Hardcore Love (Part Two) (2023)

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Today is the most romantic day of the year, and yet the weather is atrocious, and I'm all alone at home (wife is in the office). It doesn't feel like Valentine's Day, but we will try to remain happy, cheerful, and in love. Because no matter where my wife is, I still love her to bits. And this review is dedicated to her, even though she really doesn't like the music I listen to, which is in this mix. She doesn't understand my obsession with it, but she still loves me, unconditionally, with or without my love for Hardcore music.

I hope you all have a fantastic day. But whatever it is you are doing today, let me introduce you to this mix, made by one of my favourite DJs of all time, Selectabwoy. This mix was released 4 months ago, so it's not a true Valentine's Day mix, but it has a pink heart on the image, and it has the word 'LOVE' written in it, like a little love heart. That makes it perfect for a day like today.

I've got only love and appreciation for the DJ, even though we've never met or spoken to each other, but his mixes always appeal to me, and he speaks to me through his mixes. And he keeps on providing us with new mixes on a nearly weekly basis! How does he find the time to make these perfect mixes? He has made so many mixes, which you can all find on Soundcloud, but they are too many: if I were to only review his mixes, I would be reviewing until I'm a 100 years old! He's got so many, but they are good mixes though, and the reviews will become very boring.

The mix is as tight as you want it to be. It's a good hour-ish session of the finest Hardcore anthems. With some well known and obscure anthems, it's a rollercoaster ride, that's for sure.

  1. N.R.G. - I Need Your Love (Original Mix)

  13. Studio 2 - Dirty Games

  14. Manix - Try To Love Me (Remix)

  15. Fruit & Veg - Love Of The Bongos

  16. Urban Shakedown - Bass Speaker

  17. Origin Unknown - Losing U (Mix 1)

  18. Rainbow Country - It's U

  19. Run Tings - Back Again (Austin Remix)

  20. Bad Influence - Never Too Much (Remix)

  21. Natural Instinct - Pressure

  22. Nookie - Give A Little Love

  23. Citadel Of Kaos - It's Not Over

  24. The Prodigy - Your Love

The mix is really good, but leave that to Selectabwoy: he always delivers excellence. The mix is roughly an hour long, but you go through these tracks like a knife goes through butter. Quick, easy, and it spreads easily. Unless you've got butter that lied to you. In that case, this mix might not be your cup of tea. How did I just compare this mix to butter?

Looking at the list, only a handful of songs I know, or artists but the majority are a bit obscure, underground. And even though I don't know, I still like the songs massively. Especially when 'Dirty Games' hits. It hits very hard, and I loose myself completely.

A great selection. It's not your standard 'Valentine's Day' mix, that's for sure, but it can be highly enjoyable if you and your partner like this kind of music. If you two do, enjoy this mix. Selectabwoy has put a lot of effort in this mix, and it shows. It's an excellent mix, but I wasn't expecting anything else. He's a boss, a definite boss!

This mix slaps. And I freaking LOVE it. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
