Addict - Millenium Mayhem (2019)

It's Christmas everyone! Hope you are enjoying the festive day so far. I know I have. Been treated to a few nice presents, and more are coming my way. But so far I've been spoiled. One of the presents I've found was even for free on Soundcloud! A Millennium Hardcore focussed mix, by Addict! Now, normally I would let mixes pass when there's no tracklist, but Addict was so kind to add one today, so thanks for that. And also, seeing as I'm a raver since 1993, I'd rather spend my Christmas day listening to Hardcore. Who doesn't want to hear that?

I know I'm probably the only one reviewing today, but seeing as I've got plenty of time spare (what else to do? stuff your face and the turkey, and drink until you go nuts), so I thought it would be nicer to write a review about an excellent bit of Hardcore history. Millennium Hardcore is still my favourite kind of Hardcore, and even to this day it keeps me entertained. I find that the music released back around the Millennium, now nearly 20 years ago, was superb. Quality was astonishing, and it held its strength, even all these years later.

DJ Addict's mix contains a lot of excellent tunes. But a few were unknowns to me, hence why I asked for a tracklist. And what I got, was a huge grin on my face. I looked like Farther Christmas, but without the face fungus.

02. Promo - Tunnel Vision

09. Tha Playah - I Call The Shots

10. Nitrogenetics - Inside Your Head

13. Neophyte Records -Neophyte Mashup 2

14. Evil Activities - No Place To Hide

15. Tha Playah - Why So Serious

16. Angerfist - Street Fighter (Audiofreq Remix)

17. Tha Playah - My Misery

It's good that I'm writing this review: this means that the wife is cooking the turkey, and I do not need to assist her. Thanks Addict, for making my Christmas a good 'un!

Let me start by saying that I never heard the first two records before. Yes, I am a Promo fan, but never come across these anthems before. I haven't got ALL his albums, to be fair. But when I heard these two, I knew I was going to be in for a treat. And boy, the mix was extremely good. But the best record has to be the first two. Having Star Wars references in your song is just epic. Come on, who disagrees? If you do, fuck off.

A few small cross fading errors, but nothing major. Enjoy this mix as much as I have. It really made me happy, and I was immediately thinking of the massive CD collection I had around the Millennium, and how much guilders/euros I've spent on buying these. I think it's about time to blow the dust of them, and start raving again. And also to buy all Promo albums. How I missed these two is beyond me.

Thanks Addict for composing the mix, and making the tracklist!

Merry Christmas, my fellow ravers!
