Carlstar - Modern Happy Hardcore Mix (2024)


Earlier in the week I was listening to a lot of oldschool Happy Hardcore mixes, with songs from the 90s. And there were a few UK Hardcore mixes too I discovered, all with songs from the 90s or a tad later. But now it's time for me to let you listen to some new, modern Happy Hardcore/UK Hardcore. Some really new and exciting, if you are into that kind of music. I'm one of those people, I'll listen to anything, and when this cropped up on my timeline, I had to give it a listen. And now, here's the review!

I do listen to literally everything, and there are styles out there I should pay more attention to. The mix you are about to listen to, contains records I should have listened to before. The scene is still alive and kicking, and has got excellent songs to listen to. The tracks selected for this mix are by well known names, and a few unknowns, but they are upcoming artists, you will see their names more in the future.


Carlstar, a name I've not seen or heard before (I think), has made this mix. It's got modern Happy Hardcore anthems, and that alone sounds very interesting. And once you had a look at the tracklist, you will immediately press play, and you'll thank me after, for making you aware of this mix. It's only 53 minutes long, and I know you've got an hour spare today, so why not give this a go?

  2. Impulse Riders - Is It Me

  22. Skinny & Darwin - Like A Boulder

  23. Brisk & Darwin vs 3Star - You Can Dance

  24. Darwin x Jack In Box - Back 2 The Club


There are so much potential in this mix, these tracks should get all the recognition they deserve, as they are all amazing records! And it's nice to see certain names still making 'modern' Happy Hardcore, names like Darwin, Skinny, Brisk, Jack In Box, etc.


Carlstar's selection is really cool, and if you go to his Soundcloud channel, it will show you links, showing you where you can buy these songs from. And he's done a great job with this mix. It's banger after banger. Certified club bangers! Well, not really club bangers, more rave bangers!


I thoroughly enjoyed this mix. Especially when 'C U Move' by Darwin & 3Star hits. Those vocals just do it all for me. That record just made me loose myself completely. But to be fair, throughout this mix it is hit after hit. It's been an interesting listen, and I'm happy to have discovered it.


Go and check this mix out, and give this modern Happy Hardcore a go. I am, so should you!


The only negative thing? The size of the download. 536 MB! That's a lot. But you do get a lot though!
