CASKETKRUSHER [Total Destruction Records] 🇳🇱 (2022)

It is Wednesday. Normally a day that takes forever, as it's in the middle of the week, and we are as far away from last Monday as we are to upcoming Friday. And that makes this day drag on a bit too long. Not when you have good music blasting through your speakers, and today I've got a mix so fresh, it is still moist and damp on the outside, and nice and warm on the inside. It's a mix made by CasketKrusher, the legendary DJ and producer who is known for his amazing work in keeping the early Hardcore sound alive. To me one of the most underrated artist in the scene, and someone who should receive more credit for his work.

We need a bit of fresh Hardcore. And no one does that better than CasketKrusher. A name I've been following for quite some time now, and whenever I do find a mix, I always share it. Most of his mixes are ace, and he certainly deserves a bigger stage. He's been on my radar for quite some time now, and whenever I do hear a mix, it always enhances my enthusiasm for new 'old' Hardcore/Gabber.

I am a huge fan of CasketKrusher and his label, Total Destruction Records. As mentioned before, he is one hard working dude who keeps on pushing the early Hardcore sound into our wonderful world. The early sound, in a fresh new way. New tracks with that distinctive 90s sound. Not always sure if it's him who's behind the releases (as he's got quite a few aliases) or others releasing songs on Total Destruction Records. But what I do know is that the music speaks to me. It appeals to me a lot.

For this radio station called Solid Sound FM he made a mix. And it's one you need to check. Curious to find out which songs are in the mix? No worries, TCD has got your back:

Such a sick looking tracklist. Not every track is known by yours truly, but after hearing this mix at least 3 times in a row, I can honestly say that these tracks blew me away. Those which I already knew of already did make me rave the hardest, but the few 'new' ones certainly made me question my interest in this label: do I spend enough time investigating what this label has to offer? Clearly not enough.

A very tasty mix. If you've never heard of Casketkrusher or his label and you love a bit of the early/oldskool sound, you will be in for a treat. You've missed out on so much, but it's never too late to catch up on everything you've missed. And this is one of those labels you MUST investigate some time in, to discover what they have been doing.

A splendid mix. And it was difficult to figure out my favourite track of this mix. There were three awesome tracks: 'Rock This', 'Psychopath', and 'House Time!' . You pick your favourite.

Get this down you right now, and why not download this mix too? Or, if you are feeling generous, why not support Casketkrusher and his label?
