DJ Jedi Live @ Calling The Hardcore Brighton July 2023

''Calling The Hardcore''. Well, I think I'm Hardcore enough, but unfortunately I've missed this event, which took place only 4 days ago, in Brighton. I was occupied anyway, so I had an excuse not to go. But after hearing one of the sets recorded on the night, I wish I went to this event instead. As you can see from the line-up flyer above, there are some big names on this list. Including the artist you are about to listen to, DJ Jedi. Not the first time his name appeared on this website, and certainly not the last.

Maybe he played a trick on me, a Jedi mind trick? Who knows what kind of trick he played, I couldn't care less. The more of his music, the merrier. And his mix contains a lot of excellent anthems, all from vinyl. All these oldskool Breakbeat anthems. The kind of Hardcore they don't make anymore like they used to.

I do love a bit of Breakbeat Hardcore, and his set is filled with excellent tunes by the biggest names. You will look at this tracklist, and you'll be amazed by the awesomeness of it all. You will not comprehend the power behind a few of these songs, unless you know of their existence, and you know that I'm not talking bollocks. Some of these records are genuinely amazing records that will stand the test of time.

A fabulous tracklist. But there's one track in this set that made me stop doing what I was doing, and had to rewind just to get a clear understanding of what I was listening to, and play it over and over.

I really loved the vibes coming at my through my speakers, but I'm guessing it would have been a billion times better, hearing it live. Standing there, on the dancefloor, hearing these tunes coming at you, at lightspeed. DJ Jedi does what he does best, and keeps people on their toes.

There were two tracks I didn't find cool, maybe because I don't find the lyrics/vocals a bit meh. 'The Power Within' and 'We Can Ride The Boogie'. MJs least favourite song for me, and yes, I know the lyrics weren't MJ singing it, but another vocalist, but still. Never liked the boogie. Never will like the boogie.

But what does get me on the dancefloor, and stomp the hardest? 'Feel The Energy' by Blame! Oh my days. Is this an insane track or what? The vocals just touched my soul, and I sat here, in awe, not realising what just had happened. Her vocals are insane, but the track in itself is also insane. Breakbeat Hardcore turned up to the max! I could listen to this track hours in a row, and it would still sound amazing.

A wonderful set, and maybe I should pay more attention to the world around me. When they call out the Hardcore, I should listen. I should be calling the Hardcore too!
