DJ Radium - Early Hardcore #1 ('91'92) - The Full Moon Sessions (2017)

Another day inside, another day in paradise. It's time for us all to go back in time, to a decade where we were still allowed to walk outside and rave: the 90s. Specifically, the early 90s. 1991 and 1992. And today's mix is made by a legend within the Hardcore scene: DJ Radium. This mix was made about 2 1/2 years ago, and it got praised by the listeners on Soundcloud. I found this by accident, so let's delve straight into this early 90s rave mix.

This mix is about an hour long, and has got the most underrated records in Hardcore history in them. Yes, you hear some of them over and over, but the majority are underrated classics. They should have a cult following. This sound is so unique and fresh, even in 2020 it still sounds so cool, and not even outdated. This is what gave us Hardcore in 2020. Obviously not every record selected by Radium is a genuine masterpiece, but the majority are.

The tracklist is missing a few records. If you are a die-hard early Hardcore fanatic, would you please be so kind to let us know which records they are, so we can fill in the empty gabs?

Look, when I say Early Hardcore, I mean this kind of music! Wow, Radium's mix is literally filled with Early Hardcore stuff. The roughest stuff out there. These anthems are nearly or are 30 years old. Just think about that. Think hard and deep about that. 30 years of Hardcore.

I can't believe that it's been nearly 30 years ago since I was introduced into the wonderful world we know as Hardcore. Thanks to Radium's mix I am back in my bedroom, as a teenager, playing Hardcore on a multi deck music tower. Or whatever they used to be called. And everything on tapes. I wasn't that quick on jumping on the next hype that was called Compact Discs. Cassettes all the way.

I can only give this legend credit for this excellent mix. It contains the roughest and toughest Early Hardcore anthems, and they are mixed together beautifully. No word of a lie, but I'm feeling the early vibes coming through the speakers. Fuck COVID-19. I will stay indoors and listen to Early Hardcore. Hell yeah.

Oh yeah, you can download this mix for free, so that's another bonus!
