'Dy5on' (Electrifying) [Mixed By M@rt!n-J] (2021)

Sometimes you find mixes online, and you know nothing about the artist. This is one of those mixes. You might be thinking this is all about Dyson hoovers, but you are wrong. I think this mix is much more enjoyable, more pleasant, compared to hoovering, right? Let's focus on today's mix, and the artist behind the songs, and the man behind the mix. You've all seen his name before, and he's a regular to this website, a loyal contributor. Don't know how he finds the time to keep making and uploading mixes, but he's non stop busy. A true busy bee, but a music entrepreneur.

But this mix isn't about M@rt!n-J, but about Dy5on. I seriously know nothing about this producer, but he/she has been a busy bee too, and has been working with Fracus and Darwin every so often, according to his/her Bandcamp page. That's all I know. But what I do know is that this producer has got a knack for making UK Hardcore in the same style as Fracus and Darwin. Hell, he makes it as good as them. There, I've said it.

I went into this mix blindfolded, but came out happy and excited to search for more. I'll do that after this review, but if you are looking for something that touches the earlier HU sound, look no further: Dy5on ticks all the boxes, and has got you covered. UK Happy Hardcore, very melodic, and euphoric. I instantaneously feel 10 years younger, and back home, in NL. That's where I discovered HU and their artist roster.

If you have not heard of Dy5on before but you are a fan of HU and UK Hardcore, sit back, and enjoy this mix. Obviously it has been mixed beautifully by M@rt!n-J, but you knew that already. He always delivers. He's like the Deliveroo driver for the UK Hardcore scene. And his deliveries are always flaming HOT!

How the hell have I not heard of this producer before, or never paid enough attention? After listening to this mix I'm fully in awe of this mix and each single song! What a fantastic producer, and how he/she has capture a sound so awesome, it should be more on the foreground of the UK Hardcore scene! We need more of this 'happier' UK Hardcore. This is truly wicked music, and has made my day even better!

It's the melodic stuff that does it for me. The earlier Fracus & Darwin sound, right? I am certainly not the only one out there that appreciates it. But it's good that it's still alive and kicking, and tweaked to still sound fresh, new, and unique in a way.

Dy5on has worked with a few wicked producers, and of course they are the mighty Fracus & Darwin, but also with vocalists, which I've not heard of, but also are impressed with. And I can sense that there's an obsession with Michael Mansion. Oh, I do always laugh about Michael Mansion and think of the Next Generation podcast, where Brisk or Fracus made a joke, but I can't remember what it was. Shit memory. But yeah, there's a few records by Michael Mansion, but a lot of originals. A wide variety for those looking for something cool and refreshing.

I am really happy about the discovery of this mix. My UK Hardcore heart has been brought back to life again, and wants to go back in time now. And rediscover the early HU sound, and discover more Dy5on. No, not the fucking hoovers, but this awesome producer. The producer that loves euphoric and melodic UK Hardcore anthems.

I am really impressed, happy, and in awe. I should go out more, and discover more artists I've overlooked or not even known of. This is a truly ace producer, and knows how to make excellent music. And let's not forget that Dy5on made a UK Hardcore version of Celine Dion's Deadpool song. Come on, that's just fucking ace!

This mix can only get 5 out of 5, because it deserves it. This has put a smile on my face, and it won't leave me for at least the next week or so.
