A Nightmare in Rotterdam | Warm-up mix Tommyknocker (2023)


I've never been to this event. But I've heard of it, and owned a few of their compilations. But I've never been. To this event, I mean. I have been to Rotterdam on many occasions, so the city ain't new to me. Half of my family is from Rotterdam, so maybe that's why I always had a connection to this event. And this year, as they existed for 30 years, they made sure the fans got what they deserved, went to the Ahoy in Rotterdam, and put on a wicked show. And the line-up was truly astonishing!

Tha Playah, Paul Elstak, Nosferatu, Neophyte, Mad Dog, Partyraiser, N-Vitral, Deadly Guns, Lars, Gizmo & The Darkraver, Euromasters, Rob & MC Joe, Rob Gee, Scott Brown, Panic, Ruffneck, The Viper, Endymion, and the man who made the promo mix (which I only found once the event took place), Tommyknocker. As cool as the main area looked, I would have been in the Hall Of Legends the whole night. That's where the magic happens (in my opinion). And Tommyknocker would have been one of the DJs I would like to see, as his music is truly awesome. This mix proves us yet again why he's a boss!


For this promo mix he pulled out the biggest and baddest songs, and the result is an hour of pure pleasure. Tommyknocker really went nuts, and the songs are amazing to listen to, as they are all classics. Most of these records are Millennium focussed Hardcore anthems, but every so often he takes us back to the 90s. And it blends in nicely. But, to stay true to the artist, he chose most of his own records, which we also love and appreciate a lot, and which most of them have become timeless classics.

The list is as solid as you want it to be. And he's got the big hits in here. Hit after hit is thrown at you, and it's an hour of pure pleasure. But leave that up to Tommyknocker to provide us with the finest Hardcore anthems ever made.


I really loved each track. And it's cool to hear him play old to new to old to new to old. He doesn't care, he's having fun. He's having a blast, and you can tell. And to end with 'Riot In NY', yeah, solid choice.


There's a plethora of amazing records in here, and I do adore 'Drop It', 'Twisted World', 'Criminal', but the one that gets the most love from me, has got to be the dopest Hardcore track ever made: 'The Aftermath'. What an underrated yet glorious anthem. We should honour Tommyknocker for making this awesome sounding classic.


It's like any other Tommyknocker mix: it's solid. It has got a lot of throwback memories, and the music was so much better many years ago. And Tommyknocker was certainly the don, the big boss!
