Faniac - Ouwe Stijl Is Botergeil (09-11-2019)

If there's one event I would like to go to, it's Ouwe Stijl Is Botergeil. There's nothing that excites me more than the oldskool sound, the early sound. The sound that made me fall in love with Hardcore. And I'm not the only one. This event has been going on for many years now, and they are still going strong. Starting back in 2008, they are still keeping the oldskool sound alive and kicking. And 2020 hasn't even started yet, and they've got two editions planned already! How about that? Early style is butter horny. Damn right it is!

Faniac was one of the DJs performing at last month's edition, alongside DJ Promo, the Destroyer, Bio Forge, Not A DJ, Koney, The Enforcer, Apac, Kaycie, and Xcruciator. Proper oldskool set you would expect, and it's exactly what you get. And you know what? Faniac's set is full of those records, records I've not heard of before! And I'm not kidding! Maybe these are new records in the style of the early Hardcore sound, or genuinely old records, but on compilations I've never heard or seen before. And it gives me a slight erection. Oh gosh, the early sound is just so addictive.

Time for the tracklist. The set itself is rather short (44 minutes long), but within those 44 minutes you do get 17 excellent records. With only 1 ID-less record (if you know it, please comment below), it's an early Christmas present!

01. Enemycore 909 - 1961

02. Hyperactive-D - Ride The Rhythm

03. Tha Real G - Salvation

04. ID - ID

05. Scott Brown - Rave Generator

06. 909 Junkies - Trigger Finger

07. Drokz & Tails - Big Brother Is Not Happy

08. Mr. Brown - Waxation

09. Peckerhead - Fire & Frustration

10. Distorted Dogs - Smoke The Ho

11. Xim - Fused Energies

12. Peckerhead - Real Life Awaits

13. Undunn - Epsilon Eridani

14. Lenz - Trip To DSI

15. Imbezile - 2 My Mind

16. Kamikaze - Trip To aTAMI

17. Lenz - Early Back In Town

I do know some of these artists, like Scott Brown, Drokz & Tails, Peckerhead, but all the others I've not come across. Or maybe I have, but not paid enough attention. Shame on me. Anyway, Faniac's set. It's on Soundcloud and it's a free download. So if you are into Early Hardcore, and you fancy hearing some obscure Hardcore classics, you are in for a treat.

I seriously do not have a clue how he found these gems. I really enjoyed his set. See, this is what I mean by saying that I would like to go to Ouwe Stijl Is Botergeil. I'm digging his set a lot, and the vibes coming through my speakers is pure delight. Don't you rather hear this than the rubbish we've got on our radio nowadays?

Please advise me if I'm wrong, but the record that plays around 6 minutes, is that 'Salvation' by Tha Real G? Whatever the track name, that record is my favourite of this mix. And the last one used in this mix. But the record played around the 6 minute marker just reminds me of the early artcore stuff. The underground sound, remember that?

I've got only love and admiration for this set. Big set by Faniac! I'll make sure that my health increases, and I will visit Ouwe Stijl Is Botergeil before I get too old, and have to rave on the dancefloor with a wheel chair and hearing aids.
