Colin H - This Was Meant To Be A Traxtorm Mix - September 2020
I've been very busy this week, hence why there's not been a review from me in about 4 days. Work has taken over everything, and that's a positive: as long as I'm busy, I'm OK. But today I had to get back online, and share this mix with you all. And yes, it's yet another Hardcore mix, which might seem a tad boring, but you know deep down inside that you want to hear it. You want to hear it. I want you to acknowledge it. And there's no shame in it: many others like you have got the same feelings. Some even turned their backs to the scene, but when they see the tracklist of this mix, it will make them fancy Hardcore once again.
The mix today was made by someone called Colin H. Never heard or seen his name before, but hey ho, that's life. And the mix, if you haven't figured it already, is a Traxtorm mix. Or it should have been, but it isn't just exclusively Traxtorm. A friend of him asked him to do a Traxtorm mix, and other records slipped in. So you get Traxtorm and a bit more. How's that sounding?
The mix is an hour and 40 minutes, and once you look at the tracklist, you will be hooked. Oh God, I do miss the Millennium Hardcore sound so much, its indescribable. I've grown up with this sound, and sometimes I feel that time is just flying too damn fast. When I was a wee young lad, I did buy a lot of Traxtorm albums, and have devoured them. I've even seen a few of its artists roster play, that was awesome. It's still a highly regarded label with many memorable records under its belt. Hence my enthusiasm when I saw this mix.
So, let's see what Colin H has in store for us.

Well, I was expecting a few Tommyknocker records, but the majority of the records played, are his records. I do appreciate Tommyknocker's music from around the Millennium: his style always excited me the most. His approach to Hardcore made it sound like next level stuff. And it has stood the test of time. But it's not just him in this mix. There are a few other artists you might like, like DJ Mad Dog, The Outside Agency, The Stunned Guys, Art Of Fighters, etc.
I have to congratulate Colin H for making this wicked mix. I've come across many Traxtorm mixes, and I'm always pleased to hear them. The records they released were truly excellent, and capture the scene as its peak. It was dominating the whole world, and Traxtorm was one of the finest labels out there.
In this mix we get the finest Hardcore from 2000, and also a few Industrial Hardcore anthems.
Which record did make me rave the hardest? Well, there are a few contenders, like 'Your Choice', 'Demolition', 'Fuck The Titties', 'T-2002'. 'The Nutrition', 'Showtime', but all my love goes to the main record of this mix: 'The Aftermath'. One of the scene's finest anthems ever made. And that's a statement. An underrated classic that still has the power to demolish dance floors all over the world. Or, in 2020/2021 terms, destroy living rooms and bedrooms.
A few small mixing errors, but seriously nothing major.Hence why this mix gets the highest score from me.
