Hardcorn 4 Everypony!!!! (Vol. 2) (2023)
Last year I reviewed a mix I found, which was called 'Hardcorn 4 Everypony', and the mix was done by Fluttershy. Now I was a bit flabbergasted by the title, as I did not have a clue (and to this day I still don't know what it means), but I liked the mix. 2 weeks ago the second instalment was released on Soundcloud, so I had to jump on it, see what kind of Hard corn was in this mix. Still no ponies or actual corn, so I'm not sure if I will ever understand the title, but at least the music is decent!
I looked at the tracklist and it made me happy. Not because of me knowing the records. The opposite. I know the artists but the songs them, I've never heard or seen before. There's only 2 or 3 that I actually recognise, which makes a change. It is refreshing to discover new songs by well established producers. But not only do you get that, there's also a lot of unknown artists I've not heard before, or seen before. It's interesting and quite quirky.
So this mix has got some early Hardcore, Happy Hardcore, Gabber, UK Hardcore, and bouncy Techno. It's a mix of literally everything I like. So let's dive straight into the corn, and let's see if Fluttershy's mix is worth listening to. If you have listened to the first instalment already, you were waiting for the second one to arrive. Count your blessings, as it has now happened.

Now this is certainly a quirky mix! And I'm not lying. Normal mixes start off slow, and then go harder, but not Fluttershy's mix. Start off hard, and slowing down. First the Hardcore, and then the happier side to Hardcore. It does work in a strange way, and I do admire Fluttershy for making it work.
Now the big question: do you prefer the harder or the happier/softer side of Hardcore? I might be a bit biased and for me the answer is obvious (it's happy Hardcore all the way!), but I'm curious about you, the reader.
I do love the vibe, and especially when 'Sincerely Yours' is played. Haven't heard that song in ages, and it's nice to hear it again. What a smashing record. It makes me smile for hours on end, and it's one of those underrated Happy Hardcore classics that deserve so much more credit for what it is. And what it is, is a powerful anthem.
Not all the records made me dance vigoruously. Not a fan of 'Here We Go Fuck' . Maybe that's the limit for me, that's just too cheesy for my liking?
The mix itself is good, some recording errors (quality goes up and down), but that's to be expected: vinyl will always give you more than you expect. All in all a great mix that made me smile. And you can't ask for more, right?
Still don't know where the corn is? Is it because some songs are corny? But where are the ponies?
