Fracus & Darwinized! (The Vocal Mix) (2022)

It is Tuesday, time for some 'happy Hardcore'. And I don't say that lightly: every Tuesday is should be Happy Hardcore day. Let's make it official, right? And what a way to start this kickstarter idea by having a dedication mix to persuade you. A mix focussed on the mighty UK Hardcore producing duo Fracus & Darwin. If you are unfamiliar with these two names, you need to be educated. But don't worry, uncle TCD is here to help! And together we will make sure they gain more followers, as many as they deserve. But these two have been at the forefront of the UK Hardcore scene for many years, and their music have gained already a huge following all over the world.

You might have seen a few reviews over the years. It was late 2000s when I discovered them, and I'm in possession of a few albums they have released over the years, and you can imagine a review here and there would appear. Over the years they have released brilliant albums, such as 'Balancing Act', 'Point Of No Return' , 'Diversions', and more. But not only that: they have released many awesome mixes on Soundcloud. And as they weren't busy enough: they've performed all over the world, including in a small picturesque youth club in Belgium (where I saw them).

This isn't the first appreciation mix on Soundcloud, Youtube, or Mixcloud, but this is the latest one I found. And it's a special one, as it's focussed on the more melodic/vocally side of Fracus & Darwin. Not that they need vocalists, but it seems that their music always goes next level when they use vocalists. Don't get wrong, they have got some excellent non-vocal songs, but the vocal stuff is just mesmerising. Breathtakingly beautiful, and Alex Threat's latest mix contains only the finest vocal supported tracks. A mix you definitely don't want to miss!

If you seriously never heard of Fracus & Darwin before, this will be a glorious introduction into their wonderful UK Hardcore world they have created. And it's a wonderful world. I would say that their current music is amazing, but let's not forget the early work. Those tunes still stood the test of time, and will become all time UK Hardcore classics.

Let's focus on the tracklist. The tracks selected by Alex are very good. Very melodic, very emotional records. And yes, sometimes on a dancefloor you want to stomp your feet hard and raise your hands high in the air, but sometimes a nice melody and vocals can take you to another level of euphoria, and Fracus & Darwin know exactly how to please the fans. I know from first hand experience.

The tracks are all solid, and it included a few songs which I've not heard before. I might have missed them by accident, but it's not too late to enjoy the musical geniuses called Fracus & Darwin. These tracks are only a handful of tracks: their discography is tremendous! Just have a look at all the other stuff they've made over the years. Astonishingly good stuff.

I am a huge fan, and love each and every track in this mix. Can't pick out one favourite. Alex's mix is good (got some small mixing errors, but nothing major), and highly enjoyable. Go on, I know you want to listen to this, right?
