Guest Mix #2 - DJ LX: Jungle Hardcoreism Part 2 (2019)

DJ Selectabwoy's Soundcloud is a paradise, heaven for those who love the 90s Jungle, Breakbeat and Hardcore sound. I've reviewed many of his mixes in the past, but now it's time for a review of one of the mixes uploaded to his page, mixed by DJ LX. It's called Jungle Hardcoreism. I've missed the first episode of this new mix series, but not to worry: you can still find it on Soundcloud. But our attention goes to the second instalment.

So what can you expect? Pure madness, mixed in the style of the early pirate radio stations. We didn't have many of them in the Netherlands where I grew up (and most of them were not even broadcasting in the area I lived in, so we had basically none, or only shitty ones). But I have heaard a lot of mixes recorded during the early 90s, which were originally broadcasted on pirate stations here in the UK. They played a vital part in the growth of dance music, be it Jungle, Hardcore, Breakbeat, Drum & Bass, and more.

The set is an hour long, and contains records so hot, it should come with a warning from the fire brigade. Do not press play if you cannot handle the heat. But if you are brave enough, you can press play, and you are immediately drawn into this magestic mix.

Have you paid attention and carefully observed the warning? Have you pressed play and couldn't handle the beats, bass and melodies? Shame on you. Was it perfect for you? Well, the warning did not apply to you, so press play again and let the Jungle Hardcoreism take over your Sunday morning/afternoon. Who needs music channels or Spotify when you've got millions of hours on Soundcloud?

Again, I missed the first instalment, so I wasn't aware of this new mix series, but I'm pleasantly surprised. Not that I'm new to the Jungle and Hardcore sound (I'm the complete oppossite of it), but it still amazes me in 2019 that this sound has not aged at all, and still sounds fresh, as if it was made now, instead of the early 90s, especially the year 1993. You cannot believe this is 26 years old.

DJ LX's mix is as good as you wanted it to be. Very good, very dark, very edgy, and oh so underground! This kind of music will not be played at big events in the year of our Lord 2019, but only in the darker and edgy sections of a club, or even at illegal raves. And that's where it supposed to be. This was not created to be liked by people who adore the top 40 and who buy 'NNow This Is...'. This is for the true Junglists only.

I've only got love to give for this mix. I'm really fascinated about the mix, and love LX's selection. Proper oldskool, yet still underground enough in 2019. Only love for this mix. And now, whilst you are pressing play or going to Pornhub (I don't know what you do with your life), I will search for the first mix, and soak up the darkness. Today my life is all about Jungle Hardcoreism. Fuck yeah!
