Happy Hardcore Classics 57 'Scott Brown: The Anthems '96-'99' (2016)

Scott Brown. The ultimate legend of the UK Hardcore/Happy Hardcore genre. The anthem making machine from Scotland. If you never heard of UK Hardcore or Happy Hardcore before and you needed to be introduced properly, you should look out for mixes made by Scott Brown or contain Scott Brown records (like the one you are about to listen to). This man has single handedly shapen Hardcore and made it a better place for us ravers. No matter which event or where the location might have been: play a Scott Brown record and the rave would go off! Madness all the way!

Be it as Scott Brown, Q-Tex, Interstate, or whichever alias it might have been, his influence has been tremendous for years. He's still seen as the King of Happy Hardcore by many, and his music is still played all over the world. Of course he wasn't the first to make/play it, but he has been a pioneer since the music was created. He influenced many other artists,and he is still going strong today!

The Soundcloud channel 'History Of Happy Hardcore' made this mix 3 years ago, showcasing how awesome Scott Brown was (and still is) in the late 90s, when he kept on making anthems after anthems. Seeing as this is the second instalment, you might miss a few well known records, but why not check out the first mix? Spread the SB love all around!

Now, that's a tracklist and a half! Bloody Nora, THOHH have made this wicked tribute mix to the legend, using a lot of obscure Scott Brown records I've not heard before. And I considered myself a huge fan. What an embarassing moment, if truth be told. But to defend myself: at least I know the mainstream records.

This mix is 3 hours and 20 minutes long. So no quick mixing/short radio edits, only the length necessary to get the message across. And people seem to like this a lot! Who doesn't want to hear piano focussed Hardcore records? A lovely bit of Happy Hardcore from 96 to 99? And the worst thing is, I can't pick a favourite record. Just simply because of the amount of awesome records used for this mix.

I think the message behind this mix is to sit down, press play and have a rave! Have a blast! Enjoy the madness that was created by Scott Brown. The ultimate hero. The unsung God of Happy Hardcore.
