Evolution Records Showcase (10.04.2017)
Only a day or so ago I reviewed a mix focussed on the magestic label Evolution Records, and DJ Audioholik reminded me on Facebook that he made a mix about 10 months ago, also a Evolution Records showcase mix. Normally I would respond by saying I am not reviewing two similar mixes, but in this case I couldn't let it go by. So here's the second Evolution Records mix review, and it's a good one.
The first one was a slamming mix, but this second one has got more records that I like, and missed in the first mix. The first being only 4 minutes longer, but containing less records. For this mix, Audioholik decided to use 24 of Scott's finest records. Scott being of course the King of UK Hardcore, Scott Brown. So what's in store for us all? 24 amazing records, a 1 hour and 15 minute long mix. And all focussed on Evolution Records and the UK Hardcore sound that emerged from it.
Is it any better or similar or worst than the first mix I reviewed, made by DJ M@rt!n-J? Well, you can compare, both have got tracklists, and here it goes:
01. Scott Brown - Out Of My Brain (Original Mix)
02. Scott Brown & Cat Knight - All About You (Original Mix)
03. Scott Brown - Push It (Music Please)
04. Plus System - Let's All Get Down (Original Mix)
05. Scott Brown - Definition Of A Bad Boy (Original Mix)
06. Plus System - Blue Anthem (Original Mix)
07. Scott Brown - Hardcore Is The Future (Original Mix)
08. Plus System - Do It Like We Do (Original Mix)
09. Scott Brown - Neckbreaker (Plus System Mix)
10. Plus System - This Is How We Do It (Original Mix)
11. Scott Brown - Hardcore Hustler (Hardcorevolution Mix)
12. Plus System - Serial Killer (Oirginal Mix)
13. Scott Brown - Protoplasm (Original Mix)
14. Plus System - Rhythm Machine (Original Mix)
15. Q-Tex - Like An Angel (Original Mix)
16. Scott Brown - Taking Drugs (Original Mix)
17. Plus System - Prince Of Darkness (Original Mix)
18. Scott Brown - We're Droppin' This (Scott Brown Mix)
19. Plus System - Make You Freak (Original Mix)
20. Scott Brown - Make The Beat Drop (Original Mix)
21. Plus System - Bassline Of The Century (Original Mix)
22. Scott Brown - The Stranger (Original Mix)
23. Plus System - Dehumanize (Original Mix)
24. Scott Brown - Hardcore U Know The Score (Original Mix)
What an amazing tracklist! This is what I was looking for! 23 amazing records, truly astonishing tracklist. And all from the mind of the legendary Scotchman, DJ Scott Brown a.k.a Q-Tex a.k.a. Plus System. Now, you might be wondering why I say 23 and not 24? Well, it's got the worst SB record of all time in it, one I simply detest because the original records the lyrics were taken from, is simply the worst record of all time, and I never liked the band anyway.
OK, cut to the chase, it's 'Do It Like We Do'. Is it the Bloodhound Gang? Horrible lyrics. Dreadful band. Nothing that they have made would make me happy. The lyrics are stupid, and ruin the brilliant UK Hardcore sound that only Scott Brown knows how to make. But that's the only negative of this mix.
The best of the best, and I've said it a million times, is 'Make You Freak' by Plus System. Such a catchy and memorable anthem. Doesn't matter where I am: whenever I hear it, it brings a smile on my face, and I cannot stop enjoying life as we know it (see what I did there?).
Audioholik's previous mix was a good 'un, and this one is seriously also as good, maybe even better. Seeing as I'm a full on UK Hardcore fanatic and a huge Scott Brown fan, this mix has made my day! Two Evolution Records mixes in 2 days. The wife must be thinking I've gone mad? Who cares anyway: Evolution Records 24/7, 365 days of the year! Hell yeah!
Thanks Audioholik for a wicked mix! Really enjoyed it!
