Get It 001: Get Rugged (100% Vinyl Rugged House Mix) (2018)

Pearsall, the man behind Sonic Rampage (the blog website) has uploaded a brand new concept mix on Soundcloud about a month ago. A mix focused on the rugged side of House. Now I'm not familiar with rugged House, but it's full of attitude and Grime. Now, seeing as that is an unusual combination, I got intrigued. Saved it as a favorite, but never got the chance to listen to it. But today I woke up nice and early, and I thought I should give it a go. And here it is.

So Pearsall has made some really interesting mixes in the past, and I am a huge fan of his Soundcloud page. It's always a nice trip back into time, but with his latest mix he has taken us back, yet with a twist. These are all new, or 'new'-ish records. And they are on vinyl! How's that for a change? And the media all told us vinyl was dead? It's still alive and kicking. Not hanging on a thread.

Underneath the mix it states that we should look at this mix in a different way. Think 'Cockney geezer cornering you by the toilets to yell in your ear'. Not had that experience before, but ok. If that's what this mix will do to you, I will certainly not go out in London anymore.

15. 20 Hurts - Proof Positive

I'm a fan of both styles, Grime and House, and yet only 1 name does ring a bell. But all the others are exclusives to me. That makes this mix more special, doesn't it? I should not focus on the artists but on what they produced, and how well Pearsall has mixed it together. But let me just give you a piece of advise: Pearsall never fucks up. He always delivers.

This 50 minute long mix is just what you want. The festive season is coming to an end, but already my head is filled with stupid Christmas songs, and this has taken my mind somewhere else. It feels like I am in another dimension. This nice and calm mix has literally made my day. It might be a tad rougher, but still highly enjoyable.

Not sure of the trackname, but the song that's played around 35 minutes is my favorite. If Pearsall was talking about filth, this is definitely what he was talking about! Fuck me, that's nasty. I have soiled my pants now. That's the moist maker. If it doesn't get you moist, you should simply turn up the volume, and let the song kick you in the nuts.

Another astonishing mix by Pearsall. Nothing to add. Just follow him on Soundcloud and you will NEVER be disappointed.
