Early Hardcore | Strictly BZRK Records | Mix 271 (2021)

Can't have a weekend without Hardcore music, am I right? And today isn't an exception: every weekend it's Hardcore time. Today's mix is presented by Raving Madness, and contains records from the mighty label BZRK Records, which is run by the legendary DJ Buzz Fuzz. You might have seen or heard his name before. He's well known to the oldskool legends, the oldskool lovers. He has made a shit ton of wicked records over the years, and his label released a lot of those too. In this 27 minute long mix you get ta few of the finest records released on BZRK, all mixed together tightly. What else is there to wish for on this Saturday, right?

It is hard to keep up which alias falls under the Buzz Fuzz brand. He's had a few over the years, like Bertocucci Feranzano (never knew that Nina Feranzano was The Prophet!), Bigguz Dickuzz, Tony Salmonella, Pino D'Ambini, and many more. And you can hear a few records made by these aliases in this mix, and a few more. This mix immediately takes me back to my youth, when BZRK records released these anthems, and they found their way onto many compilations. But I fully understand why these were everywhere: these tracks were (and still are) the bomb!

An underrated label perhaps? You don't see many BZRK dedication mixes. The label deserves so much more credit for what they have released, and thankfully Raving Madness did the label justice. A short but very interesting and entertaining mix. But, you might wonder, which records are in this mix? These are the ones selected and mixed by Raving Madness:

  1. Nina Feranzano & Buzz Fuzz - Keep It Up (Original Mix)

  2. Bertocucci Feranzano - Sax B4 Dinner

  3. Public Domain - In The House (Buzz Fuzz Mix)

  4. Public Domain - Rock This Joint (Arjuna Mix)

  5. Bertocucci Feranzano & Tony Salmonelli - Class Axion - Take 2

  6. Raving Madness & Skill Behaviour - Dreams

  7. Tony Salmonelli - Class Axion Take 1

  8. E-Rick &Tactic - Wanna Dance

  9. Tony Salmonelli - Once Again (Original Mix)

  10. Ramirez - Apocalixis (Buzzy Goes BZRK Mix)

  11. Dr. Phil Omanski - BZRK Feelings (Toni Salmonelli Mix)

  12. Wasting Program - Bring That Shit Back (Yves Remix)

  13. Pino D'Ambini - Up & Down - Ballz (Buzzy Goes BZRK Mix)

  14. DJ Promo - Bring It Raw

These are classics. Without a shadow of a doubt. Fight me in the comments if you do not think these are classics. These records shaped the genre for good. They were as fresh as the day they were released, and maintain their strength, many years after them being released. Yes, they might have a 90s vibe surrounding it, but that vibe will never die. Like Hardcore, it never dies.

The mix is short, sweet, and powerful. On one hand I hate the length of this mix, because it's too damn short, but on the other hand, you get everything you need in 27 minutes. 14 extremely fine Hardcore anthems. So I shouldn't moan about the length, because it's not all about the length, it's about the punch And this mix packs a punch, trust me.

All jokes aside, this is a wicked mix. Really enjoyed it. And am I wrong in asking if the 6th record in this mix is made by the maker of this mix too? A tad confused, but hopefully you can help me out.

Too many records to choose from. They are all wicked. Solid as a rock. But 'Up & Down - Ballz' is just one memorable anthem. Probably the finest released on BZRK records. Closely followed by 'Apocalixis'. Also a wicked anthem.

Get your Hardcore fix, and play this mix right now!
