HAMdj - Ouwe Meuk (part 2) (2017)


I've been going through this phase now where I am literally listening to 90s Hardcore and nothing else. Is that a bad thing? Absolutely not! The last couple of days it's been Hardcore or Happy Hardcore, and it takes me back to a wonderful time when I was still a little Dutchman, and was living still in the Netherlands, happy as Larry. I discovered Hardcore back in 1993, and never looked back. From that moment onward, it has been a blessing in disguise. Not many of my friends liked it, but who cared? I certainly didn't care less. It was my thing, and no one else!

So why am I discussing this? Well, today's mix is another Hardcore mix, with tracks from the 90s! The mix was made a handful years ago by HAMdj, and before you start questioning yourself if this is the UK Hardcore and Drum & Bass DJ Ham, it's not. Not much is there on his Soundcloud page, but the most important bit is this mix. It's 'Ouwe Meek', which means 'Old Shit' in English. Yes, that's a rough translation. If anyone from the Netherlands disagrees with the translation, apologies. Been here too damn long, loosing the King's Dutch sadly.


As always, I talk about the tracklist before showing it to you, but let's dive straight on it. Here's the tracklist for you Hardcore nutters!


  1. The Prophet - With Your Love

  2. Duo Penotti - Addicted 2 Raves (Buzz Fuzz Remix)

  3. Davie Forbes - Apocalypse Now

  4. Gizmo - 2 The Rescue

  5. Jeremy - The Flow

  6. E-Rick & Tactic - Bring The Noise

  7. DJ Sim - Cartoons In Progress

  8. Promo - Bad Boy DJ

  9. Delerium & Omar Santana - Drop Da Beat

  10. Delerium & Buzz Fuzz - Immortality

  11. Tiny Tot - Discoland (DJ Isaac Remix)

  12. Bertocucci Feranzano - Sax B4 Dinner

  13. Pino D'ambini - Up & Down Ballz

  14. E-Rick & Tactic - Don't Like Mondays

  15. Boombastic - Booooom!!!

  16. E-Rick & Tactic - Stop The Music

  17. Dr. Phil Omanski & Jeremy - Feel The Rhythm (Bounty Mix)

  18. E-Rick & Tactic - Hysterical Drumbeats (Chosen Few Mix)

  19. Bertocucci Feranzano - E-Motion (Buzz Fuzz Mix)

  20. The Scotchman - Oblivion

  21. Angel - Take Me Away (E-Rick & Tactic Remix)

  22. Devious - Ice Cream

  23. Lancinhouse meets The Stunned Guys - Colds Getting Bigger

  24. Dano - Welcome To The Thunderdome

  25. Wasting Program - Nothing Left But Destruction

  26. C-Tank - Nightmares Are Reality


Wow. This covers a lot of the 90s. From the early Thunderdome CDs to the later ones. A bit of everything, from Gabber to Happy Hardcore to Hardcore. And that, ladies and gentlemen, I like. Not just one style but multiple. To be fair, the line between Happy and normal Hardcore was at best very flimsy. This mix shows that it should have been classed as Hardcore, nothing else.


The tracklist is gorgeous. Really wicked anthems. But one thing I've noticed is that HAMdj loves E-Rick & Tactic. So many records by these two producers. And you can tell he loves the early sound a lot, which I underline. Who doesn't love the early stuff?


It's a nice mix to hear on this windy yet warm Tuesday. It fits in well with my Hardcore mood. Tracks selected are really good, with the exception of a few: who actually likes 'Booooom!!!', 'Don't Like Mondays' and 'Ice Cream', right? I can only appreciate these songs when I'm completely wasted.


A good mix, with a few mixing errors. It's not perfect, but were you expecting perfection? It's an alright mix with slammers, especially DJ Gizmo's '2 The Rescue'. Such an underrated early Hardcore anthem.
