Gabber of the 20’s Vol. 4 (2023)

J.O.E. Good old Joe. The channel on Soundcloud that never disappoints. A new mix was uploaded less than 24 hours ago, and I'm already all over it. I do love Gabber/Hardcore Techno, and grew up listening to it, and it's amazing to think that this kind of music is still kept alive. Still sounding awesome and really dope. It's a sound that we all love, appreciate, and wish never would go away. The 90s were simply the best, and the revival of Gabber from that decade is just simply amazing. The more mixes I find, the more hope I gain, with this music remaining as vital and as important as it was during the most important decade of our lives.

So what can we expect from today's mix? The same as the other mixes I listened to. New Gabber/Hardcore Techno anthems, but all made in the present decade. And some of the names you might recognise. Unless you are a full on 20s Gabber fanatic and known them all! I'm still new to this scene, so I'm still discovering new names that are getting my attention and recognition. And in general, they are awesome for keeping it all alive and kicking.

Hearing the first tune start, it immediately takes me back to the 90s. It's funny when you actually think about it. How can a new song take you back, in less than a micro second, to the 90s, without it ever being made in the 90s, or released? It's the sound that you hear, that is so distinctively 90s. You might think that's outdated, but to me it will never be outdated.

The mix is 70 minutes long, so what can you expect to come at you through your speakers?

Oh, this is some next level powerful shit! I don't know roughly 75% of the artists, but who cares? It's all about the music and what is does to me. And to me, it touches my soul and makes me a very happy Dutchman. I feel rejuvenated again!

You cannot get rid of the 90s sound. You simply cannot. It's just too damn awesome. And there's still a craving for it, even 23 years since it ended. And if there wasn't a craving, I would know the world would have lost their mind. How can you not want to hear something new, exciting, and it reminding you of a time in your life when all was well?

This is all new and exciting music, and I love it, to see a mix by J.O.E. appear on Soundcloud. You will instantaneously know that shit is about to go down, and you will be pleased for however long the mix might be! He never disappoints, always delivers. And especially when R.E.T.R.O.'s ' Back From 97' kicks in. Brilliant record.

What a mix! This makes me proud to have lived through the 90s, and still alive to hear the music being made! This is awesome stuff. Smiles for miles, that's for damn sure! Quality mix, but I would not expect anything else from J.O.E.!
