1NC1N - Early Rave Megamix (Live Recorded @ UNIT Breda 28-05-2022)

This is going to be a very busy day for me. I'm currently on my own, WFH, and my colleagues are or on training or on annual leave, which leaves me in charge of everything. And during this, I need something to keep me going. Something not too soft, or too boring. I need something motivational, something that captures my mood perfectly. And today it's Hardcore that I need. I am in dire need of Hardcore, especially 90s Hardcore, and guess what: I found a nice mix for you all. Why else would I be writing a review, just for fun? Muhaha, that's certainly not the case.

Now I know nothing about 1NC1N, or even the location where it was recorded (Unit in Breda), so I cannot comment about this. If you have some more information, please do share. Sharing is caring, remember?

Let's focus on the actual mix and the tracks. This was live recorded, so everything you hear is done live, and it's an Early Rave Megamix! 41 records in an hour long mix. Normally I would be a bit hesitant to call something a Megamix, but this certainly is one, and it does contain the biggest tracks of the 90s. All the tracks I grew up with. Wouldn't that be perfect to hear, on a day where I need a boost, more energy compared to normal? Would a mix with the coolest tracks be suitable on a day like today? The answer is a big 'YES'!

This is a very good looking tracklist, with a lot of big hitters. Tracks that will get you moving on the dancefloor, or wherever you are. You could be at work, or sitting at home, or still laying in bed. But you cannot deny the impact of these records, and slowly your body is moving to the beat. If not, are you a true gabber? A true Hardcore fanatic?

1NC1N has done a great job, playing all these at his own birthday event. Never heard of this artist nor this event, but if they played more like this, I would have happily gone there, and raved the night away. Big tracks, all crammed together beautifully.

At certain stages it does sound like he/she is rushing it, but you cannot do it slow and half hearted. You need to set the tone, and you need to keep the audience stomping the floor. And that's what happens throughout this mix. How can you sit still? I'm sitting here, a nearly 40 year old chap, enjoying it a lot, and bouncing my head up and down, and stomping my feet.

A good selection of songs, all big anthems from when I was a kid. This takes me back, and I feel happy again. Listening to those glorious Hardcore anthems on cassette with my 'My First Sony' walkman or CD player, and shitty headset. We've come a long way, haven't we?

If you want to take a trip down memory lane, and want to relive the glory days of 90s Hardcore, jump the bandwagon and let 1NC1N's birthday mix take you on that journey. You'll love it!

Best record? Well, heard it once on a Mysteryland CD, and it has remained my all time favourite Buzz Fuzz record: 'Just Another Humdrum'. Big underrated Hardcore anthem!
