DJ A.K. - 92 - 94 Breakbeat Hardcore & Jungle Mix 14.10.23
I woke up today, knowing what I know now. The weekend has emerged, and I need something to listen to whilst doing the chores. They are always dreadful to do, and if you put on the standard radio stations, they are filled with dross. Boring music. Songs you hear 24/7, at least being played 36974 times a day. I needed something with a bit more energy, a bit more nostalgic, and a bit that gives me just the right amount of bodily movement (external, not internal). And you know which channel I have to visit, to get my daily fix? You damn right, it's DJ A.K.'s page!
DJ A.K. always delivers, and with his latest mix, he takes us back to 1992, 1993, and 1994. I have not encountered a mix yet by A.K. which wasn't superb. They have all been amazing so far, and he's very active on Soundcloud. Blink, and he's already added a new mix. It's a non stop stream of excellent mixes, and his latest is focussed on those 3 years, and the music that was released back then. Yes, it's packed with Breakbeat Hardcore and Jungle anthems. You'll love it!
As always, he selected a few records, and mixed them together. But knowing him, they are the best of the best. And after listening to this mix once, I knew that he did exactly that! The tracks are solid as a rock, and they are timeless pieces of Rave history. They made the scene as big as it was to become, and they were influential records for generations to come. A solid selection, but I would not have doubted that A.K. would provide us only with the best of the best.

Just looking at the tracklist gives you goosebumps. A few records stand out, that's for sure, and when Red Alert and Mike Slammer records are on, the whole room changes: the atmosphere goes insane! I start dancing like there's no tomorrow! Their tracks are just masterpieces. They should be on display in a museum, for all to see, and hear.
From the start the pace is set, and the tunes will get darker over time. To start with 'Grand National' and to end with 'Valley Of The Shadows', you know shit is about to go down!
And it does go down. It's hit after hit, and they are so damn good: if you were to close your eyes, you can imagine being back in the 90s again, raving at this obscure venue, raving until the cops turn up, and tell you to do one. The music is just so damn rough and tough, and DJ A.K.s selection is just perfect. The right speed, the right amount of power behind each track, and if you add them into an hour and 21 minute long mix, you get a beautiful mix you should definitely check out.
As mentioned, Red Alert and Mike Slammer songs are currently my favourite ones. Especially 'Ruffer!!!'. Boy, when that hits, it hits HARD. They made the songs so damn good, and some go so damn fast, it's like it goes from 'normal' to 'hyper' in a second. Very influential records, and very influential producers.
Only love and appreciation, but that's just my standard response to an A.K. mix. But when does he disappoint us? Never. He always delivers excellent mixes, and he should get all the recognition on Soundcloud. Go and play all of his mixes. He's got tons of them , so have fun!
