Dougal & Gammer Tribute (2022)
I might be completely out of my mind, but did I read a post the other day, saying that Dougal and Gammer are going to make music again? Was that reality, or was it a dream? Nowadays you never know, but you hope it wasn't an April fools joke. Hopefully that will happen, and we relive the glorious days. The days when Dougal & Gammer rocked the dancefloors all over the UK and the charts. But until the day we hear new music, let's focus on what they made, and what has brought us all together closer on the dancefloors...
So today, when I browsed the internet, I found a brand new mix. One made by a DJ who only sporadically goes on Soundcloud. There's only one other mix made and uploaded, and that was the Scott Brown appreciation mix from 3 years ago. For three years Kylemixes has been quiet, but now has returned with a mix dedicated to one of the glorious duos from the UK Hardcore scene, Dougal and Gammer.
As you are also aware, I'm a huge fan of the early D&G stuff. The early stuff is just the best. Just what the scene needed. And I've also purchased a lot of their stuff, including the 'best of' CD, and Gammer's own CD. Huge fan of their approach to UK Hardcore, and their take on it. I'm not the only one who still adores the sound of D&G, right? Maybe that's why they are getting back in the studio? It's about bloody time!
So which 18 records did Kylemixes choose for this dedication mix? Well, these:
Dougal & Gammer feat Jenna - Heaven On Earth
Dougal & Gammer - Addiction
Dougal & Gammer - Crack Whore
Dougal & Gammer feat Lisa Marie - How Did I Get Here
Dougal & Gammer - Rock The Dancefloor
Dougal & Gammer - 3000 Cycles
Dougal & Gammer - Pump Up The Noise
Dougal & Gammer feat Jenna - Fires In The Sky
Dougal & Gammer - The 6th Gate
Dougal & Gammer - Higher Than Heaven
Dougal & Gammer feat Lisa Marie - Tell Me A Story
Dougal & Gammer - Make Some Noise
Dougal & Gammer - Get Hype
Dougal & Gammer feat Stefan B - Fall From The Stars
Dougal & Gammer - Distorted Visions
Dougal & Gammer feat MC Smiley & Jenna - Ordinary People
Dougal & Gammer - Stand & Stare (Kick Ya Legs)
Dougal & Gammer - Stomp
So, that happened. If you are like me, and you love the D&G sound, you will know that this mix won't disappoint you. It's nicely mixed together, and not insanely complicated like Gammer normally mixes stuff together (500 tracks in 10 seconds). Instead, you get a nicely composed mix. An hour and a half long, and only 18 records. So be ready for D&G overload!!!
I do love their music when it's all melodic, and heavenly. But what appeals the most to me is their usage of vocalists, especially female vocalists, like Jenna and Lisa Marie. My God, these vocalists have got the voices of angels! And D&G made good use of them: many of their biggest hits are in collaboration with vocalists. And to me, those songs always rock the hardest.
Especially 'Tell Me A Story'. Can't go to a rave and hear this without singing along. Come on, you aren't that stupid. You need to scream these lyrics, and you scream them out loud!
A fantastic mix. If it takes kylemixes 3 years for each mix, then my advice would be 'take as much time as you need'. Which dedication mix will be next? Can''t wait. Only 1094 days until the next mix!
