1994/95 Breakbeat/happy hardcore vol. 3 (2023)


Let's go back in time, roughly 30 years back in time. 1994 and 1995, do you remember those glorious years? Were you even alive when these two years happened? Would be interesting to find out if a) you were alive and b) if you actually remember the music from those years. I actually do, and it's not just because I keep on finding these mixes on Soundcloud. But it's certainly made easier to remember the tracks from the 90s. Today's mix was uploaded 2 days ago by ANDY PAV, and it's focussed on those 2 years, and the Breakbeat/Happy Hardcore anthems from those years.

Not all of them, otherwise the mix would be days long. Only a handful, and when I say a handful, I mean 13 records. And whenever I see a mix by ANDY, I know it's going to be a good one. This time he's outdone himself, and filled it with 13 records I've not seen and probably heard before. There are songs in here which versions I've not encountered before, so it's going to be a good listening session.


I've got to listen to something for the next 2 hours, so I thought I'd give this fresh new mix a go. And I wasn't disappointed. ANDY PAV (should it be all caps or not?) has given us another amazing mix, and they are certainly interesting to listen to. As mentioned before, I might know other versions of these songs, but not the ones used by ANDY. Expanding my horizon, right?


  1. Frantic & Impulse - Spiced Up

  2. Format - The Stomper

  3. The Dok - I Want You

  4. Edit V - Burning Love

  5. Druid & Vinylgroover - Summertime Vibe 94 (The North End Mix)

  6. DJ Brisk - Make It Rough

  7. DJ Seduction - Drop The Bass (Vibes & Wishdokta Mix)

  8. Nzo & Invincible - Funky Sensation (Billy Bunter & JDS Mix)

  9. DJ Hood - NRG

  10. Storm Syndicut - Hold Me In Your Arms (Jimmy J & Cru-L-T Mix)

  11. DJ Mystical - Striking Distance

  12. DJ Red Alert & Mike Slammer - In Effect (DJ Sy, Unknown & Temptation Mix)

  13. DJ Slam - Influence


Well, maybe technically speaking I wasn't telling the truth. I know one song, which is 'Funky Sensation', mixed by Billy Bunter and JDS. That's the only song I know. Woop die doo!


It has been an interesting hour, and the tunes are all solid. Just what I needed to hear. We started today with some early Terror, and now this mix. I am fully focussed on the 90s today, and I love it. ANDYs mix is a tight one, with a lot of epic tunes, and it has already received positive feedback, and many likes and reposts, but that's all because it's a solid mix. He never disappoints. He always, and I mean always, delivers.


Another outstanding mix with classic anthems you don't hear or see that often. Well, I clearly didn't recognise most of them, or maybe I'm not paying attention. Blame me anyway,.


What is there to say? A blinding mix with stunning anthems. I don't know what kind of negative criticism I need to give? I honestly cannot think of anything. If you know a reason why I should dislike this mix, do tell (by leaving a comment below).


Best record? Oh, tricky one. 'In Effect', as I do love the original, and this version is cool too. Not as cool as the Slipmatt remix, but close enough.


OK OK, I found a reason why I should dislike this mix! The download is available (for free), but the file size is 633 MB! Damn son, you a big one!
