Beukage. Not a word you hear very often. Or even ever. It's a weird Dutch 'word'. But even though it doesn't make any sense, I do know what it means (I think). In short, it just means 'hard tracks'. As in, they are hard as nails. Imagine a lot of BPMs, sick bass and beats. And when required, filled with melodies. But that's not always needed. Sometimes you just need something filthy, hard, and rough. Melodies? Who needs those? But in this mix the melody plays a huge part, so we'll leave that in.
This mix has flown under the radar on Soundcloud, and only has a few plays, but by looking at the tracklist there's no reason to why it hasn't got more plays. The tracklist looks good, and has got some heavy hitters. And all tracks are Millennium Hardcore anthems, so no real reason as to why the plays are not higher than expected.
Maybe people are getting fed up? Or maybe it's not promoted? Don't know. I remain a Millennium Hardcore fanatic, so I will move out of my way to find stuff on Soundcloud, hence why I saw this mix and thought it would be a good one to share with everyone.
Don't know a single thing about the DJ in question (Reminisce), so let's go straight to the tracklist:
Dione - The Way Is Shut (Remastered)
Ophidian - Butterfly
Amnesys - Worldwide Crisis
Masters Of Ceremony - Rocking With The Best
Art Of Fighters & Tommyknocker - Follow Me
Angels Of Darkness - Cold As Ice (Tha Playah Remix)
Tommyknocker - Domination
Evil Activities & The Viper - Raw To The Floor
Tha Playah & Nosferatu - Requiem Of The Fallen
Amnesys - I Justified
Tha Playah - Hit 'Em (Evil Activities & The Viper Remix)
Tommyknocker - Crunk
Dune - Hardcore Vibes (The Viper's Mashup)
Kasparov - Pessa Pessa Hooligan Mash-up
Nosferatu - Bloodlust
Mad Dog & Tommyknocker - DJ Tool 1
Masters Of Ceremony - Dirt
Tommyknocker - Demolition (Evil Activities & Lenny Dee Remix)
The tracklist looks good, and the tracks are solid. A good selection that will certainly keep the energy level way up high. There's a stinker in here that gives me no energy whatsoever, but we will talk about that one in a minute.
Nah, let's talk about it now. Kasparov's song isn't my cup of tea. Horrible track.
Now we've got that out of the way, let's talk about the 17 other tracks. Solid as a rock, and still my favourite songs from around 2000. Or in that decade. Reminisce has selected a very good selection of tracks. No question about that. Kasparov's song is debatable, but hey ho, can't get them all right all the time?!
The mix isn't flawless. It's enjoyable, but still got a few tiny mixing errors/fading errors.
If you just want no nonsense Hardcore, go ahead and check this mix out. Let the BPMs come at you through your speakers. It's not the best Millennium mix out there, but still enjoyable.
