lord 1993, and let's be entertained by the mix made by someone called DareErickson.

The year 1993 is a significant year for me. Yes, I was only 10 years old (or young, depending on how you judge age), but I slowly grew into Hardcore music. Mainly the Hardcore Techno music known in the Netherlands (or Gabber), but it paved the way for me to discover the rougher and tougher styles out there. The UK Hardcore, Jungle, Breakbeat Hardcore music would only become apparent at a later stage in my life, but without 1993, I would not have discovered it.

I do love music from the year 1993. It is glorious. It is still rough and tough, but it is getting more and more polished through the years. 1993 was the year for me when music became more interesting, and the UK side of the rave spectrum is still a largely unknown bit in my musical knowledge. So whenever I spot mixes focussed on specific years, I immediately jump on it, and have to give it a go. The same applies to this mix, hence why I am talking about it now.

  1. On 1 Crew - The Shuffle

  2. DJ Smokey Joe - Kiss My Neck

  3. Aurora - Firin' On All Cylinders

  4. DJ Seduction - Feels So Good

  5. Nookie - Gonna Be Alright (Cloud9 Remix)

  6. Static Substance - Ghetto People

  7. D-Force - Ruff!!!

  8. DJ Red Alert & Mike Slammer - In Effect

  9. 20 Hurts - Stay At Home?

  10. Aphrodite - Raw Motion

  11. Orca - 4AM (Remix 2)

  12. DJ Solo - Axis

  13. Slam - Looking Into The Light

  14. DJs Unknown - Vol 1 (Mix 2)

This is an easy listening mix. Time will fly by before you know it, and acknowledge it. The tracks selected are really dope as fuck, and it's been carefully mixed together by DareErickson. His mix is really great, really enjoyed it.

Only 54 minutes long, but it packs a punch. It makes you want to go out and rave. The heat might make it unbearable, but who cares? Glowsticks everywhere, laser lights, banging sound systems, and stroboscopes blinding you. And preferably an underground location. If that's what you are going to be doing this weekend, enjoy it as much as you can!

A solid mix. The hour has flown by, and the selection might be short, but they are all powerful anthems that have stood the test of time, and have become classics. Especially when 'In Effect' kicks in. What an all time classic anthem. Yes, it's played in nearly every oldskool focussed set, but it is oh so worth it.

A solid mix. Got nothing but positive vibes going through me now. The only regret I've got is the fact that I was born in 1983. Too young to have witnessed the UK Hardcore scene when it was at its peak. And I was born in the wrong country too!

Anyone build a time machine yet? If so, can I use it? I want to go back to 1993!
