Club X Tribute (100 Tracks Live! In The Mix) (2020)

Club X. A name. A legendary name of a club I've never been to. Yes, I have been to Belgium to party during the late 90s and early 2000s, but never to Club X. Even thought I owned a few of their CD compilations, I never had the opportunity to experience what many have, during those glorious years, and by the time I could have gone, the club closed down due to certain reasons (which most of us are familiar with). The club name itself stayed alive, even after its closure, and parties are still thrown, to keep the legacy alive, but the club and the 90s atmosphere are no longer.

Like most clubs in the 90s, Club X had a reputation, and also a sound linked to it. Clubs in Rotterdam had this Rotterdam style, Amsterdam the A'dam sound, and clubs in Limburg, well, can't really think if clubs had a distinctive sound. And Belgian clubs certainly had a sound linked to each and every one of them. You knew a song was a Club X song or an Atmoz song or any other club. But obviously Club X's focus was Hardcore. Hardcore was the style that made it big, and gave it a reputation. And to many it's still considered as a memorable location, and many memories have been generated there. Oh, how I wish I had friends who would go there back then. Mine only went to Club/House nights, never Hardcore. Hence why I went to Mysteryland 1998 Outdoor on my own, because none of them were into Hardcore and thought it was just a phase. Oh how wrong they were.

You can still buy those Club X CDs on Ebay or other online stores, or you can find them on Soundcloud, YouTube etc. And you can find a few appreciation mixes online. One of them caught my eye: a mix by DJ Epyx, who's mix 2 hour and 45 minutes long and contains 100 tracks that you would have heard if you were on the dancefloor during the 90s in Club X. So this mix is taking us back to the 90s, and for those who were lucky enough to go, to Club X. 100 records. Who doesn't want to hear that?

This tracklist is just seriously gorgeous. For a gabber/Hardcore fanatic, this is my kryptonite. This is literally everything I loved in the 90s. I would say that at least 97% of these tracks were on my radar during the 90s, and we played over and over (on cassettes or CDs). This mix literally defines my youth, the years when I experienced with many styles and genres, but Hardcore stuck with me the most. DJ Epyx, wicked tracklist.

Even in 2022 I can say that I don't know EVERY SINGLE record ever released, so even in this mix there were a few I've not heard at all. But those are just a handful of songs. A proper die-hard Hardcore fanatic knows these and loves these. A few stinkers in here as well, but that's to be expected. You want an example? Well, I've never understood 'Flesh Is The Fever'. Probably one of my least favourite Hardcore songs of all time. Just don't feel it.

But what I do feel, is delighted. To hear these classics crammed into one mix is just glorious. And I feel sad at the same time. I wish I ventured into club nights a bit more in the 90s. It seems I've missed out on a shit ton of great nights. No drivers license or any mode of transport or friends who were into this, so my nights out were mostly restricted to whichever club was the closest. With the odd exception, like Mysterland etc. But partying was only happening (for me) in Limburg, and I wish I ventured into the rest of the Benelux....

Is this mix perfection? Well, it's really close. I would say 90% close. A few really tiny mixing errors, and a few tracks which weren't really great, but besides that, a glorious selection of records. It's a flashback to the glorious 90s. And I spotted a post the other day where someone said 'the greatest decade ever had to be the 90s, for everything'. And in a strange way I do understand it. And this mix is certainly proof that the 90s Hardcore was, and still is, the greatest ever.

If you've got three hours of doing nothing, do something useful, and check this mix out. It's got good reviews on Soundcloud, and I would underline people's views. This is great. Really great!

Best records? T.N.T. with 'Kiss The Ground', and 'Brainwashkiller'. Two highly regarded songs that have stood the test of time.
