Frantic Freak - Golden Era 2 (Early Hardcore Mix) (2016)

It's Sunday morning, and we need something to wake us the fuck up. Early Hardcore would be a good suggestion, I presume? So voila, a mix you would really want to hear. Early Hardcore, the finest records from the 90s. Mixed by Frantic Freak, you have heard about him, right? If you haven't, maybe it's time for you now to start Googling him, and find out who he is. But for now, let's focus on his mix he made back in 2016, for the 10th edition of Decade.

The line-up was good: Ruffneck, Bass-D, The Destroyer, Leviathan, Buzz Fuzz, Cixx vs Vinyl Junk, Arjuna, Sequence, Lenz, Skorp, Raymion, Iniga, and MC I See. Of course you cannot visit this event, unless you have harnessed the power of time travel, which I highly doubt. The only thing I would urge you to do, is to shut up, turn the volume up, and press play on this really awesome Early Hardcore mix. The good thing about this mix, is that Frantic Freak knows how to please the fans, and throws in the most well known anthems, and also a handful of underground, obscure anthems. So the result is a very good and entertaining mix.

Here's the tracklist for you Early Hardcore craving people!

01. Diss Reaction - Jiieehaaaa

02. DJ Hixxy & Lady Trixxy - One Spliff

03. Party Animals - Used & Abused

04. Bruyaa & Ozonic - Welcome To Deathrow

05. Chosen Few - Name Of The DJ

06. DJ Buzz Fuzz - Destroyer

07. DJ Jappo & Lancinhouse - EXLXAXL

10. Flamman & Abraxas - Drugs (Juggernaut Remix)

11. Bio-Forge - Turbulence

12. DJ Delirium & Guitar Rob - Speaker Murder (DJ Promo Remix)

13. DJ Promo - Beat Ya Brain

14. Brainiac - The Rhyme Goes On

15. DJ Dave & The Chicago Hardcore Party Zone- Yo Mr Dj

16. DJ Dave - Listen...

17. Manu Le Malin - Watch 'em All Drop

18. Stickhead & Don Demon - Demonhead

A wicked tracklist. I told you that it was going to be a good mix, eh? And also that I already pointed out that Frantic Freak used both well known AND obscure anthems to compose this mix. Haven't heard 3 songs for at least a decade, even longer!

The hour has flown by. Frantic's selection just takes me straight back to my childhood. Epic anthems, and they've stood the test of time. And I'm not being ridicilous: Early Hardcore events are hot! And people are craving these anthems more than anything else in life! Hardcore is life, remember that.

I do love them all, these anthems. Even those that have been played over and over again. But which is my favourite? Well, you might not have expected it, but 'Welcome To Deathrow'. Heard it the first time on Thunderdome 96, and I fell in love. A wicked and dark anthem. Good choice, mr Frantic.

A wonderful mix. This has made my day. Sunday? Check. Early Hardcore? Check. Speakers on max? Not yet..... but now... check.
