Eufeion Presents - In 2 The Mix 5 (Happy Hardcore Classics 1) (2019)
Eufeion is back with a brand spanking new mix! The fifth instalment of his 'In 2 The Mix' has landed on Soundcloud a month ago, and I'm really delighted to announce this mix to you all! I know you all like a bit of Happy Hardcore, and you never guess what the main theme of this mix is? Correct, Happy Hardcore. The 90s style that we all miss and love.
Before we continue talking about this mix, I have to say that I tried my best to find the previous mixes on Eufeion's Soundcloud page, but couldn't find them? I know he did a label showcase mix, and a general UK Hardcore mix, but the others I'm not sure off. I hope he does leave them somewhere, because I love this 'In 2 The Mix' concept. Not always the same style of mix, always different. Keeping it fresh and exciting.
Back to the mix. Oh, and I found the location where you can get the other mixes from (Dropbox). Click HERE if you want to see the other mixes. Now let's focus on the current mix. It's Happy Hardcore. Oh yes. But seeing as I do know and love Happy Hardcore, the one thing I noticed immediately was the fact that these are all UK Happy Hardcore records. Does that make this mix a bad one? Absolutely not. More refreshing. The majority of HH mixes are always Dutch focussed, but to hear a nice UK version is more my cup of tea.
It also contains one of the most overrated records of all time, but that's just my personal opinion. Now's the time (see, an Oldskool Happy Hardcore pun) to show you the tracklist.
01. Midas - Taken From The Groove
02. Two Ruff - Bouncing Darkness
03. Juicy Cuts 1 - Love U More (Remix)
04. Strippey & DJ Eff - Getcha Some More
05. Sy & Unknown - Techno Harmony
06. Billy Bunter & JDS - Come Alive (Remix)
07. Hixxy & Sharkey - Waiting To Get High
08. Juicy Cuts 5 - Love Of My Life (Remix)
09. Eruption - Let The Music
10. Hixxy & Sharkey - Toytown
11. Sy & Unknown - Move Your Body
12. Juicy Cuts 3 - Rainbow High In The Sky (Remix)
13. Billy Bunter - Hop On The Dancefloor
14. Sy & Unknown - Love For 95
15. Seduction - Imagination
I missed out on a lot of wicked music during the 90s. When I grew up in the Netherlands we did hear a few UK Happy Hardcore tunes, but the majority was focussed on the continent's perspective of Happy Hardcore. So I did miss out on a lot. Thankfully I can find mixes like this one on Soundcloud and get educated.
The mix starts with a wicked record by Midas, and this flow continues throughout the mix. This cheerful, cheeky, happy, and uplifting vibe is linked to most of the tunes. That's why I like it so much: it's innocent. It's pure. It's happy. It's everything we need to have in music. Yes, aggressive music can be a good outlet for stress and anxiety, but happy can take you to places you've not been to before.
OK, I reckon you want to know my least favourite record in this mix? It's 'Toytown', an all time classic for the UK Hardcore massive. Not for me, I'm just not feeling the vibes. It's a nice record, but not the best. Mine has got to be 'Let The Music', 1000 times better.
Eufeion, do not stop making these mixes. I am really enjoying them. What will your next mix contain? It's always a surprise, a lovely surprise! More are needed, so please keep them coming!
