DJ Jedi Live @ Calling The Hardcore November 2018

I have seen the name DJ Jedi before. Not in a Star Wars film (unless they have created a new character in the last Jedi), but I've read so many positive reviews about him. Sadly never had the opportunity to hear anything mixed by him, but when Glowkid reposted this on Soundcloud, my missing out days changed. I finally got the opportunity to hear what this DJ has to offer. And it's great.

This is a liveset recorded in Brighton on the 9th of November, and the three main acts, boy, if you have got any of these on your line-up, you know they will cause damage. Seduction? SS? 2 Bad Mice? And all this and more for only a fiver? If my organs were not playing up, I would have taken a train to Brighton just to experience this!

DJ Jedi's set contains oldskool Hardcore classics from 1992 and 1993. Alongside him behind the decks you have got MC Strict. So it's all about the oldskool today! Let me show you the tracklist.

01. Joint Project - Good Feeling

02. Global Method - Mars Needs Women (DJ Seduction Remix)

03. Unknown Artist - Hypertension (Danse City)

04. Decktition - Bring The Noise

05. Jack Smooth & Spencer T - Happy Nonsense

06. Turbo Sound - Volume 1 (A1)

07. Yolk - Bish Bosh

08. Unknown Artist - MP 001 (B1)

09. E'Dam - Skratch The Beat

10. Krome & Time - Manic Stampede

11. Orca - Alive & Kickin

12. DJ Jedi - Brainwashed

13. DJ B & EZM - Break Of Dawn

14. Miranda - Dance To The Rhythm

15. Addiction - Make My Body Move

16. DJ Dynamic & DJ Phuturist - Future 9T3

17. Tango & Fallout - Recoil

18. Johnny Jungle - Twilight (Bad Influence Mix)

19. Jimmy J & Cru-L-T - Six Days (Try Unity Cover Version)

If you are one of those people who have looked and thought 'let's play this out loud', let me warn you: the mic level of the MC is extremely high. And if you are prepared, you will get the same shock as yours truly: his vocals came crashing through my speakers! Could be the recording level, or the actual mic level. But be warned.

I now understand the hype. I fully understand the fans. DJ Jedi has delivered an awesome Underground Oldskool Hardcore set. My first introduction into his wonderful world, and it's been a a good one. Really enjoyed this vinyl only set. And I really enjoyed each and every tune selected by DJ Jedi.

I can't find anything negative about this set. Yeah, the mic level of the MC is absolutely dreadful, but still manageable. It becomes an issue if you've got the volume way up. But if you don't, the MC doesn't ruin the set as much as expected.

Check this out, let this dominate your weekend!
